I have a microwave model # R-308NW. When I press


if when it shuts off clock resets to first plugged in state, sounds as if control panel is being reset by something (failure of part, or power surge) if clock is still ok and maintains correct time , I'll bet if you notice the cooliing fan is not running correctly (by sound it makes) in those two seconds, this will over heat magnetron and shut off on thermal hi temp (safety) if so fan will need to be serviced by a professional

Sounds like its running, but will not heat


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire microwave, model# MWV150KBA, sounds like it is running but will not heat. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes.

Once power is restored, the first thing you will need to do is set the clock. You will do this by pressing the "Clock" button once for AM and twice for PM, enter in the time, and press the "Clock" button again.

Put a cup of water in for about a minute. If the water does not get warm, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your microwave and determine why it is not heating. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

If you try to heat something for a minute , the microwave will turn on for about 15 seconds then shut off . It doesn't even seem to warm the food.


It may need a reset. You can do that by unplugging the power for a minute or two, then plugging it back in and setting the clock.

If it still fails, you may have a failing cooling fan or a problem on the control circuit board.

4 Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the GE microwave back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the microwave's memory. You will need to reset the time of day if you perform a hard reset.
5 Reset the time of day. Press the "Clock" button, and turn the dial to set the hours. Press the dial to enter. Follow the same procedure for the minutes and a.m. or p.m. Press the "Start" button to start the clock.

Thanks.

I am trying to set the kitchen timer on my older spacemaker microwave for 2 hours and am unable to do so ... Am I trying to do something impossible?


The first step is to set the clock. To do this, push clock, set the time using the key pad and then PUSH clock a second time.

Once that is done you can set the timer by pushing timer, putting in the number of minutes you want and pushing start.

Intermittent reminder beeper won't shut off


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

WHEN PRESSING COOK TIME OVEN CLICKS ON FOR ONE SECOND AND RESETS CLOCK


Please try on some other power point as if there is loose contact or sparking in point which cause to switch off as soon as you start because of heavy current drawn by oven and clock also resets. If not solved even then must have some short circuit or over loading in timer circuit or magnetron. in this case you have to call for a service engineer.
