Hi Melissa. Push the clock button then set the correct time AND then push the clock button a second time. THIS is such a common problem, and so easy to forget!

New unit used 3 days. Microwave beeps and screen goes to menu, or set time screen. Sometimes changes the date all by itself. Does this in the middle of the night all night long.


I advice you to contact service if it has guarantee. This seems to be a psychological problem about your oven(!). Technical person need to do an electronic research surgery on its board to see if there is any wrong thing.

TO MAKE YOUR MICROWAVE WORK AS REQUIRED BY YOU.TAKE THE RESET STEP

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.

Everything works. Time, fan, turntable, light. It


Magnetron and accompanying high voltage diode are usually to blame. Everything else works but the magnetron isn't resonating (providing the proper energy to excite your water molecules).
An appliance repairman can change it for you (typically $180) or you can get a new microwave.

My microwave


Hello,

I’ve read through your problem in an attempt to find a solution to my own similar issue with my microwave oven. Other solutions (like unplug appliance overnight and reconnect to power source the next morning) did not work for my appliance.

Just as I was about to call it quits and go out to purchase a new microwave; I gave it one last try. This time, instead of pressing any and every single button on the keypad, I decided to press BOTH the "Stop/Clear" AND "Start" buttons AT THE SAME TIME. . . . . Voilà! This worked for me, but sadly, it's now May-2008 and I'm pretty sure your own microwave is long gone, since your posting appears to have been quite some time ago. Well, hopefully others that stumble through these pages with similar issues may find some assistance with my approach. Oh, and btw. . .I got this idea (which worked) from remembering the instructions on how to reset my cellphone. Many thanks, ~paul

Changing the power level


I had the same problem. All you need to do is put in your cook time first, then adjust the power level. So time cook, whatever # of minutes, power level, then # power level. Hope this helps.

You need to press clock 3 times, then start 3 times and then clear/reset 3 times. Then you can reset the clock by pressing clock 1 change the time and press clock again.
