The microwave shutting down and reseting is a thermal cavity fuse mounted on the magnetron most likely.Your cavity TCO may be shutting down the microwave simply because the vent in the rear is blocked causing the magnetron to overheat. This is especially true if your microwave mounts above the stove. Clean up the vent on the back side of the microwave using some mean green or 409.

Here is a service manual, the TCO feature is explained on page 10.

I have a marvelous video I found on you tube and more HERE

How do I unlock the touchpad of my Profile 2.0 Spacemaker Microwave Oven # JVM2070


calvin,
If you have access to where your microwave is plugged in, unplug it for a few minutes and then plug it back in. This will reset your contol panel. Then follow your book directions to reset the time on the clock. Hope this helps!

I have a GE sensor microwave oven. Tried to heat food and sensor eror came on. Everything is running even the timer but no sound but the timer is running. Cant this be reset pls help


HELLO.

This is the solution to reset your microwave.

1 Pressing the clock button will display the time. You can also use this to know what time it is while cooking.

1. Set the clock by pressing the "Clock" button.

2. Turning the dial on the GE sensor microwave oven will display the hour of the day. Once you have found the correct hour, press the dial in.

3. Again, turn the dial to set the minutes of the day. When this is completed, you will need to press the dial in again on the GE sensor microwave oven.

4. When the time and minutes are set, turn the dial again for a.m. or p.m. Then you will need to press the dial in to save the settings.

5. Press the "Start" button to allow the clock to begin on the GE sensor microwave oven.

Thanks.

Cannot control Microwave, no action when clearing, setting, etc


This sounds like a door switch or key pad problem. If you haven't already tried this..... unplug the unit from the wall for atleast 1 hour and plug it back in. See if this helps.

Timer runs fast, plus no heat Maytag MMV1153BAW


No... you are not in a microwave induced time warp...
Your microwave oven needs a "reboot". The same thing happened to me.
Unplug your microwave oven, wait about a minute (more or less), plug it back in. Try setting/running your kitchen timer, boil water, etc. Your timer software on the microwave should be reset.

Emerson microwave, #MW8119SB, push start button to start cooking


Replace the fuse with a ceramic fuse from Home depot! costs less than $3 and it will fix the problem. I had all the same problems as everyone else, you name it my microwave had it! you must remember replace it with a ceramic fuse! not a glass one. I know people say its the switchboard and all that nonsence but I promise you, the fuse plays a majoe roll in the microwave not working properly. Even though it doesnt look broken, a junky fuse can cause your appliance to do very strange things. I replaced mine 6 months ago and it works like its fresh out of the box.

If you are handy take it apart. Somewhere inside is a small switch that the door activates. Switch might be broken or a small plastic actuator might be broken. What do you have to lose at this point except time?

Microwave resets when started


Could you explain what you mean by "resets similar to power cycle after 2 seconds of running"? Do the characters on the display get garbled, or is it like someone just unplugged the oven and plugged it back in? GE had a rash of "underperforming" magnetrons on several models. They would sometimes end up with stirrer damage, bad diodes, waveguide damage, and/or interference which "scrambles the brains" of the unit and makes them reset like they had been unplugged. The usual fix is to replace the magnetron, stirrer and high-voltage diode as a kit, and they used to cover this, but may not any more. Sometimes the unit gets run too long in a failing state and the waveguide and chassis of the oven get damaged. In that case, the oven would have to be replaced. To get the details and see if yours is affected, see this bulletin: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf Even if your exact unit is not on the list, you may have this problem. You can contact GE Customer Relations at 1-800-386-1215 and tell them your problem and they will put you in touch with a local authorized servicer. Feel free to post back if you need more info. I appreciate your thoughtful rating of my answer.
