Stuck in Demo Mode

We bought a demo model from a show, and don't know how to turn the demo mode off. The solutions suggested for other microwaves don't work on this one. Help! Please!

SOURCE: Stuck in Demo mode

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 maybe an hour.

If that doesn't work, check the owner's manual.

You should be able to download your Panasonic owner's manual here.

It's stuck on demo. How do I get back to normal?


Maybe you can provide make and model of your microwave...
But let me tell you, I've bought and used up to now about a dozen of microvawes and NEVER had anyone with a "demo" mode. Who told you it's in a DEMO mode?
I guess it's simply not working, so return it from where you bought it and claim if it can be changed on warranty.

It keeps on showing demo and we dont know how to get it started again


Depends on the model but here is a video for one model: http://www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/vSupportHowToGuideDetail?storeId=15001&idval=UCM_STG_CNT_037074&catname=Microwave+Ovens&title=How%20to%20deactivate%20the%20Demo%20Mode

In most Panasonic models, the DEMO mode is turned on or off with "Fn + 5" key combination. So if you are stuck in Demo mode, press Fn followed by 5 it will bring you out of it. Other times, it could be Fn + 0 and then Press 1 to turn on the demo mode and 2 to turn it off.
If there is no Fn key on the touch pad then it could be something like tapping the ON or OFF key four times

Is in demo mode and I can't get out of it


I am familiar with TV sets being stuck in demo mode, but I've never heard of a microwave doing this. The fix for this on a TV is usually pushing a combination of buttons at the same time.

Call Sears or Best Buy and talk to an appliance salesman, or call a repair service. They surely wouldn't charge you anything for giving out this info.

GE Microwave DEMO MODE


I just bought a condo with a GE Spacemaker Mod# JVM1860SD
that was stuck in demo mode. (This mod# has been replaced by the JVM1870*** series)

I called GE twice in two days, and finally got someone who had the solution (and it worked):

  1. Unplug the unit for at least 30 seconds
  2. Plug the unit back in DO NOT SET THE CLOCK
  3. While the unit is still "booting up" and the display screen is lit with gibberish, HOLD THE POWER LEVEL AND THE ZERO BUTTON for at least 5 seconds.
  4. After 5 seconds, the screen will display "demo mode off"
It messed me up at first because the power level and zero pads don't beep when the unit is booting up... but it worked.
- Again, this is for the GE Spacemaker 1860-1870 series models only - The women who gave me instructions said she had different demo mode unlock methods for the 1400, 3670, 2070 etc... so call GE if you have a different model.
P.S. my model looks like this - the keypad setup is key http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SPECPAGE&SKU=JVM1870SK&SITEID=GEA
