    The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

    Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

Sounds like the keypad is okay, unless it might be intermittent.

Your wall voltage is within the proper range.

It sounds like it might be bad connections on the control board causing functional and display problems.

I work on control panels, actually, but I can't find any service data (yet?) on this model.

There should be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Did you find it?

Any chance you could scan and e-mail it to me?

Please feel free to contact me directly.

How do I unlock the key pad? The display shows locked and I don't know how it locked.


Here you go.

The Child Lock shuts down the control panel pads to prevent
unintended use of the microwave oven.
When the control is locked, only the Vent Fan and Light pads will
function.
To Lock/Unlock Control: The microwave oven and Timer must
be off. Touch and hold START for 5 seconds until 2 tones sound
and a lock icon appears on the display. Repeat to unlock and
remove the lock icon from display.

Microwave will turn on by itself and display PAN on screen.


Does everything come on by itself or is it just a fan that comes on? If so, is it a convection oven?

Microwave starts running on it's own


There is a short in the cntrol board. I have seen problems arise like this from mice, spiders and other insects. Power fluctuations can also trick the control into activating. ERIC

GE Microwave quit


Hats off to your 20 year old GE machine. That is the the longest lasting microwave I have heard of. When they finally go out, they are done, there is nothing left to even do with them. Most of the parts are obsolete. However you might find a appliance store that still has one similiar to yours in their backroom that they use for spare parts for those like you who might need it. You might take it to them to see if it is worth repair.

I can say this, after 20 long years, the machine will cost more to fix, and for what you will spend on repair, you can buy a different one that can also be energy effiecient.
