Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a recently purchased microwave since CHristmas. It was working wonderfully. Recently, I moved and plugged the microwave back in. THe light is on but will not program anything. I tried to plug into another socket. Still the light goes on, but will not let me plug in anything. The motor sounds like it is running, but nothing is happening. The turn table does not even move.

We have the same model. It's a piece of garbage. I loved the retro oval window and all and the size was perfect for our space. Then, the paint started chipping off the inside front, the timer started working intermittently, and the oven would just quit in the middle of the cooking cycle! Today, it finally just up and died. I unplugged and replugged it. No go. Finished cooking on stove top. My suggestion? Do like we're going to do and go buy another microwave...not another GE!

Good luck!

Recently purchased this microwave (4-5 months ago) 5E error light comes on. Unplugged worked for short period - lights came on and off, things started beeping and the 5E came back on. Have repeated this...

"SE" means you have a shorted membrane keypad. It's not uncommon for it to be intermittent or partially operable.

Since it's under warranty, I would contact Samsung for a free fix. See your owner's manual.

Recently the light flickers and gets dimmer, then back to normal, several times while heating something in the oven Just wondered if this is some simple thing to take care of, or should we consider...

Sounds like an arcing switch or connection, or maybe the light itself is not making a good connection. Check the plug in the outlet socket to see if it gets hot after heating something. Wiggle the cord to see if the light flickers. The door switch is a microswitch type and should make a positive 'click' when operated.

Light, turntable and fan don't work

Possibly the light bulb has blown, which has blown on a track on the board which has taken out the turntable motor and the fan. Also, there could be a problem with the door switch.

Microwave causes all appliances to shut off

A surge protector will not help. The circuit that you have the microwave plugged too is overloaded or the breaker is weak.
You need to find out which breakers in your switch box operate which outlets. Then you may be able to move some of the appliances to different recepticles that are on different circuits.

Turn the lights on in all the rooms.
Got to your switch box and turn off one of the single switches(not the ones that are two switches hooked together).
Then go to each room and check to see which lights have went out. Take a lamp or small appliance to each wall plug-in and see if it has power.
When you find out everything that switch controls, write it on a piece of paper so you will know in the future what that circuit has on it.
Turn that switch back on and repeat the process with the next switch and so on and so forth until you have written down what each breaker controls.
Now you will have some idea which circuits have the most load and which ones you can move something to.
You also need to call your landlord or building super to check to make sure the breakers in the switch box are in good condition.
Hope this helps.
