Sometimes oven does not work. when ya hit start it just clicks - the screen looks normal for about 2seconds & then shows the clock time.

Sounds like is what's happening:

Put in time, push start and unit runs for 2 seconds, relay clicks, unit goes off. Cook time on display goes off and clock time comes back.

That would be a bad upper interlock switch and charred connector. If so, see:

The microwave looks like it is working but no matter what I do there is no heat. I put in a cup of coffee and hit the minute button. It turned on and goes around but the coffee is cold. So I tried...


Below is the solution on how to make our microwave heat food.

1 Remove oven racks and place them in soapy water to soak.

2 Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  • 3 Turn the oven off and spray the inside with oven cleaner.
  • 4 Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  • 5 Wipe the cleaner and dirt away with a damp sponge, rinsing frequently.
  • 6 Dry with a soft cloth.

  • Thanks.

    The colon between the numbers on the clock, example 8:00 won't stop blinking even after I set the clock and hit the clock button again.

    Sometimes the correct procedure for setting the clock is to press the CLOCK or TIME OF DAY button, then enter the time on the keyboard, then press the START button instead.

    Otherwise, as long as you can enter a cooking time and your oven operates normally, then don't worry about it. On some models it is normal for the colon on the clock display to blink all the time.

    Good luck.

    Have ge model je1860 turns on but when you hit cook nothing happens is it the turn table motor. i don't want to do trial and error on parts.naturally the fuse is good

    I'll presume you can program it ( set the length of time you want to cook)
    Does the timer count down?
    Does the turntable ( if you have one) turn?
    If everything else seems to work properly and it just doesn't cook more then likely the magnetron is bad

    I have Emerson Microwave #mw8999sv which has the Express Cook option- cooking 1 - 6 minutes. How do I cook for 1 minute 30 seconds, etc.? Thank you.

    The owner's manual is here. On page 10 we find:

    1. Press the POWER button; the Microwave and High
    Cook indicators will light and “PL 10” will light in the
    2. Press the POWER button different times to set the
    desired power; the display will show the percentage
    you chose. If selecting power level 70%-10%, the
    Low Cook indicator will light instead of the High
    Cook indicator.
    3. Press number keys to set the desired cooking time.
    4. Press the START/+30SEC. button to start cooking;
    the Microwave and one of the Cook indicators will
    blink and the display will countdown the remaining
    cooking time in minutes and seconds. It will beep
    five times when cooking is completed.

    First enter the cooking time just like normal, but then you hit the power button and then hit the digit indicating the power level you want. THEN hit start and it will start cooking.

    Cook time button problems

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

    Please reply back here and let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

    It may have a bad door switch, and we can help you check into that. The first test for that is to try it while gently lifting up and then while gently pushing down on the door.

    Comes on when you open door, and now it finally quit working

    I think you've put up with enough hassle from this unit and should get another one. Intermittant flakey problems are hard (read expensive) to fix.
