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

When you push cook time and a time, or just hit the auto 1,2,3,or 4 minutes, it lights up on the display like it is cooking, with the timer till finished going and everything, but it does not actually...


Highly likely your microwave has "failed".
Down inside the microwave is a part called the Magnetron. This is the part, (about the size of your fist), that makes the sound waves to cook the food.
On some models, it can fail, whilst all the other stuff works.
3 possibilities:
1) You need a fuse replaced.
2) You need a capacitor replaced (That part "starts" the magnetron) or
3) you need a new magentron.
In any regard, very often people will not opt to have it repaired, because the labor & parts can cost more than a new Microwave.
God bless your efforts.

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.
