Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

GE Customer Service is here.

(Just for the sake of discussion, have the stove top lights gone out recently? Quite often they will short, causing fan or light trouble.)

Micowave goes on for few seconds then blows fuse. replaced magnetron tube and still does same thing


If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

Ge microwave works intermittent, when not working display reads F-3 and key pad does not respond


This code will occur if a shorted key panel is detected continuously over 60 seconds. Replace key panel (also called touch pad).

Kenmore micowave


IF IT IS THE KEYPAD THAT IS LOCKED, ONE OF THE TOUCH PADS SHOULD BE HELD FOR 5 SECONDS TO UNLOCK THE
TOUCH CONTROL.YOUR INSRTUCTION MANUAL WILL TELL
YOU WHICH PAD TO HOLD. IF NOT AVAILABLE, TRY EACH PAD, ONE AT A TIME. HOLD EACH PAD FOR 5 SECONDS.
IF NO RESPONSE, TRY THE NEXT ONE. WHEN YOU FIND THE ONE THAT UNLOCKS THE CONTROL, WRITE IT DOWN
FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. THAT PAD WILL ALSO LOCK THE CONTROL WHEN HELD FOR 5 SECONDS.

My Touch pad does not work, can someone help? kenmore mocrowave model 721.62624200 microwave buttons work sporatically. if i push in a downward motion they work sometimes microwave blew a fuse a couple of...


It sounds like the keypad is worn out. The fact that you can get them to work sometimes by what direction you push on them, tells me that the contacts are not working correctly.

Did you have this problem prior to the fuse blowing or did it start after you replaced the fuse?

I don't believe the fuse blowing is related to the keypad problem. I also don't believe that you have a microprocessor problem because you say that the function buttons work but the number keys don't work right. If the microprocessor was faulty, it would not be able to read any of the keys.

The fact that the number keys are not working doesn't surprise me. When you go to cook something, you will press the number keys several times, while only pressing start or stop once. This is why your number keys have worn out first. These keys have a limited number of cycles (presses) and it sounds like its time for a new keypad.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck!

Your Control Key Pad is a circuit with each function and button a switch. The pad on your TV Remote, and Telephone is no different. The Key Pad is failing, It will only get worse. Determine if you can replace the Touch (Key) Pad. Not the Control Circuit, just the Touch Pad. Sometimes you can get it seperate. It connects by a Flex Cable to the Control Circuit.

Touch Pad


Touch pads are not the most reliable things. It sounds as though one of the keys is stuck on. There is nothing you can do for this, as there are no user serviceable parts inside, but there are voltages present which are INSTANTLY LETHAL, & may persist even if the unit is unplugged. Check your local thrift stores, as used microwaves are often sold there very cheaply, often as low as $5.
