This is a safety feature of the microwave. Unplug it and leave the door open for about 10 minutes and it should work again with no problems.
P.S. My kids overheat mine all the time making pop corn.

There could be a connection problem in the electrical outlet the microwave is plugged into or anywhere in that circuit all the way back to your electric breaker panel. It sounds like the microwave is losing power and resetting. WARNING: Any type of electrical work should only be completed by persons qualified to do so.

The problem is in the microwave oven, you have a short in the power supply or it could be a defective door switch, either way the unit needs to be checked out.

My blender won't power on, the lights don't turn on. I've had the blender for 1 year and have never had any problems with it. In the past month it would only work intermittently, and now it doesn't work...


sometimes something (food etc) gets "stuck" in the lock mechanism, preventing it from turning. unplug the blender and give the locking mechanism a cleaning with a bottle brush or rinsing it under very hot water. also the lock could be broken/chipped, also preventing it from turning.

i must admit that I broke my locking mechanism 5 years ago by not "seating" it correctly and forcing it. my hubby somehow removed! the locking mechanism but now it goes on - turns - as soon as I plug my blender in (because the stop/lock doesn't exist anymore). so I must be very careful to always have the lid on before I plug it in. but it's a braun blender and I love it. so i've kept it all this time.

Spacesaver powers off 2 seconds after resetting clock and time...


The clue is that you have to reset the clock. You are losing power somehow. the Main Board thinks it is being unplugged and it resets the clock and you have to start all over. The fact that after so many times it will finally work tells me that whatever bad connection you have is finally getting hot enough to expand and make a good enough connection to keep working. Intermittant connections are the worse to find. A lot of trial and error to find the problem. can be bad fuse and fuse holder ( in the unit), bad outlet, loose wire at circuit breaker, loose wire at outlet. Even a loose breaker where it snaps onto the buss bar in the Breaker Box. Etc, it an really drive you nuts trying to find it. Try the unit in a totally different area making sure it is on a compleately different circuit breaker and see what it does, if the problem follows the unit, the problems is in the unit. If not, electrical problems, outlet, breaker, panel,

GE Spacemaker xl1800 microwave oven randomly turns off


While you checked the wall receptacle it could be a loose connection in your breaker panel where the breaker snaps into the buss bar. Try the unit in an outlet on a totally different breaker and see if you have the same problem. I also say this a lot, if you have a bad fuse holder in the unit it can make the fuse go bad by betting hot and melting so you could have either a bad or weak fuse holder or bad wire connections to the fuse holder. These companies are using some pretty cheap fuse holders these days!!!

There is an internal fuse, and also a couple of thermostats, and I would be suspicious of the thermostat on or near the magnetron.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It helps with troubleshooting.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
