SOURCE: Need new light bulb socket for GE spacemaker mircrowave

The bulbs are glued in at the factory. Unplug the microwave and see if you can remove the base of the bulb from the socket with needle nose pliers. You may have to twist the heck out of the bulb base but it should come out. If you do need a new socket it is available at www.geappliances.com under parts and accessories. Or call 1-800-626-2002 for GE factory parts

SOURCE: Not working

It sounds like 2 separate problems:

1) One of the cooktop lights may have shorted. Sometimes this happens and causes damage (repairable) to the control circuit board. Sometimes it will result in the lights or fan not working, or not turning on.

2) You may have a bad magnetron. See this FixYa solution.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We had a power surge and now the microwave does not work, model number MH1160XSB-0 whirlpool, what could be the problem? We put a fuse in and it kept blowing.


Model MX6110XB. Nothing worked. LCD panel was dead. Unplugged and replugged; and everything works.

This fix described for the GE Spacemaker. They say problem result of a power surge. Apparently applies to different manufacturers; or does GE make Whirlpools?

Our GE Spacemaker XL 1800 microwave's controls are locked


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

Random beeping and panel buttons not working


There may be a failure of some type in the system processor area.

Maybe some of the steam from the bioling water and oil and water from the cooking got inside on to the circuit board, and caused some damage.

It is also possible that the heat from the stove did some damage.

It is also possible that there was simply a failure in the system processor area.
