Open Question

Hi - I have a GE zem200sy microwave. It randomly stops working. When I unplug/replug, it then works fine, but inevitably the issue returns. Short of replacing it, can you recommend a solution. Thnaks

F3 occurs if the controller detects a key shorted for more than 60 seconds. Luckily, on this model, the "keypanel" as it's called is available as a separate part. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering the model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 The "keypanel" is shown as reference number 44 on that exploded view.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

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 "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

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

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.

Nothing is working - it is dead - we have checked the breaker which is fine - we have unplugged and replugged it - any suggestions or is it time to get a new microwave? It is the GE Spacemaker 1000 watts


You have a blown fuse. There are about 5 reasons why this can happen. It can cost from 10$ if you do it yourself to 150$ to fix a microwave. So the cost of a replacement is always something you have to balance out. If you are technical, and own a meter, you can fix it yourself (with some parts)

Microwave stopping working


check the fuse on the microwave. if its busted, something shorted out in the oven that tripps off your breaker. it could be your inverter.
