Question about Microwave Ovens

My son thought he set the timer for 45 minutes but instead it was cooking for that long. It is a 2007 GE 1850S Ahora microwave. It now does not light up or work. Thanks

It sounds like you may have a shorted cook relay on the control circuit board which can be repaired simply and inexpensively.

A YouTube video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes, is here.

It sounds like instead of an overheated magnetron thermostat tripping the power, you now have a defective door switch.

Our door switch help file is here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

I have Emerson Microwave #mw8999sv which has the Express Cook option- cooking 1 - 6 minutes. How do I cook for 1 minute 30 seconds, etc.? Thank you.


The owner's manual is here. On page 10 we find:

COOKING IN ONE STAGE
1. Press the POWER button; the Microwave and High
Cook indicators will light and “PL 10” will light in the
display.
2. Press the POWER button different times to set the
desired power; the display will show the percentage
you chose. If selecting power level 70%-10%, the
Low Cook indicator will light instead of the High
Cook indicator.
3. Press number keys to set the desired cooking time.
OPERATION(CONTINUED)
4. Press the START/+30SEC. button to start cooking;
the Microwave and one of the Cook indicators will
blink and the display will countdown the remaining
cooking time in minutes and seconds. It will beep
five times when cooking is completed.

I have a GE Adora Mircrowave only 3 months old. It does not start although all other functions seem to be working. When I hit sensor cooking and then start is says I cannot press pause during sensor...



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.

Otherwise, it sounds like you have a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

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.

JVM1190 wont cook


You have a blown actuator. This is the device that creates the microwaves that cook the food. The cost of one of these will be as much as a new unit.
