Have you tried a simple reset by turning it off and disconnecting it, waiting several minutes, then turning it back on?

I have a basic Matrix microwave with a rotary timer. It still works fine, but about half the time the timer runs backwards, adding time instead of running down. How do I fix this?

That's a new one on me! Rotary timers are considered the Most reliable. Bought one in 1985. Put it in the barn ages ago, still working.
I think I would look the maker up, online, and ask them. Cleaning the timer dial Thoroughly, might work. With something like vinegar and baking soda. Or any kitchen cleaner. Even a can of air, to blow out dust and gunk. Good luck!

How can I clear pause off my GE microwave

On most GE microwaves the Timer function can be cleared by simply pressing the Clear button once or twice. On some models pressing and holding the Clear or Timer buttons will clear the function.

How do you stop, reset or change the remaining time on the Timer on the GE JES1142 microwave? Pressing Clear/Off does nothing. Do you just have to wait for the timer to run out? Manuel is wrong even on how...

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.

I have no manual how do I set the timer

most digital microwaves, the timer is the same, so you set the time you desire first, then push the "timer" button. When it finishes, hit "Clear/Stop" to cancel the alarm.
This should work, Please rate and comment, Thank You

Round soft key OXO Timer I need to change the clock time their model # is 1061978

Operating functions:
To set the clock, press and hold the clock/timer button for three seconds. A clock icon will appear on the left side of the screen. Input the time using the numerical buttons and then click the clock/timer button to save the time.
To set the timer, press and release the clock/timer button so that the display shows all zeroes. Enter the desired time using the keypad. Press start/stop to start the countdown. The countdown may be paused by pressing the stop/start button and resumed by pressing the same button again.
When countdown is complete, timer will beep continuously for thirty seconds and display will flash. Timer will then beep every ten seconds for ten minutes until the stop/start button is pressed.
This timer will also time up to time activities. To start count up, press clear/memory so timer reads all zeroes. Press stop/start and a plus sign will appear on the right side of the screen as the timer begins counting up.

Not sure what the question is.. But if it is how to start the clock in a COUNT DOWN mode, then:

2. Program in the length of time you want to use, before alarm comes on
3. Hit start button.

Unit will beep at the end the count down.

Hotpoint microvave won't start rvm125j

Have same problem tech tested some components and gave up (i think) and just called it a circuit board problem. I have a service plan so the whole microwave is being replaced as it is apparently cheaper for the warranty company.
