Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The problem is either with the a loose broken connection inside the unit or with the door switch that is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have a Sharp Carousel model R-1874-T. It suddenly stopped working. No lights are on. I checked the outlet and there is power coming there. Is there a way to reset the microwave?


Steve,
You probably have a blown fuse.

Unplug your microwave and turn it around and remove the screws holding cover on and then remove the cover. Look for where the power cord goes into the back of the unit and follow the black wire from the cord to where it ends. It should stop an either a circuit board or a fuse holder. Make sure that you replace the fuse with the same amperage fuse as what you take out. You will find the amp rating stamped on one of the silver collars on each end of the fuse. Good luck!

GE oven is completely unresponsive but I have power to the plug that goes to the board. I see no obvious signs of damage, no burnt anything, not even a smell of burnt stuff.


Hi, Did you check the fuses on the stove. If it was built before and after model year 2000 there still should be fuses. If your stove is still under warrenty you may be able to get it fixxed for free. Good luck.

How do I remove cover on JEM31 microwave


Remove the screws on the back of the cover. There might also be some on the sides. The cover should slide backward and/or upward after the screws are removed.

Our 2006 Samsung Microwave has suddenly ceased to heat anything. The clock works and the turn table goes around, but that's it. We had a couple of power outages just before this happened. Could it be...


Hi,

Press the "Off/Clear' button to cancel anything on the display, and reset the microwave. This is a soft reset and will simply get you out of any program you have started. Press it when the cooking complete reminder appears on the display.
Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the GE microwave back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the microwave's memory. You will need to reset the time of day if you perform a hard reset.
Reset the time of day. Press the "Clock" button, and turn the dial to set the hours. Press the dial to enter. Follow the same procedure for the minutes and a.m. or p.m. Press the "Start" button to start the clock.

The light on my ge JEM31 microwave works intermittantly. How do I replace/tighten the bulb.


In there models, the cavity light is located in the magnetron cooling duct on the right side of the chassis.

You need to remove the outer cover to access it. See this file and this file for disassembly help.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Clock frequently goes blank and needs to be reset


You have a faulty display module due to one or more components leaking. Some models have a seperate display module that can replaced without the complete board having to be replaced. If not, the board needs to be replaced. You need to ask your spares suppliers that have info. on that model.

Error code F3H on model GH5184XP


F3H is a humidity sensor error.

You may be able to clear the error by unplugging the oven for a couple of minutes. Then plug it back in, reset the clock and try again.

If it still has the error after a reset, please write back so we can give you another suggestion.

It is most likely a door switch, or a magnetron with a loose connection or a failing magnetron. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) 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 your full model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 If you still need help, please write back letting us know what you checked and what you found.
