Question: Can the Tastiwave oven be used?


I don't own one but per the TastiWave Quick Start Guide (which can be downloaded as a PDF document), The wattage must not exceed 1300 Watts. In the Instruction manual and quick cook recipe guide (also a downloadable PDF document) it states that:
"The recipes in this booklet have been written for an 1100 Watt microwave oven. Please adjust your “cook times” accordingly. Microwave must have a revolving turntable and the interior
must measure at least 14” wide x 14” deep x 7 3/4” high".
I hope this answers your question ;-)

My microwave cooktop lights keep burning out. why? i've changed the 10 watt low volt bulbs 4 times in the last 6 mos. each time being careful not to touch the bulbs with my fingers. they will work for...


Are you keeping them on all the time?

Or is the the microwave subject to excessive vibration or door slamming while the lights are on?

Both these conditions are factors in premature bulb failure.

I would also avoid cheap Chinese bulbs from grocery stores and get the GE-specified bulbs either from here online or a local home center such as Lowe's or Home Depot. etc.

Motor 'Dragging'


The motor run's the same speed regardless of power setting.

If 1000 wats is too much for your poor old electric service, then you better not use your A/C.

As for checking voltage, you need to measure the voltage at the plug with the microwave operating.

Power level


The numbers DO NOT equal a certain power level Erin. They equal a percentage! This is very confusing. Even the factory reps. can't explain it adequately. I recently replaced my old 600 watt oven with a GE 1100 watt model. The 600 watt unit came with a great cookbook. (I searched the internet but couldn't find one for the GE oven and the factory was no help!) A chicken recipe in the 600 cookbook said cook on high for 30 minutes. Since 600 is approx. half of 1100, I cooked on high for 15 minutes. Result: Uncooked chicken...

The next time I cooked 30 minutes on 50% power (button 5) and It came out OK. I have since used 50% power with meats in cooking bags with good results. Remember to check for correct temp. with a meat thermometer when oven stops. Trial and error is your best test at this point I'm afraid. Also you may want to type "Microwave Conversion Chart" into your browser. You will get some additional information from this. But read carefully!

Cant figure out how to stop the timer before it goes out, or runs out of time


You should be able to hit the Stop pad, but you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If some of the pads on the keypad are not working, you may have a failed keypad, which can be replaced.

If so, please reply back with your model number and let us know.

Power cord


If you are referring to the main power cord then you should be able to purchase one at Home Depot/Lowes of most local hardware stores... make sure you get the current rating off the tag on the appliance.. 15Amp or less can use a cord size of 14 gauge.. you should use a 12 gauge for any appliance requiring up to 20Amps ( in your case ..1100 watts minus losses within the system should allow you to use 14 gauge power cord.)

Is the 1.1 cu ft 1100 Watt model: jes 1139bl sold by Home Depot the same as the 1.1 cu ft 1100 watt model sold by Lowes ? If so, what is the model number of the lowes unit ?


A quick check of the Lowe's Web site show the following GE 1.1 cubic foot microwave models:

JES1142SJ
JES1139WL
JES1139BL
JE1160WD
JE1160BD

If you still have any doubt, I'd call Lowes.
