Question about GE Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Model WES1450DM1BB brought it home from the store tested it by heating one cup of water. Tested OK. Later tried to warm up a cup of coffee...nothing. Touch pad would not respond. Unplug and replug -- screen at first totally dark... later after trying again -- all segments of display light -- but no action. Outlet 3 prong voltage = properly grounded - volts showing 120. Anything to try except to take it back to Wal-Mart?

Beyond a reset like you did, there's nothing else you should have to do.

I wouldn't take a chance on getting a lemon.

I'd return it.

LG microwave intermittently runs


I would try troubleshooting the "defrost circuit". The behavior sounds like the microwave is cooking in the defrost mode, where it actively cooks then stops allowing the food to rotate and the heat to spread then actively cooking again.

Gh9115xe went off completely sometime after a cup of coffee was reheated. Now, nothing works. The outlet is live.


probably not
there is a glass fuse under the outer case near the circuit board
if that is blown it is from a short so you may have to take it in for a diagnosis

I warmed up a cup of coffee in our microwave then


This usually means that the magnetron circuit has failed. The magnetron is the part that generates the microwaves to heat the food. Typically the problem is the magnetron itself that has died. The cost of replacement comes close if not more than a new microwave oven. Unless the oven is still under warranty, it not worth fixing.

Owners of a GE WES model might want to look at this blog post.

I'm sure the magnetron overheated and tripped the magnetron's thermal cutout.

I'd strongly suggest taking it back if you can.

GE Microwave, inexpensive model, I place a cup of coffee to warm on the turntable, enter a time, it ends and beeps, I open the door, the coffee cup handle is positioned away. I've gone through many...


Hello BillJohn! I've found that, after many countless hours of precise trial and error testing, that the optimum placement of the cup and a predetermined time entered on the keypad will yield the desired results you're seeking.

By placing the cup on the outer edge of the turntable, with the handle facing to the right side, when looking straight at the cup of water, you would then close the door until it latches and enter in a time of 2:38 onto the timer, (that's 2 minutes and 38 seconds) with a termperature setting of either low or medium, (not the default high).

This will provide you with a warmed up cup of joe, with the handle facing in such a manner that you should be able to grasp it in either your left or right paw without much trouble. However, this will only work approximately 82.5% of the time, the rest of the 17.5% the cup will end up at the 3 or 4 o'clock position (when the handle will be facing the back of the micro).

Otherwise, you'll be destined to have to grasp the cup with your hand and manually rotate it until the handle can be grabbed easily for extraction from the microwave. Of course, it goes without saying that that cup could be quite warm after the timer beeps and signals that the heating/cooking process has been completed.

Please remember that this highly sofisticated kitchen appliance was once only available to the ultra rich, back when the first Amana Radarranges were available for sale. These microwaves once had the unbelievable pricing at around $1200, all so some ultra rich person could reheat their leftover quails eggs and caviar, (along with that peruvian cop of coffee that their butler let go cold).

So be thankful that modern manufacturing technics have been able to harness the atom vibrations that allow for rapid heating and cooking for under $100 these days! Why just today, Home Depot was offering a dal for a small microwave for $19.00 on their Black Friday deals! I would have purchased it, but after seeing your issues with these new fangled devices, I decided that having to rotate my cup after reheating it, was just too much to do, even for the odd 17.5% of the time it happens!

Enjoy that warm cup of Joe and please keep an ongoing log of your actual results of how many times the cup and handle end up in the unaccessible position of 3 and 4 o'clock for the next 30 days.

I'm seeking more real-world data before I publish my statistics on this unusual cup/handle ending position phenomena.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Microwave doesn't heat up


There are three solutions (source) =>

http://www.partselect.com/repair.aspx?appliance=microwave&part=no-heat

Power Diode

A diode is an electronic component that readily passes current in one direction only and blocks the flow of current in the opposing direction. If your microwave's diode has become defective, your microwave will not heat and you will hear a buzzing noise. Test the diode to determine if this is the cause of your problem. Replace it if it is defective.

High Voltage Capacitor

A capacitor is an electrical device which stores electricity. A defective capacitor may be why your microwave is not heating but you are hearing a buzzing or humming noise. The capacitor will have to be tested to determine if this is the cause of your problem. A defective capacitor will have to be replaced before your microwave will work again. Make sure you discharge the capacitor before you test it, though.

Magnetron





A defective magnetron is the third possible cause of why your microwave is not heating, but you can hear a buzzing noise. Test your microwave's magnetron. Replace it if it is defective.

CUP HANDLES GET TO HOT WHEN I WARM COFFEE.


It is your cup. The handle density or moisture content of the handle is causing the mwave to heat it. The rest of the cup contains a liquid (coffee?) that is absorbing any heat generated in the body of the cup. Use a different cup!
