My high power GE Advantium microwave is sparking

Your problem is a common one. When you see arcing inside your microwave, it's because of food or liquid left in the cavity or on the wave-guide cover:

  • If the wave guide has any burn spots, replace it and clean the unit well.

  • If the cavity has any burn spots, spot-sand it smooth and touch it up with microwave interior paint.
Note… If there are any burn holes in the cavity, don't use the unit-seek help from a qualified appliance repair technician.

Moisture between glasses on door.

Since microwaves act directly on moisture, this should tell you that it isn't causing any leakage from the cavity/cabinet of the unit. If microwaves were passing through the moisture, it would eventually dry out completely I don't believe there is any reason for concern.
Even bad gaskets (seals) around the edge of the door do not cause leakage. Only a mechanically bent door could cause this and it would still be very minor.
The cooking enclosure itself is what is called a 'tuned cavity' and as such, contains the bulk of the energy internally.

One surface light bulb on GE Profile microwave keeps burning out

I have the same problem. The left one burns out within a couple of hours use, the other one lasts a couple of months and is then gone. This pattern has repeated over 8 years. I replace them every now and then and then just go without until I get the urge again to fix it. Maybe smaller lower wattage lamps are worth trying...

Changing the power level

I had the same problem. All you need to do is put in your cook time first, then adjust the power level. So time cook, whatever # of minutes, power level, then # power level. Hope this helps.

Ge microwave

To mrotu47182 and MaryGur - you may very well have different problems!

TO mrotu47182:

Chances are the magnetron overheated, blowing the "magnetron thermal cutout".

To MaryGur:

Your problem may be a bad keypad, but the first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If that doesn't fix it, you may have a bad keypad, assuming that your unit's display is on, but it won't respond to any key presses.

Is this your symptom?

We have a GE microwave

Might be the power controller but equally might be the eht diode, transformer or capacitor or the magnetron itself. If you have the experience you can test for mains output from the power controller to the transformer but checking the eht circuit is best left to the experts as getting it wrong can be fatal. You will find plenty of information about this on youtube and other question/answer sites. Try an internet search...

F3 error code ge microwave

No, unfortunately the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part on this model.

You would have to order the control panel frame, which comes with a new keypad already installed.

The part number is WB07X10883 and you can get it for $86.82 here.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

How do I check the magnetron or the capacitor?

There are three microswitches When checking a microwave oven that seems to operate properly yet does not heat first check for 110VAC at the primary of the large transformer.

Condensation in door glass of GE XL1800 microwave

Your ventilation seals may be aging, but they have nothing to do with microwave energy leakage, (And microwave energy is not ionizing radiation anyway, so it does not cause cellular mutation or cancer) You should check your grease filters (if you are venting to the outside) or your charcoal filter (if recirculating). If you are venting outside, check your outside vent flap for proper operation, and check your outlet and ductwork for a bird's nest or mouse nest, etc. If you have other questions, feel free to contact me directly, because FixYa doesn't always notify us when there are follow-ups. - William E.

Hi! Our GE Spacemaker microwave (JVM241BL) stopped

Turn off the power before starting this process. If the oven is dead, the fuse is probably blown. Remove the two screws that hold the touch pad and control board in place to access the fuse. Once inside, look towards the back and follow the power cord that enters the rear of the microwave to the fuse. It should be a 15 amp ceramic fuse.

Microwave no power

Hello :

It could be a problem with the power transformer or the power PCB . Or it could be just a fuse . You need to check first . If it's the fuse , then that will be easy to solve , you need only to replace it with new one . But if the problem is with the transformer or with the PCB , you need to take your microwave to the service for repairing .

CAUTION: A microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly recommend you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .

good luck .

Previous homeowner turned off GE

I was not aware you could turn off the display, maybe it is just a bad display and you need to replace the board??!! Ive been repairing Microwaves for 37 years. i do not remember seeing one where you could just turn off the display.

Power failure on ge wes1130

Power being interuppted could be anything from a bad fuse , bad fuse holder, bad solder connections on the main board. Bad breaker in your panel. Start by plugging it into an outlet you know is on a different breaker than the on it is on now. See if it does the same thing. If it works ok, then problem with power to the other outlet. If it does the same thing problem inside of unit. PF is Power Failure, now we have to figure out why.
