Microwave door has burnt patch: is it safe to operate?

From your other post:

The paint should be available at big box stores like Wal-Mart, home improvement centers like Builder's Square, Lowe's, or Home Depot, or hardware stores or local appliance parts stores.

You can order the plastic sheet (called the "door film") here. It is part # WB06X10490.

Be sure the mesh is clean and dry before installing the new film.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Microwave shuts off after a few seconds

Nov 22, 2007. I also had the 3 second shut off problem with my G/E 1650 MWO. Read all the above and tried them all. Finally I just took a 8" x 8" piece of Reynolds Wrap Aluminum foil and but it in an zip lock bag and placed it behind the control panel. It's been working for 2 weeks now. Just take out the 2 screws that hold the vent across the front right above the door. Next on the right side is one screw, take it out and then gently lift the control panel (panel with the buttons) about 1/2" and it will fold out and stay there. put the zip lock bag inside. Close it back up. I'd test it before replacing all the screws. You don't need to un-plug anything. Just don't stick your fingers on all the exposed parts...Mine works great now and didn't cost $0.10.

Itook my ground off of my microwaveand it just blinks

Some control panels will malfunction if the unit is not grounded.

Additionally, one side of the high voltage supply to the magnetron is usually tied to the cabinet. So, if not grounded, you have a "floating" 4000 volts. It's possible this could be a dangerous situation if something else failed, such as the transformer.

Vent fan filter??cleaning,etc does not seem to pull air out as it runs

If this is a new installation, or if this ove is new to you, the following may apply: on some ovens the vent fan can be flipped to either exhaust air out of the house, or re-circulate it. Could it be in the wrong position? You would have to take the oven down to determine this. If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/david_29ad5d1dd86564b0

Microwave interferes with TV

Take one fluorescent light-bulb -- not connected to anything -- and a darkened room. Start the microwave, and see if any emissions from it activate any of the fluorescent materials inside the light-bulb.

There is power to unit, but food will not heat-up

In my case, it was a high voltage fuse that had burned. The reason for that is most likely a shorted diode ($3 ebay) or shorted capacitor ($12 ebay). They are easy to locate and cheap to replace. You will need to remove the cover and use a multimeter to find the faulty part.

Stops after 4 mins

Can you hear the "whirl" of the fan? It is possible the fan is not turning & cooling the oven therefore it will shut down when it reaches a certain temperature. This could be caused by a supply fault to the fan or the fan motor, either way it would need to be tested by a qulified engineer.

Where is the fuse located in a GE spacemaker xl microwave oven

Unplug microwave, remove top, follow wiring from the keypad area to the circuit board, look for a silver rectangular high voltage capacitor, discharge across the two points, and near by look for a small fuse clipped in, pop it out and replace with same current rating. If fuse blows! one or two door switches are probably bad and will need to be replaced.
