Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
Anytime I try to cook something for more than a few minutes (say, making rice in the microwave or defrosting something), the microwave just shuts off mid-heating, then comes on again some 20 minutes later. When the door is opened it is often very steamy inside, indicating to me that some overheating sensor has been tripped. This model has the built in fan, and the door does open during heating and the fan sounds like it may be running, it just simply isn't cooling the microwave or removing the excessive steam. I did not install this microwave myself, so I'm hoping to get some advice on where to start looking for the solution before I start tearing apart my new kitchen! Thanks, Matt
First of all your mwave needs to be properly ventilated .the problem is your magnetron when heated the thermal cutof switch cutts out power to magnetron.works again when cool.change magnetron
