When you set the heat time and hit start button the light and fan come on for a second and then everything shuts off and 4 8's are displayed. You can initially set the clock but you have to reset it after it shuts down.
I have turned the power off for several minutes and powered back up but it still has the problem. I have checked the bottom door switch and it turns the light on and off. I can hear the top door switch click but I do not know if it is working when I shut the door.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. We use this microwave a great deal.

Re: Whirlpool RM988PYVW microwave oven
Wonder what that belt was? This model doesn't seem to use a blet of any kind.
This may be a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95.

Just checked the GE website. Had the same problem with my 5 year old microwave. GE website says to close and open the door quickly three times. First time I did this it didn't work. Second time I closed the door with some significant force and reopened it more quickly. Worked. Unplugged the microwave, plugged it back in, still fine.
I have model GE Microwave serial # JVM2070SK02. I start to cook something and it shuts off 5~10 seconds. Keyboard is still lit up, but no clock, fan, light and you cannot operate anything on the key pad. Unplug the unit and it resets. Sometimes it cooks, sometimes it doesn't? It is getting more frequent with the shutting down problem?

You have one or more defective door switches, or the door switch mount is loose or damaged.

My Whirlpool microwave, over the stove, stopped working when my son used it to heat his food and a heavy sound came out, like something exploded in it. When I check it, there was nothing broke. Everything works fine except that it does not heat. I will appreciate any help
