Question about GE Microwave Ovens
I have a GE XL1800 Spacemaker microwave that is not working. After setting the COOK time and pressing start, it will turn on for about 1 sec and then immediately goes off. The display comes back with PRESS CLOCK. After setting the clock and trying to use the microwave, the same thing happens. The light turns on and then goes off. The display shows PRESS CLOCK again.
Sounds like your losing power, have you tried it on a completely Different circuit??? Either that or bad fuse or connections inside of microwave.

There's a simple fix for this. Unplug the unit. Take off the top grill with 2 screws. Remove the 1 screw that holds the touch pad unit. Lift up on touchpad unit and lift out. Put a piece of aluminum foil inside a large zip lock bag and tape it to the back of the touchpad unit and reassemble. GE put the magnetron to close to the control board causing stray microwaves to interfere with the board. The foil shields it.
