calvin, If you have access to where your microwave is plugged in, unplug it for a few minutes and then plug it back in. This will reset your contol panel. Then follow your book directions to reset the time on the clock. Hope this helps!
TO MAKE YOUR MICROWAVE WORK AS REQUIRED BY YOU.TAKE THE RESET STEP
4 Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the GE microwave back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the microwave's memory. You will need to reset the time of day if you perform a hard reset.
5 Reset the time of day. Press the "Clock" button, and turn the dial to set the hours. Press the dial to enter. Follow the same procedure for the minutes and a.m. or p.m. Press the "Start" button to start the clock.
Our oven clock does the same thing every time the power blips, but we live way out in the boonies and expect occasional problems. Do your lights blink too? Check with your neighbors to see if they have power problems. If this is a chronic situation, contact your power company to see if they can repair the situation.
If you mean by "races" that the coooking time goes way too fast, then
you may just need to reset the microwave. This is usually done by unplugging the microwave for several minutes then plugging it back in.

If that doesn't fix it, chances are that the integrated circuit (chip) is corrupted. Whirlpool doesn't make the chips available, so the whole control board (they may call it the "clock") would need to be replaced.
If the time count sems correct, it's also possible that a sensor is bad, or maybe yopu have a bad door switch.
You can do a Yahoo search for my file "doorsw.txt" to help you with the safety tips and disgnosis of door switch problems.
