not possible sorry

GE SpaceMaker... | Answered on Feb 10, 2016

I'd check to see if the turntable motor has continuity. If it does, check to see if 120 volts is being supplied to it. If both are o.k., then the motor has probably bound-up in some way internally. There's also the possibility that it has mechanically become detached from the hub that turns the glass tray.

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

There was a component failure in the magnetron circuit. The magnetron is the device which produces the microwaves that heat the food. There are extremely high (and dangerous) voltages associated with this part of your oven. As a result, components often fail and make noise because these components can burst rather violently. You should take it to a competent service tech. The components associated with the magnetron can often be replaced when they fail and it is not always expensive to have repaired.

You're going to have to replace the keypad module and possible the control module (do the keypad first). You can try contacting these folks:
And see if they have a keypad for your unit. Depending on the age of your microwave, you may be best off replacing the whole microwave.

I would say replace it . but a repair shop will give you an estimate then you can decide if it is worth the cost of repairs .

GE Profile... | Answered on Dec 10, 2015

Well the only way to fix it, replace the keypad control board, but consider the cost in parts, it will rival some new microwave ovens.

Good afternoon Penny.

The manual for this microwave can be obtained/viewed here ( and have tips for all those other things like changing the scroll speed of the display )

If you go to to Page 24, the time set is a fairly common one:
  1. Press [Clock]
  2. Enter Time of Day with numeric keypad
  3. Press the [AM/PM/Scroll Speed] Button under the Zero key.
  4. Push [Clock] or [Start] to finish and set the time.
Cheers - hope this helps.

two screws in the floor of the cabinet/space above it ?

probably a magnatron failure
take it to an appliance repair shop for a proper diagnosis and get a quote as repairs can be more expensive than new unit

GE SpaceMaker... | Answered on Nov 24, 2015

The part of the oven called the "magnetron" (this part is what creates/generates the microwave energy that heats the food or liquid) is burned out, the cost to repair is more this part is more than the cost to replace with the cost of Microwaves so depressed by the stagnant economy.

The error code F3 indicates an oven sensor problem. The oven sensor is most likely the failed part. The oven sensor probe must have the correct resistance readings at specific temperatures. When the electronic range control (ERC) cannot identify the correct resistance of the oven sensor or the resistance is way out of specs F3 will display.
I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your oven.

microwave is in lock mode. How do you unlock to use?

GE Spacemaker... | Answered on Nov 18, 2015

If you pull the covers, you will see a digram showing locations of overheat safety sensors. Check with a meter. If all good. You have other issues.
