Screen readout malfunctioned and minutes later everything was dead.

Shortly after using my GE microwave/ convection oven the display screen showed all squares and at the bottom of the screen it said to push any button to continue. When I tried to press one of the buttons nothing would happen. Then I tried unplugging the microwave for a few minutes and when I plugged it in again the display showed the same squares. Ten minutes later I checked the display again and it was totally blank and nothing on the microwave worked. I'm pretty handy, is there any chance I can fix this myself?

The consensus around here is that you should take out very large amounts of life insurance before working on one of these. Make very sure your premiums have been duly certified and alert your attorney as to same. Kiss all your loved ones goodbye and make sure your will is in order. You are now ready to work on your broken microwave ;-) Any other questions?

What are you Mayer, a microwave repairman? The consensus around where, your repair shop? What do you think, people can't fix their own appliances? I've fixed everything from televisions to washing machines, and everything in between. You're not funny if that's what you were aiming for. You just sound like a bitter old man. I was always taught that if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all.

No thanks for your comment.


OK, take a look at the solutions tab under the Microwave icon to see what other here have to say.


Main Control Board

If the microwave display is not working the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

Enter your model number to see parts for your microwave.

Display Board

If the display has gone out the display board might be defective. If the display goes out completely the problem can be either the display board or the main control board. If the display goes out partially the problem is usually the display board.
