Customer Question
My new GE Sensor Microwave...
My new GE Sensor Microwave was just installed today. I set the timer and then try to have it go on for 30 seconds. It makes a noise, then the interior cooking light goes and the countdown timer starts. No movement of the turntable and no sound of cooking. Nothing happening. I did unlock the control first.

Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Kill power at the breaker for 5 minutes restore power and if the issue continues you will need to call and have the unit serviced under warranty as that is going to be a component issue and not a problem with the settings or the control lock, and you can't work on the unit yourself without voiding the warranty so if the breaker reset does not fix the problem then call for service under warranty.
