Microwave started talking for no reason & won't work

My microwave started talking - saying over & over "your food is ready". I have had it for 4 years & have never heard it say anything. The talking started by itself - microwave hadn't been touched or used for 10 hours. I unplugged it and it is still emitting a beep (but no words) every few seconds for the last 30 hours. When I plugged it in - it won't work - the dial had nosense messaging on it so I unplugged it again.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Try resetting it, here's how:

Instructions

1

Press the “Off/Clear’ button to cancel anything on the display, and reset the microwave. This is a soft reset and will simply get you out of any program you have started. Press it when the cooking complete reminder appears on the display, for example, and the “Your Food is Ready" message will disappear.

2

Press the “Off/Clear’ button for three seconds to turn the “Control Locked” child lock off.

3

Reset the cooking program if “Off/Clear” was pressed accidentally. For example, press the “Defrost” button again, and turn the dial to select the defrost time you want again. Press "Start."

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.
