ahab:
I have a code that pops up on display as F-1, This only happens when in combo or convection mode.
Will not heat up at all. Microwave works fine.  
Does anyone know what board  I have to change to fix this problem.

Is that just for a GE or will that work for an LG(Kenmore).

Its the only one I had and I was unable to nail down who made your machine. I know nothing about these new fangled mexitronics  :rofl:
I do know that microwave ovens are made exclusively in one region of the world. Taiwan and I assume all these damn thangs are using basically the same control unit. I was in walmart and looking at various microwaves and noting the patterns of the controls. Every damn one of them basically have the same pattern. That don't mean a damn thing in this instance though.

ahab, I don't work on LG but maybe technician Brian or one of the others will read this and be able to help.
