Question about GE JVM1660 Microwave Oven
I have a GE JVM1640BB which i purchase in 2001. Recently, i reheated my dinner and the time was up and i took my dinner out and went to shut the door, it started humming. Afraid it may blow, i unplugged it from the wall. What could be my problem.
Do the inside light, turntable and internal cooling fan ALL come on when the door is closed (without pressing any keys) , or just one or more of those?
Does it actually heat when you shut the door (without pressing any buttons)?
(You can put a cup of cold water in it for a minute to test it)
I would first suspect a shorted door switch.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
If it's not a door switch issue, I would say it has a stuck relay on the control circuit board.
