Question about GE JVM2070 Microwave Oven
Microwave starts and shuts off. after 4-6 attempts it stays running
My unit does the same thing - it will often simply power down or power down and display garbage on the control panel within a second or two of starting operation. I have found in my case this seems related to slight obstruction preventing the exhaust hood from pivoting to the open position at the top of the unit. Mechanical misalignment of the pivoting fan panel seems to cause a motor overdraw, or something similar, which shuts down the unit. I've found that I can usually slide the pivoting fan panel a mm or so to the right or left, usually right (oddly), and then the panel will swivel unimpeded and the microwave will work. As my unit has cabinets above it, I believe that over time there has been sufficient physical contact/impact with the pivoting exhaust panel to slightly deform it, affecting its ability to freely rotate down from the vertical.
