    When you say "shuts off" does it just stop like someone hit the Stop pad?

    Or does it shut down like you unplugged it then plugged it back in?

    Does the fan or inside light stay on when the rest of it shuts down?

    Or does everything shut down?

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.

When I shut the door on the microwave the turntable starts running even though it's not turned on and the light stays on


Maybe a failed triac that switches the motor and light.
Also try pulling it out from the wall for some time.

Ge pvm2070smss shuts down


It may be a noisy magnetron if the failure occurs in a second or two of hitting "Start" to begin cooking.

See this FixYa solution. even though your model number is different.

Otherwise, if the internal cooling fan is not running when you are cooking, it will shut down after 30-60 seconds or so and stay off until it cools back down.

Powers off immediately after starting


My immediate reaction would be to cut your losses and buy a new unit as sooner or later you will run into a part that is no longer available.

Carlton Microwave - C25MW09. Microwave unit stays on after timer has finished although light goes off and turntable stops rotating. Have to turn it on and off at the mains otherwise microwave unit would...


It is possible that the relay is staying latched to supply voltage to the magnetron even after the timer shuts down. This is dangerous and must be rectified.
You need to check the door switch and the lines from the program timer to switch the relay of the magnetron. It is possible that the timer is faulty and needs a check on the reason why it stays latched unless the power is cut. You can disconnect the magnetron to test but attempt ONLY if you are familiar with high voltage/ electrical circuits.

Just installed a new unit and when i pluged in something is running and the light stays on in the cooking area. will not shut off by the way it is not the fan running and it is not heating up


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

If you are sure that you have your electrical connections correct, that the exhaust fan is not running and this is a NEW unit you need to go to this link and first Register your microwave:
https://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/register
You have a product warranty claim and should not attempt any repairs. You will void your warranty if you do anything else.
After Registration making sure you state it is a warranty repair you should schedule warranty service here:
GE Warranty Management (1-800-626-2224
Monday - Friday: 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. ET
Saturday: 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. ET

My from the hip thoughts are that there is a control board, or relay problem in your microwave. It could be several things including a loose wire... but at this point your stuck in the warranty repair routine. Anything I would tell you to do today would void your warranty.

If you need more assistance just respond here and I will help you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Our Microwave keeps running and won't stop. It is


The fan you hear is probably the magnetron cooling fan and that, and the light, are probably both controlled by the electronics board that controls everything else. You might inquire online at Maytag or the Sears parts department to determine the cost of a replacement board but I suspect it will either not be available at all or cost 3/4 of a new microwave.

Panasonic Model No. NN-S933BF Microwave Oven


No sorry the issue will be with eiher the inverter, the magnetron or the main timer board. There is a tracer signal that comunicates through these components and if it doesnt get to where it is supposed to go it wil just shut off, the big hint at that is the time interval. It is not something like a sensor heating up and causing a fault. it is not running long enough to get any thing hot it is in the electroincs. Too expoensive to repair, im sorry better to get a new one. Good Luck
