Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
Unit continued reheating after "explosion", later when just using the timer, microwave went black. Later when opening door, unit came back on. Is it safe?
As long as the door latches correctly there should be no danger. Some items will cause loud "explosions" in a microwave, such as whole potatoes when the skin has not been pierced. If the food contains pickling spices for example, the seeds will explode with a very loud sound like a gun.
As long as the oven continues to heat, there may be no other problem. But I suggest you stay near the unit when using it. Watch for smoke and be alert for strange odors. You don't mention the age of your oven but if it is new you can call GE customer care at 800 432 2737.
