Question about GE JE1640 Microwave Oven
We have the same problem as the other guy! When we open the door, the microwave comes ON! The GE repair center said maybe the mother board was malfunctioning. Looks like there would be some sort of safety device on the oven to keep this from happening!!!
The most likely problem is a defective door switch or door switch mount. I have handy information files on safety, disassembly and door switches that will help you or a friend check and repair this problem. If that's not it, then you may have a sticking relay or other problem on the control board. We repair these nationwide for $32.50 total in most cases. You can also find information on this service through the link above. The attachment may be close to yours. Let me know if I can help further!
