Question about GE JVM1630 Microwave Oven
Suddenly, when the door is shut, a fan runs. It is a seperate fan from the exhaust. The microwave still works & heats. We must leave the door open.
This is an interlock issue or a faulty temperature sensor. Both will require the outer casing to be removed for inspection. Basic tests can be done with a continuity tester or cheap digital multimeter with resistance checking facilty (Radioshack)
The sensors for these types of fans are normally attached to the roof of the cooking cavity, little silver components with two or more wires.
Check these out with a meter if any are open circuit then they need to be replaced.
