Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
The original problem was probably a bad turntable motor, which is pretty easy to replace.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
Now I'd say you have a bad door switch (whether upper or lower depends on the model number) or a problem with the door switch mount.
This is a pretty simple problem to fix, too: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
