Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave runs with door open

I opened the company microwave and put a cup of coffee in it, closed the door and realized it had come on and had been running when I put the cup in. What symptoms should I be looking for from the exposure? Is this serious? The door was only open five seconds. I realize this is a fix-it site, but you guys are likely to know more about this than anyone, and it is a problem I need advice on fixing.

Why microwave won't stop running unless door is open ?


Is it actually heating or just making noise and acting like it's heating? (put a cup of water inside and close the door.) IF it's actually heating, then you have a shorted relay on the main control board, and you will have to replace the board. IF it's just making noise like it's working, but it's not heating, then the problem is 1 of the door switches is not working right (it's either stuck open or stuck closed).

My microwave is cooking without me wanting it to


The fact that pressing CANCEL did nothing leads me to believe the controller may have failed but a failed door interlock could be a contributing factor.

If the carousel inside your microwave won't turn when you run it, the small motor that operates it may be broken.

Door won't engage and stay closed


Possible that the lock was broken and so the door opened. You can remove the front panel and check for broken plastic or nylon pieces which can be glued using instant adhesive.
Reset the lock and switch and the door must lock in correctly

Frigidaire microwave plmv168cc1 makes humming noise when door closed


Chances are that the secondary (cook) relay on the control circuit board is shorted, meaning that the oven is actually cooking any time the door is closed.

You can test that by putting in a cup of water, shutting the door, and letting it go for about 30 seconds, then checking the water temperature.

This is dangerous, and can lead to a fire, so please unplug the oven until it is repaired.

The relay can be replaced for far less than the cost of a new control circuit board.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Samsung microwave -the electrical panel runs, the


it sounds like it one of your micro-switches inside that control the power to the doors, if one of the switches is bad, it would cut the power , the panenl will light, the turn table will work, the fan will turn on , but you will not get any heat at all, micro-switches run depending onthe unit from 5-10 bucks, when you open the unit you will see the one that is bad, is usually bent or the connector might be burn or melt, good luck..!

MIcrowave runs with the door open also


your door switch is mis-adjusted,furthermore the other safety switch on the door should have blown the power fuse in the unit,because by design for safety it produces a short circuit if door opens under operation,so if door was taken off and replaced it was not adjusted properly

Microwave oven only operates if the door is held closed


If the microwave oven operates with the door open it is a serious issue. DO NOT OPERATE IT. Call a technician immediately. The RF frequency is extremely dangerous. the safety switches inside the oven are malfunctioning and needs to be replaced
