If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's probably a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

My ge profile microwave model pvm1870sm133 is not working properly. when you open the door the cooling fan turns on


Unplug and cease using this as you are exposing yourself to electro magnetic radiation. The door switch may have failed, you will need to disassemble the front panel to access the switch which is located within one of the holes that he door's hooks insert into and depresses to inform the control board the door is closed and is safe to operate.

I have a GE JVM2070SH001 micowave . I do not have power to the under unit lights (work,nitelight) but everything else works fine. What is the likely problem?


Either the control board or the switch itself. I can't remember if that on is part of the main keypad or not. Does the unit beep when you press the light button? If it does then you need to follow the wiring to a point where you have power. Best guess...control board

I have a GE Profile Spacemaker Microwave Touch Pad does not work


Sadly, GE does not make individual parts available for these controllers, so they cannot be repaired.

You have to replace the control panel sub-assembly (part number WB07X10733 in your case) and the best price I've found on that is $370.32 here (compared to $483.25 direct from GE).

In my opinion, this does not do much to inspire brand loyalty...

Or you may be able to find a whole oven on eBay for about that or less.

Sorry to bear bad news. Good luck.
