Question about GE JVM1440 Microwave Oven

Microwave Turns on automatically

Three to four times per day, my microwave oven comes on by itself. It is running in a programmed way; for example it says it is defrosting or cooking vegetables, etc. From the display screen you can see it is running these fixed programmed cycles (cooking vegetables; defrosting, etc.) This microwave was manufactured in Feb. 2006 but was only recently used. Any suggestions on how to delete the preprogrammed cooking cycles from the memory of this microwave will be appreciated. AJ

    Emerson mw8987B Turns itself on by itself , I came home from work to find my microwave running , I have no idea how long it had ran , but when I opened it , It was very hot, I have unpluged it from the wall. This is the second time this has happened, I thought I was going out of my mind, Fix it before you burn someones house down. Paul Willsher

    I'm having the exact same issue. I unplug overnight, but sure enough, the next day it will do the same thing. I'm pissed because I've only owned it less than 1.5 years.

Probably a defective keypad. Check with manufacturer; some brands have issued recalls for this problem as it is a fire hazard.

In the meantime, unplug oven or leave door ajar when not in use to prevent it starting on its own.

I would remove the plug from the mains for at least one hour. This should remove any memory

Taylor model c300 service manual


Hello. How old is your Taylor Model C300? If you have had this microwave oven four or more years. If it none functioning then recycle it for the metal and other materials. Now the price of copper is $3.25 per/lb, brass 1.85 per/lb, nickel has gone up. stainless steel. Almost everything in your microwave is recyclable. If you don't fell like take it apart and salvaging the material in it.
Call the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, recycling centers, etc.

If you need service manual search the Internet and used wild cards, such as***-----. example: ***Service Manual Taylor Microwave #C300*** or ***Service-Manual-Taylor-Microwave-C300*** Now, if you use to many -- between words this will make the search engine tighten it search to a point it can find anything. So, try it out, if nothing comes up take out a few dashes out

It almost cost prohibitive to repair microwave oven, TV, DVD, VCR, Cassette players, etc. I don't work on them anymore. By the time I get the parts and I have waited months for parts and my time plus parts it to expensive. GB...stewbison

Microwave turns on by itself


You have a shorting membrane keypad. If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So please leave it unplugged or leave the door open.

Microwave turns itself off after a couple of seconds


Q - My microwave seems to shut off every once in a while, what might be wrong?
A - Make sure you hear the fan is still operating in your microwave. Next is to make sure the air intake grill on your microwave is not plugged up with air borne dust and dirt.
Q - The fan in my microwave oven is not running will this hurt my microwave?
A - YES, the fan cools the magnetron and electronics, take the microwave in for service, most fans are not too expensive to replace.
Q - My microwave blows the fuse inside itself as soon as I push the start button.
A - Usually a shorted high voltage capacitor...see components section.
