Question about GE JVM1460SA Microwave Oven
Intermittently, but increasingly repeatably, the microwave self-starts when you close the door. No button pushes involved, nothing more than having taken out the already heated food from a previous correctly working cycle. Yes, removing the previously heated food and replacing it with a cold cup of water demonstrates that the magenetron is DEFINITELY working: the water heats during this self-start cycle. Dang ... simply closing the door starts the heating cycle. No sequence of button pushes ... including "CLEAR" ... will stop the cycle. Only opening the door stops it. Then, randomly, it stops after an arbitrary number of door openings/closings. No, there have been no other appliances (including computers, new HD TV, cordless phones, etc.) exhibiting weird symptoms, suggesting that a voltage surge is NOT the problem. Any sugestions?
If electronic control, one of two things come to mind. 1)your toutch pad is defective.replace it. 2)you electronic board has a leaky component.not very likly though. believe it or not, ive seen it start before by itself then i noticed a large quantity of bugs inside the glass which i realised triggered the microwave 0ff.

Sounds like an intermittent door switch or a loose door switch mount. Very common.
