Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
The microwave just turns on by itself anytime it want to.
You have a shorting
If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.
So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.
If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.
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 would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.
But please note that for some GE models, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame which comes with a new keypad.
In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame.
Feel free to contact us with your full model number and we can tell you if yours is one of these models, and if so, we'll also give you the part number you need to order and a link to the best priced supplier.
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.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
