Question about GE JVM1630 Microwave Oven
IF I HEAT SOMETHING UP AND OPPEN UP THE DOOR PLATE AND MICROWAVE DOUSE NOT TURN OF AND STILL RUNNING
That would be either a shorted top door switch or possibly a shorted main relay on the control board.
Either is a pretty simple fix.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
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.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag here.
If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.
