If the hood vent exhaust fan came on by itself, that was due to excessive heat on stove top, a failure of the hood TCO (thermal cutout / thermostat) or a problem on the control circuit board (smart board) which we regularly repair for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

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.

In this model, there are three TCOs which could be open, rendering the oven dead: The bottom TCO (not to be confused with the hood TCO, which should be normally open) the heater TCO and the magnetron TCO.

Also, the fuse should be checked in the unit.

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

After you look into this, if you still need help, please write back with more details.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help or see our Web site.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Sunbeam SMW5500 micro/convection oven shorted out when opening door


You are decribing a typical Door Safety Switch problem. The Door Safety Switches has Failed.The Door Safety Switch is designed to shut down the Micro in the event the Micro is still cooking when the door is being opened. The first "Click" of the switch cuts off the "Cook". If it does not cut off the "Cook", the second "Click" blows the power. Otherwise it would "Cook" with the door open, and I need not to tell you how DANGEROUS that could be. It first Tripped the Circuit Breaker which supplies power to the Microwave. After Re-Setting the Breaker the same thing happened except this time the Micro is DEAD- not even a light working. Yes, there is a line FUSE inside the Micro. You however need to address the Door Switch SHORT before replacing the fuse. If not, it will just Blow The Fuse Again, and Again, until the Short is corrected.
Call around, ask How much to replace a Door Safety Switch.
Good Luck!

GE JVM1190 microwave oven light comes on, but no the FAN or "microwaves"


If it were just just not cooking, I would suspect the magentron. But since the fan is also not working, I think you have a bad door switch. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, as well as other specific troubleshooting information and help. In my professional opinion, no one should work on a microwave unless they are fully informed and aware of the deadly hazards and necessary precautions. You can find safety and disassembly text files (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at http://www.microwavedisplay.com You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
