One of the door switches may be sticking due to grease or carbon buildup. Or you may have a loose door switch mount. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

My GE Microwave Convection Oven model JE 1390WV runs whenever the door is open. It microwaves on the normal settings, but when the door is opened it turns on and runs.


DO NOT USE IT!!!! THERE IS A SWITCH IN THE DOOR LATCH THAT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED.
AGAIN DO NOT USE IT!!!! IF ITS RUNNING WITH THE DOOR OPEN YOU COULD DO SERIOUS DAMAGE TO YOUR HAND OR ARM IF IT IS NEAR THE OPEN DOOR

Troubleshooting Ge Microwave that is acting bizarrely


Sounds like the main control board, but further testing should be done to rule out other possible causes. One thing I would do is to check to make sure it is plugged into a grounded outlet that is actually grounded. Bizarre behavior can be caused on some ovens because of a lack of a ground connection.

Occasionally, and more frequently now, micro starts to run when the door is opened and stops when the door is closed. it will still operate normally but when you go to take food out, it starts running...


Door switches

If one of the door interlock switches is not switching properly or there is a condensation problem on the sensor control panel, either can cause the turntable/light/oven to come on even though the "Starts" button has not been depressed due to the wiring of the switches.
Check for faulty door switches and/or contaminated actuators.
I hope that helps.

Ge profile microwave oven runs when door is open


Good way to cook yourself! It has to be a stuck door interlock switch--the case needs to be removed to get at the switch. It could be either the mechanism that operates the switch or the switch itself is bad. The switch normally makes a click when the button is pressed. Unplug the unit when the case is removed.
