Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I have a GE Spacemaker XL Microwave Oven (over the stove type) Model #JVM1440WH04 purchased 12/06.
Recently it has started to come on all by itself and will not shut off unless the plug is pulled. It came on the first time when a friend walked by it. Again it came on while we were in the other room watching TV. Last week it came on during the night and thankfully we woke up to unplug it. We now throw the switch off at the circuit breaker panel before we go to bed or if we are leaving the house.
I didn't see this model on any recall list.

Inside unit is a cylinder fuse which can blow for a number of reasons. External cover needs to be removed to access. If you are confident in doing this and can find & check the fuse then it would be my first guess. If fuse is OK then you will need to have repaired. If fuse isblown & you replace then it blows again,you will need to have repaired. regards

in the microwave there is a part which produses the heat which will be called as magnetron you check that part.

Sounds like the magnetron has failed. There are some high voltage circuits that feed the magnetron and you can potentially get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. Would recommend you have it serviced by a professional if you want it fixed, otherwise look for a new one since the cost of repair can come close to the price of a new microwave oven.
