SOURCE: fan runs when unit is off

The control relay has gone bad, to replace this if you can find the board runs about $195.00, I hate to say do not repair something but in this case, I would have to say it is time to retire this one.

Why Auto fan seems to go on prematurely


Hi,

The vent fan comes on if your steaming or creating heat unit it to protect the control unit. So I assume this was happening when the fan came on? I hope this answers your question. When this happens the unit will turn off when it cools down all by itself.

GE Spacemaker XL1800 vent fan doesn't pull air from beneath


On the exhaust system (top of unit) there is a small metal 'damper' that is most likely stuck shut. If that is all clear then you have a problem in the duct work of the home.

As plugged in microwave starts up doesn't stop even if you press clear and it also sparks where can i go to exchange it or have it replaced?


Sounds like someone tried heating something up with metal attached or possibly left a utensil, Chinese food with the metal handles or foil in the unit - throw it out and but a new unit - it's not worth it parts plus labor and it will never work right again the power scale will be off

Its runs but no heat.


It is usually the magnetron tube that fails which then blows an inner-cabinet fuse. The world seems full of bad Asian made magnetrons that fail prematurely due to air infiltrated internal vacuums from leaking metal to glass seals. It will probably cost more in parts and labor to repair than a new unit. A well made magnetron should gradually lose output power over time (years), not just quit. Hope this helps!

Microwave sparked out now it does not work


You had something metal inside the microwave. Do you have a rack inside on a revolving tray? On my microwave, if the foot of the wire rack is not on the revolving tray, it will spark against the floor of the oven. Microwave will go around round pieces of metal - it will spark if it finds a flat surface. I dont think you did any damage to your machine but try to not do this again.

I hope this helps you.

Exhaust fan doesn't work and blows air from top vent


Some microwaves have a adjustable fan. We have one that you can vent out the back, the back top or through the front top filters. The latter is what it sounds like you have. If you take the small back panel off and lift out the fan motor you'll see that you can place it in the direction you like.\\

Humming and sparking inside the microwave


Sounds like you have metal inside oven, and arching can happen if nothing is in there to absorb energy.

Intermittant heating


You probably have a new unit by now. The Magnetron part inside usually is the problem with this Maytag unit.I have had this unit blow the 'Magnetron' four times ! Everything else works fine. After watching the technician, I replaced it myself the other 3 times. The whole unit has to come out of the wall to do this. This High Voltage part is dangerous. The part costs about $100.00 from an online parts store. Partselect.com- or someone else.

Sparking / Popping Microwave


GE had a rash of "underperforming" magnetrons on these units. They replace the magnetron, stirrer and high-voltage diode at no charge for parts as long as a GE-authorized service center does the work. Sometimes the unit gets run too long in a failing state and the waveguide and chassis of the oven get damaged. To see if yours is covered, see this bulletin: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf Otherwise, you need to contact GE Customer Relations at 1-800-386-1215 as soon as possible and tell them your problem and they will put you in touhc with a local authorized servicer.
