Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. 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

SOURCE: Same problem that was asked recently. I didn't

I have to ask. Have you tried to see if the magnetron was also running at the same time as the fan and turn table? The reason I ask is.... "usually"... all three are energized at the same time. Try a cup of water inside to see if it heats up when time has run out in addition to the fan running and the turntable turning.

These functions are controlled by the relay PCB
Item number 1653 of the link below.
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5225881&diagram_id=24680726#d24680726

I am not saying the relay PCB is bad... but something is telling the relay PCB to remain energized via the Smart board Item 1655 of the link below:

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5225881&diagram_id=24680724#d24680724


Either one can cause the problem and I am not going to sit here form the computer and tell you to go buy either one. They will have to be isolated and tested with a meter.

If you were to change the replacement parts listed above the total (parts only) cost is over $200.00.

There isn't alot you can do without a service manual in hand to troubleshoot this one. Maybe a few... taps on the relay PCB.... after that.. it is test probes and meter time.

SOURCE: GE Profile Space,aker 1800 microwave is making

You should keep it unplugged until it's fixed. If it's cooking while it should be off, that can damage the oven or even start a fire.

It's either a failed door switch or door switch mount, or a bad electrolytic capacitor on the control board, which we can repair for $39.95.

If you're hearing a fan or motor running, I'd suspect the switch. See this file for help.

If it's a buzz (like a power line buzz) then I'd suspect the board capacitor.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit) for more help.

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

SOURCE: My ge microwave just runs. It will not stop

First you should determine whether it's cooking when it should not be, in this case anytime it is plugged in and the door is closed or open.

Do that by putting a cup of water in a microwave-safe container into the unplugged microwave, shutting the door, then plugging it for about a minute.

Then unplug the oven and check to see if the water is warmer.

If so, you have a shorted secondary relay on your microwave''s control circuit board, and we regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 with a one-year guarantee.

Do that test again by putting the water in, leaving the door open, and plugging the oven in for about 30 seconds or so. If you get any arcing or buzzing or flashing, unplug it.

If it is not cooking, then you need to test further.

If it just seems to be "running" with the door shut, but it is not cooking (as shown in the above tests) then note whether the oven lamp, internal cooling fan and turntable are running when the door is shut, but when you open the door, the turntable and colling fan go off.

This should mean you have a shorted main relay on the board. We can fix that, too.

Differing symptoms would indicate a bad door switch or door switch mount.

Our info file on door switches is here.

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.

Also 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.

GE Profile microwave PVM1790 starts, what I believe is an internal fan, when I open the door. I sure hope it's not the microwave component frying me.


You probably have a defective door switch, or a bad relay. You are not being microwaved. It would blow its internal fuse to prevent that from happening.

Microwave wii not shut off unless you open the door and sometimes starta when you shut the door.


Sounds like one of the door switches is shorted. Check all three for proper operation with power off. WARNING: Microwaves contain lethal voltage levels can be more than 4000V, more then enough to kill you! BEFORE doing an work on them, unplug from power and discharge the capacitors. If you don't know what you're doing its better to leave it alone and get it professionally serviced.

I have a GE Spacesmaker model #JVM1440BH04 that came on by itself and can't be shut off unless the door is opened. It does not seem to be cooking since nothing heats up unless the cook start buttons are...


The problem is in one of the door switches, "it is defective" this is a highly dangerous situation and should be checked immediately, the microwave oven should unplugged until a appliance repairman looks at it.
