Fan runs when door is closed and no time set.


Some GE units were starting on their own. I would definitely unplug this oven and call GE to make sure yours wasn't one of the ones being re-called.

Kenmore model 721 850 the cooling fan doesn't run all the time


This could be due to a intermittent micro switch, or a faulty cooling fan. This is critical in keeping the magnetron cool when cooking.

My Sharp Micro Convection Model R1870 fan behind the touch panel keeps running for 50 seconds after the microwave turns off,. this is not the vent fan. it also runs for 50 seconds when you turn the...


If the fan seems to run even after the microwave had completed the cycle, then it is possible that the drive to the fan is having a time delay. Also it has to be made sure that the magnetron has been cut OFF power or else it is not a good situation. You will have to remove the control panel and check on the board, check the drive to the fan, since the processor cuts off the fan and magnetron at the same time the fan circuit must be traced. Look to the circuit after identifying the fan wiring and back check using a multimter if you are able to trace. If not take help as this can be harmful in case the microwave works till the fan cuts off. A faulty capacitor on the board can create this time delay.

Does the exhaunst fan turn on automatically when we cook or warm food items in our Samsung Microwave -- SMH 9187W?


Some interesting reading on page 8 of the owner's manual:

"Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite and spread if the vent fan is operating.To minimize automatic fan operation, use adequate sized cookware and use high heat on surface units only when necessary."

And on page 20:

"If the temperature becomes too hot around the microwave oven, the fan in the vent hood will automatically turn on at the LEVEL 2 setting to cool the oven. The fan will automatically turn off when the oven has cooled down sufficiently. This is an automated process and cannot be turned off. The fan may stay on for 30 minutes or more after the cooktop and microwave controls are turned off. The Vent Fan will only operate in 1~4 levels modes while the microwave is working."

"Using the Vent delay off button
1. Press the Delay Off button once to turn the fan off after 1 minute.
2. Press the Delay Off button twice to turn the fan off after 3 minutes.
3. Press the Delay Off button three times to turn the fan off after 5 minutes.
4. Press the Delay Off button fiour times to turn the fan off after 10 minutes.
5. Press the Delay Off button five times to turn the fan off after 30 minutes."

GE Profile Spacemaker keeps asking for time date reset and will not operate


The power to the unit is drooping (when the heavy microwave load kicks in) causing the reset.
Try plugging it into a different outlet (whole different circuit if possible) and if that works then you have a wiring problem to the original outlet.

Mircowave works, exhaust door opens, fan stop working


From looking at the owner's manual, it looks like the vent fan is only supposed to come on when the internal temperature of the microwave gets too high OR when you press the VENT FAN pad. Here are a couple of fan-related excerpts from the owner's manual, which can be found here: http://products.geappliances.com/ProdContent/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SKUOBJECTS&DOCUMENT=Use%20and%20Care%20Manual&SKU=JVM1840BD (or the better URL here: http://tinyurl.com/yn7r6g) Automatic Fan An automatic fan feature protects the microwave from too much heat rising from the cooktop below it. It automatically turns on if it senses too much heat. If you have turned the fan on, you may find that you cannot turn it off. The fan will automatically turn off when the internal parts are cool. It may stay on for 30 minutes or more after the cooktop and microwave controls are turned off. - Vent Fan The vent fan removes steam and other vapors from surface cooking. Press VENT FAN once for high fan speed, twice for medium fan speed, a third time for low faw speed, or a fourth time to turn the fan off. Press the VENT FAN BOOST pad for extra fan speed. - Hope this helps.
