If it goes dead or blows the breaker or GFI when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

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

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

The megatron tube is not working. The microwave should turn off when the door is opened for safety. If it is still under warranty, return it. If not, you may consider replacing the unit. I know its expensive, but its just taking up cabinet space tonight.

Hi



Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described the issue seems to be with the door switch that has gone bad and should be replaced as everything else is working fine so don’t think its fuse or anything else that has gone bad. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved else post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

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.

GE has the manuals for most of their appliances on their site: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ . Just enter the model number and click Submit.
The direct link to the manual for the JVM1790 Over-the-Range Convection/Microwave oven is here: http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-40480-1.pdf . GE only lists the JVM1790CK, JVM1790BK, JVM1790WK and JVM1790SK.

I hope this helps.

Will the template for JVM1790 be the same as earlier GE models?


Make your own template of the holes in the top of your cabinet and lay it over the new unit and see if they align. As long as your replacing GE with GE it probably will work.
