    Now its later in day it just doesn't run well or wont run at all. We had the magnetron replaced by GE earlier this summer.
    Could it be the door?
    A switch thats not working right when door opens or closes?
    Never seen a microwave run while door open or its fan run.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switches are most often damaged by opening the door while it's cooking (instead of pressing Stop / Clear first) or food
/ grease debris in the switch.

GE Profile XL1800 light out and fan starts running when door is closed


It is not the fault with the fan but the trigger to the fan is shorted. It can be the DOOR SWITCH or the Transistor switch from the board. A fault or error on the processor cannot be ruled out. Clean the main board and reset.

The repair or replace decision depends to some extent upon age and repair history.

The fan runs when the door is open just like it does when it's running. When the door is shut and not running the fan is off. I opend/shut the door 3 times firmly like the GE rep. told me to but it still...


Hi.

Disconnect the oven from power and allow cooling down. Most GE have temperature controlled fan system.

The Fan is controlled by main pcb and powered along the line passing through the door lock switch, with circuit supplying power to the magnetron and turntable motor.

The fan is also operated directly by the control board.

If the turntable was also running, then the door switch is shorted. In that case the magnetron may be working as well, better not to start the microwave oven.

If only the fan is running, then the main pcb must be replaced, or the damper motor relay must be replaced.

Call GE and arrange repair, the unit is faulty.

My JE 1860 microwave starts working when I open the door.


It sounds like the door switch is bad. It may be that the switch is shorted inside. I would think it may really run with the door open, and microwave you.

A simple test is to place a piece of bread in the microwave ( it heats up very fast) and then if your microwave was actually ON and generating RF, the bread would get hot very fast.. If it remains cool then only the fan is on. It appears that you may have a faulty door switch thou because once you open the door, your microwave should be off..

Are you sure the VENT is not on? That blower will operate regardless of the door open or closed so you must switch it OFF.

Microwave seems to turn on when door latch is opened


What's happening is you are activating one door switch a little before the other, and that is causing your light, fan, and turntable to come on. The plastic parts are not perfectly rigid, so they flex a little when you press the button, and that causes the lag to be more apparent. Even if you press the door open faster and look really close, you may notice the light, fan, and turntable coming on for a split second. That's perfectly normal. The relay on the control board must also be turned on before it will actually be cooking.
