Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
My GE Profile Spacemaker XL JMV1460 sometimes turns on even though there is no time remaining. I open the door and remove food after it initially stops, but when you close the door it starts running again--but no time remains on the machine, and it will keep running until you open the door again. Twice the microwave even turned on itself: both times I witnessed this were after a sudden jolt--like a neighbor slamming door that shakes the shared wall where the microwaved is located. Aside from a ghost in the machine, what might be the problem? Is it better to fix or get a new one?
Sounds like there is a stray piece of wire or other metal floating around inside the case. Remove the cover and any breakables in the microwave (the power cord is unplugged for this), turn it upside down over a table and shake it, pound the bottom, and shake it some more--likely the offending piece will drop out onto the table. If so, put it back together and whack it to see if that fixed the problem (cord plugged back in). This process can be repeated.

Buy another one...we're having the same problem for over a week now with a Kenmore. I don't believe in "reviews" anymore...ours is only a year old; I guess that's about how long they're good for. Before this we had a Sharp - great: for 2 years!
