Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I have an above About 1 minute after cooking the vent fan will go on and stay on even after cooking or if you open the door. The vent will startup even when I boil water on the stove. The vent shuts off about 15-20 minutes later unless we unplug it. If I slam the door shut hard sometimes the vent will stop. Other than the vent fan coming and staying on the microwave works fine.
It may be a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel, such as a sticky relay.
I would suspect a sticky relay first, but the door switches should be checked.
If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
