How can I get the fan to turn off when the microwave is turned off?

Most GE over the range microwave ovens have a cavity heat thermostat. if the exhaust fan cut on due to external heat generated to oven, the fan will run until unit totally cools down. in this case unplug unit. Also fan can run if you have a broken door paw or if one of the door secondary switches is bad.

Mmv5165bas vent fan will not stop running

Check to see if there's a relay providing power to the fan. If there is, the contacts might be sticking in the closed position. Assuming that this is an over-the-range unit, disconnecting the vent fan completely might not be a good idea as heat/steam from foods cooking on the range would more likely damage the microwave.

Maytag mmv4205bab continues to run after time is up. The fan does not circulate, but it continues to heat.

Our microwave in office won't shut off. It continues to heat and fan is running as soon as we close the door. Tried everything, unplugged, canceled everything. Please let me know what to do.

Exhaust fan is running constantly, without even

It could be that the fan button is sticking or a contact has welded itself closed therefore its getting power all the time.

Constantly runs but does not heat

The circuit board is faulty. It should be covered under the warranty. Call GE or the place of purchase.

Microwave fan will not shut off

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

Sometimes this will also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

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

We had this happen to us tonight. We unplugged the microwave oven for 15 seconds and then plugged it in, but it the fan was still running. We then unplugged it for 30 minutes and the fan worked properly when we plugged it in again.
