Question about GE JVM1440 Microwave Oven
My microwave was working, but when I opened the door a few seconds before the timer went off, it stopped working completely. I checked the main fuse panel and it was fine, so I suspect I've blown an internal fuse. There is a panel at the top of the inside of the unit with open/close arrows. I suspect this may be for servicing, and could contain the fuses. Can you offer any suggestions?
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.
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 should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It's very helpful when troubleshooting.
