My GE Microwave Convection Oven model JE 1390WV runs whenever the door is open. It microwaves on the normal settings, but when the door is opened it turns on and runs.


DO NOT USE IT!!!! THERE IS A SWITCH IN THE DOOR LATCH THAT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED.
AGAIN DO NOT USE IT!!!! IF ITS RUNNING WITH THE DOOR OPEN YOU COULD DO SERIOUS DAMAGE TO YOUR HAND OR ARM IF IT IS NEAR THE OPEN DOOR

My microwave keep working when I open the door and it is stopping when I close the door.Then working normal but I cannot keep my door open, it keeps running. What can I do??


First, It is very very dangerous for a microwave to run with door open. The door is also a shield to protect you from the microwave radiation. There should be a safety interlock to prevent this from happening. DO NOT USE the microwave! Seek out professional repair or replace the unit.

Microwave runs when door is open


Hey friend, thanks for your post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire microwave is running when the door is opened. I have identified a few possibilities could be the control panel or your door. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend having a professional come and properly diagnose your appliance. -Matt

Microwave keeps running with door open


I'd say the door interlock switch has failed, and supplies a connection when it should not. Microwave ovens can be dangerous to anyone poking around inside, even when unplugged, so get a quote from a service tech. You might find that parts+labour is almost as much as a new one.

Microwave radiation being released through an open door is also a hazard, as it is known to cause eye cataracts, so don't get near if the oven does this.

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.

Microwave is still running when the door is open


The cooling fans run for a time after the magnatrons have stopped, The magnatrons are the heating components so I dont think you are in any danger as the microwave doors are double locked so the magnatrons cant run once the door is open

MIcrowave runs with the door open also


your door switch is mis-adjusted,furthermore the other safety switch on the door should have blown the power fuse in the unit,because by design for safety it produces a short circuit if door opens under operation,so if door was taken off and replaced it was not adjusted properly

Microwave runs when door is opened and is not programmed to run.


Sounds like a defective door switch.  DO NOT USE UNTIL FIXED!!  Or replace the unit.  Microwave ovens have door switches to prevent operation when the door is open because the microwaves are dangerous to humans outside the unit.  The door and cabinet contain the microwaves when it is operating correctly.

Microwave runs when door open


This is probably a a bad door switch or door switch mount. Chances are only the fan and light are running when you open it, but better safe than sorry. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure but not the only one. I have a text file called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems, and a file called "safety.txt" which is of vital importance. You can find these files by searching at Yahoo.com (not Google) for this: microwave display safety.txt If you still have a problem, please write back with more detail. Be safe!
