Question about GE JE1640 Microwave Oven
Microwave works fine except that when not in use with the door close it makes an annoing hum sound, if I pull the door out amout 1/8 of an inch the hum stops but I believe the inside fan that cools the magnetron is spinning (when I prop the door)
The Model number is 721.89940490 Serial number is 50308206
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.
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.
