Question about GE JVM1630 Microwave Oven
It starts from two weeks ago. The microwave oven will start to operate automatically when I open the door. It stops after 1 second, but it scares the hell out of me. Should I just change a new one?
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. 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.
If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

There should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It's very helpful when troubleshooting.
If you think the problem is on the control panel, which we repair these nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.
