Question about GE JVM1490 Convection/Microwave Oven
My GE microwave will act fine until I hit start. The light inside comes on but nothing happens, the mins seconds count down but there is no fan. I switched the fuse but it's still the same. Do I need another microwave?
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.
