Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
"Active Vent" door opens and closes continuously when the unit is idle. This is a narrow panel along the top of the face of the unit, hinged at the bottom. It normally opens automatically during just about every operation, and closes at the end. It worked fine until about 6 months ago. Unplugging for a while does not clear it, nor does turning the fan on & off or any other normal operation. Random selections on the touch panel eventually clears it, but so far we have not identified a pattern. Is there some sort of reset sequence used by service personnel?
GE profile spacemaker microwave JVM2070WH001, s/n LF967318S, mfg June 2003, under cabinet & over range mounted.
I had GE look at the problem today (my microwave is less than a year old and under warranty). He replaced the cam louver and that seems to have fixed the problem. This is a small motor accessible by removing three screws and the active vent door. The whole visit was less than 15 minutes.<!-- from fixya rte -->
