Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
My GE spacesaver microwave just started running on it's own. The only thing I used today was the vent fan button while cooking on the stove underneath. Turned the fan off and a few minutes later heard a wierd noise, almost like a timer ticking. That stopped then a few minutes later, it started running on it's own like it was cooking; light on, cooking sound, but turntable not turning. All the buttons appear to work properly. Help!
Thought I had answered this, but this is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or possibly a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.
Door 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 someone you know 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 "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.
If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.
