Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
Hi - I've had a GE SpacemakerXL JVM1443 for about 4 years. Suddenly last week, every time I shut the door, the microwave light stays on as well as a humming noise. I think this is just a fan and not actual heating. The microwave still works, but i have to unplug it between uses or it will just stay on. Any ideas?
That's almost certainly a failed primary interlock (upper door switch) or its mount is bad.
See our file on info on door switch diagnosis and replacement.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
