I have friend with this problem, has same model. Vent fan in the hood goes on by itself and you can't turn off (he mentioned light too but unsure). Had trouble finding owner's manual that would download correctly but did find this one of similar model (jvm1450):
http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/ge_appliances/jvm1451.html#

On page 29 describes, "automatic fan." When a sensor detects heat from cooktop, it turns fan on low speed. Says: "If you have turned the fan on you may find that you cannot turn t off. The fan will automatically tun off when the internal parts are cool. It may stay on for 30 minutes or more after the cooktop and microwave controls are turned off."

That's too overtechnical for me but sounds close to solution

Hello,

what this means is that your oven has develop a partial contact from the wire which supply power to the fan of your oven

what you need to do to fix up your oven is to unscrew the oven then trace the wire down to the fan you will see two wire red and black or white either of this wire is touching the body of the oven this while the fan come up it self then make sure that all wire are well place on there position

thank you and good lock .

Why Auto fan seems to go on prematurely


Hi,

The vent fan comes on if your steaming or creating heat unit it to protect the control unit. So I assume this was happening when the fan came on? I hope this answers your question. When this happens the unit will turn off when it cools down all by itself.

The microwave occasionally shuts itself off. The


You are tripping a high limit switch which means the cooling fan is busted or the microwave is installed to close to something. That or your door interlock switches are sticking.

Ge jvm1540dm2ww over the range unit: have a gas range and the fan on the above mounted microwave once in awhile turns on automatically while something is cooking on the range below it....


The heat sensor in the electronics panel senses the rise in heat from the stove below. Once the amount of heat reaches a certain level, the cooling fan turns on to keep the electronics inside the microwave cooled.

I wouldn't worry about it. mine does the same thing.

GE Microwave Profile Spacemaker Runs on its own


Your microwave turning on by itself is a "self preservation feature" of the GE Profile Advantium and maybe some other models. Read the manual, When your over the range oven gets warm enough, for whatever reason the venting fan comes on until a satisfactory oven temperature is reached. You are not permitted to shut the vent fan off. Also it seems a temperature near room temp must be achieved before it shuts the fan motor off, it is very annoying. We had to return our Advantium because of fan noise. I configured the ovens vent fan to the recirculate direction because we do not have a vent duct that exits the house over our range. When the vent fan acting as the ovens cooling fan automatically turned on we would have to leave the house to hear each other talk. Too bad we really liked the oven other than that major problem.

This can happen when there is high heat on the stovetop (or the underside of the microwave).

Otherwise, it sounds like the fan control on your control panel is shorting or sticking.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.
