This is caused by either a shorted hood thermal cutout / hood thermostat, or your control circuit board may need repair.

You should first check your hood thermostat to be sure it measures open (infinite) and not shorted (near zero).

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 usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

If it reads good, then your board will need to be repaired or replaced. You can order one here.

But we see (and repair) this board failure a lot, and we regularly repair them nationwide by mail for only $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

This failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

Let me know if I can help further.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Ge spacemakerxl microwave jvm1650 vent is not drawing air


It is possible, you have removed and checked the filters, still the intake is low even without the protective filters. The system will need to be taken apart to find the opstruction, or as you said a hole in the venting mechanism.

GE over the range microwave making grinding noise


This sounds like the stirrer. If it sticks or stops, the microwaves can damage or destroy it. You may have a bad stirrer or magnetron. There is an important bulletin that covers these problems. To see if yours is covered, see: http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf If you need more help, please follow-up.
