First you should determine whether it's cooking when it should not be, in this case anytime it is plugged in and the door is closed or open.

Do that by putting a cup of water in a microwave-safe container into the unplugged microwave, shutting the door, then plugging it for about a minute.

Then unplug the oven and check to see if the water is warmer.

If so, you have a shorted secondary relay on your microwave''s control circuit board, and we regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 with a one-year guarantee.

Do that test again by putting the water in, leaving the door open, and plugging the oven in for about 30 seconds or so. If you get any arcing or buzzing or flashing, unplug it.

If it is not cooking, then you need to test further.

If it just seems to be "running" with the door shut, but it is not cooking (as shown in the above tests) then note whether the oven lamp, internal cooling fan and turntable are running when the door is shut, but when you open the door, the turntable and colling fan go off.

This should mean you have a shorted main relay on the board. We can fix that, too.

Differing symptoms would indicate a bad door switch or door switch mount.

Our info file on door switches is here.

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.

How to replace door switch on advantium


Happened to my 2005 Advantium120 twice, both times after extended cooking/simmering on the cooktop (17" below). Solution was to leave unplugged for a good 48 hours (to dry out?) then plug in again and all is good. GE says to either raise the microwave 4" or stop boiling pasta on the stove, neither a good solution. Good luck!

I HAVE A GE MICROWAVE/BROWNER NODEL WES1384SM2SS. IT HAS STOPPED RUNNING. I CAN SET IT UP TO COOK BUT WHEN I HIT THE START BUTTON NOTHING HAPPENS.


Re: GE JES1384SF Mine quit working so I unplugged it and put a pot of boiling water in it and let the steam dissolve whatever was gumming things up. I used an electric hot plate to keep the water boiling. I let it boil for a couple of hours. I left the door 2/3 open. The microwave is working again. It is four years old and has been used every day, many times a day before it stopped working.

Mirowave won't stop running; fan runs, light is on only way to shut down is to unplug unit. Model:JVM1650WH05


Sounds like the control circuitry inside is bad,,,or the relay or switching device is stuck on...If the control circuit is bad then you will need someone qualified to repair the circuit...A word of caution...if you decide to try to fix the unit yourself I will tyell you that there are very high voltages inside that can KILL. Please do not service unless you are trained in electrical safety

GE Profile Space,aker 1800 microwave is making


You should keep it unplugged until it's fixed. If it's cooking while it should be off, that can damage the oven or even start a fire.

It's either a failed door switch or door switch mount, or a bad electrolytic capacitor on the control board, which we can repair for $39.95.

If you're hearing a fan or motor running, I'd suspect the switch. See this file for help.

If it's a buzz (like a power line buzz) then I'd suspect the board capacitor.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit) for more help.

Yes, there should be a ceramic (tubular) fuse under the cover on the top side where the power comes into the microwave.
