This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

It's probably the lower switch.

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.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or 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

My GE Profile JVM1790 convection microwave has issue. Was using the convection portion when a small spark and flame appeared and then went out and soot and smoke was all inside and now will not heat up...


Yep, that sounds very much like the heating element burned out. It happens. You should be able to get a replacement from the manufacturer's website... or there may be a list of repair centers in the manual - pick one & try to order the heating element through them.

Convection oven doesn't heat


Possible that the relay is faulty or there is fault on the control panel. It can also be related to problems on the thermocouple or sensors which can cut off prematurely the element.

PROBLEM WITH SHARP R-1874TF CONVECTION OVEN


sometimes an over heat will shut down the oven for a little bit but lets look at other things
i dont believe the board to be bad but i do believe the heating element inside is fried or a wire got fried by heat
if you know how to use ohm tester i would check heating element and wireing first
then try to see if the timer gave out
