Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I have the same problem with the Automatic Fan Feature. It started turning on and off at odd intervals. Now, it seems to be on permanently. It's an eighteen year old appliance, but everything else works just fine. Is it a repair that I can safely make or have done fairly inexpensively? I am located in Southwestern Connecticut.
I would suspect your hood fan thermostat has shorted over time.
It should read open or infinity on a continuity check, but it will read near zero if shorted.
If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk (our disassembly video is there too)
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams here. A place to get parts for much less is here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
NOTE: There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.
