The door switches are slightly out of alignment. If you run the microwave and shift the door up or down, the micro might begin working..
The control panel must be removed and the door switches adjusted. I would not suggest you doing this yourself, as it may affect the microwave leakage through the door gap.

Ge space saver microwave oven Model number HVM1540SN2SS. Interior fan turns on when door is open. This just started yesterday. Please help


The possible issue may be some door sensor broken or work abnormal. Double check three door sensors, especially for two door sensors who are working on normal close state.

Turntable and Fan won't stop running when door is open.


With the model number, we can offer more specific advice or an estimate.

But since FixYa does not notify us of follow-ups, you will need to post a new help request.

Active Vent opens and closes continuously while unit is idle


I had GE look at the problem today (my microwave is less than a year old and under warranty). He replaced the cam louver and that seems to have fixed the problem. This is a small motor accessible by removing three screws and the active vent door. The whole visit was less than 15 minutes.<!-- from fixya rte -->

The only component that works is the potato baker


Please note that FixYa is not notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

So please post a NEW question, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, as well as the answers to these questions:

Is there anything on the display?

Does the light come on when you open the door?

Do you hear any beeps when you press a pad on the keypad?

Also let us know it if failed while in use or while idle.

Thanks!

GE microwave won't turn off


Just checked the GE website. Had the same problem with my 5 year old microwave. GE website says to close and open the door quickly three times. First time I did this it didn't work. Second time I closed the door with some significant force and reopened it more quickly. Worked. Unplugged the microwave, plugged it back in, still fine.

GE JVM1640 won't heat


These microwave ovens have a series of door switches. One of yours has gone bad or a plastic finger on your door mechanism that pushes the switches is worn or broken off. They are commonly called NC or NO swithes some ovens have up to 6 of these working together.If you have no expertise in this field consult a repair shop. Please rate me
Comment posted on Jan 12, 2009 there are two types ,normally open and normally closed, NO NC . u have to check continuity on each one and each switch will have a diagram on the side showing its in use position. I hope this has been helpful

No power on GE Profile Spacemaker II Microwave Oven


SWITCHES ARE THERE FOR A PURPOSE-----SAFETY,,SAFETY...ALWAYS CHECK A MICROWAVE WITH THE POWER CORD REMOVED---YOUR MESSIN WITH A RF VOLTAGE THAT WILL KILL YOU!!!! UNPLUG,,UNPLUG,,,UNPLUG
TRY TO CHECK THE FOLLOWING...SINCE YOU HAVE THE COVER OFF,,LOOK AT THE DOOR LATCHES WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR AND MAKE SURE THEY MAKE CONTACT ON THE DOOR SWITCHES,,3 OF THEM,,,--AN OHM METER IS THE TRICK FOR THIS - SOMETIMES YOU CAN SEE PLASTIC BROKEN ON THE SWITCH ITSELF...ALSO LOOK AT THE COMPLETE SWITCH HARNESS (CHECK FOR BROKEN PLASTIC PIECES) THAT HOLD THE SAFETY SWITCHES...THE MIDDLE SWITCH (MONITOR SWITCH) CLOSES WHEN YOU "OPEN" THE DOOR,,YES "OPEN "THE DOOR AND IT WILL BLOW THE MAIN FUSE..IF IT'S SHORTED.

THERMAL PROTECTORS RARELY GO BAD--IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WHERE IT TAKES 25 MINUTES TO COOK A BAKE" POTATOE"--JUST LIKE THE VICE PRESIDENT--THAT'S A THERMAL PROTECTOR..
PLEASE BE CAREFULLLLLL TUNICA

My microwave is brand new. When I close the door, the dish rotates and the light stays on. Help!


Test 3 Door Switches. Intermittent, Skipping, Maybe Burnt internally or Spade contacts Burnt. Door switches should Open/Close or Closed/Open. A Meter or Continuity Tester Works. Audible Sound Hearing Helps on Continuity Tester. Listen for Nice Clear open-Close or Close-Open sound. If no Sound or Skips ( Intermittent ) Just found Your Problem. One of the Door Switches is Not working right. Now You Can Make & Save Money by Doing it Yourself.

GE Microwave Model JES735


Yes, the fan blade is hitting something inside.Usually by opening the microwave, you can slide or reposition the plastic fan blade on the shaft.Probably this happened in shipping to the store where you bought it.CAUTON:make sure the unit is unplugged before you attempt this.Other option is return for replacement.
