I would say you have a faulty door switch. Replace the door switch that is faulty.
Hope that helps.

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.

Fan runs when door is closed and no time set.


Some GE units were starting on their own. I would definitely unplug this oven and call GE to make sure yours wasn't one of the ones being re-called.

GE Profile XL1800 light out and fan starts running when door is closed


It is not the fault with the fan but the trigger to the fan is shorted. It can be the DOOR SWITCH or the Transistor switch from the board. A fault or error on the processor cannot be ruled out. Clean the main board and reset.

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!

Fan continuously runs, have to leave door open


Check the door switches with digital meter, usually find one bad one. Set meter to ohms and test, some will be normally open and others closed, check with the door open and closed.

You should first be sure your filters are clean and that your ductwork is clear.

See this link for a bulletin that may address your problem.

Otherwise, see this link in case you have a sticky door switch or relay.

I have a GE jvm1790 microwave that when its pluged in, the magnatron fan runs with the interior light is on constantly. I can't start either the microwave or convection. Everything stops when the door is...


The megatron tube is not working. The microwave should turn off when the door is opened for safety. If it is still under warranty, return it. If not, you may consider replacing the unit. I know its expensive, but its just taking up cabinet space tonight.

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.

Fan and light constantly on


which fan? the exhaust fan or the control board cooling fan? the cooling fan is controlled by a thermostat just behind the control panel. it turns the fan to protect the board from overheating.
