Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
So is it cooking okay?
I would guess that your hood thermostat is failing.
The hood thermostat's job is to turn on the exhaust / vent / hood fan whenever the temperature above the cooktop gets too high.
A thermostat can only trip so many times before it starts to fail. Then it may come on by itself from time to time then finally stay on permanently.
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.
We even have a video on our site that shows you how to safely & easily remove the control panel assembly in less than 5 minutes so you can check out your oven.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
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 & testing.
We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
