Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
My Microwave now shuts off after about three seconds of cooking. All of the lights light up for around 10 seconds, and then it resets to the time/date setup prompt. It does it every time now. For months before, it would randomly shut down in the same manner while cooking, but not at the three second mark, and not every time. Please help. I have the same problem with GE microwave that is above my oven. Model em03000hbb03, manufactured June 2005, Why has there not been any recall on these microwaves? There obviously is a malfunction in the making of these.
Were are all the problem solving suggestions??!!!! I am renting a house and this is happening to the spacemaker above the oven. This site sucks!! All these problems and not one answer to help point us in the right direction. WHAT THE ****!

We are all in the same boat. It is very annoying. I think it is a sensor tripping.

If the microwave runs for a few seconds and then shuts off, a door switch might have failed intermittently. Check each of the door switches for any signs of overheating, arcing, or burning. Also check each of them for continuity. Replace any of the switches that is visibly damaged or that only has continuity intermittently
the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad and
control panel might be defective. There are several other components
that can cause this problem, be sure to check any other components
before replacing this board.
the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad might be
at fault. This is not common. Generally speaking, if the microwave
display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but
some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the thermostat might
be defective. Watch our video on testing thermostat
