There may be an option to turn that off with the keypad, but your best bet would be to contact Jenn-Air.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Well first of all I would take a piece of paper or newspaper, and put it up by the vents, the paper should be sucked on by the vent.. If it does that you have suction. if it does not hold the paper, you should get a warranty repair, i am assuming this new.

If the unit is install to far above the stove you may have a issue.

But long story short, the room vented units, do not really pull much smoke, they pull better on outside venting. you are just putting smoke/steam back into the room, just a little cleaner.

Hello my JENN AIR Jenn Air JMV8208BAS Microwave won't turn off properly. When it comes to the end of the cooking time it beeps and the vent at the top closes but it keeps making a noise and it is still...


I would first suggest checking the bottom door switch and its mount.

The full service / installation manual is here.

If it's not a switch issue, you may have a sticking relay on your control board, which can be economically repaired. Details are here.

Jenn-Air Microwave vent grill opens and closes


I have this same problem occasionally. Pull the vent grill open and look for a white cam that rotates when the microwave is on. To the right of that cam, there are two gray switches. The bottom switch should have a red tab that pops out. When the vent grill opens and closes continuously, the red tab is stuck in. Take a flat screwdriver or tooth pick and push gently in on the red tab to release it. It must get stuck due to grease or dirt accumulation. Good luck.

I removed my over the range microwave and discovered that the mounting plate and vent are extremely hot, to the point where it is heating up my kitchen. Any ideas why?


Check the damper at the hood vent exit. Check the vent where it exits the building. I have found some that were stuck shut from the grease that is taken out through them. If end vents are satisfactory, check the entire length of the vent system. Either physically or attach a vacuum to the vent pipe and set it up to blow air. Tape off the ballance of the vent entrance and turn on the vac. Check the exit end for air flow.

this is dangerous; replace or adjust your door switches the interlock switches should only allow you to turn on the microwave when the door is closed
