Mine went dead after about 6 months. I had problems with my breakers and I found out that it was the microwave that blew all of them. I also found out that this perticular microwave is a fire hazard and should be recalled. It has caused me alot of headache. The breakers in my house are brand new and they are put out by GE also. It caused me to loose the food in my freezer, I did not know my freezer had lost power. It would cause my entire lights to go off and then they would come back on. I have checked around and I found out that the power cord on the back of the unit is very loose. I had a person to come in and look at it, he thinks its the power cord.

If your microwave continues to be running when you open up the door or when the door is open it could be an issue with the doors interlock switch. A proper functioning door switch provides the power to other components on the microwave and should interrupt power when the microwaves door is opened. The microwave will have to be repaired.

You would have to remove the outer cabinet to gain access but that would expose you to dangerously high, even lethal voltages and is not recommended.

Hello, Jacque -

GE provides a website which offers owner's manuals. This is the link: https://www.geappliances.com/ge/service-and-support/literature.htm . You will need to enter the model number for your microwave/convection oven to find, save, and print the manual.

Best wishes.
