GE JVM1660 1000 Watts Microwave Oven beeps every minute
This GE JVM1660 1000 Watts Microwave Oven seems to be working ok, but it beeps once every minute, kind of like the food it cooked is finished. However, the food had been removed long before, the door was closed, and yet it keeps beeping, but nothing special is in the display.
Unplugging the power and turning it back on did not help.
Resetting the date and time did not help.
Hopefully one of you knows what is wrong and what we should do to stop this beeping.

Try removing the power cord for about a minute, push all the touch pad 'buttons' and then plug it back in. If this doesn't work it sounds like you may have a bad door interlock switch or a bad PCM .. Good luck !
Try unplugging it, waiting a few minutes, then plugging it back in again. This is easy to try and sometimes works with malfunctioning electronic devices. I've had good results using this technique with my GE microwave and Westinghouse LCD TV to name a few.
the switch is ok. if it was bad itt would blow the fuse. ge had magnetron problems on the 1600 series. if you have an amprobe and are getting 110 volts from the control to the transformer. place the probe around just 1 wire to the transformer. if you get less than 12 amps replace the mag
The manual states that it will beep once a minute after food cooks until you open the door or press stop.
Other than that, it sounds like an error condition.
