Sometimes after my microwave finishes and I take the food out, when I shut the door, it automatically starts up again, even though the timer is complete. I'm not sure if it's just the fan running or it it's actually heating. This unit is just over 1 year old.

Re: My JVM1440 sometimes runs when I shut the door
It's almost certainly a door switch going bad or a loose door switch mount.
If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, info and a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

I'd say the door interlock switch has failed, and supplies a connection when it should not. Microwave ovens can be dangerous to anyone poking around inside, even when unplugged, so get a quote from a service tech. You might find that parts+labour is almost as much as a new one.
Microwave radiation being released through an open door is also a hazard, as it is known to cause eye cataracts, so don't get near if the oven does this.
