    Now its later in day it just doesn't run well or wont run at all. We had the magnetron replaced by GE earlier this summer.
    Could it be the door?
    A switch thats not working right when door opens or closes?
    Never seen a microwave run while door open or its fan run.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switches are most often damaged by opening the door while it's cooking (instead of pressing Stop / Clear first) or food
/ grease debris in the switch.

GE Profile XL1800 light out and fan starts running when door is closed


It is not the fault with the fan but the trigger to the fan is shorted. It can be the DOOR SWITCH or the Transistor switch from the board. A fault or error on the processor cannot be ruled out. Clean the main board and reset.

The fan runs when the door is open just like it does when it's running. When the door is shut and not running the fan is off. I opend/shut the door 3 times firmly like the GE rep. told me to but it still...


Hi.

Disconnect the oven from power and allow cooling down. Most GE have temperature controlled fan system.

The Fan is controlled by main pcb and powered along the line passing through the door lock switch, with circuit supplying power to the magnetron and turntable motor.

The fan is also operated directly by the control board.

If the turntable was also running, then the door switch is shorted. In that case the magnetron may be working as well, better not to start the microwave oven.

If only the fan is running, then the main pcb must be replaced, or the damper motor relay must be replaced.

Call GE and arrange repair, the unit is faulty.

My JE 1860 microwave starts working when I open the door.


It sounds like the door switch is bad. It may be that the switch is shorted inside. I would think it may really run with the door open, and microwave you.

Our Microwave keeps running unless we give it a whack!


Hi firstly to see if it is producing energy, buy some 5mm light emitting diodes from an electronics store. cut off the leads close to the plastic body.
place in microwave and put on cook for max 10 secs, if the led's light up you have microwave energy, shut off the oven as soon as they glow otherwise you end up with a mess.
If you have energy then your problem is most probably the door interlock micro switches which after time do not operate properly. let me know the results and we can go further.

A simple test is to place a piece of bread in the microwave ( it heats up very fast) and then if your microwave was actually ON and generating RF, the bread would get hot very fast.. If it remains cool then only the fan is on. It appears that you may have a faulty door switch thou because once you open the door, your microwave should be off..

Are you sure the VENT is not on? That blower will operate regardless of the door open or closed so you must switch it OFF.

Fan runs and turntable turns when door is opened


SRUte- This sounds as if you have a collapsed door switch, this would cause this problem,I would not recommend using it until repaired. But as far as recommending a good brand,each to his own everyone is different.I have done repairs for years,and I Love Panasonic products,they seem to have minimal problems.I hope this helps you out. cooltek Mar,3/08
