Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I have a problem with the fan and interior light staying on after the item is finished cooking. I have been keeping the door open a while until it does not go on when I close it. Any suggestions?
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. Its continuity must be checked.
Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

In many brands, there is also a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.
If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.
