Changing the lower switched fixed it!

A couple of notes from the install:

There are 3 switches, and the one I replaced was the bottom switch. The
top and bottom switch are the same switch, the middle is a door monitor switch and is a different part number. Either switch will fit in the latch housing assembly, so make sure you replace the correct switch. At first I replaced the middle switch and this did not fix the problem. I did not bother to look at the parts diagram to realize this was not the switch that I needed to replace.

I had to removed the entire latch assembly to replace the switch. No big deal just 2 screws

It's not obvious on how to remove the switch from the latch body. Just trying to pull it out does not work. You have to pry up on a little tab while pulling the switch out.

.5 total repair time, which would of gone faster if I had not replaced the wrong switch.

The deffective switch plunger lost it's "springy-ness" and was the reason the switch failed. Ten years and 3 kids worth of warming baby formula bottles really took a toll on it.



Thxs again Gene

Default GE MW w same problem - light + fan on w door open

I am recently having this problem and came across this site. MW works fine, but goes on when door is open. I will be ordering new door switches to hopefully solve this problem. I have a few questions:
Should I replace all door switches?
Anything else worth replacing while I have this apart?
History: Unit is 14 ys old. Stopped working 2X in past. Both times, unit had power but keypad not responding. Both times, took out unit and manually made sure connections were tight. Unit worked fine for about 3 ys each time. We tend to open door before time is up and probably slam door too hard.
Thanks

I need to replace all the door switches in my GE profile microwave as the fan goes on and turntable turns when I OPEN the door. I want to replace all door switches becasue I replaced one before, but shortly after it started doing it again. Can you please tell me all the generic doorswitch part numebrs GE JE1660WA03. It's 10 years old. I read the thread below - do you think it's emitting MV? What's the tin foil test?

Thank you Gene!!!!

The original parts are not expensive and I would not use aftermarket parts in such situation.

If you would like you can use Part number: AP4351467

Part number: AP4351467
instead of AP2024338 and Part number: AP4347888

Part number: AP4347888
instead of AP2024337

Gene.
