Hi.
All you need is a basic skills and common sense to replace the door switch. Provide the complete model number so I can get you the part number.

Simon.

Hi.

Remove the cover and perform the continuity test at the upper and lower door switches (monitor and door sensing). With door open both switches should reed no continuity. with door closed - continuity. If the switches are good - replace the control board.

Here are the breakdown diagram and Microwave replacement parts for General Electric PEB1590SM1SS MICROWAVE | AppliancePartsPros.com

Thank you. Post the results.

Simon.

Remove what cover? The panel with the buttons? Can I assume that when I remove the 'cover' that it will be obvious how to 'perform continuity test'. Again, I am not handy with this kind of thing.

Hi.

The "cover" is #1200 on the diagram if you open it.
To check the continuity you need a multimeter.

Here is an article on our forum:

I have recently had the same problem, and found this thread. We have a GE PT970S. At first, we noticed the turntable would turn when the door was opened. This lasted a few weeks, and then we noticed the turntable would stop turning and nothing would heat, but sporadically, the turntable would start again and then it heated food fine. Now, the turntable no longer spins and if I check it, the motor seems to be turning freely (there is not the normal motor sound you should hear if you spin it by hand). I checked the coupler, and it looks fine. I am curious:
1) Could a bad motor also stop the microwave from heating?
2) If not, does it seem plausible for a motor and a switch to go out at the same time on a 4 year old microwave?
3) Is it hard to separate the microwave from the oven in order to service it?

THANKS!!!

Default GE Microwave light and fan came on when door is open

I have a GE Spacemaker XL microwave (Model JVM1350AW002), and I have similar problem. Recently I noticed that when I opened the door the light and fan came on however the turn table didnít not move. I tested it with a cup of water and it didnít heat when door is open. Other than that, it works fine. What do you think the problem might be and how to repair it? Thanks.
