I have this mircrowave GE SpaceMaker JVM1631WJ03 for 2.5 years. Recently when I open the door, it may turns on the light, turns the turntable, and I hear the sound like the microwave runs when the door is close. I have to close the door and select Clear/Off to turn it off.

Which part do I have to replace ?

Thanks for your advice.

Hi Nykhoa,

Most likely the problem is a bad door switch (the lower one) which is stuck closed.

- The part number for the switch is AP2024367

Hi Gene,

Thanks a lot for your advice. I have never opened a microwave for repair. Do you think a novice can replace this switch ? Is there a diagram for this microwave so that I can start with ?

Thanks again,

Nykhoa

Hi Nykhoa,

If you know major safety rules how to work with electrical appliances and you have a simple ohmmeter - you can do it. The diagram should be behind the top grille on the left side or inside the control panel.

Gene, thanks again for your help. I have one more question so that I can order all the parts at one time, if I need more than one.

Besides the problem that I described, now when I close the door, it is difficult to make it start. With the door closed, I add minutes and press Start. The light turn on but the turntable does not run and I do not hear the normal sound when it runs properly. I have to open and close many times to make it start. Is this also caused by the bad switch or something else ?


Thanks for your advice,

Nykhoa.

Nykhoa,

As I said previously, the first failure suspect is the door interlock switch. You have to check it before taking any action.

Default Same problem!

I have a GE profile GV936826S 4//1999. Jsut last night I noticed that when I open the door the light and fan come on and the turn table moves. I am scared that the microwaves are also being emitted? Are they? How do I repair it?

Moist likely the problem is a bad secondary interlock switch. The model number you posted does not come up and I'm not able to give you more accurate advice.

Can a competent handy man repair an interlock switch if I order it from GE or had I best get an appliance repair guy to come out? What's my most cost effective way to get this repaired or, considering my microwave is 10 years old, should I get a new one?

The switch itself is very inexpensive and you can save a lot if you do it yourself. This part not too difficult to replace yourself, but I'm not able to give you any instructions because the model number you posted does not come up. You can use an after market switch which works perfect.

- The switch Part number: AP4352108
