Customer Question

I have an older ge profile microwave. Model JEM31SF001. Cosmetically In good shape and still cooks food. Occasionally while running however, the digital readout starts fluttering and the unit cuts out. It will restart immediately if you restart the unit. This unit fits well in the existing cabinet. The new models are 1" taller than the old and are about 1/8" to tall to get in the opening. Any idea on the part that could be faulty?
