Customer Question

Hi. I have a GE PVM1790SR1SS and it will not turn on. For a while prior to this, when we would be finished cooking something and shut the door, it would turn on again. It's GE Profile microwave/convection oven. Only about 2 years old

Hi, two things cause this issue on these units. The main control board or a door switch. Check the door switches with a multimeter. If the switches all test good, the main board is shorted and will need to be replaced.
