Q:

GE Microwave HVM1540LN1CS HVM1540LN1CS

A:

Thank you for being Sears’ valued member and for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about your microwave. I am so sorry it turns on when the door is opened. I know what a time saver the microwave is and I am sure you want this issue fixed quickly.  In this case I recommend you unplug the microwave until you can have it serviced by a qualified technician. 
 
We do not give diagnostic or repair information on microwave ovens because they are inherently dangerous to service. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is unplugged from the power supply. Special equipment is needed to work on a microwave starting with an anti-static wrist strap grounded to the microwave to even test components in it. Even minor door repairs and adjustments can cause microwave leakage, and a microwave shielding leakage test MUST be performed using a survey meter after ANY/ALL microwave service. 
 
For these safety reasons I strongly recommend having this repair completed by a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online at www.SearsHomeServices.com or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME (1-800-469-4663). Here at SearsPartsDirect.com we love to help you with your repairs, but our expert advice is that microwaves are just too dangerous for a do-it-yourself project. 
 
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with any other questions and repairs in the future. Thank you for choosing Sears.

Q:

My control board HVM1540LN1CS Ge Microwave

A:

Thank you for submitting your question. Microwaves contain high-voltage components that can retain a lethal electrical charge of up to 2200 VAC -- even when the microwave is unplugged. Repairs and adjustments, even minor ones such as door removals, can cause microwave leakage. A microwave shielding leakage test should be performed after any microwave service. It is for these safety reasons that Manage My Life is unable to assist customers in microwave repairs or troubleshooting. I recommend scheduling for service online with our Sears Home Services team. I apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

A:

We don't recommend that you attempt to repair the microwave yourself. Microwaves contain high-voltage components that can retain a lethal electrical charge of up to 2200 VAC -- even when the microwave is unplugged. Repairs and adjustments, even minor ones such as replacing fuses, can cause microwave leakage. A microwave shielding leakage test should be performed after any microwave service. It is for these safety reasons that we are unable to guide you in microwave repairs and instead recommend scheduling service with a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online with Sears Home Services or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME. We thank you for your understanding in this matter and hope we can help you with other questions and repairs in the future.

NOTE: It is normally more economical to replace the microwave instead of having it serviced. The Sears.com website has many reasonably priced current microwave models.
