    FIXED Microwave live but not running

    Dear Wise ones, I have an GE JKP61G. The keypad (see picture...microwave is unplugged) is completely functional (clock, timer, etc) except the start button: it acts as if the door is open. I pulled the door switch (picture below). It is sort of weird. When the switch is in the door-open...

    GE Profile Convection Microwave smokes with electrical burning smell on Convection use only. No issues during normal microwave use. GE FAQ says some smoking is normal due to dust accumulation, but this seems to be excessive. Any similar experiences to give advice would be appreciated. Doug
