Our GE Cafe over-the-range microwave, spontaneously turned itself on. We were fortunate that we were home and that we heard it promptly. It was very early in the morning and actually woke me up. The oven was making an alarm sound as if it was at the end of a program but it never turned off. There were many reports on the internet related to serious fires from this same type of incident and I do not feel as though we can leave it plugged in when not in the immediate area.
