My GE microwave (Model WES1450DN1BB) auto-started during the night, becoming extremely hot to the touch. If this had occurred during the day, I'm certain it would have caused a fire.

I have since purchased a new microwave and will never use a GE microwave again. From some on-line research, I understand that this is not an uncommon occurrence with these microwaves, so it is very troubling that GE is able to continue to manufacture these appliances.
