Highpoint Microwave

Our Highpoint microwave has gotten a mind of its own.
My wife was making pasta and the fan turned on, by itself. That’s ok because there was steam coming from the water.
When we tried to turn it off, it wouldn’t. It did cycle through the speeds but would not turn off. As I headed for the breaker, to turn it off, it finally did. We tried turning on and off with no problem.
Has anyone experienced this?

Most convection ovens have something that will turn the fan on and off when certain events happen.

That microwave is working correctly. It sensed high temperature from the steam and turned on the fan. Once it cooled down, it turned the fan off. You will also see the fan come on if you run the microwave for a long period.
