The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

Otherwise, there may be a setting on your controls to turn the tone on and off, or it may need to have the control panel repaired. We do that for $39.95 in most cases.

I would like to turn off the bell sound when timer is done, how do i sidengage this

As with any electronic item if you do this yourself be sure it is unplugged, and be EXTREMELY CAUTIOUS when poking around and stay clear of the capacitors. They can store a lot of energy (think small explosion) even if the device has been unplugged for a while. So keep your hands and metal objects well clear of them. The capacitors will look like either a round or semi-flattened tin can with wires coming out of one end.

Take the cover off the microwave and inside you will see the motherboard. The speaker is very small, roughly the size of a coin. Unplug the speaker or clip the lead going to it.

All this being said, opening a microwave if you are not a professional might not be the best or safest idea. There are microwaves that allow you to easily adjust the sound volume, such as the GE Profile Series. Might be a safer and worthwhile investment!

How can I switch off the bell / ding on the microwave?

It is part of the warning sound for health and safety. It assures that the user is warned that it has either finished or is changing modes.

The microwave runs like normal but doesn't actually heat anything. I went to heat something and it came out cold. Timer set just fine, it ran and sounded like it always does, turntable turned, it dinged at...

The most likely problem is the magnetron that heats the food, the other less likely is the high voltage transformer that energizes the magnetron. To replace either part with labor would be as much if not more than a brand new microwave oven.

Have a GE microwave for three months bought it brand new and wife was making potatoes in it opened door to check on them and then closed door to continue cooking and it continues to count down but light...

The door switches are slightly out of alignment. If you run the microwave and shift the door up or down, the micro might begin working..
The control panel must be removed and the door switches adjusted. I would not suggest you doing this yourself, as it may affect the microwave leakage through the door gap.

Microwave stopped heating. Everything else still works - it comes on, the light comes on and the plate rotates and it dings when it done, but te food is still froozen.

Sounds like either the magnetron or its high voltage power source has failed.
It is extremely dangerous to work on the magnetron side of the power system. It CAN and DOES KILL!

Is there a way to disarm the "bell"/"ding" that signals the microwave is finished?

Since you did not include a model number.... The generic answer is yes there is a way.. but involves unsoldering things off the main board.

Belling Microwave Problem

Apparently this one has a mechanical timer. That lack of electronic controls does lessen the complexity. I don't know about the specific regulations concerning British / EU microwaves, but I'm sure there's a fuse inside. In most cases, just replacing a blown fuse will not be the cure, unless one finds the reason it blew. What made it fail (if it did) is the real question. Loose fuse holder allowed excess heat? Shorted component or wiring? Or, is there a failure in the mechanical timer that's causing an open circuit connection? That can certainly happen. Also, a door switch may have failed. This is most commonly caused by opening the door while it's cooking, instead of turning the oven off first. I would suggest you contact Belling service:§ion=ContactBelling Good luck.
