After unplugging the microwave, I took the side/top panel off by removing the screws on the back*. Inside I found the piece that had broken off the part that pushes the door release. I then glued this piece back on using "Extreme Power" medium advanced performance instant adhesive. I bought this glue in a hobby shop in Richardson, Texas. I waited 12 hours for the glue to set. The door has been opening for the last two days.
*With the cover off, you can open the door by pushing the door release.

    I noted they have security screws (star shape with a dot in the center). Did you have a special tool to open the back screws or was yours ordinary philips screws?

    I am having trouble getting to your starting point -can't get the cover off. Thanks.

Is the micowave dangerous and can we fix it.


You did not provide the make or model of your Microwave, but to give you a generic answer, it sounds like there may be an issue with the control board or the door interlock switch.

If you are not familiar with repairing electrical appliances, it is best to call a qualified service company or bring it to a repair center. If you have the owner's manual or user guide, there should be some information about where and how to have the oven serviced.

The micowave will need to be relocated where there is more room, or the cabinet. The final option is working with a smaller microwave oven.

My control panel will set for time other functions will work and and light and fan time will reset but will not turn. on noticed that the door sags and the upper prong that keeps it closed is broken off....

due to the fact that micowaves produce extreme amounts of high range rayons the units are constructed with several safety features one of the main ones being twin micro switches built into the door latching. when the door is open it sends a signal to the microwave to stop working so unless both latches are in place and strike the switches the unit will think the door is open and not respont to cook. you will have to have the door latch replaced parts are available form as well as ebay and as close as your local reapir shop.

best of luck

GE Profile micowave model JE2160SF001 won't cook

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If the switch mount is broken, it's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches:

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There may be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden elsewhere, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type

Micowave turns on when you open the door.

Your door switch is not working correctly, the repair would run at least 100, it might be better for you to just replace this one, Sorry
