When you hit "Start" to microwave, do the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable all come on?

Any unusual noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here: http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/mwd_ad_aug_2008_background.mp3

And what is your full model number from the tag on / in the unit?

These answers will help me judge whether it's in the high voltage section (magnetron, transformer, or diode) or the control section (door switch or control board relay or connection).

Please post a new help request with your brand and full model number from the tag and the answers to these questions so we can help you properly.

Why mirowave je2160f01 doesnt heat the food


This is usually caused from a bad magnetron. The door interlock switches couls be bad or the high voltage diode could be bad.

Mirowave wont start


I assume from your description that you can set power and time but nothing kicks in when you press start?? This could be a control panel fault but may be a problem with the door lock/switches. Check that the spring on the door hooks is ok, just lift it up and check it returns to down position by itself. If the microswitches do not make properly when the door is closed the m/w will not start because it assumes the door is open. A microwave (even when switched off) can be storing a high voltage so unless you are trained I would suggest you get an expert to take a look. BSH is Neff service division 0844 872 8999, they offer a one off repair plan, which covers your first repair and then any further repairs for a year. You can pay monthly by DD to spread the cost. (This may be age related so as yours m/w is nearly 10years old, it may not be eligible).
Hope this helps.

The oven is not heating up but everything else is working.What is the problem


More than likely the Magnatron has gone bad. this is the device that atcually creates the micro waves that create the heat. They go bad after several years of use. They can be replaced but mirowave ovens are generally cheap enough to get a new on instead of repairing the old one.

Kenmore mirowave # 72162643200 handle is broken


I have the exact same problem and the cost for a tech to replace the door is $80 less than buying a new one. They have to remove the unit from the cabinets and pull off the exterior box to unscrew the door hinge. Mine is only 3 years old. I also bought a new oven range. Never really use it. Decided it was time to use the self cleaning. It did not work. $280 to put a new board in. 4 months later I went to clean it and again it did not work. The f*^ing thing only cost $500. Decided Easy off will have to do. Kenmore s*&ks

As for the door... I very CAREFULLY used super glue/ gel and it did the job!

Owners of any GE WES-series microwave might want to look at this blog post.

GE Customer Service is here. I would contact them.

No parts are available for this model besides the turntable parts. Scary...
