It may be a stuck relay on or other problem on the control board.

Because of pure design (GE never confirm it) you need to fix lever lock. By closing door this lock not working in parallel. One sitch closes earlier than another.

Inside Light stays on and the Start Button will not work at all!


You probably broke the door sensor switch.

The part must be tested before replacement.

Parts can be purchased from Partselect, Appliancespartspro, or Repairclinic. Have a look on google.

Light stays on Model #JE2160 Light will not go off.


there are two latches on your microwave door 1 for cutting power off to the magnatron and 1 for the light, it sounds to me like the 1 for the licht has broke off look on your door and check for break mark in line with the other lug. if not then the switch is broke inside the actual oven.

If it's under warranty, I would contact GE Customer Service at http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/

If not, then I would suspect a bad door switch or a problem on the control board.
