Question about GE JE2160 Microwave Oven
We bought this GE Microwave in April 2007, had to replace a tube in July 2008, and now the turntable has made a track on the bottom of the unit, and the paint can be lifted off in a sheet. What can be done about about this? It seems that we bought a clunker. We had our other GE Microwave unit for 20 years with no problems.
Check the 3 wheels on the circular plastic part that's fitted below the turntable.
It sounds like they may need some filing down. Run your fingers around the wheels to see if there are any sharp bits of plastic that could be cutting into the paintwork on the base.
Clean out the base of your oven and apply a thin film of vaseline to each of the 3 wheels. This will help rotation in future.
Remember to keep cleaning out any excess food particles that may lodge below the turntable, as these will eventually slow down or stop the rotation, which in turn means that your food is not heated evenly throughout!!!
