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.

GE Microwave JE2160 does not heat


Does it make any noises that it didn't before it failed?? It could be a bad secondary interlock switch, cook relay on the PCB, HV circuit problem or bad magnetron. You need an ohm meter to troubleshoot. If you take the cover off, you MUST short across the High Voltage Capacitor terminals to discharge any possible residual charge to prevent shock hazard.

How do I remove the control panel on model JE2160


You need to take the back cover off using a special tork wrench. If you don't have one a thin blade screw driver usually works. after getting the back cover off access is pretty easy to remove the screws from the panel. Make sure to discharge the capacitor before attempting any repairs and unplugged of course.

GE JE2160 light turns on when you open the door,but no display


This is probably a problem on the control panel, which we regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

But I'd like to first see the the
"mini-manual" (tech sheet) which should be hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille.

You can scan (at 300 dpi) at least the "schematic diagram" page and e-mail it to me at prototech@usa.net or you can fax it (in "detail" or super fine" mode) toll-free to 866-481-2802.

That way I first can see if anything else you can check might be the problem instead.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

Light Stays ON Inside - JE2160


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.
