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.

We repair these control panels on a regular basis for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Please write back with your brand and model number if you need further help.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

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.
