9 posts in this topic

Hi, I am requesting a service manual for a GE micro model # ZE2160SF01.

Thanks for your help.

Perhaps someone has run into the same issues with this micro? a builder I know has installed 3 of these. They all seem to have the same problem: sensor error when cooking potatoes. A GE servicer has replaced the magnetron for some unknown reason. I have replaced the sensor (it's a cheap test). In both instances there has been no improvement. Do you think this is a control board? What test can I perform for certainty. I have tested the door switches and HV components also--everything was okay.

Thanks,

Ed

Hate to throw parts at it but based upon what has been done already,

Nothing else it could be but control or harness...

Thanks, since the sensor has a harness attached to it I suppose that narrows it down to the control. Am I doing something wrong to get the service manual?

These GE micros belong in a few homes built by someone I know. I know about GE's practices so I threw out all the GE appliances my home came with and bought Bosch with whom I am a authorized service tech. I have received GE manuals from you guys before, that is why I paid you for access to manuals. Are you telling me you are no longer honoring your apprenticeship program? Also, I have not received a service manual for an LG dryer DLE7177WM, I requested. Is that for the same reason?

Their model numbering doesn't make sense
