Sadly, GE does not offer this as a separate part for this model.

You would have to replace the entire "control panel subassembly".

That's a simple enough job for a do-it-yourselfer, but the part price is astronomical.

GE sells this assembly for $435.00 GE, but you can get it for $376.33 (part # WB07X10858) from the Pros here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

The price of the assembly approaches the current retail price of the oven itself. You can find whole JVM2070 ovens on eBay for less.

If you decide to replace the assembly yourself, see my site for a video on disassembly.

Whether you replace the assembly or replace the oven, I would be interested in buying your old unit.

Once the control panel assembly is removed, all that is left is safe to recycle or dispose of.

Feel free to contact me directly if you'd like.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Hello. I just received a new Glass Touch ASM (WB27T10875) for my GE stove. My previous one cracked and needed to be replaced. Problem: While installing/ connecting the ASM to the stove, once I connect the...


Funniest thing. I was having the very same problem on Monday. Every time I laid the glass touch panel down on the stove, it stopped working but worked when I held it up. After failing to install the panel so it would work for 30 minutes, I walked away from it and ate dinner. Coming back later, I decided my problem was the connections on the back side were coming into contact with the metal so I placed a tightening knob in the center of each of the outside holes making sure the underside of the knob went exactly into the middle of the hole. I then lowered the left side of the panel down to where the threads started and very carefully partially tightened the left knob so none of the panel back touched the stove. I then lowered the right side until the knob touched the knob and tightened that side finger tight. I keep testing the buttons to make sure they were still working. When the out side knobs were finger tight, I finger tightened the 2 inside knobs. Success. My oven is now working.

Touch screen is lighted. No response to touch.


The touch pads are a common fault on microwave ovens they go out for a variety of reasons but mostly due to moisture getting inside the pad. These can be replaced pretty reasonable and are not that hard to do. You can google your make and model and find a touch pad or get one from your local parts supplier. Whn you replace it make sure you never use any liquid or spray on the front of the oven, it will slip through the cracks and ruin things. You might also take the unit aprt and look for a fuse, some models have them and others don't. If there is one it will be inside the door next to the touch pad.

Hello; Panasonic NN-H275 Over The Range Microwave - door stuck and cannot be opened. Thank you for your help. Regards, Vasily


Dear Vasilyk,
I feel your pain. I successfully repaired mine but don't know how long it will last (3 days now). Behind the touch pad there are two arms that the push button pivots on. The arm on the right was cracked where it attaches to the back of the touch pad. This allows the arm to move/give which shortens the amount of travel the button can make when you push it. After researching glues online I settled on hot glue to repair. I am hoping it holds up to the heat but from what I found out this is about the only glue that will stick to this type of plastic. I removed the back of the button and put a substantial amount of hot glue all around the base of the cracked arm and as far up the arm as possible. The arm is now stiff again and does not flex/give. I reassembled, and low and behold, it now works again. Like I said though, I don't know how long it will last and do not have a lot of faith in hot glue. I have called Panasonic numerous times to price the part but every time I call they give me a different part number with price varying $8-$40. To get the new arms I believe the entire touch pad has to be replaced. Also I could not figure out how to remove the actual button that you push without damaging it, which does not come with the touch pad. When I release it from the rear and try to push it out through the front it seeems to catch on a lip or something, did not want to damage it so gave up. The button does not need removes to repair but I think it will need removed to replace touchpad. Hope this helps.

BROKEN GLASS COVER UNDER NIGHT LIGHT


SAME PROBLEM FOR ME...I REMOVED THE BOTTOM COVER AND FOUND THAT ONE LIGHT WAS NOT FIXED AND WAS LOOSE AND WAS TOUCHING THE GLASS. THIS HEAT WAS WHAT BROKE THE GLASS COVER. CLOSED INSPECTION SHOWED THE LIGHT SOCKET WAS TOO LARGE FOR THE CLIPS AND WERE NOT SECURED WHEN PURCHASED. I GOT SMALL SCREW AND NUT, BENT CLIPS SO THE SOCKET HOLE MATCHED THE HOLE MADE BY THE CLIP AND SECURELY ATTACHED THE SOCKET. THIS WILL SECURE THE LIGHT AND KEEP IT FROM TOUCHING THE GLASS..........IF I CAN EVER FIND A GLASS REPLACEMENT....MAY JUST HAVE ONE CUT. NOW THE PROBLEM IS TO REPLACE THE LIGHT AND MICROWAVE FUSE WHICH WAS BLOWN WHEN THE GLASS BROKE.

Inner 'glass' of door


The inner glass can and should be replaced. It protects the metal mesh screen from getting dirty, which can cause it to be damaged and allow microwave leakage. You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
