I dont see that model in my list but that dosent it dosent exist.. first thing to do is unplug the unit!! Now dont be touching anything inside cause theres a capacitor inside that holds a nice charge.. Take off the cover and look at how the from assy comes out. There sholf be some screws holding the entire front panel in plase. If you think you've located them. slightly pull out on the panel and unplug the plugs and any single wires make sure you mark where they go. Get the board or the entire front panel and reverse instructions. Now its never a good idea for an hobbiest/handyman to mess around with a major appliance like a microwave,tv set or stove. if I were you I would contact http;//www.repairclinic.com and get there # and speak to them directly about this model Or best thing would be to take it into a repair shop to have repaired.. The only problem with replaceing the control panel is the cost ofd the part!! I found that even larger types of good microwaves are less the 200 bucks as some control panels can cost over 125 bucks. it your chice man. Good Luck

For your model the owner's manual is here, and it mentions that the oven would have to be disassembled to change the light bulb assembly.

See these safety warnings and disassembly instructions before proceeding.

The part number is WB36X10131 and you can get it from The Pros here for $14.11 (subject to change).
For more free DIY and other help & advice, feel free to contact me via my site.

Please include FULL model number*, FCC ID number*, + detailed symptom information.

Ge profile microwave jvm1870sf02 buttons don't work do i need to change the control panel frame or Bkt c/panel


You will need to change the keypad along with the control board, because they are essentially of one piece. But the part will equal, if not more than a new microwave oven.

How to change fuse on je2160sf02 ge microwave


There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Also at our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

I would also suspect the thermostat associated with your magnetron.

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

How do I unlock the control panel


If this is a GE Advantium series microwave, the control panel can be locked to prevent children from manipulating the controls. To lock or unlock, press and hold the CLEAR/OFF button for 5 seconds. These instructions are included on page 36 of the owner's manual listed here:

GE microwave will not come on. No light no control panel.


The door light is usually controlled by a relay on the control board, not just the door switch.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

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

Control Panel "clock Buttom" dead


Sounds like your keypad has failed, and on some models it's not available separately, so you have to buy the entire control panel assembly.

You have to remove the controller (see the video here) then unplug the keypad strip (see photo below) then move your circuit board to the new control panel assembly (part #
WB07X10798 if that's the right one for your model).

See exploded views
here. You can find this part for $101.91 here (compared to $163.50 from G.E.!).

Shorting Out


The control panel drops down (keep attached at the bottom).
Fold or cut the film to fit over the frame, and use regular scotch tape to attach it. Don't cover the little holes where the panel needs to be hooked back into. Cover as much as you can down to the group of wires on the bottom.

Hope this makes sense--not a very technical answer.

My microwave is working just fine.

F-3 means shorted touch panel pad. In order to attempt clearing the code yourself, please follow the steps below:

  1. Press CLEAR/OFF or CANCEL.
  2. Program control again.
  3. If the fault code appears again, disconnect power to the microwave for 30 seconds.
  4. Program the cooking function again.
  5. IF it comes back up you should change out the panel hope that helps, good luck
