Question about GE JE1540 Microwave Oven
I have a GE JE1540 turntable microwave oven. It seems some of the numbers on my keypad don't work but some do. I noticed on the parts list there is a "control panel" and a "keypad". How do I know which one has gone out? Also how do you replace the lamp in this oven? Do I have to remove the entire oven from the wall?
If some pads on the keypad are not working, then you have a failed keypad.
If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.
On this model, the cover will have to come off to replace the light bulb. If it's mounted in the wall, it will have to come down.
The installation instructions are nice to have in this case. You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
I have attached a drawing to show where the bulb is on this model. It is located on the right side of the oven next to the wall of the cooking cavity.
The bulbs are available in local grocery stores, hardware stores, and stores like Wal-Mart and Lowe's.
