The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If it's still out, the problem may be on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

SOURCE: I have a GE Profile Spacemaker Microwave Touch Pad does not work

Sadly, GE does not make individual parts available for these controllers, so they cannot be repaired.

You have to replace the control panel sub-assembly (part number WB07X10733 in your case) and the best price I've found on that is $370.32 here (compared to $483.25 direct from GE).

In my opinion, this does not do much to inspire brand loyalty...

Or you may be able to find a whole oven on eBay for about that or less.

Sorry to bear bad news. Good luck.

SOURCE: key pad does not work

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

If it still fails, I would say your membrane keypad has failed.

It all depends on the full model number, but on some, the keypads can be replaced separately, and on other models, it only comes with a new control panel frame.

Replacing this as an assembly is actually a pretty easy do it yourself job.

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.

Next, disconnect the keypad strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

You can get the control panel assembly here.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams at that link.

Just enter your full model number without any dashes.

If the keypad must be replaced on the existing frame, it's a much harder job. I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

We do that job for $39.95 pluspart cost and shipping.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more DIY help or a free estimate.

GE spacemaker HVM1540DNWW. After I cleaned touchscreen the buttons don't work anymore. i unplugged it for a while, still only get "press clock" message


Take a hair dryer in low / no heat setting or a plain old fan and let it blow on the keypad for a while. Do not let the key pad get overly warm. You got a bit of moisture in the pad membrane and the goal here is to evaporate the moisture. It may take longer than you think to evaporate the moisture. If you let the moisture stay in the membrane too long it will cause corrosion and the key pad will NOT be usable.

Ge spacemaker model # jvm16505ho1 won't stay running


I have the same problem. It was/is a wiring issue behind the key pad. I unplugged the microwave and took the vent and key pad covers off - heed all warnings. Using leather gloves and needle-noze pliers, I removed the wire ties and reposition the wires. I also checked the plastic connectors for looseness. It's currently working, but for how long who knows. Mine is 3+ years old. I will never by another GE product.

I suggest you don't tackle yourself as the capacitor can hold thousands of volts even w/ the unit unplugged. Be careful.

GE Spacemaker oven keeps flashing "message - hit button for messa


If you have an "options" pad, press that and you should be able to get to the message sub-menu. If not, you may have gotten too much moisture in the key pad when you cleaned it and it will either need to be replaced or might possibly return to normal after drying out completely for a few days
