Question about GE JVM1440 Microwave Oven
Other buttons on the pad work intermittently.
Is it possible that some
spray cleaner accidentally got into the controls?
Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls.
Always spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.
Always use the vent fan when cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls.
If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.
The keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may be damaged.
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.
