Buttons on control panel do not always work. Some work correctly, others not at all. Please advise solution


I have this oven, and had the same problem..only after a time it got worse..eventually all the buttons did not work. The problem is the keypad itself. It is very easy to change. Remove the 3 screws along the top of the oven. Then the vent pane will slide to the right. You will then see 1 screw holding the entire keypad assembly. Unscrew that, and the keypad will angle forward. There are 5 connections holding it..unhook all of them (you might need to, write on a piece of paper where they go)..BUT, you can try this first, reconnect the ribbon to the keypad by sliding the locking plastic up and then slide the ribbon out..then reinsert it back down as far as it will go. Push the locking plastic back down. Reverse the the screws back..and try it. If it works great, but it may not last. You can order just the keypad (here's the issue, it costs about $171) and replace it by removing the 4 screws holding the circuit board over it. The new pad just snaps into place, reattach the new ribbon. I think the problem is because the steam when cooking goes right to where the keypad is. My oven is over the range..so now I use the vent fan all the time..hope this helps. If you need better instructions..search YouTube with you GE model and the words replace keypad.

How do I fix the key pad of a Kenmore microwave model 401.80084700?


I don't know of anyway to repair the keypad. Usually replacement (of the keypad/control console) is the only option. But you might want to remove the ribbon cable that connects the keypad to the control board behind it, clean it with a degreaser (like Fantastic or 409), dry it, and re-insert it, and then try again. (Remember to unplug the microwave oven first before you try that!)

I have an Emerson 900W Microwave MW8999SB and it will randomly assign DEF1 and the rest of the keypad is difficult or not functioning. None of the quick buttons work, and only the 30-second button works....


Pressing the Clear/Pause button works. Sometimes. Most of the time, about a microsecond after pressing Clear/Pause, it goes right back to def1. Most of the time, pressing ANY button doesn't work. Usually takes me 10 to 20 tries to get anything to work. My microwave is about 3 months old. I will never buy Emerson again.

My mother mistakenly locked her samsung microwave. She can't figure out how to unlock it and she can't tell me what model it is. Can you help?


On a friend's Samsung (she didn't tell me her model number either), you lock the keypad by pressing "0" and then "2". Press the same sequence to unlock the pad. Maybe this will work on her model.

Keypad Problems


Sometimes a keypad may not work because the door switches are faulty. When the door switches are working correctly it will allow the keypad to operate. They tell the microwave that the door is closed and the unit is dafe to use.

Many models have 3 door switches, it's wise to get all 3 replaced at once.

Microwave keypad issue


You have a failed membrane keypad.

Most of the time, this is an economical fix. But shockingly, this keypad runs a whopping $110!

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 exploded views and order parts by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

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 repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.

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

GE Microwave Spacemaker oven, Model JVM240


That would almost certainly be a problem on the control circuit board. If the bulbs happen to short / blow out or if they are removed or installed while the microwave is still plugged in, there is often an arc which causes damage to the board. We repair regularly these boards for such problems for $32.50 nationwide.
