SOURCE: 5E (SE) error showing on

The "SE" error indicates a shorted membrane keypad.

You can find support from Samsung in India here.

That model number is not quite right. I'm going to assume it's JVM1740DMBB01.

(If that's not right, please check the tag inside the oven & reply back)

The membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame.

The part number you need is WB07X11040 and you can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order this part here for $107.00 (compared to $164.75 from GE!)

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.

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.

SOURCE: LG Microwave won't turn off

Our LG did the same thing - called customer service and they told us the open and slam the door 10 times. It actually worked! It reset the switches somehow.

I have GE JVM1540DN1BB microwawe. It beeps all the time and says "keypad sorted" and service needed. The beep sound is annoying and it beeps every 30 seconds


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Touchpad and Control Panel If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective
Touchpad If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
User Control and Display Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

Main Control Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

GE microwave :JVM1740DM1BB panel states locked, after unpluging it states short and will no longer work.


Notice that there are few physical barriers to protect the control panel from any cooking fumes from so the "short" could likely be due to some condensed vapors. In order to heat the control panel, tear it down and place the separate elements on the dryer rack for 20 minutes on high. Once it's done, re-assemble and re-install it into the microwave, plug the power cord back and wish for the best. It worked for me, hope it works for you...

GE microwave (jvm1740dm1bb) - Control panel how much for this part


GE part number WB07X11040. Several sources came up after a search for that number. Here's one site I do business with fairly often that has it listed. Here's another source with a lower price, but I don't have experience with them.

How do you replace the control panel on the JVM1740DM1BB my buttons no longer work(microwave oven)


You have a failing membrane keypad.

On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

It's 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 strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.

Some connectors have a lock:

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

The part number you need to to order is WB07X11040 and you can get it the Pros here for $143.31 plus shipping.

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

I plug in my microwave and it works for a few minutes then a error message reads key pad shorted the model number is jvm1740dm1bb


That is the worst microwave that you can buy. GE give you 1 year warranty, after that they send you a maintanence plan $50/month. They change mine 3 TIMES during the warranty period, after that works for 6 months and brake again. Always the problem was the KeyPad. The guy that they sent never told me a real reason for that, so I think is manufacturing defect. I put my GE JVM1740DM1BB to the trash.DO NOT BUY GE AGAIN
