We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is not the keypad, but on the control panel (circuit board), which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full 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.

The top quick access buttons stopped working 2 days ago. The bottom buttons still work but, we can't punch in a custom time. The only thing that will work is the 1 for 1 minute 2 for 2 minute...etc.


One of two things is happening, either you have broken connections in the membrane switches of the keypad and should replace the keypad(which is most likely) or your main control board has failed in a way that it can no longer read signals sent by the keypad.

That would be a bad bottom door switch or its mount.

See the help file on door switches here.

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 model JVM5503 (1980): light and exhaust fan work, but touch pad does not respond to pressing buttons and therefore no functions can be initiated.


That would be a problem with your "touch control" but it is no longer available.

The oven will have to be replaced.

Sounds like it had a good run.
