Question about GE PVM2070SMSS Microwave Oven

Open Question

Calibration for touch screen is off ge 2070

We just bought a new home and this microwave is in the home. I have no manual and am now having problems with this microwave. The touch screen worked a month ago but yesterday we go in home and we had lost power so we had to reset clocks. We have been keeping the home a little colder (not living in it yet) around 52' and thought the screen was too cold to respond. Go it warmed up and now you can access everything on the touch screen but calibration is off, you have to press the button above the actual one you want to get what you want. Any help would be appreciated. Also the under lights do not work, where can I buy them or can anyone tell me what the bulb is I need. I am finding a lot of problems with this microwave on the internet but not a lot of information. :)

SOURCE: Some buttons work, some don't.

The keypad may be bad. Most often they go bad due to moisture from cleaners being sprayed directly on them or steam from the cooktop when the vent fan is not used.

They can also go bad when the unit is stored in an unheated environment where there's a lot of air temperature change (hot during the day, cold at night, etc.)

It may also be some residue on the connections where the keypad plugs into the control board. Unplugging then replugging the keypad can sometimes clean them.

In other cases, a new keypad is needed.

SOURCE: GE JVM2070 issue

The same thing just happened to us..... there is no fuse on the microwave but we check our fuse box and tried another plug and it still did not work. GE sent us a new smartboard and now I trying to figure out how to get the thing apart.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

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.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

SOURCE: Touch sreen won't work

I would suspect it either needs a hard reset (unplugging it for a few minutes, then trying again) or the membrane keypad is failing.

Instead of JMV1540BMC01, it would probably be one of these models:

JVM1540DM1BB
JVM1540DM1CC
JVM1540DM1WW
JVM1540DM2BB
JVM1540DM2CC
JVM1540DM2WW
JVM1540DN1BB
JVM1540DN1CC
JVM1540DN1WW
JVM1540DN2BB
JVM1540DN2CC
JVM1540DN2WW
JVM1540LM1CS
JVM1540LM2CS
JVM1540LN1CS
JVM1540LN2CS
JVM1540SM1SS
JVM1540SM2SS
JVM1540SN1SS
JVM1540SN2SS

Service manual jvm 2070 microwave


First of all if you're having problems with the touch screen, display, or keypad on these models, separate parts are not available, and you'd have to order the entire control panel assembly, which runs a few hundred to several hundred dollars, depending on the exact model.

Luckily, problems with the cooktop lights or fan can be remedied by ordering a new smart board or having it repaired.

That said, the closest I have come to a service manual for these is the technical manual here.

MICROWAVE DOESN'T GO ROUND HEAT UP OR MAKE ANY NOISE LETTING ME KNOW IT;S WORKING


I'm assuming it's JVM2070SKC02?

No matter, because sadly on the 2070-series ovens, GE does not make repair documents or separate controller parts available.

So you would have to order a whole new control panel assembly at a cost of several hundred dollars.

It looks like yours is a Canadian model, and if so I would have no idea where to get the parts.

Maybe GE Customer Support can help you if it's under warranty or close. Consult your owner's manual.

I have a GE Profile Spacemaker PVM 2070 SMSS and the button pad needs to be replaced for the vent and lights. Can this part be purchased?


Sadly on the 2070-series models, GE does not make separate parts available for the controller.

Only the control panel subassembly is available, and these range from a few hundred to several hundred dollars, depending on your full model number.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

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.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Touch control failed on GE Spacemaker Microwave HVM1540


If you want to order a touch pad, (it has the micro computer built in it!) and fix it that way, you'll still have a 2-3 year old machine.
I would say it would be quicker and cheaper to buy a new one.

Bought a GE Spacemaker microwave when it is on


First, check your owner's manual. It should address interference issues.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here if needed.

Also check with Direct TV customer service to see what they recommend.

Microwaves manufactured after a specific date are required by the FCC to have a noise filter built in.

You can contact GE customer service to see if yours has one.
GE Customer Service is here.

If not, you may be stuck unless the dealer will let you exchange it for a newer model.
