SOURCE: touch pad doesn't work

ut the tech sheet did mention that intermittent F7 problems are usually caused by poor connections. So I pulled the ribbon connector off the control board and cleaned the copper connectors using a pink pencil eraser. That whupped that puppy! But then I went out on another service call, same oven, different house. The pink pencil eraser trick didn't work on this one so I had to apply some of that famous Samurai gray matter. To identify the problem on this one, I cut power to the range and disconnected the ribbon connector that connected the touch pad to the electronic range control (ERC) board. Then I re-applied power and let it sit that way for 24 hours after which the customer was instructed to call me and report on the error code status of the oven. If no error code was reported, I knew the touch pad was the problem. If, on the other hand, the F7 error code came back, then I knew the (ERC) was the culprit. In this case, the error code did not come back during the test period and, using my keen, Vulcan-like powers of deduction, concluded that the touch pad was defective. I replaced the touch pad and problem solved!

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

SOURCE: I have a 2003 GE Spacemaker model 2.0 (JVM2070WH001): the touch pad has stopped responding to any input. Can it be fixed?

Yes! but the whole keypad control or smart board will need to be replaced. I highly recommend a professional for this job and do a spot check on the rest of the unit.

SOURCE: GE model JVM2070SK02 touch pad not working

Most people, and GE will tell you these are not repairable and you must replace the whole unit for $300 - 500. I can fix them. If you are interested, let me know. em.ka.ventures@gmail.com I can only fix the touchpad not working and it must not be physically damaged. You must be able to take out the control panel and send it to me. It is easy (3 screws and electrical connectors).

Touchpad is not working


Hello :

If touch pad has gotten wet, then allow to dry for several days. Avoid spraying cleaning liquid near touch pad.
Check for insect infestation. Insects (cockroaches most frequently) will appear under clear surface of touch pad or under readout window; they like the warmth of the circuit boards.
Place window mesh over vent to keep insects out.

good luck .

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.

What does f3 mean in the window of a GE microwave


Code F3 is for 'shorted touch pad panel'.

However, this is not always the case.

Try the following;
Press (and hold) the Clear/Power button to reset the microwave and turned it off. Press it again to turn the microwave back on. set the clock. If the touch pach panel is okey, your microwave should work with no problem.

The clock works & counts down but the microwave won't heat


  • Disconnect the power for 30 seconds. After restoring power, do not set the clock.
  • If your model has an ON/OFF clock display, you can choose not to have the time displayed. To choose this option, press the 0 pad for about three seconds. To Turn the display back on, press the 0 again.





Touch the clock pad. Enter in the correct time of day by touching the numbers in sequence. Touch the clock pad again.

No numbered touch pad for use setting clock


I think on this one you press the CLOCK/TIMER pad, then enter the desired time using the 10 MINUTES, 1 MINUTE, AND 15 SECONDS pads then press CLOCK/TIMER again.

If that doesn;t work, press STOP / CLEAR then try the above again.

Let us know if it does not work.
