HOW DO I CHANGE OUT THE TOUCHPAD FOR JNM1731DPBB


I'd suggest you contact Matt Fadorsen at eM-Ka Ventures in Chesterland, Ohio. He just repaired my GE keypad on a Model JVM2070CH02 microwave (GE doesn't make just the membrane keypad available--you have to purchase the entire control panel ($548.00 through a local parts distributor). Matt's turnaround from the time I removed the keypad to the time I re-installed it was only 8 days--and it only cost me $100, which included the return shipping. I'm sold on Matt!

Daewoo KOR-6LOB microwave oven the keypad is frozen andthe display reads 0, then will change to AC1 and a couple minutes later AC2 what can I do to fix it


proceed with common sense tech. God bless you
Touchpad dead If you have a stuck key or non-responsive key, most of the time you will have to replace the keypad for this microwave oven repair. If your keypad is connected to your control board by a flat ribbon wire, try disconnecting it and clean the silver contacts with an ordinary pencil eraser. After cleaning, plug it back in and try it. If it doesn't fix it, replace the keypad unit. Some units actually have keypad tests to confirm your diagnosis of a bad key.If your keypad and control is the same unit, replace that unit. Another note, unlike stove/oven keypads and controls, most microwaves do not have error codes or tests to distinguish whether it is truely the keypad or control. Most of the time, it is the keypad that needs replacing, but a small percentage of the time it can be the control. Check the tech sheet if they can point you to the right part.

Microwave oven touch pad problem


The keypad very well could be worn from use and be working intermittently. Replacing the keypad (and the keypad face if it is a separate piece) is the most logical solution.

We are getting an F3 message on GE JVM1750DM microwave. After turning off power and then back on. It works for a few minutes, but then the F3 message come back ?


Hi

F3 error in your GE microwave means that the keypad/touchpad is bad and should be replaced. However, before replacing it you can follow these step by step instructions to clean the touchpad assembly and see if it works:

1) Unplug microwave
2) Remove two small screws from upper face plate
3) Remove screw on upper side of control panel
4) Life panel and pull out
5) Identify flat tape-like harness connecting circuit card to keypad
6) Wipe down harness with an all-purpose wipe
7) Use hairdryer to dry remaining leftover moisture

8) After this put the keypad back if its not solved then replace it.

Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I have the SE code on my Samsung microwave. I have replaced the touch pad but the code remains. Any further advice? What is the purpose of the second tail on the pad; not the one that goes into the plug...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
SE or 5E means shorted keypad and to solve this problem the keypad needs replacement, if it has already been replaced then it is better to replace the ribbon cable connecting the board. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Can I replace keypad for my PLMV168KC3 Frigidaire Microwave?


Is it a membrane type touchpad?

These are usually held in place with an adhesive. You can pull the old one off and stick the new one on. The complication usually involves the connection between the touchpad and the body of the microwave. This connection may or may not be easily accessible.
