How do I remove the keypad on JVM1540?

I need to remove the keypad on my GE JVM1540 Microwave, but I can't tell what screws, tabs, etc. are involved. Can anyone describe the steps to remove the keypad? I'd like to try cleaning out the connectors and stuff to fix a problem with the keypad (seems to be a short).

Remove the air grill first. Should be a couple of screws. Then you will see one screw holding the keypad in on top. Take it out and it will tilt forward. Make sure you unplug any power source first before you try removing any screws. Once you have the keypad leaning forward there will be some connectors holding the keypad in. Unplug those and lift the keypad up and out.

SOURCE: Cannot remove the front grill of GE Micro to replace filter

I have a new ge 1540 and needed to remove the grill to install the charcoal filter.

After removing the two screws on top, you need to slide the grill about 1/2" to the left. Then the grill will wiggle loose and can be removed.

If you mean the control panel, 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.

If you mean the door, you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.


Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

SOURCE: GE JVM1540 keypad only works for some buttons

Membrane keypads are not very durable, and do fail after a relatively short time.

The only method is to replace them as a spare part.

SOURCE: keypad not working after boiling water below

Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls.

I always recommend that you spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.

And I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.

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.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.


Otherwise, the keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may be damaged.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit) for a free estimate and free tips & do-it-yourself advice.

Your full model number would be one of these: JVM1540DM1BB JVM1540DM1CC JVM1540DM1WW JVM1540LM1CS JVM1540SM1SS

Touchpad doesn't work on ge model #jvm1540sn1ss


The membrane keypad has failed.

The keypad itself is not available as a separate part, so the control panel frame with keypad would have to be replaced.

This is actually a pretty simple DIY job.

You can part number WB56X10826 from the Pros here for $114.62 plus shipping (that compares to $166.50 from GE!).

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

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.

Then disconnect your keypad strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.

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

Touchpad isn't responding. GE JCM1540 the touchpad isn't working--stuck at "press clock"


I'm guessing that full model number would be JVM1540xx###?

But in any case, you have a failed membrane keypad.

On JVM1540 models, the membrane keypad the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel 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.
