The membrane switch unit is permanently fused to the front panel; you have to remove the entire front panel next to the door (not any part of the door). If you are having problems with some of the buttons, the problem is most likely at the ribbon cable connector on the circuit board. Is there an envelope with service information inside your oven? The GE wall-mount ovens I've worked on have this inside, and it includes step-by-step instructions for unplugging the cable and cleaning the contacts on its end. If you don't find that, post a comment to that effect, and I will type it up in response, or you can look for my answer to "only two and four buttons work.:

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

Ge microwave jvm1740 start and clear/off button not working


Sounds like a bad keypad. You will need the full model number off the microwave to look up the correct control panel part number. Sometimes these type of parts can be really expensive & it may make more sense to replace the microwave depending on the age and condition.

I have GE JVM1540DN1BB microwawe. It beeps all the time and says "keypad sorted" and service needed. The beep sound is annoying and it beeps every 30 seconds

Touchpad and Control Panel If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective
Touchpad If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
User Control and Display Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

Main Control Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

Control panel on GE Profile Spacemaker microwave not working


You are right the control panel is very expensive, you can try the filter to see if you can get it working, but I must admit a new microwave oven sounds appealing.

Ge profile microwave jvm1870sf02 buttons don't work do i need to change the control panel frame or Bkt c/panel


You will need to change the keypad along with the control board, because they are essentially of one piece. But the part will equal, if not more than a new microwave oven.

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 microwave oven does not have power to the panel.


HI, this will require the skilled hands of a qualified GE tech. the damaged part here is the Magnetron assembly. this is a very sensitive part that creates radiation and the heating process as well. you will need to replace this device asap if possible.

1.Check power outlet for working.
2.If it is than you have broken fuse inside the m/w.
3. To change the fuse you have to disconnect the power to m/w, take the upper grill off, take the screw on top of control panel, lift the control panel up and removed. The 20 Am fuse located behind this panel.
