Question about Microwave Ovens
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.:
