Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a GE Space maker 2.0 model JVM2070SK02 that has three buttons on the lower right vent, boost and light. The light button is pushed up into the microwave. I think there must be a spring behind the button that holds them in place that now dislodged. How can I remove the panel to get access and fix this button?

Hi,
Remove the top grill and on top of the control panel is (1) screw, remove that and gently tap up the control panel to release the panel from the microwave front cabinet. Now as I researched this model, the buttons are part of the panel and are attached to the panel directly. Up may want to replace the microwave as the price is high to replace the panel. Part number is WB07X10972, Good Luck and be safe and unplug this unit before removing this panel.

SOURCE: Vent, Boost, Light buttons pushed in - not working

They may be available as a unit--two or more and will either be melted into place or secured with screws etc.

May not be a easy part to find or see if it is even sold as a part.

My GE model # JVM2070SK02 keypad is not working. The fan, lights and boost buttons are working and it is displaying but the keypad seems frozen. Unplugged it but it didn't do anything.


I hate to bear bad news, but this section of these controllers is not repairable. GE does not make separate parts available so you would have to order the whole control panel subassembly. It is part number WB07X10972 and you can get it for $473.20 plus shipping from the Pros here. Or you can get one from Mel-Co Parts on eBay for "only" $304.25 here. It's actually simple to replace that part yourself. You would remove the control panel assembly as shown in our video here, then remove your smart board and attach it to the new control panel subassembly. If GE will cover parts under warranty or because you contact GE Customer Service, that would be a big plus.

Problem with light,vent, and the boost


Depends on the model #. I dont see it on here. This unit may have some kind of button assy that has broken and fell back into control panel.

GE Profile Spacemaker 2.0 - black buttons on panel for vent, boost, and light broke . Any way to replace the buttons and take the panel off?


I had the same problem. The front plate is tabbed into place and removes with a flat tip screwdriver and prying in various spots to pop out the tabs. Once the front stainless plate comes off, you need to get behind the black buttons. There is a circuit board behind the buttons, which they make contact with. The problem with mine was the circuit board pushed beyond two metal tabs that keep it in place, so that the buttons were unable to make contact. I used a curved tool to pull the circuit board back forward in front of the tabs and into place. I put the front plate back on and it works like a champ.
