You will find the key pad needs to be replaced. you will need to remove the outer case first then unplug the ribbon cable and unscrew the earth screw. Peel the front keypad off carefully then replace the same way with a new one.

Not likely it's the touch buttons wearing out you can buy the tocuh pad and replace it it's not that expensive, go to www.appliancepros.com and find your model and look at the parts list and find your part, they have a break down of the parts assembly.

Viewing screen lights okay. None of the buttons function.


You probably either have a bad connection between the touch pad and the main circuit board, or a component failure on the main circuit board.

Whenever I come across something like this, I always check the door switches for proper operation. Some ovens will not program if they have a switch failure.

Unless it's a door switch, or something else that's inexpensive to fix, I would suggest buying a new oven. 17 years old is quite old. Even if not used much, some components will fail simply due to age.

Touch Screen Not Working. Have cleaned the ribbon cable contacts and still the screen lights up showing the buttons but nothing on the touch pad works. If not the ribbon cable being dirty, I guess i


Most of the time the panel buttons stop working because grease gets between the outer panel and the contacts underneath. Disassemble the door and if you need to carefully peel back the outer panel, use some paper towels to remove the heavy grease, then using a Q-tip and some rubbing alcohol clean the back of the panel and the surface contacts on the board, then re-assemble.

I suddenly started having problems with some of the numbers on my touchpad not working on my microwave and wonder if there is a way that I can fix the problem?


If the touch pad is separate from the actual control board, you could just be looking at a bad connection between the two. If there's a ribbon cable from one to the other, it may attach to the circuit board via a connector on the circuit board. If so, you could try removing the cable from the connector, and re-inserting it. If there's no ribbon cable between the two, it is probably an electronics failure, and the entire circuit board/touch assembly would have to be replaced.

Buttons on microwave


testing every step and fix it. God bless you see the diagram attached

Microwave Buttons Don't Work
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 dishwasher 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 user control and display board are most likely defective and will need to be replaced. If some of the buttons work and some don't, it is more likely a touch pad problem and the touch pad 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. If some of the buttons work the touch pad is likely the problem. If none of the buttons work the problem may be in the main control board.1_24_2013_5_23_47_pm.gif1_24_2013_5_24_54_pm.jpg

GE jvm2070 microwave touch panel does not work, but the fan and under light still works?


The only thing you can do is re set the main board, unplug the unit fot a minimum of 1 hour then try it again, if not you main board is out (this is caused by replacing the light bulbs with out unplugging the micro most of the time) If it is not in warranty I would advise to replace rether than repair, you get an average of 7 years out of them these days. Good luck

The keypad circuit board must be replaced to start. Sometimes, the fault can also be on the main processor board.
