GE Spacesaver Microwave Oven JVM1640BB

I was trying to make tea one morning and pressed the beverage button once. Then the #3 for the serving size(which I never do). It stopped working. I unplugged it and reset the clock and all it will do if I am lucky is cook food when I hot the number buttons. Even then it sometimes stops working, or continues cooking after the time is done. The other thing that is different is the screen says "mute" and will not make any sounds. HELP! Any ideas?

    Thank you for your help! We did what you said and then replaced the ribbon, etc... When then turned it back on it. When I press the number 1 to cook, it starts cooking, goes crazy and shows all kinds of numbers, and gets stuck on the time 57 and just keeps running. Any ideas?

Unplug the unit and if you can open the housing and slowly remove the ribbon cable of the touchpad console to the main board. put it back after 5 minutes and try it. let me know what happen.

    i would say the keypad and the main board be replaced just to be sure. you would not know if its only the keypad or the main board. we normally replaced both at the same time.

My GE spacesaver microwave interior light is out. How do I change it?


The light is usually accessible when the oven cover is removed. Remove the cover after the oven has been unplugged for several hours. You will see the globe once the cover is off. Take care not to touch any other components in the oven and do not reconnect it till the cover is replaced and secure,

Keypad number buttons not working on ge spacesaver microwave - auto program buttoms work?


Very angry. Fairly new, little-used Spacesaver Microwave [3][Clock][Surface Light] buttons now do not work. We never even press [3], just [1] and [2] to warm sandwiches.
Unplugged for an hour. Still not working. Everything else works. We never use anything else. Bad solder joint in circuit board or keypad?
Thank you.

Sylvania p70d20al-d5 microwave keeps beeping


I have the same problem with my microwave, the clock disappears and it says "enter" and "amt", I figured out it's the "beverage" button that is sticking. When I want to use it I just press "beverage" and then "reset" and just press them over and over until it stops. Usually it's on the first try, sometimes I have to press them a few times. Just don't do what I'm about to type though, I decided to get my razor knife and cut the button out carefully, I only cut the contacts on each side of the button, now no buttons work, I should have left it the way it was, at least I could use it that way.
