Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
Is it easy to replace the LCD display on a GE Spacemaker microwave or does this require a service call. The display slowly started to fade and now it is totally dark. Thanks.
In most cases, these are VFD type not LCD type. In any case, when a VFD fades over time, that is aging.
Unfortunately, GE does not make the VFD displays available as a separate part, so the only option is to replace the entire "smart board". And they can be expensive at times. But if you do it yourself, you save a lot on labor.

There should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel.
