Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I have GE Microwave over the counter microwave oven.
Today, when I pressed TimeCook button it defaulted to Defrost option.
The Defrost button next to it does the same function.
Normal operating conditions when TimeCook is pressed one can enter the time for microwaving (and not defrosting). Now it only defrosts the food.
I unplugged the microwave and plugged it back in but with same result.
It sounds like your keypad (membrane switch) is failing.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting. You can use it to test for a bad keypad.
