The smart board (WB27X5239) seems to floating around, but this does not appear to contain either of the 2 buttons or switches as part of it's assembly. Pleazer Appliance..

Changed the light bulbs in my ge jvm315 and know the surface light will not turn off ?

This sounds like the control board also called a smart board in some models has to be replaced.

My GE Spacemaker microwave - control buttons seem confused. When I press one of the buttons, either nothing happens or it goes to the wrong screen. What is up?

On the JVM2070- and PVM2070-series microwaves, GE does not make service information or separate parts available.

So when you have an error with the controller that does not involve the smart board (and this error does not) then you have to order the control panel subassembly, which on your model (PVM2070SM1SS) is part number WB07X11143 and you can get it from the Pros here for $477.83 (subject to change).

It's very expensive but 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.

Some connectors on the relays have a lock:


If it's under warranty or GE Customer Service would give you a break on the the part cost, that would be a big plus for you.

I have a 2003 GE Spacemaker model 2.0 (JVM2070WH001): the touch pad has stopped responding to any input. Can it be fixed?

Yes! but the whole keypad control or smart board will need to be replaced. I highly recommend a professional for this job and do a spot check on the rest of the unit.

Our Spacemaker XL Microwave oven is on and runs ,but does not hea

Usually when a microwave is on and runs but does not heat there is a substantial humming associated with the symptom. If you do not have that tell tale hum you have a control problem with the relay that provides power to the magnetron.

It is most likely the Smart board Item 12

BUT the Capacitor, the diode, the 3 thermostats and the magnetron all need to be ruled out as possible failures before changing the Smart Board.

See link below:

Cap = Item 49
Doide = Item 50
3 Thermostats = Items 110 (2ea) and 115
Magnetron = Item 73

It will take a meter and some resistance readings to isolate the thermostats, diode and capacitor.

The thermostats should read continuity

The diode should read continuity in one direction

The capacitor must be shorted several times to avoid ruining your day and possible injury.
The capacitor should make an ANALOG meter jump each time the leads are reversed.

This should give you an idea what to expect for repairs.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Miocrowave is not heating, item stays cold

hello. I can help you.

When the microwave sounds okay, but there's no heat, one of the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board may have a problem. To resolve this problem, you need the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

GE profile microwave

Most likely problem is your Smart card has fried.Its located on the removable panel that your display is attached to.If you remove the screws that open this Clock Panel (un plugged from power first) the display panel will swing down and you will see the circuit board I mention (Smart card/control board ).Look for a visible burn on this board.If you see one ,replace the board.

LCD not working

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.

If you or someone you know decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here:

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

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
