You have a failed membrane keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.
You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs nationwide.

But please note that for some GE models, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame.
That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

Either way, we can let you know what your options and costs would be and send you other helpful info.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me
directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

GE Spacemaker JVM1450AA001 started beeping then said to enter the time, which I couldn't enter because none of the panel buttons work, and is now showing F3 code? Sounds like the touch pad pa


Yeah, I think you're right, sounds like a shorted touchpad to me. Can you fix it? I don't know. You will have to disconnect and re-connect quite a few cables and connectors from the control panel. If you've never done that kind of work before, then I would not recommend that you try; it would be all too easy to damage something (like pulling a wire out of a connector, or inserting it wrong.

Emerson microwave not working 900 watts


The Emerson MW8999SB 0.9 cu. ft. 900 watt Microwave Oven is relatively compact, and certainly inexpensive, but doesn't skimp on functionality. We were surprised at all the options you get with this little microwave. It's only 20 inches wide, 11.3 inches high and 16.1 inches deep yet. The interior can still accommodate a regular size dinner plate or small (10-inch-square or round) casserole. Plus, there are 10 power levels, eight one-touch function buttons, six Express Cook settings, timed and automatic defrost options, and a rotating glass turntable to circulate the food for more even cooking.

We were very pleased with the performance of the Emerson MW8999SB. It did a fine job heating water for tea, cooking a couple of baked potatoes, reheating leftovers and steaming fresh vegetables. Even the automatic defrost proved surprisingly efficient, letting you enter the weight of the item(s) to be defrosted (4-100 ounces) for easy operation. Chicken breasts were almost fully defrosted after one cycle. We needed to stop and separate the food pieces to finish the defrost cycle.

The unit is styled mainly in black but has stainless steel trim around the door and control panel. The smooth touchpad control panel is attractive and easy to wipe clean. We loved the one-touch Express Cook buttons, which let you activate the unit at 100 percent power for 1-6 minutes, by pressing the corresponding number pad. We also appreciated extra touches such as the Start/+30 sec. button, which can be used to start the oven or add an extra 30 seconds each time it is depressed.

It's hard to go wrong when the functions are so simple. The only tricky part was identifying certain codes used on the display screen. When changing the power level, for instance, PL10 is displayed on the screen. Pressing the button additional times lets you toggle through the different levels. Likewise, the Auto Cook settings may need to be pressed multiple times to obtain the correct weight or portion for the food being cooked.

We were amazed that a machine costing so little also offered two-stage cooking, which lets you start cooking (or defrosting) on one setting and finish on another. All in all, the Emerson MW8999SB is an excellent value.


Pros: Touchpad controls, eight one-touch function buttons, six Express Cook settings, two-stage coking option
Cons: Limited interior capacity can only accommodate dishes up to 10 inches, no sensor

Key Pad only works on some numbers. Others do not respond when pushed


Unplug the unit. Generally, remove the screws inside the door that hold on the faceplate. Inside, it will become rather obvious how to detach the keypad from the main circuit board. Note that some of the screws are longer than others. Carefully unplug the wire loom from the board. Note that these plugs have a small movable section. Flush to the board is lock...up is unlocked. Make sure when you push the loom in that the section is up...then push it down. By the way...before you buy a new part, unplug each connection related to the key panel and reinstall. It may just fix it.
