Question about GE Microwave Ovens
Our microwave is a GE Spacemaker, Model # JVM1540SN1SS and none of the buttons work. Sometimes 1-6 would work, and then they'd stop working. 7-9 seemed to always work....and now none of them do.
What could be the problem and is there anything we can do? This microwave is not even 2 years old!
The membrane keypad has failed.
The keypad itself is not available as a separate part, so the control panel frame with keypad would have to be replaced.
This is actually a pretty simple DIY job.
You can part number WB56X10826 from the Pros here for $114.62 plus shipping (that compares to $166.50 from GE!).
You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams at that link.
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.
Then disconnect your keypad strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.
Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
