GE Spacemaker Microwave, Model #JVM1540SN1SS, buttons don't work

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.

I have a GE Spacemaker JVM1540SN1SS. It stopped working without any warning: no light or clock or anything. Just dead weight. Any ideas?


It indicates the main fuse in the microwave oven has opened, probably one of the main parts have failed, possible causes, magnetron, inverter board, and the keypad control board.

I have a microwave model HVM1540DN1WW - manufactured Jan 08 and suddenly none of the buttons work. This seems to be a common complaint as I've discovered in my research trying to find a way to fix this....


Hello,

There is a child lock on this micro wave. If you do not have the manual it can be downloaded from the following site:-

Touch sreen won't work


I would suspect it either needs a hard reset (unplugging it for a few minutes, then trying again) or the membrane keypad is failing.

Instead of JMV1540BMC01, it would probably be one of these models:

JVM1540DM1BB
JVM1540DM1CC
JVM1540DM1WW
JVM1540DM2BB
JVM1540DM2CC
JVM1540DM2WW
JVM1540DN1BB
JVM1540DN1CC
JVM1540DN1WW
JVM1540DN2BB
JVM1540DN2CC
JVM1540DN2WW
JVM1540LM1CS
JVM1540LM2CS
JVM1540LN1CS
JVM1540LN2CS
JVM1540SM1SS
JVM1540SM2SS
JVM1540SN1SS
JVM1540SN2SS

My Ge SpaceMaker XL1800 Microwave Oven won't power on any more.


1.Check power outlet for working.
2.If it is than you have broken fuse inside the m/w.
3. To change the fuse you have to disconnect the power to m/w, take the upper grill off, take the screw on top of control panel, lift the control panel up and removed. The 20 Am fuse located behind this panel.
