Question about GE HVM1750SMSS Microwave Oven
I have a ge microwave OTR model HVM1750SM1SS it was purchased 4/2009 and just started turning itself on. When it turns on you cant turn it off except to unplug it. I called GE and they told me it is out of warranty. I did some research and found this is a common problem in some of their models? Does anyone know if GE has a class action suit pending on this model? Also what could cause this?
There is a Web site dedicated to this issue. I am aware of a suit involving other older models.
You have a shorting membrane keypad.
If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.
So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.
That rule is even more important in this case.
On this model, 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.
It's actually a pretty easy do it yourself job.
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.
Next, disconnect the 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.
The part number to order is WB07X11056 and you can get it here for $130.51 plus shipping. (That compares to $189.75 direct form GE)
