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 Spacesave microwave won't work. Display says REM. What does that mean?


"REM" is "reminder". That's covered in your owner's manual.

Here's a sample:

"The Reminder feature can
be used like an alarm clock
and can be used at any
time, even when the oven
is operating. The
Reminder time can be set
up to 24 hours later.
1 Press REMINDER.
2 Enter the time you want
the oven to remind you.
(Be sure the microwave
clock shows the correct
time of day.)
3 Select AM or PM.
4 Press REMINDER. When
Reminder signal occurs,
press REMINDER to turn
it off. The Reminder
time may be displayed by
pressing REMINDER.
NOTE: The REM indicator
will remain lit to show that
the Reminder is set. To
clear the Reminder before
it occurs, press
REMINDER, then 0. The
REM indicator will no
longer be lit."

Keypad number buttons not working on ge spacesaver microwave - auto program buttoms work?


Very angry. Fairly new, little-used Spacesaver Microwave [3][Clock][Surface Light] buttons now do not work. We never even press [3], just [1] and [2] to warm sandwiches.
Unplugged for an hour. Still not working. Everything else works. We never use anything else. Bad solder joint in circuit board or keypad?
Thank you.

Spacesaver powers off 2 seconds after resetting clock and time...


The clue is that you have to reset the clock. You are losing power somehow. the Main Board thinks it is being unplugged and it resets the clock and you have to start all over. The fact that after so many times it will finally work tells me that whatever bad connection you have is finally getting hot enough to expand and make a good enough connection to keep working. Intermittant connections are the worse to find. A lot of trial and error to find the problem. can be bad fuse and fuse holder ( in the unit), bad outlet, loose wire at circuit breaker, loose wire at outlet. Even a loose breaker where it snaps onto the buss bar in the Breaker Box. Etc, it an really drive you nuts trying to find it. Try the unit in a totally different area making sure it is on a compleately different circuit breaker and see what it does, if the problem follows the unit, the problems is in the unit. If not, electrical problems, outlet, breaker, panel,
