The control panel is replaceable .. you can find a nice pictorial and parts at the url below ... sometimes the parts can be expensive but from this you can make a good "repair or replace" decision ..

How do I fix the key pad of a Kenmore microwave model 401.80084700?


I don't know of anyway to repair the keypad. Usually replacement (of the keypad/control console) is the only option. But you might want to remove the ribbon cable that connects the keypad to the control board behind it, clean it with a degreaser (like Fantastic or 409), dry it, and re-insert it, and then try again. (Remember to unplug the microwave oven first before you try that!)

The top quick access buttons stopped working 2 days ago. The bottom buttons still work but, we can't punch in a custom time. The only thing that will work is the 1 for 1 minute 2 for 2 minute...etc.


One of two things is happening, either you have broken connections in the membrane switches of the keypad and should replace the keypad(which is most likely) or your main control board has failed in a way that it can no longer read signals sent by the keypad.

Have model jvm1740sm1ss ...keypad has shorted ...cant seem to find parts for this model even on ge site


This should be the correct parts listing for the model number you have provided:

http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model.php?mn=JVM1740SMSS01&man=&mid=&brand=GEH&pmid=0


Here is another part listing which is a slight variation of your model. The part numbers are still the same, however:

http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model.php?mn=JVM1740SM2SS&man=&mid=&brand=GEH&pmid=0


I believe the model number should read "JVM1740SMSS01". If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

If these links do not work, go to pcappliancerepair.com.

GE microwave is unresponsive


I suspect the controller is a low-level microprocessor that may even have its own programmable chuck of memory on board to adapt to different models. Either the clock (for synchronizing the processor) is no longer running or the processor itself has failed.
I doubt if this board is considered repairable so figure on replacing it. It probably cost all of $5 to produce but likely in the upper two digits to buy.
Unfortunately, GE quality and that of their sources (they don't build much of it) has dropped drastically in the last decade.

Kenmore microwave - unresponsive keypad


Repaired the unresponsive keypad on my older Kenmore (model 721.68100): Unplug. Remove integral cover for top and sides which is held in place by 5 metal screws. The cover then slides toward the rear. Unplug two connectors to back of keypad and clean them (I used contact spray cleaner). Some of the components retain a charge even when unplugged.

Buttons #3 & 8 on control panel not working


Sounds like your keypad has failed and you need the fan circuit repaired on the control panel.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

Add to that about $75 for the keypad.

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

Start button on microwave does not work


Some numbers are missing off that model number. Would that be model 721.62622200?

(If not, please reply back with the correct model number off the tag)

If it's cooking with the programmed buttons, but Start is not working, it sounds like the keypad has failed.

The keypad for model number 721.62622200 is no longer available as a separate part.

So you'd have to buy the entire controller assembly, which includes the plastic frame, keypad, and circuit board, etc.

It is part # 4781W1M307A and it runs $110.10 at the Sears parts Web site.

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

Your membrane keypad has probably failed.

If you might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

It's at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/keypad_replacement.pdf

We have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

Essentially you unplug the oven from the wall outlet, and remove the control panel assembly as per the instructions at the site linked above.

(Remove the grille from across the top, remove the top screw in the control panel frame, then lift up & out).

There should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille.

Then unplug the keypad from the circuit board, heat up the keypad from the front with a hair dryer, then peel the old keypad off.

You have to make sure all the old adhesive is off or the new keypad will not stick.

I use paint thinner or mineral spirits, then follow up with isopropyl alcohol to be sure the panel face is squeaky clean and dry.

Then peel the backing paper from the new keypad and carefully press the new keypad in place.

You need to be precise - you cannot apply it, peel it off, then reapply it.

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

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
