The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

If it still won't work, you probably have a bad keypad.

Touchpad and Control Panel


If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective.
Touchpad


If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the dishwasher display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
User Control and Display Board


If the microwave buttons don't work the user control and display board are most likely defective and will need to be replaced. If some of the buttons work and some don't, it is more likely a touch pad problem and the touch pad will need to be replaced.
Main Control Board


If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced. If some of the buttons work the touch pad is likely the problem. If none of the buttons work the problem may be in the main control board.1_24_2013_5_54_53_pm.gif1_24_2013_5_55_10_pm.jpg

You haven't said how long you cut power for when you flipped the breaker. These things sometimes have heavy capacitors in them taht will take a time to discharge and allow everything to reset. Before you call a service tech, unplug the unit (or flip the breaker, whatever) and leave the unit disconnected for half an hour. This may just be all you need to do.

The buttons on the front stopped working, no display


It is still under warrantee if under a year. Contact your dealer who you bought it from-it should be repaired or replaced free of charge.

Hi cschnur,
     It seems that you might need to replace circuit board.
All the above mentioned conditions refers to a faulty circuit board. You might have blown few Ic's.
Take a voltmeter, check the continuity. If you are aware of the Ic's, replace them.
Unless, look for a tech, a used board ( On http;//www.ebay.com ) or purchase a new one.

Thanks for using Fixya.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You will need your model number, which will be something like JVM1840WH01, etc.

You may need a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so then try again.

Nothin works on my key pad


Here are lock / unlock schemes for three recent Sanyo models:

- Press and hold Stop/Cancel for 3 seconds
- Press and hold Stop/Reset for 3 seconds or so
- Press Stop/Clear five times

Hopefully one of those will work.

If none of these work for you, contact Sanyo Service Customer Service.

Microwave won't work; timer word stuck on screen


The problem is almost certainly on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.
