Microwave ovens don't generally have reset buttons.

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 the keys still fail to respond, you have a bad keypad.

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.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

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 microwave jvm1740 start and clear/off button not working


Sounds like a bad keypad. You will need the full model number off the microwave to look up the correct control panel part number. Sometimes these type of parts can be really expensive & it may make more sense to replace the microwave depending on the age and condition.

Oven Control Panel "OFF" or ignitor is broken?


need model number and brand name,i've seen the power go out and when the power comes back on the power surge takes out the computer board or clock assy.but if she touched the panel she might have locked the board,on some models if you hold the clockbutton in for 5 seconds,some you hold the start button for 3 to 5 seconds or it has a lock button on it so if you send the model number i can check that for you,you can try unplugging it for like 15 minutes and see if that resets it or the power surge took out the board if it's not locked out

Forgot my childproof code now i cant use my microwave how can i get a new one


Many microwave CHILD LOCK features are activated / disabled by repeatedly pressing one of the function buttons or by holding it down for about 5 seconds.

Try pressing the STOP / CANCEL button 3 or 4 times in a row to see if you can the CHILD LOCK off.

If that doesn't work, also try holding down that button down for 5 seconds.

Try these same two procedures on some of the other buttons as well like the TIMER button, or the START button, or the CLOCK button.

Your best bet however would be to include the brand and model number with your question next time and then we will be able to locate the exact instructions for you.

I hope this was helpful.

Good luck and take care.

Joe.

I have a Shapr Microwave Convection model R-8880(W) T which is flashing after being stored for 3 months. It won't work, the timing light just keeps flashing on andoff 88-888. Does it have a reset...


Try pushing / stop reset first. The setting the time by pushing clock button .... punch in the time and push the clock button again. Just respond here if that does not work. 88-8888 is what you get after your first plug it in. Sometimes you will get PF if you unplug it and plug it back in. If that appears push stop / reset / clear. (Same button)

My emerson just quick working the timer is on but it isn't doing anything. I unplugged it thinking it may have reset but it didn't. How can I fix it?


I have a similar issue with this machine. For your problem, try this...Press and hold the STOP button for three seconds. This is intended to turn off the "Child Lock Out" function. On the other hand, you may find that buttons that do not work today will be fine in a few hours and different buttons will not work. It seems that every time I press a button, it's "pot-luck" if it will work or not.
The only way to repair it is mail it to California at your own expense and include a check for $15.00 for handeling. Target won't help and if you bought the extended plan it only kicks in after the emerson waranty runs out. If you buy this machine, buy another brand as well so you have one that works while this one is out being repaired.
