I have a GE Space maker 2.0 model JVM2070SK02 that has three buttons on the lower right vent, boost and light. The light button is pushed up into the microwave. I think there must be a spring behind the...

Remove the top grill and on top of the control panel is (1) screw, remove that and gently tap up the control panel to release the panel from the microwave front cabinet. Now as I researched this model, the buttons are part of the panel and are attached to the panel directly. Up may want to replace the microwave as the price is high to replace the panel. Part number is WB07X10972, Good Luck and be safe and unplug this unit before removing this panel.

Vent, Boost, Light buttons pushed in - not working

They may be available as a unit--two or more and will either be melted into place or secured with screws etc.

May not be a easy part to find or see if it is even sold as a part.

Control panel on GE Profile Spacemaker microwave not working

You are right the control panel is very expensive, you can try the filter to see if you can get it working, but I must admit a new microwave oven sounds appealing.

GE model JVM2070SK02 touch pad not working

Most people, and GE will tell you these are not repairable and you must replace the whole unit for $300 - 500. I can fix them. If you are interested, let me know. I can only fix the touchpad not working and it must not be physically damaged. You must be able to take out the control panel and send it to me. It is easy (3 screws and electrical connectors).

I have a GE Profile JVM2070sk02 Every thing works and lights up but touch pad will not take any input. Fan ,Boost and light work .


The GE problem is with the magnetron being to close to the computer. If your microwave will not take any input, you can follow these simple instructions to fix it.

needed things.

* Phillips screwdriver
* Foil
* Large ziplock baggie
* Tape

1. Unscrew the 2 screws in the top vent grill and remove it.

2. Unscrew the 1 screw above the computer keypad, then slide it up to unlock it and it will hinge down, revealing the computer circuit board behind the keypad.

3. Put a sheet of foil into the large ziplock bag and seal it up.

4. Then tape it to cover the whole circuit board in the back of the computer. You may have to let the wires stick out of the middle of your foil covering. The ziplock is to keep the metal foil from short circuiting anything on the computer, and the foil protects the circuit board from the small amount of leaking microwaves inside.

5. Lock the keypad back up and plugin the microwave to test it before screwing everything back together.

My GE model # JVM2070SK02 keypad is not working. The fan, lights and boost buttons are working and it is displaying but the keypad seems frozen. Unplugged it but it didn't do anything.

I hate to bear bad news, but this section of these controllers is not repairable. GE does not make separate parts available so you would have to order the whole control panel subassembly. It is part number WB07X10972 and you can get it for $473.20 plus shipping from the Pros here. Or you can get one from Mel-Co Parts on eBay for "only" $304.25 here. It's actually simple to replace that part yourself. You would remove the control panel assembly as shown in our video here, then remove your smart board and attach it to the new control panel subassembly. If GE will cover parts under warranty or because you contact GE Customer Service, that would be a big plus.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
