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.

SOURCE: G.E. Spacesaver Microwave - Keypad Won't Work

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

You may have a problem with the keypad or the control unit (circuit board / smart board).

We repair these on a regular basis. Details and *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info is at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Please write back with more details if you need further help.

SOURCE: GE Microwave Keypad or Control Panel

If some pads on the keypad are not working, then you have a failed 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 usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

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

On this model, the cover will have to come off to replace the light bulb. If it's mounted in the wall, it will have to come down.

The installation instructions are nice to have in this case. You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

I have attached a drawing to show where the bulb is on this model. It is located on the right side of the oven next to the wall of the cooking cavity.

The bulbs are available in local grocery stores, hardware stores, and stores like Wal-Mart and Lowe's.

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

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

SOURCE: Microwave interior light

Very easy to replace...at least on my JVM1790. Remove the top vent....the long plastic thing that runs along the top of the MW. Two screws on top of the micro. Behind the charcola filter (if you installed one) is an access area to the bulb. remove one screw and the entire assy comes out. Simply R & R the bulb.

You almost certainly have a bad 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 helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

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.

SOURCE: It doesn't heat anything. Could putting metal in

This is usually caused by a "Blown" magnetron, and or the High power Diode And YES, putting metal inside the MW, will cause it to fail.
You need to get a "Quote" for any repair, as the repair may cost nearly as much, as new unit. Also the new unit will have a warranty.

Numbers 4,7,8,9,0 and Beverage on pad do not work. Others do work, do I have to replace the oven? (Spacesaver JVM1440WH04) Over stove oven installed in Feb 2007, in use 4 months each year. This problem...


No you can have the keypad replaced. It may be something as simple as a dis-lodged keypad ribbon connection where it mates to the control panel recepticle. If you look here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/modelsearch.aspx?model=JVM1440 there are several model numbers it seems you did not provide all of the numbers but the keypad is the same. The key panel here is $75.00 http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/modelsearch.aspx?model=JVM1440 Then you add a service call or shop charge your looking at well over a $100.00 repair. Your call on how to proceed. Good luck.
