I have the GE microwave, Model no. jvm2070sk02 Serial no. GL 900861 B. The problem is that the screen panel is stalled- the time is illuminated and the vent/light/boost work but nothing on the touch pad works and therefore I can not use the microwave.

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.

GE, Model# PVM2070SM1SS microwave - touch panel does not respond

GE has a special program, and your microwave is very likely a part of this program. Please contact GE consumer relations asap at 800-386-1215, at the prompt press 5. Our same microwave model has that problem. GE is replacing the entire microwave free of charge.

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).

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.

GE, Model # PVM2070SM1SS control panel is out. Can they be repaired. Replacement is more than the cost of the oven.

Yes they can depending on the type of fault. If you have some electronics skills you use the instructions at this link to assist you:
Microwave Repair Manual
If this is beyond your skills/time available to tackle, you can certainly call a local repair shop and ask if they will take a look at it then provide you with an estimate/quote for repair.
You are sure that it is the control panel and not another problem (main fuse, interlocks, etc...)?

Have a GE Profile Micro, model# jvm2070sk02, serial 3 tl901189b. Error message F5 Humidity sensor not working. No manual

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


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.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts (such as a new humidity sensor / gas sensor) by entering your full model number
