Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I just feel stupid that i sprayed Windex and cleaned the Touchpad while M/W was plugged in. Now the touchpad or the Light and Vent bottons dont work. Only thing that works is the inside light.
I took apart the control board and it seems fine according to the tecj sheet i found inside. I also pealed off the touch pad and noticed a burn matk inside the LCD.
I can't figure out how to take apart the door to get to it so i can order and replace the part.
Any help would be appreciated.
Let me know if you need any details or pics and i can try to post.
Actually, that's a VFD display, not an LCD type, so the burn mark is normal. That mark is created when the tube is evacuated.
You wouldn't need to take apart the door just to replace the keypad.
That's something we do for $39.95 but if you might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.
