Normally it's called the key panel but it may be called control panel or membrane keypad, etc.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace a separately available keypad yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

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 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.

Does the ge spacesaver xl1400 microwave have to mounted or can it just sit on a counter?


Theoretically JVM1400-series microwaves (XL1400 is a meaningless number they put on the ovens) can be used on a counter top, but it's really not safe because it has no feet, and it may slide and fall off the counter.

Also, it will probably not set level on a counter.

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

If you need mounting hardware or other parts, you can get them by by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Hi, This is Mike. My GE spacesaver xl1400 is shutting off as if it has lost AC power seconds after hitting the start button. The last couple of times it reset itself and now its dead. (power source is ok)....


-thermal cutout
-fan/fan motor
-transformer
-capacitor/diode
-circuit board, triac or magnetron

any of these could be the culprit
any of these can be tested
let me know if you need further instructions

Fan runs continuously and will not turn off. Model is XL1400 and is 10 yrs old.


Yes, we would want the entire control panel assembly - the plastic frame, keypad and circuit board. When you send it, please note on the repair form about the broken tabs. We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Repair turntable for spacesaver XL1400


The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

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" (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.
