Membrane keypads are not very durable, and do fail after a relatively short time.
The only method is to replace them as a spare part.

Direct spraying of
cleaners on the keypad and steam from the
cooktop can damage the controls.
I always recommend that you spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.
And I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.
If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.
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 here.
I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.
Otherwise, the keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may be damaged.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit) for a free estimate and free tips & do-it-yourself advice.
Your full model number would be one of these: JVM1540DM1BB JVM1540DM1CC JVM1540DM1WW JVM1540LM1CS JVM1540SM1SS

These units are known for this problem. You cook on stove and stream gets into keypad causing keypad not to respond anymore. The good news is keypad can be replaced, the bad news is it will happen again and the keypad costs around $125. GE will not admit to any problem, but I see this problem alot. You can get a new keypad at appliancepartspros.com
