Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I have a GE Spacemaker microwave that is 8 years old but is in a cottage and only use 3 months a year. It worked fine until we returned this year and it was dead. However, after playing with the pad, it turned on and would cook on the 30 second mode. However that lasted only a few days. I have to call a repairman as I have no clue about the repairing the oven. My question is do you think it is a problem that can be repaired at a reasonable cost or should I go for a new one (so very costly). Thanks for any advice you may have. I sure do appreciate it.
It sounds like you may have either a defective keypad or control board.
Is the cottage kept heated in cold months?
Is there any rust on the microwave chassis underneath or on other appliances or surfaces inside the cottage?
This would be evidence that there is condensation settling on the controls or keypad of the oven.
We can normally repair a control panel assembly for $39.95 and if it needs a new keypad, that can add anywhere from $50-$100 to the total, depending on the part cost.
Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.
