Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Space maker XL1800: Model# JVM1851 WD002

We had a power outage other time and once power was restored I see Clock sign on the display and none of the keys are working. I tried the following things in vain:
- Connect/Reconnected the power cord but same Clock sign comes up and none of the keys work.

- Pressed the Clock key for a minute duration of time without any luck.

I will appreciate if I could receive some feedback to resolve the problem. Thanks.
Sunny

    HI,



    I am having the same issue. Please provide me the solution. I do not believe that it's related to number membrane issue. Please let me know if you have some setting or some thing is missing.



    Thanks

Your membrane keypad has probably failed.

If you might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

It's at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/keypad_replacement.pdf

We have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

Essentially you unplug the oven from the wall outlet, and remove the control panel assembly as per the instructions at the site linked above.

(Remove the grille from across the top, remove the top screw in the control panel frame, then lift up & out).

There should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille.

Then unplug the keypad from the circuit board, heat up the keypad from the front with a hair dryer, then peel the old keypad off.

You have to make sure all the old adhesive is off or the new keypad will not stick.

I use paint thinner or mineral spirits, then follow up with isopropyl alcohol to be sure the panel face is squeaky clean and dry.

Then peel the backing paper from the new keypad and carefully press the new keypad in place.

You need to be precise - you cannot apply it, peel it off, then reapply it.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    Our 2006 Samsung Microwave has suddenly ceased to heat anything. The clock works and the turn table goes around, but that's it. We had a couple of power outages just before this happened. Could it be...


    Hi,

    Press the "Off/Clear' button to cancel anything on the display, and reset the microwave. This is a soft reset and will simply get you out of any program you have started. Press it when the cooking complete reminder appears on the display.
    Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the GE microwave back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the microwave's memory. You will need to reset the time of day if you perform a hard reset.
    Reset the time of day. Press the "Clock" button, and turn the dial to set the hours. Press the dial to enter. Follow the same procedure for the minutes and a.m. or p.m. Press the "Start" button to start the clock.

    Operation manual is lost, how do I set the clock?


    The manual for the Magic Chef MCD1311ST Microwave can be downloaded in pdf format from the following site (follow the link then click the "Manuals" tab):
    http://www.mcappliance.com/mwodetailpage.aspx?ModelName=MCD1311ST

    If you don't have time to download, here's what the instructions state:

    SETTING THE CLOCK
    When the oven is first plugged in, the display will flash ":0" and a tone will sound. If the AC power ever goes off, the display shows ":0" when the power comes back on.

    1. Touch CLOCK pad.
    This is a 12 hour clock system.

    2. Touch CLOCK pad once more.
    This is a 24hour clock system.
    NOTE: This oven has multiple clock system. If you want 12 hour clock system, omit this step.

    3. Enter the correct time of day by touching the numbers in sequence.

    4. Touch CLOCK pad.
    The display stops blinking, and the colon start blinking. If you selected 12 hour clock system, this digital clock allows you to set from 1:00 to 12:59. If you selected 24 hour clock system, this digital clock allows you to set from 0:00 to 23:59.

    5. Touch STOP/CLEAR pad.

    NOTE: If you attempt to enter an incorrect time, the time will not be set and a error signal tone will sound. Touch the CLOCK pad and re-enter the time.

    The clock works & counts down but the microwave won't heat


    • Disconnect the power for 30 seconds. After restoring power, do not set the clock.
    • If your model has an ON/OFF clock display, you can choose not to have the time displayed. To choose this option, press the 0 pad for about three seconds. To Turn the display back on, press the 0 again.





    Touch the clock pad. Enter in the correct time of day by touching the numbers in sequence. Touch the clock pad again.

    The keypad does not work. The display screen says "Press -----k". I'm assuming it's telling me to press clock to set time. But none of the keys work when I press any. Earlier only the Start/Pause key...


    try powering down for 30 seconds. if that doesn't work the keypad is shorted or open. do not spray cleaner directly onto key pad when cleaning. it will short it out. rather spray cleaner onto a rag then wipe.
