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.

Brenda, according to the GE website, that model is no longer available. They do have other models of similar size though. I have included a link to their website for that size microwave. Products from GE Appliances

    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.

    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.
