I always suggest that the hood / exhaust fan be on whenever you're cooking on the stove top. This helps keep grease and steam out of the controls.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

Otherwise, you may have a bad controller, which we may be able to repair for you.

Micro won't work after boiling water under it all day


I am not sure what you mean by boiling water under it all day. If it was under the unit, it probably shorted it out and it won't work. If you were using it constantly to boil water, you may have overheated it. To be safe, please unplug it and call the manufacturer.

Shows a 5E error code. Can you help?


SE means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

Actually the best overall solution to this problem is usually to order a new controller assembly (control box) and install it yourself. It's pretty simple.

We have a similar service manual and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

Your part numbers may be different, so you can find helpful exploded views by entering your actual full model number at the Sears parts direct Web site here.

At Web site , they have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

The microwave quit working. I could still use the timer and the fan. After a year, I had a pot of water boiling on the right back burner of my cook top and the microwave exhaust fan came on. I could not...


I think a bad connection in a lucar styl plug is the problem.
Check all of the connectors that come from the switch/control pannel and the magnetron's transformer.
Make certain that it is not still charged up at a lot of voltage in the capacitor is lethal!!!!

Keypad not working after boiling water below


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

I Have a GE Micro JVM2070. When I boil water on the stove the water vapor shorts out the Micro. It then turns it self on or doesn't work at all. If I unplug it it might work in a few days.


One would think that you would have the sense to use the extractor that is above your stove and under your microwave, would you use a laptop in a sauna!!! no wonder the thing is shorting out. Contact the person who fitted the microwave. always use the extractor when you boil things on the hob.
I live in England it is illegal to have a microwave above a hob for this exact reason. America will catch up eventually with building regulations!!

Boiled water and it exploded, now the microwave is broken


wow, from the looks of it you need to unplug wait 60 seconds plug in to restart, ot buy a new microwave. Perhaps if in the microwave terms it didn't say not to do that call the manufacturer and the will replace it for free

Whenever anyone uses the stovetop to boil water, the steam seems to affect the microwave and causes it to turn on by itself and the panel buttons will not work


did it come with the exhaust fan under it? if so just turn it on when boiling water if it didn't try to find one that goes with the unit and hve it installed, this is theonly way to fix the problem

Can i use water boiled from microware to make formula milk for a baby that is 1yr old


I wouldn't recommend to use the microwave to boil water. Here you can read the reason why: http://www.snopes.com/science/microwave.asp

Water can 'explode' when heated in a microwave under certain conditions. Best way to boil water should either be using a water boiler or an old-fashioned kettle.
