Viewing screen lights okay. None of the buttons function.


You probably either have a bad connection between the touch pad and the main circuit board, or a component failure on the main circuit board.

Whenever I come across something like this, I always check the door switches for proper operation. Some ovens will not program if they have a switch failure.

Unless it's a door switch, or something else that's inexpensive to fix, I would suggest buying a new oven. 17 years old is quite old. Even if not used much, some components will fail simply due to age.

Do you have a door handle for a ge model #jvm140h001,serial # DD921459S, MANUFACTURED in February ,1990?It works well and I would like to replace the broken handle.


I can't find a parts breakdown for that door anywhere, and I am using extensive resources. All that is shown is the complete door, which is no longer available. If the handle was available, it would be nearer $100.00 than $50.00. So, it's time for you to get creative. Are you a woodworker, can it be glued, spliced, splinted,...
Good luck.

Buttons including light, cook time, etc will work infrequently


Good news, even though the electronic controls (circuit boards) are different, the touch pads for the two units are the same. As far as the nomenclature behind the model numbers/letters, this information is rarely known or needed.

Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating.

Below are some applicable links for you for future reference.

MH6150XMT Turntable and Magnetron do not engage


Looking at the schematic from the mini-manual for this model, the problem should be the secondary (top) door interlock switch or its mount.

(Power-wise, the hood / cooling fan is further "upstream" from the turntable and high voltage section).

There should be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and / or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

Kenmore over the range Microwave


Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part
