Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1540 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Have a GE Hood micro model # JVM1540DN1WW. Control panel doesn't work. Did hard reset buy cutting power. Probably bad smart board. Problem is this is the 2nd one I have had . These last only 2 years. GE should be ashamed of such a poor product. What an ecological problem, a trash nightmare. How do you get in to rplace the smart board.?

You have a failed membrane keypad.

On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

It is part number WB56X10824 and you can order it here for $124.12.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

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.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame. Be careful - the display is made of glass.

You probably have a shorted membrane keypad.

The problem can be intermittent, going away and coming back, but sooner or later it will be permanent.

On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad. attached

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

It is part number WB56X10824 and you can order it from the Pros here for $135.33 (subject to change).

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and other order parts by entering your full model number (JVM1540DN1WW) at that link, too.

My GE Spacemaker microwave - control buttons seem confused. When I press one of the buttons, either nothing happens or it goes to the wrong screen. What is up?


On the JVM2070- and PVM2070-series microwaves, GE does not make service information or separate parts available.

So when you have an error with the controller that does not involve the smart board (and this error does not) then you have to order the control panel subassembly, which on your model (PVM2070SM1SS) is part number WB07X11143 and you can get it from the Pros here for $477.83 (subject to change).

It's very expensive but it's actually simple to replace that part yourself.

You would remove the control panel assembly as shown in our video here, then remove your smart board and attach it to the new control panel subassembly.

If it's under warranty or GE Customer Service would give you a break on the the part cost, that would be a big plus for you.

The problem is more than likely in the microprocessor control board, sometimes a bad relay, or poor solder points.

Range lights on a over the range GE mirco wave won't work. The touch pad works and says the lights are on but no lights


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one year guarantee.

Or you can buy and install a new control circuit board (smart board) from the Pros here, our favorite supplier.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.

Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms.

My GE model # JVM2070SK02 keypad is not working. The fan, lights and boost buttons are working and it is displaying but the keypad seems frozen. Unplugged it but it didn't do anything.


I hate to bear bad news, but this section of these controllers is not repairable. GE does not make separate parts available so you would have to order the whole control panel subassembly. It is part number WB07X10972 and you can get it for $473.20 plus shipping from the Pros here. Or you can get one from Mel-Co Parts on eBay for "only" $304.25 here. It's actually simple to replace that part yourself. You would remove the control panel assembly as shown in our video here, then remove your smart board and attach it to the new control panel subassembly. If GE will cover parts under warranty or because you contact GE Customer Service, that would be a big plus.

Microwave shuts down


Hello ede10,
Based on your problem description, you probably have a bad control board and the cost to remove and replave it would be more than a new micro would cost so.. I would encourage you to consider replacing it...
Good Luck
