Question about GE JVM2070 Microwave Oven
The buttons to turn the light and fan on/off have pushed back into the unit. How do I get the cover off so that I can reposition them? I can see through a crack behind the cover. I see a pc board moving. It appears to have detached itself from it's position. I don't see any screws holding the cover on. This cover is directly below the display area on the front of the microwave.
I had the same problem with the three buttons pushed in. Here's how I fixed it:
1. turned off power at breaker or pulled plug 2. Unscrewed two screws on top of unit 3. Removed exhaust vent cover/grill by sliding it to the left and out 4. Unscrewed single screw above LCD control panel 5. Removed control panel assembly by sliding it up and out and rested it on a box so wires wouldn't pull out 6. The control board behind the three buttons had dislodged from the clips 7. Secured the control board with the clips and added a little superglue to clips and extra foam padding to keep it from moving. 8. Screwed the control panel back in, powered up, and tested 9. Reattached the exhaust vent and screwed it back in

Be sure to either turn off the breaker or unplug the oven from power first. On most over-the-range microwaves, the grille or louver across the top is removed first. It may have clips and/or screws holding it on. Once the grill is off, there should be a screw or two holding the control panel frame on. Once that screw is removed, the control panel frame will either lift up and off or swing down for access to the innards.
