SOURCE: How do i replace the keypad of GE Profile over the range microwave

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

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting. It will help you test the keypad with your meter.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

If you'd rather have us fix it for you, we do that for $39.95 plus parts.

DISCONNECTING THE KEYPAD

1. Be sure the oven is disconnected from the power line while you are taking it apart.

2. The keypad connection is the green or blue translucent plastic strip that plugs into a connector near the edge of the board.

3. There are two tiny tabs (one on each side) of the connector that you can gently pull up on to unlock the connector.

4. Then the keypad strip will lift out. Clean both sides of the end of the strip with alcohol-based cleaner if you like, but do not use ammonia-based cleaner. Dry the end of the strip. (A pencil eraser is better and safer).

5. Put the keypad strip back in, making sure both sides are down fully.

6. While holding the strip down, push the connector back down to lock it.

7. Try the keys again with the door closed.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: GE Profile - Fuse blown. Replaced it. Hear click when start

Fuses usually blow for a reason, there is or was a short. I have a tip which may solved your problem at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4265491-replace_bad_magnetron It explains how to check all the components. If only your display is working you know the transformer is ok but your problem addresses a problem that you do not see very often. You may have a bad control panel and that is why the replacement fuse did not blow. Whatever was shorted is now open. If you follow my instructions in the tip and find no problems I would replace the control panel. http://www.repairclinic.com can supply the parts. Let me know if you need more help.

SOURCE: no display on microwave touchpad for ge Model JKP62G

The GE JKP62G Microwave / Oven combination has an internal fuse behind the control panel for the microwave. The oven will operate but the microwave will be totally dead (no light, no clock). Turn off the breaker for the oven at the fuse box (30 Amp double breaker). In order to replace the fuse you will have to open the door to the microwave, remove the two screws (Torx) from the front control panel (located on the left edge of the control panel), wiggle the panel to the left (there are two metal tabs that stick into the metal frame of the microwave on the right of the panel) and then tilt the panel down from the top. There is a metal bracket that holds the control panel to the microwave at the bottom (don't remove it). Look towards the top of the microwave inside the area behind the control panel and you will see a 15 Amp screw in fuse. Replace the fuse and that should fix your problem.

SOURCE: I have a GE Profile Spacemaker Microwave Touch Pad does not work

Sadly, GE does not make individual parts available for these controllers, so they cannot be repaired.

You have to replace the control panel sub-assembly (part number WB07X10733 in your case) and the best price I've found on that is $370.32 here (compared to $483.25 direct from GE).

In my opinion, this does not do much to inspire brand loyalty...

Or you may be able to find a whole oven on eBay for about that or less.

Sorry to bear bad news. Good luck.

Ge profile microwave oven touchpad not working


The touch pad is more than like the problem. This is common. Try removing the ribbon connector and reinserting it back in the receptacle. If this doesn't fix the problem then replace the touch pad.

Hello, I have a GE Spacemaker 2.0 (JVM2070SK) and with an electronic touch panel. The unit is 3 years old, the panel lights up with all the options however, when you touch the screen nothing happens. Then...


This is a common problem, and they're often intermittent.

You'll need a new touch screen.

GE Profile Microwave Oven with an F1 error code


F 11 code. it is a touch pad error.
If you just cleaned the control panel it may have water in the panel causing a key to stick.
If after a day or 2 it hasn't dried out - then you will need to replace the touch pad.

Our GE Profile started beeping and flashing f 3. None of the buttons will work now.


This code will occur if a shorted key panel is detected continuously over 60 seconds. Replace key panel (also called touch pad). Once the key panel is replaced, the issue will be solved.
