Benson Mathew says:

I have a GE profile microwave with some of the touchpad not working
—defrost, stop cancel button ect,,, I removed the front panel as shown
the video. I took photographs of the connections on the panel with my
iPhone, then unplugged each connection, one at a time, then plugged it back
to the board.

It appears that vibration from the fan as well as closing the microwave
door over time causes loose connection in the panel circuit, which causes
the touchpad to stop working. It works great now!! Saved $700 in repair
cost!! Remember to unplug the power cable before you start working on it!!

You may have roaches in. I went to replace one and roaches had destroyed

John Farrell says:

unfortunately it didn’t work for me. I completely unhooked the panel to
adjust the ribbon, twice but no luck. It was worth giving it a try.

Nope. Still screwed

I was glad to find your video because my touchpad is doing the EXACT same
problem you were talking about. I have tried and tried to push that ribbon
in. I even took it out and re -inserted it like one of the other commenters
mentioned….and still NOTHING. Frustrating. I am so SICK of DIGITAL
appliances. Whoever decided to put computers in appliances is an idiot.
Nothing lasts anymore. My dishwasher is only a couple years old and its
touchpad is going out. Washer: same story. Now the microwave!

ghattmd says:

You rock! I owe you money! It did work. Although the ribbon seemed in
tight, I loosened it and re-inserted.

HVM1540LP1CS. But this should work most model microwaves with touch panel

kitcat says:

This did not work for me. I tightened the ribbon and it did not work. I
disconnected the ribbon and reconnected it and it did not work. I
disconnected some of the other connectors and reconnected but it did not
work. Called GE consumer service. No help for my model number. So sad.
Thanks for info on how to take off the touch pad. It was worth giving it a
try. Any other suggestions?

sayaditi says:

This video was helpful… however in my case, I had to tighten the 2 white
clips sitting inside the main microwave area on a circular base.

jeahman316 says:

Draggon- your welcome

neo3298 says:

Ur the mannnn

jeahman316 says:

Kitkat- from the info I have found looks like this microwaves touch panel
goes out in about 4 years. There’s a couple of YouTube videos that complain
about it. Sorry I’m not able to help.
