Does any of the buttons work, have you tried rubbing your hand over the whole touchpad a couple times in a sweeping motion?
just did that....nothing works...help - off - home nothing works
you will have to replace the touchpad, the only other thing to try which it says you have is kill the power 5+ mins
You have a broken trace in the touchpad, I will need your full model number to walk you through replacement
just a sec
Man, their site is down for maintenance so I can't post any diagrams for you, but it's pretty straightforward
The cover comes off, just a few screws on the back and both sides
Then pull it off, once you have it off, the control panel comes off with 1 screw in the back and you lift it off
Wow ... your probably gonna be replacing the unit
The touchpad for it is WB07X10972 and the price is 422.54
That is ridiculous for a microwave, how expensive was this thing new?
If you need a place to order from I'm happy to provide but unless this was a 1000.00 microwave it probably doesn't make sense to fix
WOW! How special is that....I've unplugged the power again and I'll give it some time before plugging back in...maybe I'll get lucky, if not, I'll call GE for replacement unless you have a better idea. Yes, it was over $1000 it's 5 years old.
oh ok ... well if you have to order it,
You can order from Marcone by calling at 1-888-464-2853 or through Repairclinic.com whichever is easier for you. Both appear to have it in stock.
I would at least ASK them to cover the part
IF they don't give it to you free or offer a discount you can order from either above
At any rate you should be able to install it yourself, it's a pretty straightforward install, however it's not a cheap part

Good, I can't figure out how to remove the cover but I'll worry about that later once I've rechecked the power
