Resolved Question:

I have a GE Spacemaker XL1400
Model #: JVM1450BA 001

The control panel has suddenly stopped working. It works intermittenty, i.e. it might turn on, but not turn off. It also seems to start the oven spontaneously even if we haven't touched the panel. I have turned off the breaker for now to prevent that happening.

The oven is at least 12 years old. It was in the house when we moved in.

My question is: Should I consider repairing the oven? Or should I just bite the bullet an buy a new oven.

Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Based on what you're saying, you either have a bad touchpad or a bad control board, both parts are about $150 for the part alone so I might consider just buying a new microwave, but of course that's completely up to you.
