Hi-have a problem with display on GE Spacemaker 1800 XL, model

This answer was rated:

Hi-have a problem with display on GE Spacemaker 1800 XL, model #JVM1860WD001. My wife was cleaning the top using a sponge, and I think she may have got some water inside somewhere. The display was all lit up (I have a picture), then when hitting the clear button, the display goes blank, and the vent door cycles open and closed. Is this potentially a "water" issue that can "dry out", or do I need to replace the display?

Hello from JA
My name is Woody.
I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 33 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 50,000 phone and internet repairs under my belt.
This sounds just like a water issue ,unplug the unit let it dry out for say 12-18 hours plug it in and see if it works if not get back to me and I will be more then happy to assist you further.

But if water got down into the unit and no arching or sparking occured it should dry up and be fine
