GE MICROWAVE, MODEL PVM2070SM1SS...

GE MICROWAVE, MODEL PVM2070SM1SS has stopped working. Menu simply says summary, creme cheese that's it

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

10 years. We remodeled the kitchen in 2007

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Only if I have too. hoping for a quick fix. I assume this is an electronics issue

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

What is wrong with it? :)

Unplug the unit for a full minute and plug it back in that should reset it and it should work, if not it would need a new main control board. Let me know what happens/

Hello, are you still there?

OK you need a new main control then, the main control is expensive so given the age I would honestly put the money into a new unit. I wish there was a simpler solution to fix this.
