Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
I pushed the touch pad "on" to turn on the counter lights and got a spark out of the touch pad and now the lights don't work. Both bulbs looked fried so I replaced them but they still don't turn on. I hear a click when I push the touch pad "on" or "off". Are these lights fused? The microwave is 16 years old.
We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which
we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.
This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.
This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
