    Hello, I have a GE JVM1860 that has two halogen bulbs underneath. The bright setting works both bulbs, however the nite light setting does not illuminate either bulb. The rest of the features function as normal.

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.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Replaced the bulbs underneath now they won`t turn off


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.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.
The problem is on the controller assembly, which I regularly repair. Details are here.

I also have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

I replaced the outside/night lights on my Kenmore microwave and the lights stay on. They are 3 settings, high, night and off and they do not cycle through, they are always on and won't shut off


This is a shorted relay on the control circuit board, which we normally repair for $39.95 nationwide.

When changing the lightbulb under the over the range microwave oven I heard a pop sound and now neither of the lights or the fan won't work but the microwave and the clock on it still works, it is just...


probably caused a short while replacing the bulb(s) and, causing damage to the circuit board. pull the board out and carefully check for burned foil traces; and rebridge with solder. it may or may not work. always unplug the microwave when replacing the range lamps.

You most likely have a blown fuse. The fuse is located inside the case at the top and likely to the left.

It is the control panel. You can actually just replace the circuit board on the control panel and it should fix this.
