Question about GE JVM1651 Microwave Oven
I changed the bulb in this microwave with out unplugging it, and I tripped a circuit breaker. Since putting the new bulbs in, the lights do not work. My fan now does not work. The microwave works fine, except for the lights and fan. The control panel seems fine, because when I press the fan or light buttons they are acknowledged. When I hit the fan button it says high, low or off but the fan doesn't go on. The same for the range light. Perhaps there is some common part that fried out. I am thinking a relay, or something along those lines. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Does my microwave have a light on the inside and if so where.

This is a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $32.50. This is inded caused by not disconnecting the microwave from the power line when removing or installing a bulb.

Sorry a bad controller printed circuit board or what GE calls a smart board. I have seen these smart boards as low as 85 bucks, go up to a price of 179.00!

We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide 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.
