Question about GE JVM1640 Microwave Oven
Patched burned out wire, but relay just clicks when
pushing the "light" button.
My answer assumes the wiring from the controller to the light sockets is all okay now and the sockets are fine.
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 in about a week.
At our site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
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.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
