Question about GE JVM1850 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
I replaced the two 40 watt bulbs on the bottom of my JENN AIR
JMV8100AAB over counter microwave and still the new bulbs will not
light. I didn't unplug the microwave while replacing them. Do I need
to get my control panel repaired. When I press the light on and off
button on the control panel I hear the sounds, but it does not turn on
We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is indeed on the control panel, which
we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week.
At our site, we 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.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
