Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
The surface light dimmer stopped working after I replaced the bulbs. I just replaced them again with new bulbs specifically designed for the spacesaver and the dimmer is still not working. When I first replaced the bulbs I had a tough time removing one of them and wonder if damage to the socket could cause this problem.
We see (and repair) this
The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week.
At our Web 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.
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 full 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.
