Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I have a GE Spacemaker microwave. I had several appliances going on one circuit and I turned the light on to the microwave. It tripped the breaker and shot the surface bulbs. I replaced the bulbs but they still do not work. Everything else on the microwave works including the exhaust fan. I was told it might be the circuit board but can't understand why the exhaust fan still works. Could it be the socket holder of the light bulbs? One seems a little brittle. Thanks.
The control circuits for the cooktop lights and the hood fan are spearate. The problem is indeed with the control unit. It's usually caused by either the filaments shorting when the lamp blows or by removing or installing the bulbs while the oven is still plugged into the power line. We regularly repair these nationwide for $32.50.
