Beware of this place, microwavedisplay.com. Of late, some are seeing very long turn around times. They don't respond to emails or answer the phone. See http://www.whoila.com/blog/?p=725 for some recent experiences.

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 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.

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.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

    I DO NOT RECOMMEND MicrowaveDisplay.com and William Miller! Promises 2-3 week turnaround, instead takes months and months and months. Cashes check immediately though. Doesn't respond to e-mails or calls. Thief and fraud at worst, liar and horrible business manager at best. STAY AWAY!!

sounds like a cross wire, and a short. I'd inspect the socket for the bulbs to ensure that there's no short circuit.

Mbbs 01 thermador micro oven: timer counts down, lights go on, but no heat, no fan and turntable does not turn. is it a fuse?


Key clue is table does not move---All microwaves with a table have a lever switch that is engaged when door closes--only can get at from inside the unit----it prevents the unit from operation if door not closed.

What happens from closing door a lot is the switch with a lever arm can come loose or even if snapped into a plastic holder break out of the holder.

IF this it is not too expensive a repair.

How do i change the bulbs on a jvm1870sk03 microwave


That's covered on pages 35 & 36 of the owner's manual here.

Cooktop Light/Night Light

On models JVM1850, JNM1851, DVM1850 and
EMO4000, replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt,
40-watt incandescent bulb (WB36X10003), available
from your GE supplier.

On models JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM2050 and
JVM3670, replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt,
20-watt halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from
your GE supplier.

To replace the bulb(s), first disconnect the
power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel
or pull the plug. *

Remove the screw at the left edge of the light
cover and push on the right edge of the cover
to open.

Be sure the bulb(s) to be replaced are cool
before removing. After breaking the adhesive
seal, remove the bulb by either gently turning
(for models JVM1850, JNM1851, DVM1850 and
EMO4000) or pulling straight out (for models
JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM2050 and JVM3670).

Replace with the same size and type bulb.

Raise the light shield and replace the screw.
Connect electrical power to the oven.

Oven Light

Replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt, 20-watt
halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from your
GE supplier.

To replace the oven light, first disconnect the
power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel
or pull the plug.

Remove the top grille by taking out the screws
on top of the grille that hold it in place and
sliding the grille to the left (opening the door
makes grille removal easier).

Next, remove the light cover.

On some models, the light cover is located
in the center of the top opening. Remove the
screw that secures the light cover and lift the
cover off.

On some models, the light cover is located at the
left of the top opening. Lift the cover off.

Pinch the clips that hold the light socket in
place and lift the socket out.

Remove the bulb from the light socket by
pulling straight out. Replace with the same size
and type bulb, then replace the light socket and
cover.

Replace the grille and screws. Connect electrical
power to the oven.

* If your control board was damaged (lights won't come on, won't go off, fan or turntable not working right) after a cooktop light bulb blew or was inserted or removed while power was on, see here.

Panasonic Microwave NN-S935BF turntable and light do not work. Microwave still works. Bulb and turntable motor okay. No power to light or turntable. Any ideas?


Your description seems to be confusing turntable and light do not work
Bulb and motor OK
No power to light or turntable

Which is it?

They could be separate incidents. The drive motor could be fused and the globe just blew its life away..

Lights up counts down and thats it no fan no spin no heating


I believe that there are to fuses inside this unit. One feeds the electronic components and the other feeds the turntable and the magnitron. Un plug the unit and check both fuses, you might get away with this cheaply. Please let me know if this helps. P.S. if one of the fuses continues to blow its time to get rid of the unit, because if they go bad they get stronger and very dangerous. What normally would boil water at 3 minutes could change to 45 seconds. Be careful.

Turntable, lights and fan inop


I'm guessing that nothing is working...is that right? If so, first guess is the breaker or an internal fuse. Nearly all units have them. You don't say what fuse you checked. Unplug the unit, remove the bulb and see what is in the socket. Next, open the breaker and then turn it back on. This will reset it. Something caused this.

Flash and Bang on Closing Door


Since you know that the bulb is blown that needs replaced. I would go ahead and replace the bulb and see if it works. I doubt that it will. If not unplug the unit and remove the exterior case. Locate the secondary fuse and replace it with the same size and rating. Plug in and try but be prepared as it may do the same thing again. I am not sure what you mean by 'lay up' your unit. If it was not running (heating) it should not be the magnatron. Sounds like the bulb blew taking out the fuse which would cause the other problems you described following the flash. Good luck.
