Question about GE JVM1441 Microwave Oven
I have a GE JVM1440BD range hood microwave oven.
I was changing the range hood bulb (without unplugging, bad idea I know that now) and now I have no hood lights at all.
When I press the light button once I hear a beep but no relay click.
On the second press, I get a beep AND I hear the relay click.

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.

If your relay is bad and you want to replace it yourself, it is part # 3501-001050 and you can find helpful exploded view diagrams of your microwave and order that part here.
Be sure to also do any needed circuit board repair with 30AWG wire to prevent it from doing worse damage if another bulb shorts.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.
