Question about Kenmore 62622 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Down lights/night light not working

I have a Kenmore 62642200 that was purchased new in 2003. I've replaced the lights that shine over the stove in the past without a problem. However, recently even after replacing the bulbs they still won't turn on. A friend suggested it could be the fuse. I called & ordered one from Sears & have received it, but I cannot find any information on how to replace the fuse & where it is located. Can someone help, please?

I'll do my best w/out model#... remove 2 screws top of the air vent grill to remove grill.. remove 1 screw at top of touch pad.. you will see maybe 2 or 3 diff fuse area...thats how you get to the fuse for your question.. but I think the relay in your control for the light is bad. unforturnately you have to replace the whole board (in most over the range micro) good luck.. mike

I have a Kenmore microwave mounted above my stove. The light that lights my stove is blown and I can't find the right replacement bulb. It has two little prongs that should fit into the unders


Are these little spot lights? About the size of 1/2 dollar round and maybe 1.5 -2 inches long? 2 prongs about 1/2 inch apart? Take one of those lights and show it to a local hardware dealer like "Lowes". There are may types and some are 12V some are 110V. Thats why I suggest showing to the local hardware guy.

There is a possibility that the light relay is stuck on. Sometimes a sharp tap on the relay will fix it. If not the control board will need replacing.

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 with a one-year guarantee.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus 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.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

Covers over cooking/night lights are melting


I have a microwave above my stove also but it has not done what yours is doing. I would try a lower watt bulb since it would not give off as much heat. You may need to replace the lens or else just take it out and get rid of the problem altogether. You would have a brighter light anywas even if you kept the same bulb. Most of those bulbs are florescent and do not put out much heat anyway and seldom cause heat problems, esp. giving off enough heat to melt something.

Down lights/night light not working


It's not the fuse. If the fuse is blown, the oven will be totally dead with no display, etc.

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.

Sometimes this will also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
