Re: Lights and Fan not working

Are you talking about the light and fan inside the microwave or the vent fan (in the grille) and the cooktop / stove top lights? Either can be economically repaired. Please clarify and I will give you more detailed information.

Samsung microwave oven Model # SMH9151S. Turntable not turning fan inside (not the exhaust fan) is not working either.

It may be a failed relay on the control board, which I repair affordably.

Kenmore Elite Microwave oven 63792 doesn't heat - all lights, turntable, fan, etc. work just fine.

Most likely it would be a bad magnetron since the light, turntable, and vent fan are running.

Light, fan and timer work but microwave does not

Microwaves are pretty much a non repair item. It will cost you more to fix than it would to replace.

It looks like the part of your computer board on microwave which responsible for controlling light and fan stop working. In this case you have to replace computer board.
