Question about Microwave Ovens
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 have a Kenmore model 721.80414(500) and the cooktop lights stopped working. Everything else works fine. I can't see any obvious wiring problems. Is it a fuse?
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.
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.
Sometimes this will also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
