Question about Kenmore 62622 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Kenmore over range microwave oven / no power at all

I changed the light bulb under the hood, without thinking to unplug unit first. Big mistake, it must have shorted the fuse because there was a pop and then micro went dead. Any help is much appreciated.

Unfortunately, there is a good chance that when the bulb shorted out, it damaged the control board. The only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. The relays for the fan and the lights are part of the board. The power should always be disconnected when these bulbs are replaced or the board will be damaged. We would have an appliance repair person take a look to see what the deal is with the microwave.

FGMV205K cover removal


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you want to know how to remove the cover on your Frigidaire microwave, model# FGMV205K. There are two different covers that you are able to remove for access to two different light bulbs.

If you are trying to change the Microwave Oven Light for inside your microwave:

    1)To replace light bulb, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.

    2)Remove the louver by removing the three Hood Louver Screws.

    3)Push in the upper tabs and pull the louver away from your appliance.

    4)Remove the light bulb and replace with a new 20 watt light bulb. DO NOT USE BULB LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

    5)Close the Oven Light Cover by carefully pushing into place. Push the louver back into place (engaging both the bottom and top tabs) and change to hood Louver Screws.


    If you are trying to change the light bulbs underneath your Microwave:

      1)To replace light bulbs, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.

      2)To open Light Cover, remove the screw on the light cover.

      3)Replace the light bulbs with new 20 watt light bulbs. DO NOT USE BULBS LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

      4)Close the Light Cover and secure with screw removed at step 2.

      If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please let me know the error codes displayed on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

      -Best Regards-

i think your bulb fused because you change it without unpluging and the current\
directly hit the filament.

you should buy new one and try it again and remenber that you shoul unplug it first.

Hood light does not work or vent hood fan


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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
