It is obvious that you also blew out your fuse. It is easy enough to get to though if you will just take the cover off (just a few screws) and be sure the unit is unplugged. The fuse will be at the far backright as you look from the front. It is a ceramic fuse and not one that you can see through. Take it off and get the right replacement fuse. Home Depot or Lowes or electronic supply house and help you with that. Put the new one in and put everything back together and you should be back in business.

How to turn the oven light off on my Kenmore Elite Electric stove model790.


You should have either a shorted out door switch or a shorted out light switch on the control panel.
Removing either one and unplugging it should show you which one is the problem.
God bless your efforts.

Counter lights


Hello!

Please consider troubleshooting the circuit of the oven, some connection in it is shorted causing the breaker tripped off.

Hope this help.

I shorted out the counter lights on my frigidair microwave. The microwave works but not the lights. I've replaced the bulbs. What next?


The metal base may have fused together from electrical arcing when the old bulb was removed. The entire bulb receptacle (socket) will have to replaced. If you cannot do that yourself, the cost would be excessive. Just live without the light as long as the microwave gets the job done.

Non-working furfact light


It is common for the light circuit trace to blow out if the light bulbs shorted out when removed while energized. If the trace is good then there could be a bad light relay

Why do the light bulbs stay lit after I have replaced the bulbs?


If the bulbs were replaced with power on the oven, the the device supplying the power to the bulbs (possibly a triac) may have been shorted out.

Lg lmh2016st microwave shorted out after changing lightbulb now doesn't work


We see and repair this a lot. The problem is on the controller assembly.

There is a video here 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.

No power to oven after removing light bulb


Hello,
What happend is that when the bulb broke the filiments touched (shorted out) and caused the reset switch on the unit to set>>>you need to find the reset button on this unit, look at your service manual. Additionally on some units there is a fused link internally, that may have blown>>>>both are an easy fix, so dont throw it out.

Good luck,
Geodesy

GE Spacemaker XL1400 Microwave - Lights wont cut off


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.

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, due to a shorted relay.

Majic Chef cabinet mounted microwave oven model VM11B-8P


On the electronic control board, the circuit trace will open like a fuse if the light bulb power becomes shorted. If you or someone knows how to use a soldering iron, this can be repaired.
1. Remove the top grille. (Two screws on top)
2. Remove screw above button panel. Push up on panel to remove.
3. Remove circuit board from panel. Look on reverse side for a burned, open circuit trace.
4. Repair circuit trace everything should work again....

Light in convection shorted out when replaceing blub


This is most often caused by the filaments shorting when the bulb blows, or by not disconnecting the microwave from the power line when removing or installing a bulb.

 

This is a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95.
