Question about Goldstar MV-1501 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Goldstar MIcrowave stopped working when light bulb blew out.

My Goldstar microwave stopped working.  It seems to have happened when the underneath light bulb blew out - or maybe the bulb blew out due to the problem.  
I heard a click when the bulb blew out and the microwave stopped working.  Could a fuse have blown?  Can I replace the fuse?
The microwave is completely dead, no lights, no display, nothing.

Model #MV1502B
Do you have any idea how to fix this problem?

    Bulb blew out and tripped breaker. I unplugged unit, opened up the unit and did some testing (I am a Electrical/Instrumentation Technician) and discovered that the circuit boardon the display face actually shorted out causing the sparks and causing unit to cease its life.

    undo almost every screw you see and remove the shell of the microwave. You will see the fuse holder near the cord.

Blew a trace off of the back of the board by it shorting out when the bulb was unscrewed, Either have to find someone to repair the main circuit board or order a new one. But $$$$ always unplug the Microwave to replace the builbs, It doesnt seem like a big deal but I have seen this a lot over the years and it really does some damage to the main PC board.

Lights under microwave will not come on


When this happens, a lot of the time, it is because the the old bulb burnt up violently or it was unscrewed with the power still on to the unit and if the wires on the bottom of the bulb were twisted together, it probably blew a trace off of the back of the circuit board that supplies power to te bulbs. So either need to find someone to repair the circuit board or buy a new one if you can put it in, if not, need to call a servicer to replace it. But caution, thay are not cheap!!! Always unplug you microwave BEFORE replacing the bulbs!!!!!

When i plug in the microwave it starts running & will not stop


Sounds like you blew a device on the main board when you didn't unplug it first. The whole main timer board must be replaced to repair the unit. Pricey, sorry!!

Underneath Light funtion stopped working on Kenmore 62642 model


We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide 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.

My microwave stopped working and I'd like to try and fix it myself. Any suggestions?


Because microwave leakage can be hazardous and high wattage is present, limit your microwave repairs to light bulb changes if the light bulb is easily accessible. For other repairs, call a qualified technician to make repairs on a microwave oven. If it doesn't work and the light doesn't go on, be sure it is receiving power.
