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.
Do you have any idea how to fix this problem?

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.
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!!!!!
disconnect the oven from power supply.
If the lamp of your microwave is in the most common location, you will need to open the oven by unscrewing the screws on the rear. You will see
the lamp behind the control panel.
remove and replace the bulb
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.

first remove mains cord from main power. and remove the microwave oven top cover and check the bulb and crefully remove the old bulb and put new bulb. at high voltagae section dont touch any thing ,that area very dangerous ,thats why very carefully work inside the microwave oven ..
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.
