Sounds like the ERC board failed. It maybe covered under warranty, check that first cause a new ERC could cost around $150-$200. Anything electric can cause the .."what the*^&% just happened syndrome.

SOURCE: Microwave Arcing

The metal shelf that comes with most microwave ovens must NEVER come in contact with any surface of the cavity wall or arcing will occur. (this is why its is mounted on plastic clips). IF you are not using the shelf to cook multiple items (as most people don't)....Remove the shelf and store somewhere else until needed.

SOURCE: Kenmore Microwave Model 721.67601790 lights don't work!

This seems to be happening to this model a lot!

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, whichwe regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week.

Atour site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typicalover the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filamentshorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without firstunplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such afailure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your 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.

SOURCE: panasonic microwave no power or light

I must have suggested this 20 time today. if you open the casing you will find several fusees that the manufacturers don't want you to know about.
you have a 10 ampish large fuse that protects the power circuits ( transformer/magnatrons) smaller fuses for control circuits also might want to look atand reset the thermal cutouts. if it overheatedprior to failure

SOURCE: The microwave oven does not have power to the panel.

HI, this will require the skilled hands of a qualified GE tech. the damaged part here is the Magnetron assembly. this is a very sensitive part that creates radiation and the heating process as well. you will need to replace this device asap if possible.

    BROKEN GLASS COVER UNDER NIGHT LIGHT


    SAME PROBLEM FOR ME...I REMOVED THE BOTTOM COVER AND FOUND THAT ONE LIGHT WAS NOT FIXED AND WAS LOOSE AND WAS TOUCHING THE GLASS. THIS HEAT WAS WHAT BROKE THE GLASS COVER. CLOSED INSPECTION SHOWED THE LIGHT SOCKET WAS TOO LARGE FOR THE CLIPS AND WERE NOT SECURED WHEN PURCHASED. I GOT SMALL SCREW AND NUT, BENT CLIPS SO THE SOCKET HOLE MATCHED THE HOLE MADE BY THE CLIP AND SECURELY ATTACHED THE SOCKET. THIS WILL SECURE THE LIGHT AND KEEP IT FROM TOUCHING THE GLASS..........IF I CAN EVER FIND A GLASS REPLACEMENT....MAY JUST HAVE ONE CUT. NOW THE PROBLEM IS TO REPLACE THE LIGHT AND MICROWAVE FUSE WHICH WAS BLOWN WHEN THE GLASS BROKE.

    Bulb replacement


    WAIT!!! Before you just take the lamp cover off and try to replace the bulb that way, which would MAKE SENSE!!!, stop! All you'll do is snap the bulb off, leaving the metal screwy end of the bulb in the socket. Believe me - it happened to me. Twice.

    The only way to ensure that you'll be able to get the entire bulb out, because the only way you can actually SEE what you're doing, is to remove the bottom cover of the microwave. It's about 6 screws along the underneath surface of the unit. After removing the screws, the front of the cover will hang down and the rear will stay nested in a groove at the back. At this point, you'll be able to see the backs of the light sockets. Remove the two screws on either side of the sockets, and you can gently pull the bulbs out of the housing so you can actually see and work with them.

    Chances are, the bulbs have been GLUED into the sockets with silicone, which GE says it does to prevent moisture from getting into the sockets. Right. Then why is it that the replacement lamps work just fine without being glued in?! Anyway - GE actually instructs in the manual to "run a knife around the edge of the socket" to break the silicone seal. Hmmm..Sounds safe to me.

    So, after you've eliminated the silicone one way or another, just gently unscrew the lamp like you would any other.

    Trust me - you do not want to try to remove the lamps without removing the bottom cover. Oh, yeah - most importantly, unplug the microwave first! Good luck.
