Re: 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.


We have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa:

I have an R-8310 Sharp Microwave/convection oven. It just quit working while I was baking potatoes. There is no light and no sound. How old is this oven? Am I in the market for a new one? VLC

This is a 1985 model.

I would bet that the magnetron overheated, tripping the thermal cutout on the magnetron.

This can happen if the internal cooling fan is not running, or if the vents are blocked, or if the magnetron is failing and running hot, due to age in this case I would bet.

If you or someone you know can check and replace the defective parts, it would probably be economical, especially since this is a convection model.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:
(if it is NOT shorted or burned looking, it's probably fine)
(continuity can be good even though mag is bad!)

If you don't use the convection feature much, a simpler replacement oven may be the way to go.

You can find the bulk of the service manual with parts list online here.

Once you have part numbers, you can get pats at a good price from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

GE JVM1190 control pad

It is not your key panel, but the magnetron inside the microwave that is causing you the problem. The reason it does not short out on defrost or convection is because it is not drawing as much current through the magnetron to short out.

Short circuited Whirlpool MH1150XM while changing the bulb underneath. Need help to fix it, thanks :)

We replaced the board behind the control panel. $130.00. If you do this make sure you can put the wires back the right way. My husband finally got it and our micro is working like brand newThanks to all who tried to help.

My microwave/convection oven blew a fuse. replaced it and the convection works but when I try to use the microwave it blows the fuse again. what needs to be fixed?

Typically, when the fuse blows in the microwave, the high voltage capacitor fails and becomes shorted.
The door switches are also configured in such a way that if tampered with (in this case, failed switch or latch) the fuse will also blow. Check the capacitor first.

If you need further assistance let me know
