Hotpoint RVM1425BA-003 Microwave Oven Stovetop Light Does Not Work

The stovetop lights on my Hotpoint RVM1425BA-003 Microwave oven have stopped working.  I replaced the bulbs with new 25W bulbs (less than the recommended 40W bulb) and nothing happens.  The digital display on the microwave oven states that the light is "on", but still no light.  I made sure the wires were secure & attached.  The microwave oven itself & the oven light ARE working.  Any suggestions?

The problem is almost certainly on the control panel, which we 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.

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

Exhaust fan


The fan pulls from the range top and either out those vents on top unless there is a vent in your upper cupboard. Then it is vented outside. Hope this helps.

Sharp R-1500 range lights


Are any other bulbs in the home going out prematurely? If so, I would check the actual voltage of your power outlets. If not, the bulbs may be getting grease or debris on them from stovetop cooking. This can cause hot psots and premature failure. I recommend wiping them clean with alcohol on a cloth before installing them. I recommend that folks always have their hood fan on when cooking on the stovetop. Also, you might check with a local home center (Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.) to see if they have some high-quality (non-Chinese) substitutes.
