Spacesaver XL1800 Nite Lite will not go off

I turn off the auto nite lite feature, turn off the nite lite, and turn off the surface light and it stays on, all the time. The surface light settings will make it bright and dim but will not shut it off when it says off. Any ideas?

The problem is almost certainly 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.

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

It's not a ground problem, but more likely a weak or open neutral connection somewhere. This can cause damage to other connected devices because of excessive voltage, and should be taken care of quickly. You should have a licensed electrician check and repair this, both because it may be difficult to locate exactly where the problem is, and because your insurance policy will probably require repairs be done by qualified personnel.

Keypad number buttons not working on ge spacesaver microwave - auto program buttoms work?


Very angry. Fairly new, little-used Spacesaver Microwave [3][Clock][Surface Light] buttons now do not work. We never even press [3], just [1] and [2] to warm sandwiches.
Unplugged for an hour. Still not working. Everything else works. We never use anything else. Bad solder joint in circuit board or keypad?
Thank you.

GE spacesaver microwave XL1800, all works but not heating


There are some troubleshooting steps you can take to possibly determine the problem before calling or taking it for service, you need a multimeter and a capacitor discharging tool. if you posses BOTH of these tools,
there are 4 causes for this symptom
1) Transformer
2) Capacitor
3) Diode
4) Magnetron
I can instruct you on how to test and/or replace the first three of these. The magnetron is VERY dangerous and should not be serviced or tampered with except by qualified personel. let me know if you would like to take any of these steps otherwise you could bring it to a repair station.
Hope this helps...Feedback always helps me

WE have a GE Spacesaver Microwave installed July 2005. I have tried to replace burned out nite lite bulb. Both bulbs broke from socket as I tried to unscrew. Bulb base will not unscrew. How do I get the...


First be sure the oven is unplugged whenever you are removing or installing light bulbs.

This is pretty common and can be a pain. It's tacked in place with hot glue, and sometimes there may have been enough moisture to corrode and seize up.

You could heat it up (hair dryer, maybe?) then use needle nose pliers. Be careful if heating so you don't burn anything.

You may be able to put the tips of needle nose pliers inside the broken bulb's socket, gently but firmly force the pliers jaws apart and then rotate the pliers to loosen it.

Another cool trick is to put a big glob of hot glue on the end of a stick or dowel, then shove it into the broken base and let it cool about 5 minutes, then turn the stick.

I like to put a little WD-40 or rust buster on the threads of the new bulb, too. Grease, Vaseline, cooking oil, or anything like that will work. Just a thin coat.

Once you get new bulbs in, if they don't work, that's circuit board damage which we repair for $39.95 for customers nationwide and you can feel free to contact me directly.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
