Question about Microwave Ovens
We see this a lot. 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.

Whirlpool customer service said to turn off the breaker for about 10 minutes, leaving the microwave plugged in. This should restart the computer.
