Question about Whirlpool MH7135XE Microwave Oven
The microwave works fine, but the cooktop light over the range burnt out and after replacing the light stays on permanently. I think this means the circuit board was damaged?
I agree that the cost of the repair outweighs the cost of replacing the whole MW. It appears that the solid state device that takes the keypress from the keypad to control the light circuit is shorted so the light stays on all the time. Most likely from a lightning surge. Use it the way it is. You will hurt nothing without a light in the socket. My info indicates this is a model from the late 1990's so it is about 15 years old. It is not hard to changeout a microwave. You might need some help lifting it into place. Choose one as similar as possible to the old one.
