Question about Microwave Ovens
I replaced both bulbs w/ Sylvania 40 watt bulbs.
Now neither work.
Fan works, so does turntable and rest of features; microwave functions fine, except for lights under unit.
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.
