We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

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.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or no bright, too. Sometimes this will similarly affect the exhaust fan operation or inside light, too.Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

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

How to change the light bulb


What kind of microwave oven is this? A counter-top model or an over-the-range microwave? Do you have a brand and model number? And which light bulb do you want to replace - the cavity light bulb, or the bottom light(s) of an OTR microwave?

Replaced the touchpad and put it all back together. It now heats, but the oven light doesn't come on and the turntable doesn't rotate. Do you think there's a loose wire?


First check is the main fuse of the unit. On countertopunits, you will need to take the shell off. The fuse will be close to where thecord comes through into the unit. OTR units, this main fuse is usually behindthe control panel or possibly behind the vent. Usually the fuse is obvious ifblown, otherwise test with an OHM meter, if open, replace fuse. Some brands will also have a thermal cut-off fuse in theincoming voltage line to the control board. This thermostat looking fuse isusually above the oven cavity somewhere under the outside shell. Sometimes youcan get to it through the vent of OTR models. Test with an OHM meter, replaceif open. Forturntable: First, make sure the turntable coupler under the glass dish is notbroken. Second, on the control board, find the turntable relay and test forvoltage. Some turntable motors are 24 volts DC, so make sure you're testing thecorrect voltage. If no voltage from the control board, then replace the controlboard. Otherwise head towards the turntable motor. On OTR models, you can get to the motor by un-screwing thebottom panel on the microwave. On countertop models, there will either be aknockout or screw on access panel. Check for voltage at the motor. If novoltage, check the wiring back towards the control. If voltage, then replacethe turntable motor. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

Ewave over the stove microwave fuse blows when I


The light is the only thing that comes on when you open door. You either have a shorted door switch (Micro switch) or a shorted bulb. You have either a shorted bulb or bad socket. From my experience, it's the bulb. Just because it may seem to start to come on when you open the door, it's most likely bad. At least it not expensive.

Replace OTR Microwave


Thanks for responding. It is a EWave KOT-152UW. I think EWave is part of Magic Chef. I think it is the door switch. When I opened the microwave, the circuit breaker tripped. I reset the circuit breaker, and it worked for several days, but the last time, the microwave went dead. The reason I want to use the same bracket is it has through the wall (horizontal) venting to the outside, and I am not keen on trying to cut more holes.

The turn table and fan are connected in series with the bulb,as you have mentioned that you have replaced bulb,so please check again for any loose contact on bulb holder or bulb continuity again.
