Question about Microwave Ovens
I have a GE Spacemaker Microwave (Model # JVWM1630BH003) that recently blew a bulb in the range hood light. Since that bulb blew, I have been unable to toggle the lights off (they are locked in the "on" position). I have tried replacing the bulbs and unplugging the unit and pluggin it back in - no luck. Toggling the light switch does evoke an audible "beep" each time (normal) and the display toggles between "Light On" and Light Off" (normal). I am thinking a relay is cooked (no pun intended). Any thoughts? Obviously I'd prefer to fix it myself.
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 can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
