    Checked all three fuses. They do not seem to be blown. Can one of these small ceramic fuses be bad with a reading of 6 ohms and dropping while It is being checked?

Thanks for using FixYa. This might have happenned due to a blown fuse on the control board. There are 3 fuses in this microwave. Check for a little ceramic fuse that is in line after the big fuse which is connected to the main line. The fuse if located on the right front panel. There is also another ceramic fuse in the microwave. You'll need to check these fuses if they are fine.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

    Yes as advised earlier the little ceramic fuse which is in line after the big fuse on the right front panel can be bad and needs to be replaced.

The night light switch on my maytag over the range microwave will not work

I am assuming you changed the bulb. Anything that sits over a stove will become mucked up with grease and cooking oils etc. That can prevent the bulb from seating in the socket, the switch from making contact, etc. Unplug the unit, remove the bulb and get int here to clean the grease out. That should fix it.

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 with a one-year guarantee.

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 stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.
