Question about GE Microwave Ovens
Right side light bulb blew. The other bulb will not shut off. I unplugged it and replaced both bulbs. Still lights will not shut off. The beeper works and the words come up for dim etc. Everything else on microwave works fine.
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.
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, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.
Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
