Question about Magic Chef CMV1000B Microwave Oven

1 Answer

MCO160UW interior light

After a lengthy and tedious self-installation, I was disappointed to find the interior light on my brand new microwave didn't work. Rather than take it down and return the entire unit, I chose to consult the user's manual, where it gave me full instructions as to how to replace the bulb.
Unfortunately, the manual didn't point out that the old bulb was impossible to remove. It is not only in a very hard-to-get-at place, but the bulb appears to be secured by some kind of heavy electrical tape or something similar.
My only option (it would seem) would be to take the oven down and in for repair on a LIGHT BULB of all things.
Not a very happy customer.

I have a GE JVM 1870 over the range microwave with the active vent. The interior light is out which is a simply fix. How to I get to it?


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  1. Light bulb If your microwave light bulb is not working, perhaps it has blown. The first step is to replace the bulb and power on the microwave. If this does not correct the issue, the next step is to check the socket and wiring to verify if that is the problem.
  2. Light bulb socket & main control board If your microwave light bulb is not working after the installation of a new bulb, check the light socket as well as the wiring to ensure they are properly operating. If these sources are functioning properly, the next step is to check for a faulty control board as a possible root cause to your microwave light bulb malfunction.

Start button an 1/2 buttons on keypad no work in my GE JVM150H microwave. Interior light also stays on.


The door has latch switches that are part of the protection and operation when door is closed, is the new door identical and switches match up {same number} if everything checks and the door switches are all working, the door needs to be checked for alignment, if it's out a small margin the switches will not operate properly.

Hello bruton. As a microwave oven ages, the interior paint often deteriorates as does the internal part that creates the micro waves.

Using this is not a good idea as there is now a fire hazard. The best solution is to replace the microwave. There are sales now and you can get a nice new one for under $100.

I have a brand new Bosch microwave model HMV8051U It was installed for 1 day and the interior glass on the door shattered. What would cause this to happen?


It could be door alignment, damaged or chipped when installed, scratched and moisture got in the scratch and turned to steam under pressure or hit with something spinning around in the machine.
Almost anything.
Take it back and get it replaced.

Microwave won't heat - neither will new replacement one!


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.

The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.

There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

Interior light won't go off


Asta, the cavity light runs through the secondary door switch which is the top one. Sometimes during shipping these switches get knocked loose from there mounting and the oven starts doing some funky things. You can remove the control panel and get a look at these switches, they will be to the left. See if they are all secure in their mounts. Also check the p-4 harness on the board, re-set it. This is where the cavity light relay harness is. If it's new, call for warranty service...high voltage here, be careful....Catriver...post back.
