Question about Microwave Ovens
I have a GE Spacemaker XL Microwave Oven. One of the lights underneath burned out and while trying to replace it the light broke and I not only shorted out the other light but now the vent fan does not work either. I replaced the two lights...this is how I know they do not work and of course I mentioned the fan also stopped working. When I select the lights or vent fan I can hear what sounds like a little "click" that seems to be in the area of the selection panel. Any ideas what I may have done and how I could correct it?
We see this a lot. The problem is 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.
