Sounds like a cross wire, and a short. I'd inspect the socket for the bulbs to ensure that there's no short circuit.

We have a model #JVM1660CB 002. Our under unit lights popped one day and quit working. The switch seems to still work and indicates the various modes - night light, bright light, etc., we tried new bulbs...


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.

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.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

We have replaced the light bulb that shines from the bottom in the past. We just replaced it again (120watt 40v; GE brand). It is a good light bulb...but it doesn't work. Everything else on the microwave...

I purchased a Magic Chef under cabinet microwave from Home Depot on clearance. Got it home and installed when testing all the functions all worked well but the night light function. if you press the light...


Since it's a clearance item, it may not have a warranty.

But you should check with Home Depot on that if you haven't already.

Otherwise, you'd have to have it repaired yourself.

Turntable, lights and fan inop


I'm guessing that nothing is working...is that right? If so, first guess is the breaker or an internal fuse. Nearly all units have them. You don't say what fuse you checked. Unplug the unit, remove the bulb and see what is in the socket. Next, open the breaker and then turn it back on. This will reset it. Something caused this.

The turn table and fan are connected in series with the bulb,as you have mentioned that you have replaced bulb,so please check again for any loose contact on bulb holder or bulb continuity again.
