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.

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.

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

Hood fan and light suddenly do not work. there is power to the unit. where can I get it serviced?


Unfortunately a service cal to have it repaired is often more expensive that replacing the unit yourself. All new units come with instructions and it is an easy item to take down and replace. Just make sure you turn the power off before do the work.

Most repair shops don't even attempt to repair the standard range hood, because troubleshooting time and then finding the right part can eat up more time than a replacement would be.

Sorry for the bad news, but you would be money ahead to replace versus repairing unless it is a very high end range hood.

We have a over-the-range LG Microwave Model #LMVM2055ST purchased in 2006. It was working fine until today when I tried to heat something, it wouldn't start. The light works inside when you open the...


Most likely the touch panel is bad. You can try ordering a new one from repairclinic.com by searching with your model number. If you find that replacing it doesn't help, return the panel within 30 days and you are only out the shipping costs. With what you describe, it should be the panel itself. Let me know what you find out.

The relay for the lights is not working. No board level repairs. You will have to replace the control board to get this feature back.

Down lights/night light not working


I'll do my best w/out model#... remove 2 screws top of the air vent grill to remove grill.. remove 1 screw at top of touch pad.. you will see maybe 2 or 3 diff fuse area...thats how you get to the fuse for your question.. but I think the relay in your control for the light is bad. unforturnately you have to replace the whole board (in most over the range micro) good luck.. mike
