We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 with a one year guarantee.

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, inside light, or turntable too.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

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

Microwave heats, but the turntable and lights don't work


see the chart for light 1)
  • Light bulbIf 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.
  • Light bulb socket & main control boardIf 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
  • 2) the carousel inside your microwave won't turn when you run it, the small motor that operates it may be broken.
    God bless you

    R-8350, No power to touchpad, but interior light works


    The touchpad has its own fuse which has probably blown due to a surge perhaps related to the turning on of the fridge. Removing the cover from a microwave is potentially lethal due to the large capacitor to drive the magnetron. However, this is usually well away from the front panel. If you do venture in you should first unplug the unit and when the outer cover is removed, discharge the large capacitor with well insulated pliers -= otherwise keep well away from it. The fuse you are interested in is on the pc board behind the touchpad. Replace it with exactly the same fuse (usually a slow blow fuse).

    I replaced the bulbs in the underside of the microwave but the lights still won't turn on, can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong or something else I need to do? It's a whirlpool model # MH6130XEB-1

    You did not say if the machine works otherwise.

    I gather you replace the bulbs in the ventilation section;
    http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=260489

    Click on the diagram 8 in the left-hand side for ventilation for those bulbs.

    Is it plugged in ?

    You can check.
    Line Fuse
    Thermal Fuse
    You can find a diagram at;
    http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=260489

    Click on the diagram 5 in the left-hand side for interior parts and another bulb.

    You can check;
    Switch;
    You can take a voltmeter and place it on the bulb contacts and see if voltage is present when the machine is switch on.

    Interior Microwave doesnt come on..Burned out?


    If it doesn't have a door you have to remove the cover. Its likely a special microwave bulb and the socket will have to be replaced with the bulb. the bulb is built onto the socket.
