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.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions (very handy when removing the oven form the wall for parts replacement) here.


You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts here.

Sorry to read about your problem.
It seems your have a general failure in the power control or switch failure on the unit. you said your unit has power, and things lite. Then it is more likely you have a control/switch problem,

Microwaves must be serviced by technicians due to the inherent dangers involved in repairing these appliances. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even though the unit is completely unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any internal component repair

Our Advantium 120 oven (model # SCA1001KSS 02, Manufactured June 2008)is not working. Began w/ time not coming on when cooking and just a little green microwave light shows while cooking.


Typical of a control microchip failure caused by a power surge. With a microwave as old as yours, it is safest to simply replace the entire oven rather than attempt to fix it, as older magnetrons are likely to fail.

Panasonic Inverter Microwave, NN-H665BF, Smoking Issue


The magnatron is covered by warranty for 5 years and I just spoke with an authorized Panasonic repair center who said the inverter is covered on this unit depending on the manufacture date, like april 04 to october 05 approximately.

Turntable continues to run


This seems to be a pretty mysterious situation, and you're not alone in being concerned about an inability to find good contact information.

I would strongly suggest that you contact your RV dealer.

If the parts or service department cannot or will not give you good contact information on High Pointe, i would suggest insisting on speaking to the dealership's manager.

Please let us know what you find out so others can benefit.

GE XL 1800 quit heating


I don't like to pass on your problem but it sounds very much like either the high voltage supply ot the magnetron has bit the dust.
Either one would make the repair marginal at best.

This is apparently not a very good unit, many microwaves jsut kind of fade away as their magnetron emissions decay.

This one seems to have a bad rep. look at this link:

Sorry, have owned a lemon or two myself.
