Question about GE Spacemaker 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave
My surface light is out. Need to replace with correct type but I cannot locate it in any parts or diagrams from ge. A simple over the range light on the bottom of the Microwave should be a user consumable item to replace you think it would be in normal customer user guide. I think it may have two bulbs that are the 40w ge small base bulb? Could you tell me the exact bulb type for replacement? Model is JVM1631 *** 03 Black over the range ge microwave

You can find and order them easily by entering your full model number from the tag in or on the unit and also find helpful exploded view diagrams here.
Also, your owner's manual should cover that, and they usually have the GE part number inside. You can download them here.
Note that these are likely halogen bulbs, so do not handle them with bare skin. The oils on the skin will reduce their service life.
If after replacing the bulbs, they still won't work, won't shut off, or you have trouble with the fan or turntable, the filaments may have shorted, causing a surge which damaged your control circuit board.
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.
