Question about GE JVM1650 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
Thanks for your help! First the switch for these lights failed, and I just kept the lights on all the time. Then I was changing a bulb, and I didn't think to cut power at breaker. The light bulb flashed in my hand and burned out the whole lighting system. The other functions of the machine all work normally. I have opened the housing to look for burnt fuses/wires and found nothing. Thanks again for advice!!
This looks like a new entry as opposed to a reply, so I don;t know what advice you got or from whom.
But based on your problem, I'd say I know your problem.
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.
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.
