Replacing the cavity light requires taking off the outer wrapper to access the bulb. Nothing easy or magical just an exercise in patience.

Magic Chef microwave MCO160UW stopped working after trying to change the lightbulb.


First thing to do is unplug it and take a pair of needle nose pliers and get the base of the old bulb out and replace it. Microwave ovens have a lot of things wired in 'series' which means that is one switch,bulb or any thing else in the circuit goes out then the circuit cannot complete it's path and will not let the other parts function. It is a safety feature that is built into them. As in many things I think they over do the safety features but they didn't ask me when they built it. LOL! Try replacing the bulb and let me know how it works.

Went to replace the bulb under the microwave and there was a loud 'pop'. Then the microwave was dead. Did not trip the breaker, and checked the fuse inside the microwave, and it is still fine, and so is...


< -- I see and repair this on a regular basis. Details are here .

This failure 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, as the warning label near the light socket advises.

Feel free to contact me for more information.

I opened my daewoo kor-1a1g microwave the other day and i thought the bulb burnt out but the lights on the screen went off as well and i cannot use it at all, is it broken? it worked perfectly beforehand...


If its total dead look to see plugged in and voltage where plugged in, it will also have a fuse inside that might be bad from a surge or a short.

If not able to open unit consider having a tech look at it and get an estimate.

My GE Advantium Microwave first had the cook top light go out. I replaced the bulb and it worked for about a week. The control panel went haywire, and then the interior light went out. I have replaced...


In this case, you have to check the control panel. There might be wire connections and contacts that loosens. The bulbs inside the oven is connected to a switch that that only functions once the oven is in closed position.

Sounds like a blown fuse. Carefully remove the cover, and the fuse in directly behind the power cord on the top. Radioshack sells 15A ceramic replacements.

MW8115SS worked perfectly and then went dead


Blown fuse , take the outer cover off and change the fuse. Iff you don't have a fuse use a piece of tin foil until you find a replacement fuse.
Hopefully this helps you out.

Replace light bulb in a microwave


Normally the bulb is located inside the microwave and to replace you will need to diassemble the cover using a philips screwdriver(most likely a philips one), then once the cover is removed you will see the bulb right away.Be careful to disconnect electricity supply to it.Also the whole cover has to be removed..where there is a vent on top etc..that is the one.Again careful with it as you could end up with electric shock.

GE MIcrowave model JVM1631BJ01 hood lights won't work


The part that controls that is goes through your control panel on your microwave. For the lights to come on to start with the door being closed switches have to be working right and when you press start the lights come one. When the microwave is through cooking and you open then close the door then the lights should go out. The logic IC on the control panel board that detects all these events is not being reset correctly. Unless you get a microwave tech to track down the component on the control panel circuit board it is not something that you could do on your own since it takes voltage and signal checks with the proper equipment and then some soldering and desoldering of the defective component(s). Good luck and God bless.

GE JVM1630BJ Microwave went completely dead with no power


Sounds like the bulb shorted, which is very common, and the first time it blew the fuse.

It sounds like when you put the new fuse in and tried it again, the bulb was still shorted, and this time it damaged the board.

We see (and repair) thisa lot. The problem is on the control panel, whichwe regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about aweek.

Atour Web site, we have a videoavailable showing how to remove a typicalover the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure oftenoccurs when a bulb goes out and the filamentshorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without firstunplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such afailure on the controller.

This can often alsoaffect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can beinoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our serviceand critical safety information and disassembly information is at oursite, and our link is at ourlisting hereon FixYa.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of yourfull model number) for more information & help.

We'rehappy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate yourthoughtful rating of our answer.
