The cooktop lamps on my Whirlpool MH6130XEQ-1 microwave do not work. Their receptacles receive 70 V AC, no matter whether and how many times the soft switch is pushed.


I just saw this inquiry today, and while you may have already dealt with this, here is my answer, in case it might help you or others:

We see and repair this on a regular basis with our $39.95 service. Details are here.

It's a problem caused when the cooktop lights fail or are removed or inserted with the power still on.

They short internally, and the resulting surge damages the control circuit board.

It can affect fan and oven light operation, keeping them from working or leaving them stuck on.

If you prefer to replace your control circuit board, you can order it (part number 8172054, formerly 4359661) for $168.39 plus
shipping from the Pros here.

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

We have a 6 burner, nat gas cooktop....all unit light but the igniter clicking will not stop...unplugged it . question: all mechanics are closed is this safe gaswise?


What happens in this style ignition system is that the thermostat or electronic control switches power to the oven ignitor and gas valve circuit which are connected in series (one after the other). As power flows through the ignitor it heats and draws current (measured in amperage). Once the oven ignitor draws a specific amount of current the oven valve opens to allow gas to flow to the oven burner where the glowing hot ignitor (glow bar) ignites it. Power must continually flow through the ignitor and oven gas valve for gas to be released into the oven burner to create a flame. Once the set temperature is achieved the control stops all power to the ignition circuit which causes the ignitor to dim and the oven gas valve to close, stopping any burner flame. Cycling on and off continues to maintain the specific temperature the control is set for.
