Microwave heats, but the turntable and lights don't work


see the chart for light 1)
  • Light bulbIf your microwave light bulb is not working, perhaps it has blown. The first step is to replace the bulb and power on the microwave. If this does not correct the issue, the next step is to check the socket and wiring to verify if that is the problem.
  • Light bulb socket & main control boardIf your microwave light bulb is not working after the installation of a new bulb, check the light socket as well as the wiring to ensure they are properly operating. If these sources are functioning properly, the next step is to check for a faulty control board as a possible root cause to your microwave light bulb malfunction
  • 2) the carousel inside your microwave won't turn when you run it, the small motor that operates it may be broken.
    God bless you

    Cooktop light socket needs replacing, bulb broke in it. Socket needs replacing.


    make sure the light is off, better yet turn off the breaker

    take a potato a little larger than the socket, cut it to size, whatever.. jam it into the broken bulb (carefully), this will allow you to grip the broken bulb safely. turn counter clockwise and whats left of the bulb should unscrew out.. works VERY well

    If the lamp socket has power (and it's the right voltage) and the replacement lamp is the correct one and tests good, then the trouble is in the socket. It may have been damaged when the original lamp went "poof." Check for damaged contacts (burnt or broken off). Also, make sure you're seating the lamp correctly in the socket. If the bulb is a push-and-turn ("bayonet") type, you may be facing it the wrong way and it's not going all the way in.

    WE have a GE Spacesaver Microwave installed July 2005. I have tried to replace burned out nite lite bulb. Both bulbs broke from socket as I tried to unscrew. Bulb base will not unscrew. How do I get the...


    First be sure the oven is unplugged whenever you are removing or installing light bulbs.

    This is pretty common and can be a pain. It's tacked in place with hot glue, and sometimes there may have been enough moisture to corrode and seize up.

    You could heat it up (hair dryer, maybe?) then use needle nose pliers. Be careful if heating so you don't burn anything.

    You may be able to put the tips of needle nose pliers inside the broken bulb's socket, gently but firmly force the pliers jaws apart and then rotate the pliers to loosen it.

    Another cool trick is to put a big glob of hot glue on the end of a stick or dowel, then shove it into the broken base and let it cool about 5 minutes, then turn the stick.

    I like to put a little WD-40 or rust buster on the threads of the new bulb, too. Grease, Vaseline, cooking oil, or anything like that will work. Just a thin coat.

    Once you get new bulbs in, if they don't work, that's circuit board damage which we repair for $39.95 for customers nationwide and you can feel free to contact me directly.

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

    Broken bulb


    Get yourself a cork from a bottle of wine (wait to drink the wine until after you've removed the bulb!). Now, with the power plug REMOVED from the wall socket, gently but firmly press the cork into the broken bulb. You should now be able to screw the broken bulb out of the socket. If there's not any bulb glass or shards or anything else for the cork to grip, you may need to insert a small pair of pliers into the socket, and with reverse pressure (i.e. pulling the handle apart as opposed to squeezing together) you may be able to remove the bulb. And if that doesn't work, well, keep trying. You just need to be creative. Try using needle nose pliers and grabbing the edge of the bulb socket and gently work to loosen (remember lefty loosy, righty tighty) turning counterclockwise to remove.

    Broken light bulb


    First of all, always disconnect the oven from the line before you remove or install bulbs, otherwise, you can damage the control board. We repair them all the time because of this.
