The lamp of won't work

follow the steps and fix it. God bless you

ight Bulb

If the microwave light bulb is not working it is usually located behind the upper grille and behind an access panel, and above the lower panel. On counter top units you will need to remove the outer cover to get to the bulb. If that doesn't solve the problem check the on-off switch, and control board

Main Control Board

If the microwave light bulb is not working check the light bulbs, sockets and wiring. If they are good the main control board might be defective.


Light Bulb Socket

If the microwave light bulb is not working and a new light bulb doesn't solve the problem, the light bulb socket might be burned out and need to be replaced.

Turntable not working

Possible failure of the drive belt or the turntable motor. Remove the bottom cover to confirm failure of the drive ,belt or if the motor has failed- check power to the motor when the microwave works if the motor tests OK.

I have a GE Microwave oven model JVM1790SK01. The surface light switch doesn't work - the lamp stays on all the time; won't dim to night light and won't turn off

There are wires going from the main board to the surface lamp and turntable. They are thin orange, yellow and blue wires. I think the surface lamp is yellow and the turntable wires are orange. You should first try taking the bottom cover off. There are about 8 screws under neath and the bottom cover hinges on the back edge, just let it hang. You can now see the wires. Those wires short to the case where they go through from the main board to the lamps or turntable motor. You now have to move them away form the case. Sometimes they get pinched to the metal cabinet by the lamp socket area. Look for signs of pinched wiring there at the lamp socket or where they go through. Move them away, tape up the bad area.

No power to unit. Internal fuse ok. Power ok to plug

It sounds like you have a short in the keypad controller system, there is a microprocessor board mounted behind the the keypad that control vital areas of the microwave's operation. I suggest appliance technician to check out the systems hardware and the rest of the oven.

Whirlpool microwave hood combination has code f2 on touch panel. Model number: MH-1150xm

The F2 error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

On these models, usually the membrane keypad is not available separately, so you would have to order and replace the control panel frame which comes with a new keypad (sometimes called "panl-cntrl").

The part availability and cost will depend on the full model number from the tag on the unit, and it will be one of these:


You can order the part and find helpful exploded view diagrams here.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

We have a JVM 1443bk02 ge microwave. Today the turntable stopped working. You can depress the key pad on/off button but that makes no difference for the turntable. How do you test to make sure it is the...

The problem with the turntable could be the following:
  1. Gummed up lubrication or bad bearings. Check to see if there is any food on the turntable spindle.
  2. If that is ok, check to see if the belt is loose or broken.
  3. If that is ok, check the motor. A meter will confirm whether there is power going to the motor, when you depress the keypad on button. Use the AC Volts setting, if you have about 21 VAC and the motor does not work, then the motor is bad.

4175sp microwave has no power to turntable

I assume this is Whirlpool model GH4175sp?

This answer also assumes that yours does not allow for keypad control of the turntable.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven. You may have to cut the cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
