Wife was changing the lower light bulb above the range , when the old burned out bulb broke in her hand , and must have still had power to it , and now the oven will not kick on, however the timer and clock does come on and even counts down as if it is working , pulled ceramic fuse under upper cover and then check out , and the board would not even turn on timer

    I had the same problem when I went to change the lightbulb. The microwave made a "fuse going bad" noise and would not work, while the timer and clock do work! My husband took it to a repair shop where they want $200.00 to replace the computer board. I think we paid about $200.00 for the microwave 20 months ago. Sounds like we may be getting the run around.

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.

How do i change the bulb on ag821azh microwave x2

Light 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.

I have a roper mounted microwave above my stove. i just need to know what kind of bulb goes underneath it.


Since you obviously intend replacing the bulb yourself (good for you!) you should first remove the old bulb and that will make it easier to find a new one. Chances are, its a common bulb, readily available wherever light bulbs are sold. Or, at the very least, a hardware store like Tru-Value or Home Base.

Lite bulb & fan stopped working but oven works fine.


had the same problem (self induced) and shorted out the oven.  took the control board out and found i had burned the circuit between the connector and high/low light microswitch.  just jumped the circuit with a piece of solder, reinstalled the board and the fan and light started working. it doesn't have a low light setting anymore but who cares, just saved 130 bucks.  not going to tell my wife how i broke it, only how i fixed it. very proud of myself and learned a little bit, mainly unplug the unit before working on it.

Are any other bulbs in the home going out prematurely? If so, I would check the actual voltage of your power outlets. If not, the bulbs may be getting grease or debris on them from stovetop cooking. This can cause hot psots and premature failure. I recommend wiping them clean with alcohol on a cloth before installing them. I recommend that folks always have their hood fan on when cooking on the stovetop. Also, you might check with a local home center (Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.) to see if they have some high-quality (non-Chinese) substitutes.

Light bulbs burning out


That does sound odd! On one hand, I would suspect that maybe the door is getting slammed and that vibration may be contributing to the failure. But that would be much more likely for an incandescent bulb than a fluorescent type. Which is yours? You may have a bad connection on the socket which is causing some excess heat. Does the blown bulb look funny on the ends or at the connection? Assuming you're using the bulb your manual calls for, and the socket is okay, it may be a problem on the control board. Once you've digested this reply, let me know what you find and we can take it from there.
