Arched from recessed area next to light


Your description is a little vague. I am assuming that you are saying that the inside of the unit has black scorching marks near the area that the interior light bulb is housed. If that is the case then the coating on the inside of the microware is compromised. This is usually caused from food particles getting stuck the inside or it has become scratched. When this happens, the microwave will continue to spark in that area, This will result in further black marks and it will cause the entire unit to fail at its most expensive part, sooner. You can take care of this issue by cleaning the interior very well and then paint the inside again with microwave oven paint. It has to be special paint.

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.

The bulb light inside the microwave went dead with the microwave working perfectly...how do I replace the bulb?


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

The second under cabinet light went out with a pop, and the vent fan went out with it. Is there a fuse for both somewhere? The turntable motor and light and fan still work. Will th vent fan come back on if...


There is a varistor or thermostat switch mounted on the wall behind the control panel. I unpluged the leads and shorted them together. the fan and lights started working again. I got another microwave off freecycle.org for parts. I noticed a lot of sites tend to point to the control panel for a $36 to $100 board repair. Don't fall for it. H.G.

Have a Whirlpool RMC275PD microwave. Light bulb


no, no, no,,,its far to dangerous for you to open up the case of your microwave to change a light buld,,,
dont even think of going in there,,,
inside your microwave there are 1000,s of volts stored up in a capacitor if you tuch it you could kill yourself
have you ever seen a police stun gun working,,
it realy hurts you,,,,,
inside your microwave is the stun guns big brother
it dont just stun you,, it could kill you,,,
thats why you dont go inside it ok,,,
the light buld can be changed from inside the case normaly if it cant be, then drop it in the shop for a repair or use it with out a light in it,,
dont try and kill yourself just for a light buld

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.

Light bulb replacement in a Tappan Microwave


Hi Mike.

Difficult to say on yours. You may try the following. On the back or side, if there is a little cover that's screwed into the panel. Otherwise browse around on the inside. Be sure to unplug the micro before checking. Once found be sure to replace with a microwave lamp and not a fridge lamp. There is a difference. Good Luck,JUS004
