Question about Kenmore Microwave Ovens
I am assuming the oven you have is as shown in this manual.
It is possible the key pad for the cook top lights is not working.
Did you check if the lights were actually blown when you replaced these?
Take a clean damp cloth and rub over the key pad a few times to remove any trapped impurity under it.
Have you checked the filters are clean and no grease is spreading into the lamp sockets?
Please post a comment to confirm if you find anything based on my observations.

The problem is likely on the control panel, which we repair nationwide 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 often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inopoerable or stuck on.
