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 with a one year guarantee.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

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.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

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

I have a Kenmore microwave mounted above my stove. The light that lights my stove is blown and I can't find the right replacement bulb. It has two little prongs that should fit into the unders


Are these little spot lights? About the size of 1/2 dollar round and maybe 1.5 -2 inches long? 2 prongs about 1/2 inch apart? Take one of those lights and show it to a local hardware dealer like "Lowes". There are may types and some are 12V some are 110V. Thats why I suggest showing to the local hardware guy.

The night light switch on my maytag over the range microwave will not work


I am assuming you changed the bulb. Anything that sits over a stove will become mucked up with grease and cooking oils etc. That can prevent the bulb from seating in the socket, the switch from making contact, etc. Unplug the unit, remove the bulb and get int here to clean the grease out. That should fix it.

My surface light bulb burned out and I replaced it with a new bulb. But now the bulb stays lit and it won't turn off even though I turn it off from the light switch. Please help.


The only fix for it is to either buy another control board $300+ or if you are any good at wiring you can go the the hardware store get a manual toggle switch and install it under the microwave on the right hand side near the control area. But make sure the switch can handle the heat rising from the stove burners. We have about 120 of the microwaves on our properties and 6 of them have this issue. The relay internal switch becomes corroded and binds together from steam and boiling water. GE is JUNK.

Can,t turn the over the stove lighting on


Replace the bulb. If that doesn't work, the "Membrane switch" under the plastic film control panel is damaged. There is no good way to fix them. Contact hotpoint to see if they still have replacement panels available for this model. If not, either live without the light or replace the whole microwave.
