Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
LEFT THE NIGHT LIGHT ON OVERNIGHT AND IN MORNING FOUND THE GLASS COVER SHATTERED ---LOOKS LIKE BULB OVERHEATED AND CAUSED GLASS COVER TO BREAK. IS IT SAFE TO REPLACE BULB AND BROKEN GLASS OR COULD THERE BE A MORE SERIOUS PROBLEM??
SAME PROBLEM FOR ME...I REMOVED THE BOTTOM COVER AND FOUND THAT ONE LIGHT WAS NOT FIXED AND WAS LOOSE AND WAS TOUCHING THE GLASS. THIS HEAT WAS WHAT BROKE THE GLASS COVER. CLOSED INSPECTION SHOWED THE LIGHT SOCKET WAS TOO LARGE FOR THE CLIPS AND WERE NOT SECURED WHEN PURCHASED. I GOT SMALL SCREW AND NUT, BENT CLIPS SO THE SOCKET HOLE MATCHED THE HOLE MADE BY THE CLIP AND SECURELY ATTACHED THE SOCKET. THIS WILL SECURE THE LIGHT AND KEEP IT FROM TOUCHING THE GLASS..........IF I CAN EVER FIND A GLASS REPLACEMENT....MAY JUST HAVE ONE CUT. NOW THE PROBLEM IS TO REPLACE THE LIGHT AND MICROWAVE FUSE WHICH WAS BLOWN WHEN THE GLASS BROKE.

I would take the oven to the GE service rep and find out exactly what happened. This does not sound right!
