Changed the light bulbs in my ge jvm315 and know the surface light will not turn off ?


This sounds like the control board also called a smart board in some models has to be replaced.

Wont turn off


This is either a sticking relay, in which case you'd need circuit board repair, or a sticking door switch or defective door switch mount.

See my help file on door switches here.

If you need further help, feel free to contact me or follow up here with your full model number.

I have model # JVM1430WD002. Both the under light & ventilation fan are not working. When I press the button, I can hear a click but nothing comes on.


Sounds to me like you main control board is failing. The relays on the board that control the light and fan are closing but the points in the relay are probably burnt and not making contact. You will probably need to replace the main control board. Hope that helps.

New smart board installed in microwave, still doesn't work


It sounds like he "shotgunned" and blamed the board without experience enough to know the difference or to test it.

We would need to know what exact problem you're having and what your full model number is.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help or see our Web site.

Microwave PLMVZ169 GCB night light push button does not work. Replace the light bulb. Push button still does not work. The work light does when I push the night light it stays on. Just wondering how to...


Q - While trying to change the light bulb on the oven, the bulb broke. When it did, it threw the circuit breaker and the whole oven went out. After resetting the breaker, everything on the oven works except there is no power to either light socket. Any ideas or suggestions on what to replace?
A - You tried to change the light bulbs with the power still on.....tsk tsk!!
Hate to say this....but probably blew out part of the circuit on the smart board ( the brains behind the key panel you touch ) when the short blew. The light relay on the smart board may have been damaged but 9 out of 10 times when I check them, the board itself is damaged.
check out this problem.
please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.thanks,

Advantium 120 fan and tray keep running


Looking at the service manual here, I'd bet that relay number RY6 is shorted on the "sub PC" relay circuit board, or its driver transistor on the main "smart" board is shorted.

Unless your technician does component-level repair, he'll probably want to just sell you a new sub board, or main ("smart") board, or both.

They list for $64.78 and $109.83 respectively here. Hard to tell what they'll mark them up to.

Then add about $150-200 for the labor.

On the other hand, we regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

Or you can tell your technician about our services.

Please do not operate the microwave (other than short bursts when testing) until the cooling fan is working again.

Otherwise, the magnetron will be destroyed, and that's expensive.

When the magnetron overheats (since the cooling fan is not working) the magnetron thermostat opens up to kill power and protect the magnetron until it cools back down again.

Chances are you have a bad connection, bad relay, or bad component driving the relay on the control circuit board.

If you will scan (at 300dpi if possible) the schematic, and e-mail it to me, along with clear digital photos of both sides of the board, I can probably help you get this fixed.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number).
