Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
Our unit was working fine and still does except for the surface lights and vent fan stopped all together. I looked for fuse or reset and can not locate any. We do get power surges and I think we had a severe lightening storm just before we noticed problem. I figured if it got hit it wouldn't work at all. Has anyone had this issue before and was it resolved without replacing with a new unit?
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.
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 can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
