Sorry to read about your problem.
It seems your have a general failure in the power control or switch failure on the unit.

  1. No power to outlet (blown fuse or tripped breaker or GFCI).
  2. Blown main fuse - likely due to other problems.
  3. Open thermal protector or thermal fuse.
  4. Defective controller or its power supply.
  5. Clock needs to be set before other functions will operate (some models).
Microwaves must be serviced by technicians due to the inherent dangers involved in repairing these appliances. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even though the unit is completely unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any internal component repair.

Micro wave oven light works as a work light but when you hit the button for the night light to come on it doesn't come on hit the button again and it's off


The problem is on the control panel, which can be repaired economically.

There is a a YouTube 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.

Cooktop Light / Night light


It is the control panel. You can actually just replace the circuit board on the control panel and it should fix this.

My microwave is not heating-- the control panel seems to work-- you punch in the buttons and it starts counting down the minutes, but nothing happens except for the clock to count down. The model # is...


Since the inside light and fan don't come on but the timer counts down, I would suspect first a door switch problem, or (less likely) a problem on the control panel.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

Lighting Problem

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

NIGHTLIGHT WON'T WORK BUT SURFACE LIGHT WILL


This is a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95. This is most often caused by the filaments shorting when the bulb blows, or by not disconnecting the microwave from the power line when removing or installing a bulb.
