The turn table and fan are connected in series with the bulb,as you have mentioned that you have replaced bulb,so please check again for any loose contact on bulb holder or bulb continuity again.

The problem is likely on the control panel, which we repair nationwide 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 often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inopoerable or stuck on.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and

disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

This is a sure sign that the MAGNATRON needs replaced (this is what heats up the food) if every thing else works but food not cooking! 99% of time it is the magnatron!
Please rate answer!
THANK YOU!

SOURCE: Microwave light bulb out

This is simple, and "FixYa" technical staff has clearly not looked at our model.

Take off the vent across the top (three long screws) to expose a single screw over the keypad.

Remove the single screw, and the whole keypad consile will lift up and off, likely hanging by a plastic tab/support on the bottom.

Now you can twist the light bulb plug to remove it from the support structure, change the bulb, and replace all that you've done.

Simple.

My Underlight on my Frigidaire Microwave does not turn off


Hello Michael Fiedler, thank you for your post!

I understand that the light under your Frigidaire microwave will not turn off. Sounds like it could be a possible issue within the switch or receptacle. These intricate parts do require precision and patience, therefore when replacing the exchange of electrical components or removing them from your appliance, I always suggest seeking professional assistance. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

FGMV205K cover removal


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you want to know how to remove the cover on your Frigidaire microwave, model# FGMV205K. There are two different covers that you are able to remove for access to two different light bulbs.

If you are trying to change the Microwave Oven Light for inside your microwave:

    1)To replace light bulb, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.

    2)Remove the louver by removing the three Hood Louver Screws.

    3)Push in the upper tabs and pull the louver away from your appliance.

    4)Remove the light bulb and replace with a new 20 watt light bulb. DO NOT USE BULB LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

    5)Close the Oven Light Cover by carefully pushing into place. Push the louver back into place (engaging both the bottom and top tabs) and change to hood Louver Screws.


    If you are trying to change the light bulbs underneath your Microwave:

      1)To replace light bulbs, first disconnect power to your microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging it.

      2)To open Light Cover, remove the screw on the light cover.

      3)Replace the light bulbs with new 20 watt light bulbs. DO NOT USE BULBS LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

      4)Close the Light Cover and secure with screw removed at step 2.

      If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please let me know the error codes displayed on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

      -Best Regards-

The range-top light blew and now replacement bulbs


My Whirlpool/Roper microwave/hood combo has the same problem. I replaced the bulb twice, checked the bulb and it works, but not in the microwave. I wrote to Whirlpool asking about the problem. Haven't heard from them yet.
