Question about Microwave Ovens

Kenmore Microwave Oven cooktop light

The cooktop light is stuck on high. When touching the switch on control it will toggle from off to high to night and the relays click but light stays on. You say in the article I read that means a bad controller, do you mean the logic board or the actual touch pad? How long of a wait is it for you to repair controller for 39.95?

Turnaround is usually about a week "door to door".

The problem is on the circuit board, but we ask that you send the control panel assembly, by which we mean the plastic control panel frame, keypad, and circuit board as an assembly.

Vent fan will not turn on.Display keeps showing vent fan off


Did this occur after a failure of your cooktop lights?

Or is there is buzzing noise present when the oven is not operating, or when the door is opened?

If so, then 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.
