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.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

My surface light bulb burned out and I replaced it with a new bulb. But now the bulb stays lit and it won't turn off even though I turn it off from the light switch. Please help.


The only fix for it is to either buy another control board $300+ or if you are any good at wiring you can go the the hardware store get a manual toggle switch and install it under the microwave on the right hand side near the control area. But make sure the switch can handle the heat rising from the stove burners. We have about 120 of the microwaves on our properties and 6 of them have this issue. The relay internal switch becomes corroded and binds together from steam and boiling water. GE is JUNK.

I have a roper mounted microwave above my stove. i just need to know what kind of bulb goes underneath it.


Since you obviously intend replacing the bulb yourself (good for you!) you should first remove the old bulb and that will make it easier to find a new one. Chances are, its a common bulb, readily available wherever light bulbs are sold. Or, at the very least, a hardware store like Tru-Value or Home Base.

Well I'm reaching here---if the bulb did not fracture/break then it sounds like a capacitor popped--check your owners manual for reset button but I don't think there is one for the lighting---In addition if you can see the circuit board--look for burn spot or wet spot. GL

Burning smell and light switch does not work


The controller needs to be repaired. We regularly repair these control board assemblies for only $32.50 nationwide, and that's much cheaper than replacing the board. For safety, disassembly and other info see http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
