There are wires going from the main board to the surface lamp and turntable. They are thin orange, yellow and blue wires. I think the surface lamp is yellow and the turntable wires are orange. You should first try taking the bottom cover off. There are about 8 screws under neath and the bottom cover hinges on the back edge, just let it hang. You can now see the wires. Those wires short to the case where they go through from the main board to the lamps or turntable motor. You now have to move them away form the case. Sometimes they get pinched to the metal cabinet by the lamp socket area. Look for signs of pinched wiring there at the lamp socket or where they go through. Move them away, tape up the bad area.

Surface and night light bulbs


If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the bulb you need is part #AP2029997, made by GE. You can also purchase these bulbs at any hardware store. They are the half sized small base, 40 watt bulbs. If you can't find 40 watt, make sure you use a lower wattage rating. If you have questions, or if the model number is incorrect, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Glass Surface Light Lens Cracks from Halogen lights use


The lights do get very hot, so they must be a sufficient distance from the lens. Was there an instruction sheet with the new lens? You may need to adjust the sockets upward. You might call a local GE-authorized servicer to see. Concerning the vent fan, this is a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95. Details are at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
