It sounds like you are talking about the indicators as shown and explained on page 7 of your owner's manual.

The one that looks like windshield wipers (#10) is the microwave indicator. The ones that look like bowls of soup are the High Cook and Low Cook indicators (#24 & 25).

If you don't still have your owner's manual, you can download it here free. You will need the free Adobe Reader to view or print it.

Once you've looked that over, feel free to write back with specific symptoms if you're still having trouble.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Wife was cooking food, she says she heard a big pow and saw a blue light in the MW. Now everytime we turn it on it jumps the breaker. Everything else works fine.


It sounds like the Magnetron that produces the microwave energy that heats the food has failed and shorted out which is triggering the Circuit Breaker due to the overload. You could try taking it to a repair shop, but with the cost of labour and parts these days, it is probably more economical to buy a new oven especially if it more than 5 Yrs old..
