Unfortunately, there is a good chance that when the bulb shorted out, it damaged the control board. The only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. The relays for the fan and the lights are part of the board. The power should always be disconnected when these bulbs are replaced or the board will be damaged. We would have an appliance repair person take a look to see what the deal is with the microwave.

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 in about a week.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a 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 fan can be inoperable or stuck on or no bright, too. Sometimes this will similarly affect the exhaust fan operation, too.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

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

SOURCE: exhaust fan is running constantly, without even

It could be that the fan button is sticking or a contact has welded itself closed therefore its getting power all the time.

Yes it is a fuse issue. Inside the microwave chassis if you follow the power cord to the fuse block there will either be a 15 A or 20A fuse.

The fuse is Item 47 here:

BEFORE you replace the fuse, check the light bulb socket contacts. Most likely when you changed the bulb the side contact was somehow forced onto to bottom contact. Correct that problem first, other wise the fuse will probably blow again.

You can obtain the fuse at most any Appliance Parts source or Hardware outlet.

I have to ask... Does the microwave work but the fan motor does not? If that is the case you could have damaged the relay on the control board.

Your feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Kelly

How do i replace the light bulb in my maytag microwave oven. the bulb broke in the socket.


The cooktop light bulb(s) is(are) located on the underside of the microwave oven, and is(are) replaceable. Remove bulb cover screw, and open the bulb cover. Replace bulb, close bulb cover, and secure with screw. Cavity light: The cavity light bulb is located behind the vent grille at the top front of the microwave oven, under the bulb cover, and is replaceable. Remove 2 screws on the vent grille, tilt the grille forward, and lift it out. Open bulb cover and replace bulb. Close bulb cover, replace vent grille, and secure with screws.

The under unit light burned out and tripped the circuit breaker. Replaced bulb and reset breaker but light doesn't work. I see there is an internal fuse. Could this be the problem as there is no power...


These remarks are not make and model specific.

Did you test the new light bulb?

I would not normally expect a burned out light to trip a breaker.

You may have a blown fuse. I suspect the fuse you see is to protect the oven. If you popped a breaker, you may have blown a fuse. I'd be looking for a short somewhere, maybe in the wire that powers the light, maybe in the hardwire that supplies the oven.

Make sure you turn the power off before you go poking around. And, above all, avoid the silver can inside, it IS lethal.

Let me know if this helps.

My microwave quit working


You have obviously damaged the circuitry. Service is expensive. Unless the unit is under warrantry my advice is to replace the oven. The newer ovens are very reasonable and have great features. Check Home Depot.
