This usually indicates damage to the circuit board of the control unit assembly. We repair these control units nationwide for only $32.50 postpaid. If you decide first to remove or replace the bulbs or check the sockets or wiring, please unplug the microwave first. Failure to do that is usually how the boards get damaged. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your base model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 BUT - I don't recognize NN-2501 as a valid model number. Could you confirm that? Thanks!

SOURCE: how does the vent work?
Under cabinet microwaves generally have two configurations for venting.
1) There is a vent cover plate on the top or rear (sometimes both) of the unit that can be removed and connected to a duct that vents up to the roof. If you do not have such a duct installed then that cover plate should be left on the unit so that it vents in configuration 2.
2) With the external venting ports sealed with the cover plate(s) the microwave simple draws air from the bottom (usually through 1 or 2 grease capture screens) and vents it out thought the front/top of the unit. This configuration isn't very useful as it just blows the air back into the kitchen. Many people don't both using the microwaves blower in this configuration.

SOURCE: exaust vent/ fan very weak
In your duplicate post, you mentioned your model, so here you go:
This is due to poor air flow, either to a blockage or a problem with the internal cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan.
Are the grease filters or charcoal filter clogged?
You may want to check your owner's manual for info on checking the filters. Grease filters can be cleaned, but charcoal filters must be replaced about every 6-12 months.
The installation manual will tel you if there's some error in the installation setup.

Mayny reason. Does it vent outside? If not you are not getting a great amount of air flow. Are you filters clean? Dirty filters will stop max air movement. These are not the best machines for moving air but they sure are great spacemakers. Not sure if this can be fixed by any means other than a true vent hood.

So are you saying that the vent hole doesn't line up with the microwave vent hole? I had a similar problem, it didn't matter since most of the new over the stove microwaves can vent back into the house as an option.
