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 or so.
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, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.
Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Hi, if some pads on the keypad are not working, then you have a failed keypad.
If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
On this model, the cover will have to come off to replace the light bulb. If it's mounted in the wall, it will have to come down.
The installation instructions are nice to have in this case. You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
