Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
My wife changed the bulbs on our microwave with the switch turned on a little while back. One of the bulbs broke while she was removing it. When she tried to remove the bulb base, apparently, she shorted something. Now the lights will not cut off. And, now we're burning through bulbs about every 2 weeks.
Is there a switch or other IC on the circuit board that can be changed out by a do-it-yourselfer?
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.
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 operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too, due to a shorted relay.
