Question about Kenmore 62642 / 62644 / 62649 Microwave Oven
My "nightlight" does not come on. You can see the display change, microwave beeps when buttons pushed and I think I can even hear a relay click, but no power at bulb sockets. You mentioned a "controller" that you replace for 39.95. I am not able to locate that part. Would you please advise?
We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel assembly, 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.
