My surface light works fine but when in "nightlight" mode, nothing!
I changed buls but discovered that they were single filament
so obviously it's somewhere in the control panel.
Any suggestions? I really use the night light feature as I am a disabled vet and am up and down all night long.

This is a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95.
This is most often caused by the filaments shorting when the bulb blows, or by not disconnecting the microwave from the power line when removing or installing a bulb.

Advantium - Interior Light Operation While Microwaving
The Advantium 240 oven interior (cavity) light will illuminate anytime the door is open.
However, due to the dark tint on the oven door, there is not a light on while cooking since the food would not be visible using the interior lamp. Food may be viewed during a microwave cycle by pressing the Microwave/Oven Light pad.
One of the Upper Level Speedcook lamps will come on for 5 seconds. The Microwave/Oven Light pad can be pressed up to 5 times during a microwave cooking cycle. The limit of 5 times is to prevent excessive heat on microwave cookware from the Speedcook lamp.
The Advantium 120 oven cavity is illuminated anytime the door is opened and while the unit is in the microwave only mode. As a result it will not have the Microwave/Oven Light pad.
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
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.
Sometimes this will also
affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be
inoperable or stuck on too.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your
full model number) for more information & help.

Your Control Key Pad is a circuit with each function and button a switch. The pad on your TV Remote, and Telephone is no different. The Key Pad is failing, It will only get worse. Determine if you can replace the Touch (Key) Pad. Not the Control Circuit, just the Touch Pad. Sometimes you can get it seperate. It connects by a Flex Cable to the Control Circuit.
