Everything works fine but the inside light is out, I do not see that problem listed anywhere?? It is not in the owners manual either it just talks about the cooktop/nightlight. Can anyone help?? Please
First, Unplug the microwave. Remove the top housing or cover from the unit by removing just the screws holding the cover on.Most of the screws will be philips head.Sometimes manufactures will use quarter inch hex or torc head screws.From the rear of the cover, lift up and pull back to remove.CAUTION:BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH ANYTHING IN THE HIGH VOLTAGE SECTION.You can then locate the lamp and replace it.Always use the same wattage lamp when replacing.Remember, when reinstalling the top cover, you must slide the top and side guides into place located at the front inside cover. Use two people if possible, it makes it alot faster.Then reinstall all screws.Do not overtite.Then your ready for use.

If you mean the inside cavity light, I've never heard of one that allowed you to turn it off while cooking. If you're talking about the cooktop lights, they should be selectable. Your owner's manual will cover that.
Good news, even though the electronic controls (circuit boards) are different, the touch pads for the two units are the same. As far as the nomenclature behind the model numbers/letters, this information is rarely known or needed.

We have a similar situation where we were heating food, there is no power. The model #JVM1090 Serial # 912305S. Is there a fuse or reset button, we do have the owner's manual and would like to make the repair if it is simple.
That would be a problem with your primary interlock switch or its mount.
NOTE: 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.

I assume you're talking about the hood fan which ventilates the cook top and blows air through the grille across the top.
If so, it's okay to use the microwave with that not working, but if you boil something on the stove, an external fan is definitely needed to keep mositure from going up into the microwave controls.
If the cooling fan INSIDE the microwave (behind the keypad) is not working, then you do NOT want to run it unit it is fixed.
