That's a problem on the circuit board which can be repaired simply and inexpensively.

A YouTube video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes, is here.

The problem is likely on the control panel, which we repair nationwide 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 often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inopoerable or stuck on.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and

Same thing happened to us. We just came back from Sears, where we bought another. Just for giggles, my wife suggested unplugging the old one and plugging it back in again. It works now. New one's going back to the store.

SOURCE: All lights went out and no buttons will work.

the protection circuit has operated, this is not uncommon on microwaves. the fuse is inside the unit and therefore require dismantling. replace fuse and all should be fine, if it blows again then you have a more serious problems

You should be able to match up your old one to a generic replacement at a place like Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.

If not, see this link. Look those part numbers up there and here.

I replaced the light bulb under the unit on my microwave and went to turn it on and it tripped the circuit breaker and smoked the control panel. The only fuse in the unit is still good. Any thoughts?


< - Please let me know your full model number from the tag on the unit and I can can give you the repair information you need.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

Microwave Cooktop / Night Light not working


I would check the door switches with a digital meter, set to ohms, disconnect one wire from switch and test for open and short by pressing door switch, if you hit one that tests the same when pressing and releasing, switch should be replaced.

I replaced the outside/night lights on my Kenmore microwave and the lights stay on. They are 3 settings, high, night and off and they do not cycle through, they are always on and won't shut off


This is a shorted relay on the control circuit board, which we normally repair for $39.95 nationwide.

Microwave PLMVZ169 GCB night light push button does not work. Replace the light bulb. Push button still does not work. The work light does when I push the night light it stays on. Just wondering how to...


Q - While trying to change the light bulb on the oven, the bulb broke. When it did, it threw the circuit breaker and the whole oven went out. After resetting the breaker, everything on the oven works except there is no power to either light socket. Any ideas or suggestions on what to replace?
A - You tried to change the light bulbs with the power still on.....tsk tsk!!
Hate to say this....but probably blew out part of the circuit on the smart board ( the brains behind the key panel you touch ) when the short blew. The light relay on the smart board may have been damaged but 9 out of 10 times when I check them, the board itself is damaged.
check out this problem.
please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.thanks,

Down lights/night light not working


I'll do my best w/out model#... remove 2 screws top of the air vent grill to remove grill.. remove 1 screw at top of touch pad.. you will see maybe 2 or 3 diff fuse area...thats how you get to the fuse for your question.. but I think the relay in your control for the light is bad. unforturnately you have to replace the whole board (in most over the range micro) good luck.. mike

Cooktop Light / Night light


It is the control panel. You can actually just replace the circuit board on the control panel and it should fix this.
