If the cook top lamps are both new and neither work then I suspect the problem is with the control board.

The control board is what toggles the lights on or off. Since the bulbs are new I'd suspect the control relay/switch is the problem.

Replacing the bulbs is one thing but checking and replacing the control is not something I suggest you do.

Microwaves are inherently dangerous to service. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is unplugged.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I have the same microwave and I have been having a number of problems with it lately, such as: 1. Periodically blows a circuit in my house during use 2. Asks me to shut door when door is already securely shut 3. Turns off during use at times 4. Sometimes turns on when I shut the door, before I have programmed it It almost seems that it has developed a mind of its ow, although it DOES still heat up & cook. Is this repairable or do I need to start shopping for a replacement? The microwave is about 9 years old. Thank you!

how do i access the fuse for replacement? 72180414500 Kenmore Microwave

A:


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when having trouble with the microwave.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your model number 721.80414500.
 
 I can appreciate wanting to diagnose and repair the microwave yourself, however I strongly recommend against it. We do not give repair information on microwave ovens because they are inherently dangerous to service. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. You need special equipment to work on a microwave starting with an anti-static wrist strap grounded to the microwave to even test components in it. Even minor door repairs and adjustments can cause microwave leakage, and a microwave shielding leakage test MUST be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service.
 
If you have further questions please let me know.
Thanks for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
