Cool Microwave Vent Light and Fan
Model Number: JVM140K 003   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years

Trying to replace vent light, one broke off in socket. Seems this is a common flaw in GE microwaves, no? Nonetheless, now vent lights and vent fan will not work.
Please tell me what I need to do and the cost involved. I checked Tritonics (your link), and it is impossible to maneuver their site to see if they have a control panel/board.
Thank you for your help!
Happy holidays,
Nigel

If you or someone you know can solder, you can save money by soldering in a piece of wire where the trace is burnt on the back of the board.

Default Yes, I can solder ...

Is this what you ended up doing with regard to your post here of a similar issue? I saw your post in perusing the threads in hopes of finding an answer. If you get this post, please do tell me what was done to solve your problem.
By the way, I got the broken bulb stem out of the socket. If nothing else was learned from this, I've learned to UNPLUG microwave before changing bulbs, something of which I was ignorant (no manual).
Thank you, badfish ... MERRY CHRISTMAS and happy new year.
Best regards,
Nigel

This is what I do for the customers that can't afford the price of a new board.

Default Looking for Mr. Abadfish66 re CONTROL BOARD TRACE REPAIR

I think I posted this on the wrong thread, so I'll have another go at it here, hoping to get an answer from Abadfish66:

Hi, Abadfish69,
Tis I, Nigel. I hope you get this. I found the burnt trace on the reverse side of the circuit board. I have a great photo that I'd like to send, but don't know how to post it here. Nonetheless, you said to use (4) twisted pieces of 16G wire to repair this. 16G???? What is burned out looks like copper foil, about a 1/4" section on the 5-pin vent-blower connector, CON A; the dog-leg bend to the 2nd (or 4th, depending from what end one's counting) pin is burned out. What 16G wire means to me is something that looks like speaker wire. Don't I just need some foil kind of conductor; or might just solder work to bridge the burned-out gap between the existing foil traces in this particular circuit? I would much appreciate some more of your expert help here. Your previous answer was nearly the only answer here that did not advise "send it in," or "your control board is trashed, too bad." I respect that and thank you.
Best,
Nigel

I have a 9yr old ge jvm1631 micro, only the bulbs for the cooktop arent getting pwr. bought the house recently and dont want to spend much on this old unit. dont mind soldering the strands in. havent totally pulled the board out yet. but are you saying that the circuit could be the only issue and not any other components? the resisters with the vent space behind them look like they get hot, maybe that is normal. that would be an easy fix if nothing else is bad. i had wondered before reading this, if the relay could be shot. j.d.
