We have a Hotpoint microwave model no. RVM1325WW3 that works fine except for the cooktop lights. I have replaced both bulbs. There was a popping sound which blew both bulbs. Any advice as to what is wrong?
Thanks.
John

The cooktop lights are controlled by the circuit board. Sounds like something on the board got smoked. Remove the board and checke the runs in back for signs of burning-- the problem will probably be visible.
