In Topic: GE Over the Range Microwave (JVM1840DWW)

Well, I used the OEM replacement bulb, not the GE branded bulb from the local appliance parts place (not a HD/Lowes, just appliance parts), we looked up the p/n (WB36X10003) from my GE microwave manual.  The bulb looked identical to the original bulb (not the Lowes bulb) and was a 130 volt bulb.  I can check to see if there is a brand name on it. Are you suggesting that I should purchase the official GE branded bulb, I'm somewhat skeptical as I doubt GE makes the bulb these days.  Thanks for input.

Hi,

 

Originally put this in the small appliance forum, but realized these seem to be covered in the kitchen appliance forum, sorry for what might be a double post.

 

I've been searching around and can't find much on this one.  My over the range microwave surface light bulb burned out a few weeks back.  No big deal, over to Lowes, a new 40 watt bulb and 4 bucks later, done.  That bulb lasted about a month.  

 

OK, maybe it wasn't quite the right bulb, over to the appliance parts place and they have a GE brand bulb for 15 beans and an aftermarket one for 7 beans, these guys are generally good, so I take the 7 buck one and off I  go (as I know the GE one is junk anyhow).  The guy warned that there could be a problem with this unit.  Well that bulb lasted 4 days.

 

Anyone seen this before?  Microwave makes microwaves, and fan works on both speeds, sure is annoying with no light.  My latest bulb was a 130 volt bulb, seems like something is wrong with the unit somewhere.

 

As always, any tips are appreciated.

 

Mike

OK, it was a 130 volt, 40 watt bulb that lasted 4 days, something is messed up here.

Yes, it is a screw base bulb, small base I think.  Searching around I don't see this anywhere.

 

I have not taken anything apart, but the entire bulb holder/fixture seems pretty flimsy.  Thinking I'll at least stick my meter in there and see what voltage this thing is sending to that socket, maybe that will provide a hint.  Will see what I can learn.  Thanks for the input.


In Topic: Thermador RDFS30Q XLO Burners Don't Light (S/N 96100089)

OK men I'm back.

 

1 new simmer controller and 2 new pots to match the new simmer controller and it works perfectly.  Although I usually work with Thermador as in the past they have been really helpful, the current situation for older stuff is apparently of no concern to them at this time.  Took about an hour and a half to swap things out.

 

Repair Clinic dudes shipped parts like instantly and I got them yesterday, even though they were scheduled for Monday delivery.  These guy are good.  I usually call Thermador for this stuff, but the phone operator seemed to know nothing and they would not let me talk to tech, so the heck with them. 

 

Thanks for all the help, you guys rock.
