Maytag Microwave Repair

Maytag Over the Range Microwave

Light bulbs continuously burning out

Always make sure you disconnect power to your microwave before replacing any light bulb.

If you leave your unit on all the time you will get a lot of heat and develop a socket problem. The socket will not have a good connection after a period of time.

On occasion, the bulb will short or ground and you will end up wiping out the relay that turns on those lights.

If you are not using the manufacturer's direct replacement bulbs the bulb may not work properly or last as long. You can go through a lot of generic bulbs before you end up buying a direct replacement. The manufacturer's light bulbs will have the longest lifespan.
