Hotpoint RVM1425BA-003 Microwave Oven Stovetop Light Does Not Work

The stovetop lights on my Hotpoint RVM1425BA-003 Microwave oven have stopped working.  I replaced the bulbs with new 25W bulbs (less than the recommended 40W bulb) and nothing happens.  The digital display on the microwave oven states that the light is "on", but still no light.  I made sure the wires were secure & attached.  The microwave oven itself & the oven light ARE working.  Any suggestions?

The problem is almost certainly on the control panel, which we repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inopoerable or stuck on.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and

When the microwave is cooking the light inside dims. When done cooking the light returns to full brightness. Is that normal or is there a problem with the microwave?


I've seen this with most microwave ovens I've had. When the microwave emitter kicks in to cook, the unit uses much more power, providing less to the internal bulb, which dims a bit. Unless it's very dramatic, for example the bulb turning off or going almost out, it's normal behavior. If the bulb is going very dim or out, it could be that the circuit it's connected to isn't providing enough amperage to adequately run the oven. In the case of your microwave, it's rated at 15 amps, so should have adequate power on a standard household circuit by itself.

MAKE this test and fix it. God bless you

  1. Light bulbIf your microwave light bulb is not working, perhaps it has blown. The first step is to replace the bulb and power on the microwave. If this does not correct the issue, the next step is to check the socket and wiring to verify if that is the problem.
  2. Light bulb socket & main control boardIf your microwave light bulb is not working after the installation of a new bulb, check the light socket as well as the wiring to ensure they are properly operating. If these sources are functioning properly, the next step is to check for a faulty control board as a possible root cause to your microwave light bulb malfunction.

Operating interior light of bosch quantum speed microwave oven


Replacing the bulb is not really that tricky, and they only cost a few quid, so definitely worth doing:
1. unplug and take the cover off,
2. remove the two screws at the sides of the control panel, and move the panel out the way,
3. remove the metal plate covering the bulb area (5 screws),
4. squeeze and detach the springy fold of metal holding the bulb,
5. pull off the the bulb's electrical connections
6. unscrew and unhook the bulb, and replace!

My bulb was a 240V 25W T170 with right angled terminals.

Whirlpool Microwave WMH 1163 XVS-0 How do you change the stovetop lightbulb?


Under the stove top should be a small panel the light emits from. One side of it should have a regular Phillips screw. Unscrew it and the panel should open. It is not hinged so you have to carefully work it open. Once open you should be able to see and then unscrew the bulb, I was able to find a replacement at Home Depot. The installed bulb was 40w, but I was only able to find a 25w replacement. Seems to work just fine though. Once replaced, just work the panel back on and screw back in.
