Over the range microwave
« on: February 03, 2009, 04:32:52 PM »

Maytag had problems with vent hoods at one time same issue bulbs not lasting and they came out with a socket kit .Have any techs out there worked on a microwave /range hood for this problem ....any solution ?

Here's what you heard about:

Micro Bulbs

It was not so much the socket we had issues with but the board itself, which powers the lamps. The board was later transformed into a 2-piece affair instead of one board. There was no socket issue that I can recall, or at least none are mentioned when reviewing the Tech Notes on the model..

FYI, these are LG made microwaves :)
