My microwave (GE JVM3160RF2SS) works but I can't get the panel to light up and don't see a switch.

Any ideas?

not talking about surface light talking about the control panel light so i can see the buttons to push have to turn kitchen lights on high to use this product

I have the same problem and I have talked to numerous GE people and they have no solution to the problem. Their only response is basically that is the way it is. I'm not happy with their response. They should provide a solution.

Obviously, flawed design by the same person that fashioned the Titanic

Totally agree. Microwave looks nice and is running well BUT is extremely hard to operate when you can't see the display.

Panel display impossible to see . My last GE product.

Their stock price reflects the company downward spiral.

Hi,

There is a button on the control panel, according to the user guide for your model, called Surface Light. Press once for a bright light, twice for a night light and then a third time to turn it off. Here is a link to the user guide, scroll to page 18. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdir...

If you are talking about the interior light in the oven, this comes on when the oven starts and you should be able, with the oven unplugged, to safely remove and replace it. Here is the link for the lamp, scroll down to No.158 Microwave Light Bulb Incandescent 30W GE Part no.WB23X10029

I think the concern was the same as mine. Talking about a light for control panel. I have to use a flashlight to see the settings. Big fail!

Big Fail is right - no light on the control panel is ridiculous!

Bill fail is an understatement

I am visiting my sister who has a GE Model PVM9215SKISS, purchased in March 2017. She has the same annoying issue, that you can hardly see the control panel buttons, unless you turn the ceiling light on or use a flashlight. How difficult would it be for the manufacture to include a backlit display?

I have the same problem. I can't imagine that they made a panel that you can't see. I have called the store, GE and talked with numerous people and they don't recognize it as a problem. Very frustrating

LG is no different. Since you can't turn them on in the store, we didn't realize the display wouldn't light up. Very disappointing! Absolutely absurd to leave that feature out! Have to have an overhead light on to read my control panel... Seriously? Whoever designed these has never used one!

GE should make a template on thin film with brighter lettering to place over microwave panel & send to all owners.. It is a terrible flaw.

Not having a backlit control panel is absurd. We just replaced our Refrigerator, stove, dishwasher & Microwave with the GE Slate series. The Dishwasher panel is lit up like a Christmas tree & VERY easy to see. The Stove & Microwave have NO back lighting on ANY buttons. They are impossible to see without full overhead lights or a flashlight.. Seriously disappointed in GE. What an easy fix for this company that they are too stupid? Blind? Lazy? too address & correct. Will not keep these appliances long, and will make sure everyone I know does not purchase them.
