My lovely Bride decided to change lightbulbs on the microwave without unpluggin it and wound up blowing out the circuit powering the surface lights and vent fan. I love her very much.

After reading a repair blog on the internet which recommended PartSelect, the problem he described was exactly the same problem I was having, so I ordered the part i.e. SmartBoard. It was delivered in about three days. The blog described exactly how to take the system apart and install the new component. It was so easy, I even impressed my wife. The surface lights and the vent fan now work as when the unit was new. Thanks to PartSelect for all their assistance and also thanks to the repair blog for the astute directions.
