So, my LG LMV1683ST microwave over the range light was on and started flickering. I wasn't running the microwave. It made a loud pop sound and I found it blew the led bulb. I replaced it and it still doesn't light up. Also, the fan/vent stopped working, but the microwave still heats, inside light works, and turntable moves. What needs replaced?
Thank you,
Michael

You might have a short at the fan.. possibly even a broken wire touching metal or something.. I would look at the fan first. likely related to the light issue.

Thank you, I'll get out my multimeter and take a look at the fan and for loose wires.

No luck so far. I checked the fuse. I checked the capacitor. No loose wires. Not sure how to test the fan motor though...

well i was more curious about a bare wire or something like that. If you can check and see if there is power to the fan we can see if the fan is bad or if its something else
