I have a GE...

I have a GE Profile Convection/Microwave oven, Model # JVM1790SK01, and I can barely read the time display or any other entries I make when I use the microwave. The display is on but I want to know if the light behind it is worn out or what. It is very dim and I have to hold up my hand around it to see what it says.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

The exact model is JVM1790 and it is about 10 years old. I had my kitchen remodeled then and bought all GE appliances.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

It depends on what is involved. I do have a son-in-law who might be able to do the repair.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I'm not sure what you mean.
