The two lights on the underside of my over the stove Sharpe R 1480
Microwave oven started staying on and the switch (button) on the control
panel has no effect of turning them off. I had to unscrew them. Anyone
have a suggestion on how to fix it? Thanks

Replace the switch. If you look, you can find a matching one locally,
including Ace Hardware and Home Depot, or if necessary, some place
like mouser.com. If you don't care, you can use any switch rated 250
watts 110 volts or more.
Things would be a lot better and easier for you if you would use a
news reader and subscribe to a news server, even a free one.
Oh, bummer. Well if that's the case, he should find the wire to the
lights, find a place to drill a hole and find a switch to put in it,
and stop using the original switch. I've never been good at drilling
round holes in sheet metal. Even if I use a center punch, they always
come out triangular, but not so much that they don't work.
By which I mean, it doesn't matter if the keypad won't turn it off.
It might be hard to turn a light on that is off, but there are easy
ways to turn a light OFF that is on. A switch anywhere in the
circuit will do.
