How do we remove the oven light


Usually you just remove the cover if it has one, then unscrew it like any other light bulb. If its broken unplug the oven from the wall plug and carefully work the broken base loose. Pushing 1/2 a potato onto the broken parts of the bulb will help you to remove it. Just make sure the power to the stove is off!

Hi, If you have fuses on the stove have them checked and/or replaced with new ones.
You may have shorted out something when you made it wet.
Also check main power breaker if tripped. 115/230 volt breaker.
Hope that helps.

I tried to change the light bulb in the oven, thought I had the power turned off, I did not. The bulb socket sparked, nothing seemed to happen but now my controls on top of my kitchen aid KESC300 electric...


Hello- Glass bulbs don't make very good handles, do they? Find a good tech to check wiring behind bulb socket. May have burned a connection, and or grounded a wire somewhere. Electric ranges have two 110v circuits that work in combination. One is out. Let me know if info helps- have more if needed- Thanks- ED

Whirlpool SF36 Gas Oven - F3 F2 ERROR above 350 degrees


Unplug the range.
The oven temperature sensor has failed and must be replaced.
Remove the racks. Remove the temperature sensor located up high on the back wall of the oven.
It is a short thin round piece of metal.

How do you change the oven bulb in a GE Profile Convection oven?


Unplug or flip breaker to the range. Remove wire around glass bulb protector by sliding one side out of clip while holding onto glass protector so it doesn't fall into the oven and break. Unscrew old bulb, replace with new one. Hold glass bulb protector over the bulb and hook wire back into its clip. Voila! Back in business. (I didn't unplug it, but discovered that you can't turn off the bulb, so it shines in your eyes while the oven door is open. Also, very stupid thing to do, since the bulb could very easily have broken in my very clumsy hand and given me a bad shock. So do it right, and unplug!)

heating elements are usually good or failed with nothing between so unlikely to be the element. problem probably lies with the thermostat. to check, bypass the thermostat and check the oven gets really hot.
