Re: oven light will not turn on
Thanks for supplying the model number. I took a quick glance at your unit and the light bulb cover screws off counter clockwise. Once off, change out the light bulb. Placing a damp rag around it allow for a much better grip.

You can look up your ge owners manual at ge.com . If the oven has stopped working chances are you have a bad ignitor. the part number is WB2X9154 . The part is $69.99 and I have this item in stock. Shipping will be $6.50 in the continental US> I hope this will FixYa. If you have more questions please let me know. I can tell you how to remove the old ignitor if needed.

The manual states to turn the cover counter clockwise. I was able to turn it about an inch and then it stopped turning. You really have to apply pressure, but it will turn more. It is similar to a tight light fixture. I was worried about breaking it, but it did finally loosen. I believe the replacement bulb is a 40 watt mini oven bulb also...
Many White-Westinghouse manuals can be found here:
I had the same problem and was able to solve it. They didn't have the exact manual for mine (a KF450G), but they had one that was similar enough (KF580H) to solve this issue. Setting the knobs to clean is only part of the process, to get it to run you need to set the timer.
Read the key information below transcribed from the manual:
To set the controls for the cleaning cycle:
1) Close the oven door.
2) Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day.
3) Be sure the Start Time knob is set for the same time as the clock. If not, turn the knob to the time on the clock. The knob will then pop out.
4) Push in and set the Stop Time knob for 2 to 3 hours past the Start Time.
Example: If the Start Time and Clock read 1:00, set the Stop Time for 3:00 or 4:00.
5) Turn the Temperature Control to CLEAN.
6) Turn the Selector to CLEAN.
If all controls are set correctly, the oven signal light will come on and stay on until the oven reaches its cleaning temperature. It will then cycle on and off.
There is more information in the manual, but it's much too much information to manually transcribe - I've only typed enough for you to get it working. Note that the LOCKED light won't light initially, it only lights once the oven exceeds 550 degrees. Once that light is on, the oven will not reopen until the temperature drops below that point, even if you stop the clean cycle.
Be sure to empty out the storage drawer under the oven before cleaning.
to jenna 12 Does your stove have a stop and start timer? When you set your clock you may have inadvertantly moved the stop or start time on that timer. Check them, if they have knobs for setting the stop and start time, make sure the pointer is pointing to the current time and that the knob is popped out and not stuck in. when you have it right both the stop and the start knob should be out, not pushed in. They will pop out when you turn them to the current time.
These timers allow you to start something cookin at a time delayed several hours. this means they will not allow the oven to come on until it hits that time that you may have set in error.
If your stove has a digital stop and start timer check each one so that both show the current time, then your oven should light.
You were right. The locking mechanism switch somehow became jammed and the oven thought the door was locked, even though I could open the door. I didn't know if I was supposed to take the top off and moving the lever back and forth did not help. Finally I turned the oven on and just kind of jiggled the latch in the unlocked position. I kind of moved it back and forth furiously and the cleaning light stopped blinking and the oven light came on. I'm glad it is working now, but I will be manually cleaning my oven from now on! Thanks for your help.
