    I have the same problem. Tried GE Appliance bulb which got burnt out in a few hours. Actually turned black. Then we bought a Phillips Appliance bulb which did come on but after some time died. The bulb still looks OK filament wise but will not turn on in either of the sockets provided by GE. For years I have left my oven light on for 5-7 hours to provide warmth for my yougurt culture to grow. I have never had a problem with the bulbs before. Maybe they just don't make the bulbs like they use to or something else is going on? The bulbs we bought have ranged from $2 to $4 each. Is there a specific brand of bulb that has worked for some?

Multiple possibilities.

  • Being used as a night lite. (continuous use)
  • Not using a light bulb designed for use in a oven.
  • Inexpensive bulb. (very low lamp hour rating).
  • Oven door slamming.
  • Over voltage condition.
  • (My favorite) Light bulb swapping Gnomes.
Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating.

With a volt meter you must verify power to the door light switch and the light socket.
You can also unplug the oven and do this with a meter set for continuity.

Oven bulb


i have a ge profile double oven and the glass cover on the top convection oven is held in place by grooves that latch onto the glass dome cover. Just turn the dome so that the handles on the glass dome cover are exposed. I used a flashlight and a screwdriver to push the dome to one side.
