Oven light won't go off

My oven light stays on and we can't turn it off unless we unscrew the bulb. It appears that it is also affecting our ability to initiate the self-cleaning oven feature. Any thoughts?

Oven light bulb burned out-replaced-now won't turn off. GE JBP82 electric range

The activation source switching mechanism may have frozen in the ON position. If you cannot turn it off when pressing the on/off button; the it is stuck ON. Since the ON/OFF is part of the Circuit Board, it cannot be repaired by itself. What you can do is just leave the bulb in the socket and unscrew it (leaving it partway in the socket) until it goes out.

The light bulb burned out in the oven and I don't know how to get the light cover off in order to change it.

from the looks of the diagram for the unit, it seems as if the glass cover might just screw off. Unless there is a wire clip that runs across the lens cover or a metal ringthat runs around the base of it, then I would sayit unscrews. Sometimes they get hard to unscrew,so you might heat the oven to a low temp,like 250 deg and use a potholder or something like the OveGlove to try and unscrew it. If that doesnt work, unfortunately, you may have to call a tech.

Oven wont light unless you turn on a stove eye and


Sound`s to me you need a new hot surface ignitor. Sorry to hear you may have changed the valve & regulator for nothing, but that happen`s quite often when you get the symptom`s you`ve described, I`ve even seen tech`s. do it. The reality is 9 times out of 10 when a hot surface ignition gas/lpg oven won`t light it is the ignitor.

Pick up part number 74007498 for approx. $40 and you`ll be cooking.

Hope that help`s. If so please take a second and rate the solution I provided here at fixya for you.

Good luck.

Oven light

Turn the power off to the oven. Spray around the bulb base / socket with Pam or similar spray cooking oil. Will take several applications. Bulb should free up -- may take a couple of hours for oil to seep into socket far enough to loosen it. Use oil liberally.

I couldn't get my cover off either. My solution was to use a pipe strap wrench, very carefully. Rotate the cap counter clockwise to remove it.
