Oven light problem

When changing a non working bulb in the oven I noticed the filament seemed ok so tried it in a lamp and it worked. I put it back in the oven and it came on. however when I put the protective cover back on it stops working. I tried this with the new bulb and the old bulb and it repeated every time. Works fine until the protective cover goes back on then stops working all together. What is the issue? Is it ok to use without the cover?

Both oven lights out


Are you buying hi quality oven grade lamps for this purpose that'll take the intense heat inside an oven? I wonder if they're halogen or tungsten filament lamps. Defective solder, frosty joints and/or ring fractures on lamp driving areas of a circuit board ARE indeed capable of causing problems with lamps.

2 out of 3 brake lights dont work


If any light lights up when you apply brakes, then the brake switch is ok. The problem could be a fuse and/or a relay. or the bulbs. Those bulbs are dual filament so one filament could be bad, for stop or tail lights.

Hi I have a stoves 720EF oven and grill, and the light bulbs need replacing. the instructions are not clear enough! It says to grasp the back edge of the light cover and move forward. There aren't any...


As you have found out the covers are made of glass and can get very hot, so don't attempt this if the oven has been on for even a little while. You may not have noticed it but in the centre of the edge of the glass cover facing you when you look in the oven, there is a small recess in the glass adjacent to the oven wall. It is probably covered up by grease etc. It is in the centre about 1cm long and about 3mm deep. You will need a screwdriver ( an old blunt one is best so there is no sharp edges) that just fits into the recess length wise and then twist it. This should start to prise the cover away from the oven wall and then you can get your fingers behind it to pull it away. Note the cut out on the edge of the glas when refitting. This is to allow for the lamp holder. When you put it back, as long as the recess is towards the font of the oven, you should be ok.

Surface lightbulbs changed but now can't turn off lights.


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or two.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

How to change the oven light bulb in a candy f245. Glass cover on inside doesn't seem to undo - moves a bit each way. No apparent access from outside.


The glass cover does come off. Use some latex gloves or non skid material and grasp the lens firmly and turn counter clockwise.

GE Microwave Surface Lights


The control circuits for the cooktop lights and the hood fan are spearate. The problem is indeed with the control unit. It's usually caused by either the filaments shorting when the lamp blows or by removing or installing the bulbs while the oven is still plugged into the power line. We regularly repair these nationwide for $32.50.
