Just installed Kenmore 52053, with two 40-watt bulbs. One of the bulbs stays on full light, even when the switch is turned to off or to nightlight setting. Any ideas?

The wiring inside the little compartment is done wrong. The light that stays on is hooked to the power wire instead of to the switch lead. I have seen it before. If you did the install you already know but turn off the power to the unit before opening up the wiring compartment. You might have to do some re-wiring with new wire nuts. Follow the leads and make sure they are going from the switch to each light. This is easier than taking the whole thing down and returning it.

My surface light bulb burned out and I replaced it with a new bulb. But now the bulb stays lit and it won't turn off even though I turn it off from the light switch. Please help.


The only fix for it is to either buy another control board $300+ or if you are any good at wiring you can go the the hardware store get a manual toggle switch and install it under the microwave on the right hand side near the control area. But make sure the switch can handle the heat rising from the stove burners. We have about 120 of the microwaves on our properties and 6 of them have this issue. The relay internal switch becomes corroded and binds together from steam and boiling water. GE is JUNK.

What type of bulb should be used on door panel


Hello,

It appears that to be that light bulb is a nightlight type 7 watt 120volt bulb and should be available at Lowe's HomeDepot or just about any hardware store. This is a image of exactly what that bulb looks like. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Incandescent-Light-Bulb/67001316/940528

Elite trio, 795.755 Refrigerator light stays on, getting hot. Refrigerator space warming up to 45 degrees. Pressing in both door switches gives no clue. Both feel smooth.


Some of these Kenmore Elite refrigerators built by LG have a design defect that has been the subject of a class action settlement. The interior lights stay on even if the doors are shut, turning the refrigerator interior into a version of the child's Easy Bake oven toy. There are many cases where plastic interior parts of the refrigerator got so hot they melted. I replaced the 60W incandescent bulbs with 7 Watt LED bulbs just in case. The LED bulbs will not get hot enough to harm anything even if left on indefinitely.
This model also has problems with the wires inside the door (water dispenser side) The wires break inside the door and are not replaceable. I ran new wires through the interior and bypassed the broken wires to avoid buying a whole new door.

Kenmore model # 721.62644200 light bulb over range not working. We think it is a relay on the circuit board but not sure. The push button switch works, gives feedback of being on, off. nightlight etc....


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 so.

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.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.

Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms.

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

Presto Heat Dish: footlight lens


The wattage of the replacement bulb should be 4 watts or less. Don't know the wattage of a C7. It is still safe to use. You could call Presto at 800.877.0441 or find a 4 watt bulb.
