These instructions apply to my GE Profile JBP90 but other brands and models are similar.

1. DISCONNECT THE UNIT FROM ITS ELECTRICAL POWER SOURCE!
CONFIRM POWER IS DISCONNECTED BY OBSERVING DISPLAY GOING DARK
In your case this may mean turning off the 220V double circuit breaker or unplugging the unit cord from its power outlet.
2. Open the oven door
3. Remove the two screws under the front edge of the stove cooktop on the far left and right
4. Gently raise the cooktop 4 or 5 inches and prop it open with a small cardboard box
5. Find the door switch wire and gently pull the switch connector off
6. Remove the switch by squeezing the two metal spring tabs toward the switch and pushing the switch out toward the front
7. Inspect the switch. If its like mine, it may look a little melted and smell burnt.
8. Find a new switch online or at your nearest parts distributer

9. Installation is the reverse of above steps.

Good Luck!

Can oven door be removed? Will light in oven turn on when door is closed?


Nearly always yes, very easily. Well they were put on weren't they :>)

For drop down doors, open half way and lift the door off upwards.

Now I re-read the questions, you talk about a 'light going off when the door is closed'. Now I think you are talking 'microwave ovens? The answer is firmly NO where a microwave is concerned.

Range Oven lights are always operated by a switch so you have to option of when to switch on and off. Useful for seeing how food is cooking without opening the door and useful for see inside the oven when you are cleaning it with the door open.

I have a Kitchen Aid range model KGST307GBS0. The


The door light switch was broken (upper right face of oven). The door switch is automatically activated when the door is opened to turn on the oven light. When the door is closed the switch is depressed to turn off the light. It seems the switch position is detected by the oven and if it is in the open position it will not allow the oven to function properly (reach temperature or allow the cleaning cycle to run). I temporarily locked the broken switch in the closed position, which allows the oven to function. A new switch was ordered for replacement.

Oven light won't shut off


Ok we must have broken the button when the door was being put back on...this can be checked with a multi meter...check it for condinuity when the button is pressed if you have condinuity the botton is bad...replace it...if you don't have a multi meter you can take terminals off switch..wrap them with electrical tape and power the oven back on..if light goes out it's the switch...you can also just change the switch..they are inexpencive.

feel free to comment again if you have any other questions.

Oven door locked in the OPEN position.


Hold the oven light switch (push in by hand) reselect clean let the cycle start for a couple minutes then push cancel. you have to continue to hold the light switch the hole time. If you have a light switch on the control panel it's not that one it's the one that the oven door engages. If this fails unplug the stove and plug unit back in 5 minutes later again hold the door switch (push in). good luck
