Re: oven light always on microswitch on door is bad
You need to slide the oven out of the cutout, just 3-4". Shut the breaker for the unit for the upper oven remove the control panel,2 screws either side. Remove the screws that hold the switch bracket in place,again 2 screws on the side. You can then slide the switch forward and replace it.
If it is the lower oven switch then remove the center trim and do likewise to the switch bracket.

It sounds like the people who changed the elements did not connect them to the correct wires. The thermostat seems to have no effect on the elements, and the light switch seems to have no effect on the light, explain this to them and that you think they fitted the elements directly onto the power input to the device, instead of the correct connections.
to change between fahrenheit and celsius
The temperature is preset at Fahrenheit, but can be changed to
To Change: Press and hold CUSTOM BROIL for 5 seconds. A
tone will sound and “C” will appear on the display. Repeat to
change back to Fahrenheit. To remove, press UPPER OFF,
LOWER OFF or OFF/CANCEL. you can click on the link for guide http://www.ajmadison.com/ajmadison/itemdocs/8300609.pdf
Press and hold the broil button for up to 10 seconds and you see the display will change from the broil temp to "C" after "C" appears release broil button and push clear..if later on want to change it back to "F" do the same
You need to change the "Simmerstat", take the model number to your local electrical parts supplier/parts counter at your local stove retail shop that sells Simpson stoves and ask for one for that model, make sure you get the right one for the position as some control a single element and some control dual elements.
*** TURN OFF THE WALL SWITCH AND ENSURE NO POWER IS APPLIED TO THE STOVE BEFORE PROCEEDING **** Remove the upper back panel of the stove. Swap wire for wire of the old simmerstat to the new one, remove the knob from the old Simmerstat, undo the nut securing the simmerstat in the oven control panel and discard, fit new one, secure, fit knob, fit back panel, turn on wall switch and test.
Some countrys/states require registered electricians perform this task on electrical appliances so you must ensure you can do this legally before you start and take the relevant safety precautions and don't electrocute yourself.
black= 120 volts to ground
red =the other phase of 120 volts to ground
green/bare = ground
you seem to have a 120 volt wiring. you will need to change this wire to the panel from the existing, to # 6/3+ground you will need a 40 amp double pole breaker. THIS VOLTAGE/AMERAGE WILL KILL! If you are not an electician I would recomend hiring one, as, if done wrong the wiring can cause a fire or worse.
I'm figuring you've probably resolved this, since you posted in November (and I've just joined the site today). However, I thought I'd post a solution just in case anyone else surfs in and finds the same problem.
We have the same sort of oven. After the power has been off, the oven won't work until you set the time on the clock. I think it's because of all the automatic timer features.
On ours, you have to press the two buttons with arrows on at the same time as turning the clock dial to change the time.
