Why is the oven light not working?
To avoid personal injury or death, disconnect your appliance from its power source before you start any troubleshooting or repair work. Use caution when working inside any appliance.
The oven light is usually a standard 40 watt appliance bulb. First, remove the cover and check to make sure the bulb is not loose. If it's loose, tighten it. If yours has stopped working completely, change the bulb. If this doesn’t fix the problem, then the problem may be with the door switch on the oven’s frame, the socket itself, or a separate switch by the main controls. If the switch doesn’t work, or only works sometimes, you need to replace it. If your oven has a self-cleaning feature, the oven light may not operate during this time.
