Most Frequent Causes for Oven light is out

For the most accurate results, enter your model number.


Cause 1Light Assembly

If the oven light is out, the entire light assembly may need to be replaced. Often the light assembly components are not sold separately.

Parts
Cause 2Light Bulb

To determine if the light bulb has burned out, use a multimeter to test it for continuity, or install the bulb into an identical socket to test it.

Parts
Cause 3Light Socket

Use a multimeter to test for power to the light socket. If the light socket is getting power, but the oven light won’t work, this indicates that the light socket is defective. If the light socket is defective, replace it.

Parts
Cause 4Light Switch

To determine if the light switch is defective, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If the light switch does not have continuity, replace it.

Parts
Cause 5Touchpad and Control Panel

The touchpad and control panel regulate the power supply to all of the oven components, including the oven light. If the touchpad and control panel assembly is defective, it won’t signal the oven control board to turn on the oven light. However, this is rarely the case. First, test the light bulb and socket. If the light bulb and socket are not defective, the touchpad and control panel assembly might be at fault.

Parts
Cause 6Touchpad

The touchpad has a button that controls the oven light. If this button is defective, the touchpad won’t signal the oven control board to turn on the oven light. However, this is rarely the case. First test the light bulb, socket, and switch. If none of these components is defective, the touchpad might be at fault.

Parts
Cause 7Transformer

The transformer might be defective. However, this is rarely the case. First check the light bulb, socket, and light switch. If none of these components is defective, the transformer might be at fault. The transformer is not repairable—if the transformer is defective, you must replace it.
