Customer Repair Stories

The Range took forever to achieve the proper heating temperature with an inability to maintain a steady heat

I removed the bottom drawer,unplugged the Range and pulled it out to expose the rear cover panel. Using a nut driver (a screw driver can be used), I removed the rear panel to expose the Thermal fuse located almost dead center in the back of the Range. Unplug the two wires and loosen the screw holding it in position. Replace the thermal fuse, plug the two wires into the new part and replace the rear cover panel. Return the Range to its original position and plug it in. The job is done in less than 30 minutes.

The light socket on your electric range connects the power source to the light bulb. If your oven light is malfunctioning, you may need to replace the light socket. The light socket is located in the back of your range, so in order to access it you will need to remove the back panel. Many of our customers have rated this repair as easy, and it should take less than 15 minutes. Before you begin this repair, make sure to disconnect the power source from your range. This is an OEM part sourced directly from the manufacturer.

Replacing your Whirlpool Range SOCKT-LITE

Customer Repair Stories

Inside brass liner in socket came out when bulb was removed. Apparently had welded itself to the base of the bulb

Removed oven from wall unit and took the back off. Removed the old socket assembly by depressing the ears and forcing unit into the oven. The electrical wires were easily removed since they are spade connections and slip off. They also are different sizes so that there is no chance of erroneously putting them back in an incorrect order. The new unit simply slips in from the front and snaps into place. The most difficult part of the entire process is removing the old unit. A little "friendly persuasion" is required to get the old unit out.

Socket Light had a bad thread

Socket Lite come with clips attached to the outside
of the housing. After you unhook the 3 lead wires
that are attached to the unit. All you have to do is push in on the clips and release the unit. Then you
snap in the new unit. Attach the 3 wire leads, put a
oven bulb in the socket end, and the install the light cover
