Question:

The light went out in my oven and there’s some type of cover over it and I can’t get to it. What do I do?

Jamie
Answer:

Hi Jamie, you should be able to unscrew the cover on the bulb, which will allow you to remove the bulb and replace it. The cover is there to protect the bulb, but should be easily removed. Best of luck with this repair.

Question:

The light in my oven is being finicky and Ive been replacing it often. I believe it is the right one as I checked at the stores when buying it and online. Is there something I should be checking on my oven that could indicate why my bulbs aren’t lasting?

Sheldon
Answer:

Hello Sheldon, if there is not an issue with the voltage, the next thing to check for would be a loose connection at the socket. Also, when installing the new bulb make sure that it is tight to the socket. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Question:

How do i remove the cover so i can replace the light bulb in the refrigerator?

Virginia for model number ARB2214CW
Answer:

Hi Virginia, Thank you for your inquiry. Before beginning any repair, please unplug the refrigerator from the electrical outlet. This should be a fairly easy repair. This should just take a few minutes . You should be able to just flex the light lens that is already in the refrigerator slightly so the tabs come out. This will allow you to take the old light lens out. To put the new light lens in just flex it slightly so the tabs will go into the slots in the refrigerator. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Jose for model number WSF26C2EXY02
Answer:

Hi Jose, Thank you for your question. This bulb is in a few different places. It looks like you would just unscrew it from the sockets. There may be a cover in front of the bulb, you would just have to pop that off to get to the bulb. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

I tried to use a bulb that was 40 watt and had the same size and shape i purchased from a big box store. It burned out almost immediately. I noted that the bulb had a 115v rating. The bulb that was originally burnt out had a 130v rating. Is this the problem. What is the rating on your replacement bulb.

Tom for model number BX22A2L
Answer:

Hi Tom, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately the manufacturer has not given us that information. You may need to use a bulb that is specifically an appliance light bulb. You would be unable to use just a regular light bulb. You could also purchase this bulb and it would work for your appliance. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

The oven light bulb replacement is supposedly ps884734. But the picture of the bulb on your site is not what i have. My bulb does not have a "neck" - it's shorter to fit inside a glass cup in the oven. A bulb with a neck would not fit inside, it would be too tall. Is the picture correct? Is there another part?

Theresa for model number JGB280SEN2SS
Answer:

Hi Theresa, Thank you for your question. According to your manufacturer this is the bulb that will work for your model so it should work with the parts that you have there. The picture is correct. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Gail for model number KFCS22EVMS3
Answer:

Hi Gail, Thank you for your question. If you look at the Freezer Liner Parts diagram underneath your model information on our website, the light is part number 9. It looks like it is on the roof of your freezer cabinet and it is covered by part number 10, the housing. Generally there is one or two screws that you remove and then you should be able to pop off that housing from the roof. Good luck with your repair.

Gas oven stove temperature 125 - 100 degrees below normal

My Hotpoint gas stove was not operating at normal temperature. This was operating in a basic range of 125 - 100 degrees below normal. After going through numerous troubleshooting posts, I came to the conclusion the sensor was my first place to check. I did not want to drop $100 for a sensor if I did not need to, therefore, I decided that I needed to know how many ohms the sensor registered in my stove. The sensor need to be 1100 ohms and after using my digital multi-meter,( Analog meter would do for this job as well) sure enough the sensor did register 1100 ohms. I then started troubleshooting other components such as igniter, gas values, etc... All resulting in everything testing out good. That is what really puzzled me. Other posts of people having similar symptoms as my oven always came back to the sensor as the problem. Then I noticed that the cleaning temperature of the sensor needed to be 2600 ohms or somewhere in that range. Therefore, I heated up the oven and tested the temperature of the heated sensor and my sensor registered 1650 ohms. I concluded that the sensor tested good at room temperature, however when heated up, it was not registering correctly. I took a chance and purchased the senor, installed the sensor, which was quite easy and only reqired removing a few screws inside the stove, removal of back panel, and unconnecting the wire attachments, and the oven now operates as new, and just in time for Thanksgiving. The really great thing was that I was a hero in the eyes of my wife this Thanksgiving.

The door was crocked and wouldn't shut properly

Everything was easy. I read one of your other reviews and it gave me the confidence to try it myself. First i toke off the cap at the top of the door then the three screws. I lifted the door off so i could be sure the cam was my only problem then put the door back on. That took 5 mins. Then I got on the computer and ordered the parts i needed. Two days later the parts arrived and and i took the door off again. Then put the new cam on, applied a litle vasiline, put the door back on and forgot that i ever had a problem. Thanks for the help.

The oven light has been broken forever-i turned on the oven and the element started flaming.

My husband replaced the bake element in moments. We couldn't get the broken light out of the socket because we couldn't locate our needle nose pliers. After a few days I finally got tired waiting and found a small pair of pliers in the house and got the remains of the bulb out and screwed it in, and plugged it in and we're in business!
Never wait for a man to do what you can do yourself!
I was so pleased that ordering the parts on-line was so easy and I didn't have an expensive repair bill to pay!

The light bulb was burned out and the lens cover was damaged.

The lens cover was easy to replace, but the bulb could not be extracted from the hole where the lens cover was (although it was indicated on the Internet that we could). We needed to get inside the dryer, but did not know how. I checked out a book from the library which told how to open the top dryer panel, but that way did not work. After a little more searching on the Internet, I was able to find a website that had FREE appliance repair manuals: http://www.appliancerepair.net/clothes-dryer-repair-5.html and that worked. It told us how to remove the FRONT panel. After removing the FRONT panel, not the TOP, I was able to replace the bulb easily. I was pleased to have been able to do this without calling a technician.

Broken handle, oven temperature problem

I removed the door by opening partially and pulling upward. It was a little heavy and you should make sure you have somewhere to put it. I removed screws and reinstalled the handle into the new door trim that had broken. It gave a great opportunity to clean the oven.
I then unscrewed the temp sensor from inside the oven and removed the back panel of the range to unplug the wires. I plugged in the new wires and tightened the screws.
The light bulb was easy. I pulled off the cover and unscrewed the old and screwed in the new. It was a lot of screwing and unscrewing but 3 easy tasks all the same.

Bottom dishwasher rack kept getting hung up in dishwasher. Oven light burned out, one oven rack missing at time of home purchase.

It was a "snap" to repair diswasher wheels(snapped off the old and replaced witht the new ones) and bumpers(heated them in hot water first so as not to break them before snapping them into place)!

Oven rack simply needed to be placed into the oven.

Hardest part of this project was replacing the light bulb. Removed two screws that held glass lens/metal frame in place. Twisted bulb left to remove it. Glass bulb released itself from the metal base instead of coming out as one piece, so I had to disconnect the power source, then get plastic handeled pliers to remove the metal base that was still inside the socket. Once that was removed, the new bulb was placed into the socket, power was reinstated and "wa-lah!" there was light in the oven again! Hooray!

Bake element bad

Inside oven, remove two screws that hold element to back wall, pull element out three or so inches to get to wire clip connections, unclip wires, remove bad element, put new element in in reverse order of taking out bad element, just that simple. Also this site was so easy to use, plus the shipping time was unbelieveably short, even a company service man couldn't have been that quick, or as reasonable. Thanks a bunch!!

Refrigerator not cooling, freezer thawing but cold.

I removed the back lower panel within the freezer compartment. The cooling fan which draws cold air from the evaporator unit was functioning fine. I then unplugged the unit.
The evaporator unit was frozen in a block of ice. I removed all food contents from both the freezer and the refrigerator, moving them to a back-up refrigerator. I then allowed the radiator to thaw completely overnight. Upon restarting the unit it became cold within an hour thus I new the compressor was fine. I surmised it must be a defrost issue. I then unconnected the defrost heater and thermostat assembly. The device was easy to remove. I then routed the wire of the new assembly on the side of the evaporator unit and clipped the thermostat back onto the cooper feed, plugged the unit into the connection. Next I turned my attention to replacing the adaptive defrost timer. In the top of the refrigerator compartment, I removed the plastic shroud, by sliding back and pushing the plastic clips in. I took out 4 screws holding the unit to the ceiling of the refrigerator. Slowly lowering this, I could see the adaptive defrost timer in the right rear corner. I simply unplugged the unit and replaced with a new unit. I replaced both items although I am unsure which was not working. Refrigerator is working fine now.
