How To Replace An Oven Light Receptacle by homeguides.sfgate.com
Replacing the oven light receptacle is simpler than replacing a ceiling light fixture in your home because the wiring is connected with a simple harness, also called a plastic wire connector assembly, that clips together. Remove the screws from the oven door with a screwdriver or socket wrench.Insert the screwdriver blade into the slot located on the front of the oven light cover and pry it off.
Pull the old light bulb straight out of the socket to remove it. Gently move aside the fiberglass insulation from the back end of the light socket. Push the interior of the light socket toward the back of the oven, or if the light socket fixture has tabs, pry the locking tabs back with a screwdriver to allow the light socket to be removed from the oven wall. Gently pull the light socket wires and the plastic connector assembly that connects the light wires to the oven wires out of the oven wall. Clip the wire connector of the new light socket wires into the plastic wire connector assembly.Oven lights are used to light up the oven so that you can observe food as it cooks and whenever the oven door is open. When your oven light no longer works and you find that replacing the light bulb won’t turn on, your oven light receptacle needs to be replaced. Grip the door firmly with a hand on each side and pull it up and off the hinges. Cover the end of a flat blade screwdriver with masking tape to protect the light cover from being scratched. Remove the screws located on the back of the oven housing top cover and take it off. If your hand won’t fit around the back end of the light socket, use the end of a screwdriver to gently move the insulation away from the light socket. Remove the light socket by pulling it straight out of the oven wall. Insert the new light socket into the oven wall and push it inside to make the tabs snap into place. Insert the bottom of the oven door back onto its hinges and attach it with the screws you removed.
