I have a built-in Jenn-Air Gas Range, model SVD48600. The light bulb ceramic socket has cracked and needs to be replaced. It looks like an easy enough repair with the replacement kit. What is the easiest way to access the back on a built-in unit?
ANSWER Hello Jonah,
Turn off the breaker to prevent electrocution. Remove the kick panel and disconnect the downdraft hose on the easiest end to access. Have a friend help lift the unit over the fan motor and move it out far enough to get under it. Be sure to protect the floor before moving the unit to avoid costly damage. From here it's just a matter of removing the appropriate panels and the light socket. You will have to remove the bulb lens and the bulb first. Putting it back is just the opposite, so don't let your friend leave yet!
