My oven light is good, but it does not light up when I push the control to on. Can you tell me what the problem may be?
Answer Hello George,
You will want to check to make sure that the rocker switch is good. You can do a continuity test to make sure that the switch has continuity when in the on position. If not then replace the switch. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
on indicator does not go off ,switched with surface indicator and on indicator still comes on how do I trouble shoot? I have continuity between 1a and 1b on one burner
Answer David, The "burner on" indicator light is controlled through the infinite (burner) switches. You'll need to chech each switch for a "closed" circuit from L1 to P terminals on all the switches, with the switch in the "off" position, and one wire disconnected from the switch. Whichever switch has the "closed" circuit, is the switch causing the light to stay on. At the burner, terminals 1A to 2A is the element circuit, and should be "closed} at all times. 1B to 2B is the "hot surface" light, and is "closed" when the burner or cooktop is hot.There should not be a circuit between 1B and 1A unless the test was conducted wrong, or an issue in the burner /sensor
