I have a Model SVE47500 Jenn-Air Grill range. I screwed in a new oven light and it lit momentarily with a flash in the socket. I discovered the base of the old bulb had remained in the socket. I removed the base and after cleaning the socket it appeared to be in good condition, and I screwed in a new bulb, but it doesn't work. Is there a fuse in this circuit?
Answer Felix, No, there is no fuse in the oven light circuit. But there is a relay on the relay board 12001689 that supplies 120 VAC to the light assembly 74011278. When the socket arced, you may have damaged a wire to the light socket, or caused the relay internal switch to fail. You'll need to access the back of the range and check the wires for damage , and voltage from the relay board to the light socket with a multi meter.
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!
