Oven Light Switch Operation

  • Regardless of serial number, the oven light switch illuminates when the switch is in the On (up) position.
  • The switch remains illuminated regardless of the oven door position. Opening the oven door has no effect on switch illumination.
  • Switch does not illuminate in the Off (down) position.

    • Switch has two individual indicators that illuminate for the corresponding selection only, either On (up) or Cool (down).
    • Only one indicator illuminates at a time. Both indicators should not illuminate at the same time.
    • Switch does not illuminate in the Off (middle) position.
  • Starting with serial number 17211561:
    • Both indicators illuminate regardless of selection, either On (up) or Cool (down).
    • When the oven door opens, the selected switch position remains illuminated, but the non-selected switch position is no longer illuminated.
