Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, thanks for letting us answer your questions. We appreciate your business!
Oops, you removed the screws that held the lamp socket in the wall of the oven.You will need to remove the back of the range and put the socket back in place.Hopefully, you did not do anything but burn the wire terminal. It is possible on some models to damage the computer board, but lets not dwell on that until you get it back together. You will have to look at the terminal and see if it to damaged to reattach the wire. If it is, you will have to purchase a new socket assembly.
let me start by saying you're talking to a girl..... ok, the thing that holds the light bulb, it's a housing that is located on the inside top of my oven and is held in place by 2 screws. when pulled out, 2 wires are connected to the back of it. the light socket and the 2 connectors are fine. however, one of the wires looks almost fried in half. those wires disappear up into the top of the oven.
the girl comment was supposed to let you know that i really don't know what the h*ll i'm talking about..... )-:
I understand, Unfortunately, you will have to get a tool called a nutdriver or a a small socket wrench with a 1/4" socket to remove the back of the machine. I really don't know your level of mechanical ability. Some women are great with tools some like makeup, LOLBut if you of the latter, I am afraid you will have to hire the services of a technician to help you out.
can i send you a picture, just to make sure were discussing the correct thing and also so that you can see this wire. just want you to verify that it is fried and i shouldn't reconnect it.
i can get the back of the stove off, just want to make sure i need to first.
what about that one wire?
just reattach it w/ it looking like that?
Sorry for the delay , I have a network problem.Yes that little spot will not affect the connection.Just slide the wire terminal back on the connections and reassemble
You were very lucky that there was so little damage. Don't worry about reconnecting the wire, it will work just fine.
