Customer Question
I have a new (purchased...
I have a new (purchased about eight months ago) Whirlpool gas range. The one with the convection oven and fifth burner on top under the dual, whole-top, black cast iron grills. My question is: Why do the oven light bulbs burn out about every six weeks? We don't even use the oven but about four to five times a month. I hope you have an answer for me.
Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.Eich.....

The bulbs certainly shouldn't burn out that frequently. First, make sure you're using an oven bulb and not just a generic bulb. Oven bulbs will have a GOLD screw base. Otherwise they will make a bad connection and fail. Other than that, the bulbs go bad just from bad contact between the socket and the bulb over time so you may want to get some electrical contact grease and rub it over the base of the bulb when you instal the new bulb so it makes better contact.
