Default Loose connectors attached to light bulb socket
Model Number: KGYS750GQ1   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The large white connector that attaches to the light bulb socket is loose. The light bulb only stays lit when I hold the connector. Can I replace the connectors (White and Orange)? What are the part numbers? If not, how do I tighten them? Model #: KGYS750GQ1.

Try squeezing the loose connector so that it fits tightly on the terminal. Unplug the machine first.

I tried squeezing the connector by hand and with tweezers. I don't want to break it. It still loosens up. Can new connectors be purchased?

You gotta use pliers. Yes, replacement connectors are available anywhere you can buy electrec/electronic service parts. You may even find small kits of assorted connectors at Walmart.
