Default Light Socket & Lens Assembly Replacement
Model Number: KEBS276BWh-O   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I would like to replace the Light socket and lens assembly in my double oven--top oven. How do I get the old assembly out. Do I get a screw driver around the side of the assembly and try to work it out or is there some other way. I would imagine the new assembly has wire connectors on the back and that it merely needs to be pushed into place and some spring metal on the side of the assembly that holds it in place. Thanks for any help you can give me. Pat

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL KEBS276BWH0 | AppliancePartsPros.com

Be sure to shut off the power, 240 volts is lethal.

Trying to force it out will just tighten up the clips.

Here is a service manual, not for your unit but the light socket looks the same.

See page 3-15

Get a small hook, a ground down allen key may work, then try to grab the from the inside of the socket and pull them into the socket to release it.

Hi - I have the same issue on an old KitchenAid KEBS277XBL2 oven, and I've found the new part I need to replace the light socket, but I'm not sure how to get out the old socket without doing damage to the rest of the oven. The link to the service manual PDF listed earlier does not work, so I was wondering if there was another way to get to the service manual. Thanks, -BK

Link still works for me though you will have to force it to go there as it comes up with a certificate error. Put it in as an exception in Firefox or in Explorer tell it to continue to the website.

I tried it on both Firefox and Explorer

I have a built-in oven. Do I have to remove the oven in order to replace the socket? Thanks

Yes you will probably have to remove it.
