Default Stove light on top not lighting
Model Number: jgbp26gej4wh   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years

I'm trying to turn on the stove light on the top portion of the stove I was told it was the switch light #wb24x377, I replaced that and that wasn't the problem. I then was told that it was the transformer that powers the fluorescent bulb and I replaced that and I still have the problem. When I turn on the switch the bulb lights up at both ends and in the center but once the switch is released the bulb goes out. I've replaced the bulb and it wasn't that.

Tbenandi,

Are you holding the button down, long enough(1 or 2 seconds) before you release it ?
Are you sure you have the correct flourescent light starter switch

Part number: AP2024211

Part number: AP2024211


Based on the parts and wiring diagram, You'd have a bad "start" circuit in the new switch, or a loose connection in the wiring from the switch to the bulb receptacles, since there is no "Starter" listed in either diagram.

Good Luck,
