All of the sudden the interior oven light won't shut off, even with the door closed or by pressing the light switch. The oven works great otherwise. Any help appreciated.

Having the same problem with our Whirlpool (RBD306PDZ8) on the lower oven. The door does not close all of the way allowing the light to stay on. My wife has taped velcro to the side of the oven to keep the door shut so the light turns off. This can probably happen with the top oven too as they appear to use the same hinge assembly. I'm going to order new hinges and install them to see if this fixes the issue.

Hope this helps you.

Was thanked: 2 time(s) in 1 post(s)
My Kitchenaid oven light stayed on and oven light button would not turn it of. Instead panel beeps 3 times.

The solution was quite simple and required no dis-assembly (Although I found solution after dis-assembly.)

Problem is that Self cleaning oven lock is partially engaged.

To reset and fix:
1. Pull out on latching mechanism/hook under control panel.
2. Move to your right until interior light turns off. (simulates door closed)
3. Press Self clean button and let lock fully engage.
4. Press cancel to stop Self clean.
5. Close door

Hope this helps someone.

Your advice just saved me from taking half a day off work to wait for a $100+ service call.
Your solution worked like a charm and only took 5 minutes!
Now why couldn't Kitchrn Aid have suggested that solution when I called them?

I'm having the same issue. But my oven won't work at all b/c it thinks the door is open. I had removed the door to add some faux stainless steel film to the front (and so had to take off the handle). Anyways we found out later that we never had to take the entire door off. Now we've gotten everything put back together. Door on and all but we noticed the latch hanging out and light remaining on. We tried the remedy above but no luck. And other suggestions?

firemankurt,

I have Whirlpool model RDB306PDQ14. Without open control panel out at all. I find the latching mechanism/hook under the control panel. I pull out the latching mechanism/hook but it does not move out and move it to the right but the light is still stay on. I believe last night, the power is suddenly outage and I went to the kitchen and I see the light still on. So I try to turn the light button it beeps 3 times but the light still on. The light is on both upper and lower wall oven. Any suggestions please
