AEG Oven Light Stays On — How To Fix

If your AEG oven light won’t turn off, it may be because the door isn’t properly closed. Make sure that the door is closed completely.

AEG Oven Light Bulb Keeps Blowing — Causes And Solutions

Below, we have listed the possible reasons why your AEG oven light bulb keeps blowing and what to do about them.

1. Loose Connection

If your AEG oven light bulb keeps blowing, it may be because it’s loosely fitted. Turn the oven off and remove the light cover. Check if the light bulb is loose in the socket. If the bulb isn’t tightly fitted, screw it into place. However, make sure you don’t overtighten it as that could cause some other problems. If your light bulb is properly fitted but it keeps blowing, keep reading.

2. Wrong Bulb

You may think that all bulbs work with all ovens, but, this isn’t true. If the bulb you get for your oven is the wrong kind, it will keep blowing or burning out. Check the owner’s manual to know the recommended bulb for your oven. If you are using the wrong type, replace the bulb. However, if you are using the right bulb but it keeps blowing, there are larger electrical issues. Contact a technician to identify and fix the problem.
