3. Damaged Wires

If both the light bulb and socket aren’t faulty, the next thing to check is the light socket’s wires. Remove the oven’s back panel and inspect the wires connected to the terminals of the light socket. If there are burns or cuts on the wires, they may be why your Magic Chef oven light won’t turn on. Contact a technician to fix the wires.

4. Touchpad

If the components above aren’t faulty, you should replace the touchpad. Since there is an oven light button on the touchpad, if it stops working, the light won’t turn on when you press it.
