Double oven (lower oven drawer) range with convection. Does this range have a lighted control panel? Looks like it might be glass, is what makes me think it could be lighted.

I know of no GE Profile range with a console panel light.

Console panel light

The newest GE range that I have seen that has the panel light was similar to the white range shown here (not identical).  The upper panel had the same type of overhang at the top and that was where the lamp was located.  The oven controls were in the center, but were not of this variety, and there was a rocker switch to either side of the oven controls.  The left switch was for the oven light, the right for the top light.  The range was labeled 'Spectra' or 'True Temp' or some other typical GE badge.


The black range is a Profile Performance model and MIGHT include a panel light, but the photography is too poor to read any of the markings on the panel.  Again, there would be a switch for each light - oven and top.

Not glass either.

Only the Cafe and Profile slide in ranges have glass oven control panels.
Of course, Monogram as well.
Console lighting went out industry wide about 1995. With a good vent hood or a microwave oven vent, they all have work lighting built in.

Lawrence, I've seen the one you mention that looks like those you posted and has the console light. I saw one on Craigslist that was Profile or Profile Performance and it had a convection oven and the light. This was around 1997 or so, there's one in the GE catalog someone posted awhile back too.

A while back though I saw a Spectra model on Craigslist that looked a bit newer and I'm almost certain it had glass behind the knobs and was lit from behind, either by a flourescent light or LEDs, but I didn't save the picture and I don't think I posted it at the time.

Found One!

Here's one of the models that I've seen.  Probably one of the last ones with a top light.  Not sure how one services that lamp - would have to be from the rear.  By this time GE had also ceased to call these 'work lights' and referred to them as 'night lights' in their literature.
