    Has anyone had to replace a stove safety switch? I've got a 2011 37 Canyon and the safety switch, which is pressed in by the counter-top insert to prevent the stove from working with the cover on, is corroded and won't release. I've tried anti-corrosion liquids and prying with no success. I guess I need to change the switch. Based on the pictures, it appears that I have to remove the refrigerator in order to get to the switch. Does anyone have a better idea? Also, does anyone have a suggestion on where I can buy a replacement switch? My search of the web has come up empty. Thanks in advance! IMG_3907.JPG Stove Switch.jpeg Galley.jpeg

    I had to do the same thing on a prior boat, I thought the switch was bad. Once I had the refrigerator out it was easy to access the switch. In my case one of the bayonet connectors had come loose. Replaced all the connectors while I had access and it was good to go. I tie wrapped the stove top wires out of the way prior to reinstalling the fridge.

    Once you access the switch search the internet for any markings on the switch. I have had good luck doing this. The switch is likely a momentary door switch with off when depressed.

    Thanks. I guess I'll pull the fridge and see what I find. I appreciate you taking the time to respond.
