Major Appliances/Amana stove problem

Question
The oven light on our Amana model ACF3375A stove will not work.  The troubleshot the light socket and all is good there.  There is a red wire on one connector and two white wire on the other connector. I have continuity on the red wire from the socket to the connector that attaches to the circuit board. I have continuity on one white wire from the socket to the connector that attaches to the circuit board. The other white wire branches off and goes under the stove.  I did not check that one. I think I may have a bad switch although it does "beep" when I press it.  Can the switch only be replaced or do you have to change the whole circuit board?  Thanks.

Answer
Sometime the socket swells and the lamp does not screw in all the way anymore.  Test voltage at the back of the socket without the light bulb installed.  Turn it on and tell me what voltage you read.
