Had the same problem. Ended up removing interior oven panels (sides first then top on model H310B). This is easier than you might think. Could then get a good grip on the light's glass cover and it unscrewed easily.

Unable to remove light cover inside oven


Hi,

I'm not familiar with that oven model, but as I have had a similar issue with my Neff oven light, I thought I would give you the benefit of what I had discovered. The light cover in my oven is a round, thick glass cover. The hand book has a graphic showing that the cover is simply twisted with one hand in an anti-clockwise direction as viewed straight onto the cover. No way! The first issue is that the lamp housing is right in a tight corner and getting sufficient grip on the cover is tricky. I put rubber gloves on to increase the grip and resorted to using two hands to exert as much force as I could manage, but it only moved a small amount. I think the movement was only the entire lamp housing moving in the oven wall, rather than any movement of the cover. I tried warming up the oven (not too hot) in the hope that the cover might release due to expansion, but no go. I then wondered if cooking grease / deposits and bonded the cover to the holder; although it appeared reasonable clear. This appears to have been the issue as I applied WD40 to the seam where the glass meets with the lamp housing and left it for a few minutes. It needed a second application, but eventually came free. On inspection, there was only a minor 'varnish' on the glass that appeared to have prevented the two parts from moving. Using WD40 weakened the bond eventually, but it also made the glass incredibly slippery, so gripping the glass cover after application is difficult. I used the rubber gloves and wiped the glass well to remove any residual WD40 prior to attempting to twist the glass cover off.

Where can i buy new bulbs for the lower section of my oven???


Any good electrical retailer should have oven lamps. They need to be "oven lamps" because of the heat. You may wish to take one out to check its size and rating before you buy. All four lamps in the oven are the same. To get them out, you will need to remove the glass cover. To do this you should see a little lip on the edge of the cover facing you from the front of the oven. Insert a blunt screwdriver or something similar and twist it, that should be all the force that is required. If there is oven grease around the cover it may take a little more effort. There are cut outs on the glass to allow for the bulb. ALSO, don't attempt to do it if the oven has been used because the covers get very hot. When the oven is cold, briefly turn the switch to the first position to put the lights on, without the heating fan. Have a look to see what to do and you should be OK.

Hello Is it possible to remove the glass door panels for cleaning? I can remove the door but I want to clean the glass panels separately. Many thanks Jill


With the door removed, I would suggest to lay it on a flat surface, look at the door around the edges. Normally you can see 2-3 screws around the bottom and 2-3 screws around the top edge. By removing them you can disassemble the door. Be-careful as you disassemble the door, pay close attention to how it can apart to reassemble when your done. This job should not require any special tool other then a screwdriver. Do not force anything back together. This should be about a 30-min job or less depending on the cleaning part on the glass. Go luck.. P.S. - it is glass your dealing with, some of the edges can cut you if handle in the wrong unsafe manner.

I am trying to replace the light bulb in a Miele H326 oven but I cannot remove the glass cover in order to get at the bulb. Can you suggest the best method?


Usually they just screw off, may need a good turn as they can be tight due to the heat. If not then you may need to remove the back panel, usually 4 screws. Otherwise a bit of elbow grease to turn it anti-clockwise.

We have a multifunction freestyle over 698 and want to change the light inside the oven. how do we do this


The glass cover over the bulb should screw off, remove the bulb and replace it with a new one of the correct type. Clean and replace the glass cover. Be careful not to use force which could break the glass and cause an injury. Make sure that the stove main switch is off. (The lamp cover may have a screw type or have a bayonet fitting).

Can NOT remove glass cover to change light in oven Jenn Air W30400P


If it is the round glass cover it should unscrew. It is thick glass so you might need to try more force of tap it with a piece of wood.

Hi, I have a Neff oven Model No B144 2N0GB. The light has blown but I am unable to remove the glass cover to replace the bulb. It appears as if the glass cover has fused into its surround because it...


If the unit is less than two years old, cal 0844 892 8999 and ask for an engineer to come out. Alternatively, put on a pair of marigolds, this will help with the grip and remember that the cover comes of anti-clockwise if you are looking up at it. If you do not want to call an engineer out, call the number above and ask them to post out to you the lamp cover removal tool. Part number 613655.
All the best
