You have to unscrew the small openings on top of the housing where the motor is to access the small nightlight bulbs.

To access the single bulb in the lower globe housing, partially unscrew the three screws holding the globe onto the fan (the ones that have extended slots on their holes), then remove the fourth screw, and rotate the globe so that the vertical slots in the screw holes line up with the screws and the globe can be lowered. It will hang from a safety cable, although that can be disengaged from the hook to remove the globe for cleaning.

To access the lights in the top globe, you will need to unscrew the covers, which are much smaller than one might expect because the bulbs themselves are tiny - night light sized, albeit they are 15w versus 4w or 7w for the typical night light. There are four covers that are about 1.5"x4.5" that are curved around the circumference of the top of the fan motor housing. Each cover also has three circular, 1/2" wire-mesh covered ventilation cut-outs on it. Unscrew the two Phillips head screws on either end of the cover, lift the end that pops up and slide away from the other end, which has tabs locking it into the motor housing. The bulb socket is attached to the cover.

The Miramar is woefully under-illuminated for a large fan designed for a large room - the total 120w is far too low for anything other than accent lighting in our 23'x18' great room. The 60w lower globe bulb is the highest wattage bulb available in the rare intermediate (refrigerator light) size and Home Depot does not even carry those any more, with a 40w bulb being their highest wattage in the size. Try a specialty lighting store or Amazon for 60w bulbs. I was able to find some 25w bulbs from a specialty lighting store that would fit the upper globe housing and still stay under the manufacturer's 190w maximum total for the unit (60 + 4x25w). They take the same socket as the night light bulbs but are maybe 50% longer and are somewhat difficult to fit into the small light opening - it takes a bit of experimenting with angles to lower it in through the opening. On one of the sockets, the electrical cord was too tight to move the socket far enough back to give sufficient room to fit in the longer 25w bulb, so I used a diagonal/wire cutter to snip the plastic zip-tie (NOT the wire itself) that was binding a loop in the electrical wire to free up the wire so I could lift up the cover and socket enough to angle the bulb downward into the cover opening.

How to remove drum light from kenmore electric dryer model 417

The drum light has a protective cover secured by a screw. If you remove the screw and the protective cover, the drum lamp will be exposed. In some models the lamp is a 10 watt candelabra base (looks like a Christmas tree lamp). Unscrew the lamp and screw in the replacement, then reinstall the cover and screw.

New bulbs in chandelier don't work

A light bulb is not a terribly complicated thing. I think you're saying that the bulbs are OK, but they do not seem to function in some of the chandelier sockets. Is that correct?

Assuming the bulbs are not burned out, the only reason this would occur is if they are not making good electrical contact with the socket. The bulb makes contact in two places, on is the threaded base and the other is the metal contact on the base of the bulb. My guess would be they are not threading in quite right and then you're not able to screw them all the way in so the base makes electrical contact.

Before you rate this solution I hope you'll take into account that I'm not paid to do this, I'm just trying to help. I have no idea what you're reaction will be, but I'm really getting tired of getting poor ratings for trying to help...especially when I seem to be the only one who responds on a question.
