Question about Bosch HBN 3550 Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

Double Oven Bulb is stuck in socket

One of the light bulbs in my Dacor double oven burned out and required replacement. After cutting power and removing the protective glass lens, I tried to remove the old bulb but it doesn't want to come out. I can rotate the buld about a 1/2" but that's about it. what should I do? If I force it the buld will break. Should I spray some WD-40 into the socket or is that a fire risk? Please advise.

    thank you for such a quick and thorough response. I'll give it a shot and let you know how it turns out (excuse the pun).

    I finally got the bulb out. I sprayed the bulb with WD-40, used two-way tape to get a better grip on the bulb, and worked the bulb until it finally freed itself.

The best thing to do is to grip the bulb with a pair of grips with a cloth rond the bulb and try twisting it out that way.
Don't worry if you break the bulb as all you have to do then is twist the remains of the bulb base out with a thin pair of grips..
You can safley spray it with WD40 , it is not a fire risk..

Plz rate my solution,and feel free to leave antycomments.

take the bulb back out and check to see if the prong that hits the bottom of the light bulb is making contact. If that don't work then its most likely going to be a short or a wire problem of some sort...Do all the basics first the work your way down...It should be to hard if your willing to go further if necessary...If not then its time to call the tech...Hope this helps you out..

My E30EW85GPSS double wall oven lights won't turn on. Both ovens heat up but neither oven lights up. Help!

Oven lights burn out just like any other light bulb. If you remove one, you may be able to tell if it's burned out if it is rattling or discolored. They are generally an inexpensive bulb to replace.

Replace light in KEMC378KSS microwave

The oven lights are 12-volt, 5-watt maximum halogen bulbs. They
will come on when the oven door is opened. On double oven
models, both upper and lower lights will come on when either
door is opened. The oven lights will not work during the Self-
Cleaning cycle. When the oven door is closed, press OVEN
LIGHT to turn them on or off.
To Replace:
Before replacing, make sure the oven is off and cool.
1. Disconnect power.
2. Remove glass light cover by grasping the front edge and
pulling away from oven


3. Remove bulb from socket.
4. Replace bulb, replace bulb cover by snapping back into wall.
5. Reconnect power.

Stuck oven light bulb

I use 2 sided tape to get a grip on the bulb. If it is really stuck and you end up breaking it, don't worry as it will be easier to remove the rest of the bulb with a pair of needle nose pliers.
