I went out and bought a 4 inch strap wrench from LOWE's. I had never heard of one before. After figuring out from the diagram how to use it, I wrapped it around the glass bulb cover and did a counterclockwise twist and off it came. P.S. I'm a girl so I feel pretty good about that project

Switch power off first, get a pair of pliers or grips and wrap a cloth round the jaws of same, then grip the bulb cover with the grips and try to unscrew it that way, do not put too much pressure on glass, as you may break it.
Plz rate my solution.

Unable to remove blown Blanco oven light bulb-stuck fast

I boiled the kettle, added the hot water to a tray and placed it in the oven, shut the door then left it for 10 minutes so it steams up the oven (make sure power is off first). Do the same again. Then get a multi grip spanner and place a kitchen rag over the cover and turn to the left. It does take a bit of force depending on how stiff it is, but the steam will loosen the cover. The steam also cleans the oven quite a bit too!!

I have a siemens electric oven. The bulb has blown and is encased in a glass cover. The intructions say to turn anti-clockwise to remove the cover, but it just won't budge. Ant ideas how I may free it?

The bulb cover is probably gummed up with solidified oven grease and therefore stuck.

The only thing you can try is to turn the power off and spray around the edge of the glass with oven cleaner and leave for a couple of hours in the hope that it will soften and allow you to unscrew it.

Be careful not to get the spray cleaner on to the heating elements.

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

Trying to replace main oven bulb: cover jammed

Try heating it up with a hair dryer or similar if that does not work then you will probably have to break the glass cover.

Pry back the bulb glass cover wire spring and remove glass cover. Use heavy rubber gloves or a plastic bottle opener(piece of serrated soft plastic/rubber) and unscrew counterclockwise.
