Re: glass light cover removal
Try spraying WD40 onto the glass and bulb holder, try to screw the bulb cover back on first, and then try to unscrew i, it may help if you grasp it with a cloth or similar as you try to unscrew it

If just the bulb, then remove light cover glass lense and then remove oven bulb, bearing in mind some are screwed in and some are pushed in. Send me model number of oven and I can see the bulb fitted for you. David "The Famous Forry"
Take a look at www.espares.co,uk where they have some videos explaining the different fittings....
On some the glass cover unscrews and on others there is a screw and cover plate that needs to be removed..
The instructions state:
1. Ensure the oven is disconnected from the electrical supply.
2. Turn the glass cover anticlockwise.
3. Remove the faulty bulb and replace with the new one.
4. Refit the glass cover.
5. Reconnect to the electrical supply.
I will assume that the ZDQ695 bulb replacement procedure is the same as that for the ZDQ695A. The ZDQ695 uses a 25 W appliance light bulb (300 C). Unplug the appliance before starting. Open the oven and remove the racks for space to work. Insert a flat blade screwdriver between the side of the oven and the glass cover above the bulb. With your hand support the cover and pry it away from the wall of the oven until it releases. Push the top of the cover towards the oven wall and use your fingers to pry the bottom of the cover away from the housing. Then remove the cover. Unscrew the old bulb (counterclockwise) and then remove the bulb. Then screw in the new bulb. Replace the glass cover (position the flange so that it is pointing to the back of the oven) by pushing it into the hole to cover the bulb assembly. Replace the shelves and close the oven door before plugging the oven back in.
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.
I had similar difficulty. This worked for me after 45 mins grief.
I got a heavy duty 1cm wide elastic band (length double was about 14-15cm). This is a common size heavy duty elastic band in the UK.
This elastic band is much too long to go around the glass bulb cover so I tied a knot in it so that i had a complete circle of rubber band tightly held around the bulb cover. Then I used a Mole wrench -a kind of large adjustable spanner - to undo the glass bulb cover. It came off easily because the rubber band gave sufficient grip to undo it. It is about 2.5 full turns anticlockwise to completely free it.
I hope this will help the next viewer of this website.
You may need to remove the glass cover by turning it anti-clockwise. On some models access to the bulb is from outside so the oven has to be slid out of it's housing and an access plate removed.
chek this following steps..
Make sure the bulb is actually burned out. Confirm the oven is plugged in and that a circuit breaker is not tripped.
Look for the manual to determine what size bulb is required. Most use a 40 watt appliance bulb. If you can not find the manual, then buy a bulb to replace it after you take out the old one.
Confirm that the oven is not on. Allow it to cool to room temperature if it has recently been used.
Open the door and use a flashlight to light the area where the bulb is located. Do not put weight on the door itself, but go in at an angle or sideways.
Find the shield or cover over the bulb, gently pull or twist it off. Some glass covers are surrounded by a wire clip or a ring that is screwed in to the back.
Gently remove either the wire clip or ring. Since the cover is most likely glass, be cautious. Unscrew the entire glass cover similar to a jar lid in older versions of ovens. Then repeat process if there is more than one bulb.
