Unplug the oven. Take a potato and cut it in half. Jam it into the socket as far as you can. Now unscrew the broken socket by turning it counter-clockwise. The potato will form to the inside of the socket and twist it out.

Who to remove the light glob


Presume that a "light glob" is actually a "light globe" or a light bulb for owens.
So looks it's stuck, probably burned in and it's kind of messy to take it out. Turn it OFF, break the bulb and try to unscrew the base with a tong. Take it out in pieces without damaging the socket. This "invasive" procedure worked for me

Have a bulb broken off inside socket in gas oven..cannot remove..need help


power down at the breaker or unplug the oven,then if possible you can remove the lamp cover and shell from the rear oven wall,then most lamp bases have spade terminal connections unplug these remove the whole lamp base with the broken lamp,remove the broken bulb base,then check the center power tab inside the lamp base to make sure it isn't flattened out too much,otherwise carefully bend it upwards to make sure it makes contact with the bulbs base then re-insert the terminal connections and new bulb into the opening at the rear of oven,then replace the bulb,but,do not over tighten new bulb as this leads to non operation due to heating

How to change oven light


Which model Whirlpool range do you have? For most Whirlpool ranges that I have used , the oven light is covered by a screw-on glass cover. When the oven is cool, unplug the range, open the door and turn the cover counter-clockwise (to the left). Then remove the 40W bulb (again counter-clockwise rotation). Replace the bulb with another 40W appliance bulb. Then replace the cover by turning it clockwise until it is tight. Do not over-tighten either the bulb or the cover. Then plug in the power cord for the range. (Unplugging the unit makes sure that you will not get shocked if anything goes wrong. Sometimes the bulb may break in the socket - in that case, use pliers to unscrew the base of the bulb before replacing it with a new bulb.)

Whirlpool has the manuals for most of their appliances on their support site: https://www.whirlpool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchView?catalogId=10561&langId=-1&storeId=10211&krypto=5QgxQhneFliXuEuX564wSQ%3D%3D&ddkey=http:OCManualsLiteratureSearchView .

I hope this helps.

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.

The glas bulb cover at the top of the grill/top oven has broken leaving the glass edge stuck in the thread. I have a replacement but cannot get the old remnants out. Do I have to call an engineer to...


take a wooden stick about the same diameter as the broken bulb; place a washchoth over the end; push the stick into the bulb base in the oven and, turn the stick counter clockwise until it comes out. the stick is an insulator so you won't get shocked and, the cloth grips the bulb base.

Replace oven light


If the metal sleeve that the bulb screws into is damaged, you can go to a local appliance repair shop for a replacement. Be sure to unplug the stove before doing any work on it. you will need the make and model of your oven to make sure you get the right part.
In the future, if the bulb detachs from the base on any light you have, 1) disconnect the power, 2) using a small wooden dowel or the plastic handle of a screwdriver that will fit inside the base, apply enough pressure while turning to remove the base. Good Luck.

Need to replace halogen bulb that illuminates Advantium interior


Mine is installed also, and I've had to replace the bulb twice. I wised up the second time and installed an access hole where I can pull my microwave out about 6" and access the bulb. I use a 35 watt 120v halogen bulb, with a GY 8.6 base, Lowe's part number 15797. If your's is different, the specs will be stamped on the metal beside the reflector when you remove the sheetmetal. You have to remove the microwave completely from the cabinet and remove the sheetmetal case that surrounds the entire unit. You can then access the lamp socket by looking in from the top. The first time, I took out the reflector with the socket. The bulb can be replaced by removing the two small screws adjacent to the socket on top of the reflector. My access port is a hole cut into the top. I cover the hole with a piece of sheetmetal and two sheetmetal screws. Seems to work just fine. If you do decide to cut a hole, do so with the metal enclosure off and away from the microwave to avoid getting any metal shavings into the machine!
Regards! --W/D--

The oven light is out


Facing the head of the bulb...away from the base...turn it counterclockwise....that is..to the left. If you like, use a rubber glove to protect your hands in case it shatters. Use a slight jerking motion to break it free. 
Right when you're trying to remove an old light bulb, it breaks on you, leaving a base stuck inside the socket. Here's how to remove it quickly and safely.
Step1Turn off power to the bulb and unplug the lamp. Step2Put on protective gloves. Step3Grip the metal lip of the bulb with needle-nose pliers. Step4Gently unscrew the bulb base, turning it the same way you would an unbroken bulb. Watch your fingers while turning the bulb base. Sheered glass remnants may still be inside. Step5Remove the bulb base from the socket. Step6Be sure to vacuum up any broken glass from the floor.

Double Oven Bulb is stuck in socket


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..
PLEASE ENSUREN YOU HAVE THE POWER OFF.

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