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

WANT T REMOVE BASE OF BROKEN BULB STILL IN SOCKET RANGE


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.

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.

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.

How to change the oven light bulb in a candy f245. Glass cover on inside doesn't seem to undo - moves a bit each way. No apparent access from outside.


The glass cover does come off. Use some latex gloves or non skid material and grasp the lens firmly and turn counter clockwise.

A wire is hanging from the stove top down into the oven with no where to go. The stove is an old gas Kenmore slide-in. Will the house blow up if I use the oven? Any idea what this wire is for?


Are you sure that it is a wire ? It could be the capillary tube that has had the bulb broken off. The t-stat has a hollow tube (capillary) with a bulb on the end that senses the temp in your oven & tells the oven when it reaches the set temp to shut the heat off. The bulb usually is found towards the top of the baking chamber on either side or at the back. If this bulb is broken off, the t-sat needs to be replaced. There should be NO wires inside the oven, all wiring is routed on the outside of the baking chamber & is protected from the heat by a blanket of insulation.

Oven light bulb stuck in socket


You can use a potato (no kidding). Try to press firmly with a potato into the light socket and turn.

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.
