Question about Dacor Preference RSD30 Gas Kitchen Range

Reposition light socket

I errantly unscrewed the light socket from the oven and pulled it down to better access the broken light bulb.
Now I cannot get the socket to fit back in.
Is there an easy way?
Or, how do I remove the cook top to access the socket from the other side?

    I do not have a light bulb in the socket.

    I am trying to get the socket to fit back into the roof of the oven.

    As I insert it into the opening it hits upon someting that prevents it from entering the last 1/2" inch or so.

    I cannot screm the mounting back to the oven roof.

It probably has to fit into a very narrow offset opening, like a tab into a cereal box. The hard part is getting the fixture up in and flat enough to slide it into position. You probably can't get to it from above. The ovens are normally sealed to prevent fires from going through.

Cooktop light socket needs replacing, bulb broke in it. Socket needs replacing.


make sure the light is off, better yet turn off the breaker

take a potato a little larger than the socket, cut it to size, whatever.. jam it into the broken bulb (carefully), this will allow you to grip the broken bulb safely. turn counter clockwise and whats left of the bulb should unscrew out.. works VERY well

Hello,
You will be needing a Flathead or Phillips screwdriver to perform this task.

Please follow the instructions below:
1. Unplug the microwave oven from the outlet. Wait 20 minutes for the capacitor that is inside the microwave to discharge.
2. Unscrew all the screws around the casing by turning them counterclockwise.
3. Remove the cover by lifting off.
4. Locate the light bulb in the microwave. This will be located on either the right or left side.
5. Unscrew the light bulb by unscrewing counterclockwise. Some light bulbs are held into the socket by two notches; for these you will need to gently push on the bulb and turn counterclockwise to unsecure the bulb, then pull out of the socket.
6. Place your new bulb in the empty socket and secure by turning clockwise until tight, or if the bulb is one with notches on both sides, then guide the notches into the slot on the socket, push gently and turn clockwise until clicked into position.
7. Replace the cover and screw back on. You are now done and may plug back in the microwave.
Good luck.

Replace light bulb on the Neff H7871 combined oven and microwave.


The bulb is positioned at the top of the oven, accessible only from the outside. You'll need to pull off the top and bottom trim strips, remove the bottom trim strip locators, remove 2 fixing screws from the left edge of the oven (with door open), and the 2 fixing screws from behind the top trim strip. The oven should then just slide out. You only need to pull it out 6 inches or so to gain access to the bulb cover. You'll need a T20 driver to remove the cover, then the bulb unscrews as it has an SES fitting. Bob

Fog Light Replacement Hyundai Santa Fe


The above statement is GREAT!!! The wheel-well piece folds down across the area you need to be in. There are 2 screws to undo this part. Push it back and there is a cap that unscrews which holds the wires and socket he is talking about. Unscrew the cap, unscrew the wire and housing. The bulb comes out. You pull the wire harness off and install the new bulb. It has a triangular push-in and it has to go just right so take note of how it comes out. Also, being a halogen light bulb, do not touch the bulb with your hands - the oils will make it explode.

Replacing lightbulb in Sharp R953M combi microwave oven


most microwave ovens built in the last 20 years do not have an
access panel to the light bulb. you must remove the screws on the back of the microwave that hold the outer sleeve in place.
Then pull upward and backward on the sleeve to disengage it
from the front lip of the chassis. the light bulb should be close to the front of the microwave behind the control panel. Some lights
are not unscrewable from the socket, but the socket and bulb
come as an assembly.
