Make sure the power is off. Use long nose pliers to grip the edge of the metal and is it's a bayonet cap lamp, push and turn anti clockwise or if it's an Edison screw just turn anti clockwise and screw t out.

How to change headlight lamp drivers side


On the back, engine side of the headlights there is a rectangular plate which allows access to the bulbs (lamps) to remove this there are locking bars, pry these, up and down away from the plate, remove plate.
The headlamp bulb is the larger one and is retained with a spider clip, above the bulb pinch the spider clip and push slightly forward while opening the pinch. The bulb should now be loose with a wiring block attached.
Slide the bulb out of the recess, remove the wiring harness by pulling the block away from the bulb.
You can now replace bulb, which should have a protective sleeve of foam or card protecting the glass, do not touch the glass of the bulb, touching the glass will cause the bulb to blow when it gets hot.
To replace bulb, push spider clip away from recess, while holding the metal part of the bulb remove sleeve and insert bulb into recess, turn the bulb to ensure it has seated flat into recess, refit spider clip over bulb pushing forwards then pinching, refit wiring harness.
Check the lights to ensure bulb is working.

How do i replace the light bulb in my maytag microwave oven. the bulb broke in the socket.


The cooktop light bulb(s) is(are) located on the underside of the microwave oven, and is(are) replaceable. Remove bulb cover screw, and open the bulb cover. Replace bulb, close bulb cover, and secure with screw. Cavity light: The cavity light bulb is located behind the vent grille at the top front of the microwave oven, under the bulb cover, and is replaceable. Remove 2 screws on the vent grille, tilt the grille forward, and lift it out. Open bulb cover and replace bulb. Close bulb cover, replace vent grille, and secure with screws.

Stovetop lamp sockets very brittle and are disintegrating.


In effect (given the unit is wired correctly) without insulation on the socket, you have an exposed neutral wire in your oven -- this is certainly not as dangerous as an exposed hot wire, but does present risks. I recommend replacing the light sockets -- you'll sleep and cook a lot better.

Turn signal bulb broke in socket.


you'll be ok using needle nose pliers and a tin of wd 40 lube. but don't go too crazy with the stuff as it doesn't really like playing with terminals. but in this case use the straw attachment, for in between the outer casing of the bulb an the inner casing of the socket. leave for a couple of minutes then use the needle nose pliers, grip the casing of the bulb, inner and outer, push the bulb in with the pliers and then twist.

Goodluck

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.

MH1150XMQ Lower Light Stopped Working


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Feel free to contact me directly.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Broken bulb


Get yourself a cork from a bottle of wine (wait to drink the wine until after you've removed the bulb!). Now, with the power plug REMOVED from the wall socket, gently but firmly press the cork into the broken bulb. You should now be able to screw the broken bulb out of the socket. If there's not any bulb glass or shards or anything else for the cork to grip, you may need to insert a small pair of pliers into the socket, and with reverse pressure (i.e. pulling the handle apart as opposed to squeezing together) you may be able to remove the bulb. And if that doesn't work, well, keep trying. You just need to be creative. Try using needle nose pliers and grabbing the edge of the bulb socket and gently work to loosen (remember lefty loosy, righty tighty) turning counterclockwise to remove.
