It should just turn counterclockwise to come off.  Sometimes it is very hard to turn them.  If you have a strap wrench you could try that.

How do I change the internal lightbulb?

Your owner's manual should show how. No manual, try
My old sears microwave light bulb is in the upper front left hand with bulb top up and socket down but behind a screen. There are screws to remove the upper fan apparatus, which appears to make the side available to extract the bulb. Probably a very special bulb, so I would get one before going to that trouble. It might also be the switch that is bad rather than the bulb. That probably requires removing the outer surrounding cover.

My stove top works but oven and broiler will not heat

Good Afternoon friend, thanks for your post!

I see that your oven and broiler will not work on your Frigidaire range. It could be possible that your elements are bad or the thermostat may have shorted. I would suggest performing a reset on your range and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help resolve your issue you may need to have a professional technician come out to pinpoint the issue within your range. Best of luck! -Matt

Why would there be no heat from frigidair oven elements?

Make sure the oven timer is set properly, if its turned off, the oven will not go on. Also check if the oven has separate fuse, it may have blown.

Why does my oven does not work but top burners are good

Not sure but newer stoves have 4 wires 2 110 and 1 ground and 1 neutral. Older stoves had 2 110 and only 1 ground. The oven sometimes used the ground a sa neutral for little motors, displays, etc. make sure that the third wire on your plug has a good ground and see if that helps

How do I know when my stove is done self cleaning?

to get all the detailed instructions
just click this link directly
The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.

Most ranges today use 3 different types of door is a solenoid controlled lock ( you hear a loud buzz noise when setting or unlocking the lock and has a arm that you must move to set the lock )...another is a heat sensitive lock ( has a arm that you must move to lock and un-lock, makes no noises and has a spring that slowly moves to lock the door will the oven is heating up )...Some locks are motorized ( no handle to move, the motor locks the door by it's self when you set the range for self clean )... If the motorized and heat sensitive locks fails to open after the self clean cycle, you must access the lock and move it yourself to open the door. On the free standing ranges, most times you must lift the cook top to access the lock mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must be pulled out to remove the top access panel to get at the lock mechanism. Some build in ovens can have the control console removed to access the lock system. On the heat sensitive style of lock, there are no electrical parts to operate the lock, usually you will need to replace the lock. On the motorized style of lock, you will have to use a ohm/volt meter to test why the motor will not work. On the solenoid style of lock, the solenoid is often mounted on the back of the range and can be accessed by removing the rear panel, some may be mounted at the front, such as in a built in oven. The failure of the solenoid style of lock is normally caused by a bad lock solenoid. In order to get your door open, you must operate the door latch mechanism manually. Unplug or remove power from the range. Take the rear cover off the range. Locate the door latch assembly and operate it manually and open your door. Then check continuity of the solenoid. Some of the latch assemblies have micro switches to supply power also. You may need to check them. You should be able to get the door open and use your range until you can get a tech to repair if you can not repair yourself.

If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated* switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.

Yes you can make adjustments but you need a thermometer to set it accurately, you can buy them at Wal mart for 4 bucks. You will need to see if the thermal bulb is located in the flame, if not you will have to move it when it's cool. Some units have a screw to adjust the temperature some use a sliding tube to adjust the heat you will need to look at the stove to see. If you have the owners manual it will help, sometimes the thermal bulb goes bad and the temp control has to be replaced.

Oven bulb broke while I was cleaning oven.


This should be pretty easy. Please unplug the oven, or turn it off at the fuse/breaker panel first! Then use a pair of small pliers to grab the center of the remains of the lightbulb and spin it out. If you can't get hold of anything in the center of the bulb, you may have to use a screwdriver to bend the edges of the metal shell away from the socket, just enough that you can grab the edge of it with the pliers to turn it out.

Hope this helps, please rate :)
