Hi, If there are no metal fasteners on or around the bulb to holld it in, it will need to be twisted. Try and put a towel on the lens to help you get a better grip.
It sometimes take a great amount of force to turn the lens.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

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.

Remove the screw from the lens cover and open lens. Turn light bulb counter clockwise and remove. Repeat this on other side. The bulbs or 40W appliance bulbs. Take the old one with you to hardware store to match it up. Reverse your steps to put new ones in.

Oven light is out and I can't get the glass bulb cover off to change the bulb. I have tried heating the oven, also using WD-40 but it won't budge.


try wearing a pair of rubber clothes and if looking up at the cover, ensure you are turning the cover counter clockwise.
If you have used wd40 ensure you remove all residue before using the oven as there is a chance it could ignite.

Changing headlight on 2006 VW passat


Hello, to change the headlight on your passat, follow this steps:


1. Pull off the air intake cover, and remove the intake mounting bolt and set the intake hose aside,(passenger side only).


2. Twist off the protective cover from the back of the headlight assembly. Press the tab to pull off the electrical connector.

3. Turn the bulb socket counter clockwise to unlatch, and then slip it away from the assembly.

4. Turn the old bulb counter clockwise to release from the socket .Install the new bulb by turning it clockwise. Hold the plastic base of the new bulb when installing . Touching the glass can cause it to prematurely fail.

5. Insert the module and turn it clockwise to lock it in the assembly. Reattach the electrical connector and twist the protective rubber cover unto the back of the assembly .

6. Reattach the intake hose (passenger side only) and tighten the bolt. Snap the plastic intake cover back on.

Thanks

The light cover over our Whirl pool gas oven will not turn counter clockwise for removal so we can change the light bulb that has burnt out.


depending if there is burnt on grease will prevent the cover from coming off if you take and tap lightly in the direction it would come off (counter clockwise) it will start to move

Trying to unscrew bulb cover in a neff oven


no WD-40, turn of the power, break the bulb and remove the base with pliers. More than likely there is dielectric corrosion between the base and the socket and this makes removal next to impossible
