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

Oven light glass cover will not come off. Need to replace bulb.


Easy, go to the garage and get the tool kit. Inside is a device called a hammer. Take the device in your right hand if you are right handed, lift in a backward fashion and thrust forward against the glass cover. Now it will come off.

Have a bulb broken off inside socket in gas oven..cannot remove..need help


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

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.

I have a 30" (76cm)


Most ovens have either a flat piece of glass with clips either side covering the oven light or a round glass knob which unscrews. The glass covers can sometimes be difficult to remove due to heat and fat build up. You can tap the flat glass with a blunt object. You can use multigrips on the glass knob, just be careful.

Can not remove light bulb from whirlpool oven


I had similar difficulty. This worked for me after 45 mins grief.

I got a heavy duty 1cm wide elastic band (length double was about 14-15cm). This is a common size heavy duty elastic band in the UK.

This elastic band is much too long to go around the glass bulb cover so I tied a knot in it so that i had a complete circle of rubber band tightly held around the bulb cover. Then I used a Mole wrench -a kind of large adjustable spanner - to undo the glass bulb cover. It came off easily because the rubber band gave sufficient grip to undo it. It is about 2.5 full turns anticlockwise to completely free it.

I hope this will help the next viewer of this website.

Can't get light bulb out of oven to replace it


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.
