Question about Dryers

1 Answer

One of my six mercury glass globes will not turn on. We can get it to light by pushing on the base cover, but cannot keep the connection.

The other five are doing great. Perhaps I can order a new base for the globe?

Perhaps calling an electrician would solve this quickly and not unreasonably priced

How to remove a light bulb cap from overlocker sewing machine


There are two ways to do this Agatha, and I have done it both ways.

TURN THE MACHINE OFF AND REMOVE THE PLUG FROM THE WALL SOCKET!!!

Pull the glass globe of the light from the base. Use a dinner knife to push into the bulb base until it grips, release a little and turn anticlockwise.

OR

Pull the glass globe of the light from the base. Use a pair of needle nose pliers and grip the edge of the base between the jars. Whilst maintaining grip, twist the pliers anticlockwise. This will roll the thin base around the pliers, loosen the base in the fitting and make it very easy to unscrew.

Put a little Vaseline or oil on the new bulb threads and don't overtighten it.

Let me know how you get on Agatha by way of COMMENT below my post.

How do you change light globe in simpson evolution 904 oven


The glass cover definitely unscrews anti-clockwise, but mine was impossible to start moving by hand. I used a pair of adjustable pliers and while the glass cover is made out of pretty thick glass, I didn't want to be squeezing it so I set the pliers jaws to exactly the same width as the glass cover. Because the glass cover has 4 bumps set around it, the pliers jammed on them so I was able to unscrew it.
BTW, the globe under the cover is also a screw mount job - if you're looking for a replacement, keep in mind that it has to be a max of 25W.

I cannot remove light cover on ceiling fan to replace globe


There are usually small screws around the outside of the globe that screw into a recess on the globe with a rubber ring around it to keep the screws from hitting the glass.

Bulb replacement 0 how do you get the glass cover off?


Les:

The globe is held on by three metal tension clips holding the globe to the base. To remove the globe, you need to pull down on the globe gently but firmly. Try pulling down on one side and then the other, sort of "wiggling" the globe off. Getting the globe back on can be a bit of a challenge, calling for you to get all three clips aligned in place before pushing the globe back up. A little patience and the job will go smoothly.

Hope this helps. If it does, please leave feedback! That is the only way I know if I am being of assistance or just wasting my time.

Hampton bay ceiling fan , model # 55295


I had the exact same problem. To solve it, I had a friend hold the area of the fan that the globe screws into. I wore rubber dish gloves to get a good grip and pushed up slightly on the globe as I turned counter-clockwise. My friend held the other part and turned clockwise a little as well. It took a lot of pressure for it to finally come loose and then we just turned it about another 90 degrees and the globe slips right out of the groove.

I couldn't believe how hard this was to do.

How to Change light bulb (yes, really...)


If yours is the same as the model 04890 that I looked up on the net, you will unscrew the center nut of the light fixture being carefull to not let the fixture drop to the floor. Once you have the center piece off you will be able to unscrew the bulbs and install new ones. Be carefull and be sure power is off before you do this.
