Hopefully someone answered your question by now. If not, the glass bulb cover sticks sometimes, but it does turn counterclockwise. Be firm with it, let it know who's boss. Once you've removed it, you can replace the 40 watt appliance bulb. (The manual suggests you unplug the range or disconnect power for your safety). Good luck.

normally the cover just unscrews but may be difficult if not removed for a long time - large pair of grips will help

make sure the power is OFF. get yourself a flashlight and a small flat blade screwdriver. okay you have to make a small bend in the old light bulb screw area so you can get a pair of needle nose pliers in there to get that out, you need to get right in between the threads of the socket and the old light bulb, just enough room to get a pier of needle nose to turn the old bulb out, be careful take time

I went out and bought a 4 inch strap wrench from LOWE's. I had never heard of one before. After figuring out from the diagram how to use it, I wrapped it around the glass bulb cover and did a counterclockwise twist and off it came. P.S. I'm a girl so I feel pretty good about that project

SOURCE: cant remove glass cover to
I have a Simpson Atlas Mira. Was having a hard time getting the glass cover off too so looked on the net for a solution. Couldn't find one so I persevered and sorted it...
The glass cover has a screw-off thread (like a glass jar) which unscrews anti-clockwise (lefty loosey). I had to give it a good few wiggles and pulls before it would start unscrewing. I also had to use a damp towel to get a proper grip - it's a slippery little bugger - but I got it in the end!
Hope this helps someone - good luck!
