Question about Kitchen Ranges

I have awhirlpool range and the light cover will not release

The manual states to turn counter clockwise to remove cover and bulb, but this solution is not working, cover will not move enough to open, we have tried every imagineable idea to remove the cover. the cover appears to have something preventing it from turning further which will not allow the cover to be removed.

Hi,
If this is an old hood present, remove it. First, locate the electrical connection under a cover near the light fixture, and disconnect the wiring by removing the wire nuts and separating the connections. With someone supporting the weight of the hood, loosen (but do not completely remove) the screws that hold it in place. Slip the hood off the supporting screws and set it aside, then remove the screws.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

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.

How do I remove burned out light bulbs from zephyr range hood? What do I replace them with?


What model range hood do you have? To remove most of the bulbs from a Zephyr hood, wait for the bulb to cool after use. Then rotate the bulb counter-clockwise about 60 degrees (less than a quarter turn) and the bulb should drop down. If you have problems turning the bulb, try the glass suction cup that comes with the hood or a rubber/latex glove grip. Sometimes a rubber jar grip will also work.

The one way to find out your range hood bulb may be to remove one and look at the side/back. The bulbs are labeled. Otherwise, check your manual. Zephyr has the manuals for most of their ranges here: http://zephyronline.com/customer_support . Use the drop-down menu to select your model.

Different hoods use different bulbs. For AK6500, 6536, 6542 Cyclone hoods, purchase type: 4OR 14 mini flood light bulbs. For the AK2500, 2536 hoods, you need to purchase type GU 10 halogen bulbs. For the Anzio models, including the ZAN-E30AS, get a GU-10 50W halogen bulb.

I hope this helps.

I have a kenmore glass top stove model # 66595781000 and need to change oven light how do i get the dome off to do this???


Recommended - unplug the oven before starting. The cover on the light should unscrew (turn counter-clockwise). The bulb also comes out by turning it counter-clockwise. Replace with a 40 W appliance bulb and turn clockwise to replace. Then replace the dome by turning it clockwise.

If you are having a problem, check if there is any surface dirt or a cross-threaded piece. If overtightened at some point, it could be hard to remove. Try using a plastic gripper (for opening jars) if you have one. Alternatively, you might try a soft rubber strap wrench - use very carefully. When replacing, make sure to only get the dome hand tight. Overtightening will damage the dome.

I hope this helps.

Need to remove brake light cover to replace brake light bulb


No, you need to pull back the Cardboard trunk liner from behind the light assembly and remove the bulb from the socket. You should have to give it a turn counter clockwise to get the holder to release. If the light cover were removeable you would be able to see the screws from the outside or the release points along the edges.

I cannot remove the oven light cover in my Whirlpool gas range.


Put on a rubber 'serving' glove or dish washing glove and it will give you some traction to grip the glass to turn it

Can't remove bulb cover to install new light bulb. Tried turning counter clockwise - no luck.


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.

Changing oven light bulb


The manual states to turn the cover counter clockwise. I was able to turn it about an inch and then it stopped turning. You really have to apply pressure, but it will turn more. It is similar to a tight light fixture. I was worried about breaking it, but it did finally loosen. I believe the replacement bulb is a 40 watt mini oven bulb also...


Hope this helps!
