My light bulb went out in my dryer and I bought a regular replacement bulb from home depot and it doesn't work. Does my dryer need a special bulb?

Hello Eric;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

In general all appliances require a special bulb; your oven, refrigerator - the bulbs are designed for the service - extreme hot or extreme cold.
These bulbs are expensive.

I just cleaned my Tappan NF40700643 Automatic Pilotless Ignition gas oven and now the light bulb (bulb is good) the and oven does not get hot .... it does nothing. Help ... I have dinner ready to put in...

if not even the light bulb is working it sounds like the plug is out or the fuse blew,pull the stove out,plug in a hair dryer or something to see if there's any power at the outlet or just go check the fuse or breaker box

I have a westinghouse oven freestyle 662 and i was wondering how to replace the light bulb inside the oven

I had the same problem. I found the glass cover was just too tight to move by hand so after isolating the oven, I used an old cloth and adjustable pliers that could apply more pressure. This worked straight away.
try not to screw it on too tight.

Whirlpool Dryer 3.5 years old has power but will not turn on. Not a breaker problem. has electricity. Drum turns by hand. No noise is heard.

we had a very similar problem on our DLE3777W LG clothes dryer. It would power up normally, all drying options and speed and heat selections behaved normally but when you tried to start the dryer the start button and the time remaining indicator would flash until the unit was turned off. Called LG and Best Buy and they could only tell us to contact a repair shop. But I realized that the light was burned out inside, so I replaced it myself to avoid being charged by the technician I was about to call. The burned out light bulb WAS the problem, as soon as it was replaced the dryer worked perfectly. I think I saved a couple of hundred dollars with a $4 light bulb. I would have been mad to have the technician show up and charge me $120 just to show up, then an hourly rate and then the bulb.

I want to change the light in my microwave. Panasonic nn-p704sw. I took apart the covr and foung the light attached to a plastic scockrt. I tried to unscrew but the bulb was tight. should i apply more...

Typically the bulb will unscrew from the socket. If you can remove the bulb and socket with the wire from the microwave (wire hanging from the microwave) you might be able to get more pressure on the bulb to turn it. Keep in mind that the bulb may have been in the oven for several years and there may be a build of grease on the treads of the bulb so it could be really stuck. Put a cloth towel around the bulb and wear gloves so you don't cut your hand if the bulb were to shatter.

My dryer did the same thing, all the lights worked on front, but the bulb was out inside. All I had to do was to replace the thermal fuse and replace the bulb if you want light. The bulb don't have to work in order to dry clothes
