Depending if there is burnt on grease will prevent the cover from coming off if you take and tap lightly in the direction it would come off (counter clockwise) it will start to move

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.

What is the procedure to change a burned out break light on my 1997 lexus LS 400?


Look in the trunk for the plastic access panels. Remove the side that has the burnt out bulb. Locate the bulb holder that holds the burnt out bulb. Grasp it in one hand and turn it counter clockwise until it becomes loose enough to remove it. Once you have it out, remove the bad bulb and insert the new one. You will have to push in on the bulb and turn it a little counter clockwise to get it lined up to slide out. Assembly is the reverse of what you just did.

Oven light is out and I can't get the glass bulb cover off to change the bulb. I have tried heating the oven, also using WD-40 but it won't budge.


try wearing a pair of rubber clothes and if looking up at the cover, ensure you are turning the cover counter clockwise.
If you have used wd40 ensure you remove all residue before using the oven as there is a chance it could ignite.

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.

I couldn't get my cover off either. My solution was to use a pipe strap wrench, very carefully. Rotate the cap counter clockwise to remove it.

Oven light will not turn on


Thanks for supplying the model number. I took a quick glance at your unit and the light bulb cover screws off counter clockwise. Once off, change out the light bulb. Placing a damp rag around it allow for a much better grip.

If I can help further, I am here....
