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!

How do I change the light bulb in my Whirlpool range oven - model RF262LXSQ 2 - I've tried unsuccessfully to turn the lense in either direction, I'm afraid if I try harder I'll break it.


Re: Difficult to get protective cover off of oven light.
I had the same problem until I out on a rubber kitchen glove.
The adhesive properties of the glove allowed me to turn it off with no problems, but only after I messed with it for 15 minutes prior to noticeing a pair of kitchen gloves under our sink.

I hope this helps someone else. Kevin Gildart

How do I change the oven light bulb on my Whirlpool Super Capacity 465 Gas Stove. There is a cover over the bulb that won't budge what do I do?


ok its been a long time since ive seen this model
but if i remember correctly, that cover pulls out, it does not screw out, sometimes it can be loosened a bit by warming the oven to about 100 degrees, this will swell the metal ring that is the clip for the bulb cover

Ge oven model xl44. my oven will not lite, the broiler works fine.


Hi..

You need to do this

  • Replace the bulb
  • Test the switch
The interior oven light in most ovens is a standard 40 watt appliance bulb. Often, to change the bulb, you first need to remove a shield or glass dome. If the bulb isn't burned out, the problem may be with the switch on the oven door frame. If the switch works poorly, intermittently, or not at all, you need to replace it.

When an indicator light has stopped working, you may be able to replace just the bulb--but you usually have to replace the entire light assembly. Alternatively, there could be a problem with your burner sensor (stuck open or closed) or your indicator light circuit.


Good luck !!

Oven light exploded and seems fused in socket


I was able to remove the base from the socket by inserting pliers and opening them so that they pressed against the inner sides of the base and then turning while exerting pressure.
