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.

Hi I have a stoves 720EF oven and grill, and the light bulbs need replacing. the instructions are not clear enough! It says to grasp the back edge of the light cover and move forward. There aren't any...


As you have found out the covers are made of glass and can get very hot, so don't attempt this if the oven has been on for even a little while. You may not have noticed it but in the centre of the edge of the glass cover facing you when you look in the oven, there is a small recess in the glass adjacent to the oven wall. It is probably covered up by grease etc. It is in the centre about 1cm long and about 3mm deep. You will need a screwdriver ( an old blunt one is best so there is no sharp edges) that just fits into the recess length wise and then twist it. This should start to prise the cover away from the oven wall and then you can get your fingers behind it to pull it away. Note the cut out on the edge of the glas when refitting. This is to allow for the lamp holder. When you put it back, as long as the recess is towards the font of the oven, you should be ok.

I have a siemens electric oven. The bulb has blown and is encased in a glass cover. The intructions say to turn anti-clockwise to remove the cover, but it just won't budge. Ant ideas how I may free it?


The bulb cover is probably gummed up with solidified oven grease and therefore stuck.

The only thing you can try is to turn the power off and spray around the edge of the glass with oven cleaner and leave for a couple of hours in the hope that it will soften and allow you to unscrew it.

Be careful not to get the spray cleaner on to the heating elements.

Can not remove light bulb from whirlpool oven


I had similar difficulty. This worked for me after 45 mins grief.

I got a heavy duty 1cm wide elastic band (length double was about 14-15cm). This is a common size heavy duty elastic band in the UK.

This elastic band is much too long to go around the glass bulb cover so I tied a knot in it so that i had a complete circle of rubber band tightly held around the bulb cover. Then I used a Mole wrench -a kind of large adjustable spanner - to undo the glass bulb cover. It came off easily because the rubber band gave sufficient grip to undo it. It is about 2.5 full turns anticlockwise to completely free it.

I hope this will help the next viewer of this website.

How to replace oven light bulb for beko DC543 electric cooker


hi
You may need to remove the glass cover by turning it anti-clockwise.
On some models access to the bulb is from outside so the oven has to be slid out of it's housing and an access plate removed.

chek this following steps..
Step 1 Make sure the bulb is actually burned out. Confirm the oven is plugged in and that a circuit breaker is not tripped.
  • Step 2 Look for the manual to determine what size bulb is required. Most use a 40 watt appliance bulb. If you can not find the manual, then buy a bulb to replace it after you take out the old one.
  • Step 3 Confirm that the oven is not on. Allow it to cool to room temperature if it has recently been used.
  • Step 4 Open the door and use a flashlight to light the area where the bulb is located. Do not put weight on the door itself, but go in at an angle or sideways.
  • Step 5 Find the shield or cover over the bulb, gently pull or twist it off. Some glass covers are surrounded by a wire clip or a ring that is screwed in to the back.
  • Step 6 Gently remove either the wire clip or ring. Since the cover is most likely glass, be cautious. Unscrew the entire glass cover similar to a jar lid in older versions of ovens. Then repeat process if there is more than one bulb.

    Trying to unscrew bulb cover in a neff oven


    no WD-40, turn of the power, break the bulb and remove the base with pliers. More than likely there is dielectric corrosion between the base and the socket and this makes removal next to impossible

    How do I change the light bulb in the oven


    You can replace the light bulb(s) in your range/oven, though you may need to remove a glass covering or dome to reach it. Most interior oven lights use a universal 40 watt appliance bulb.

    Kenmore oven: glass dome for interior light removal


    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.
