Question about Hotpoint RVM1425 Microwave Oven
I unscrewed one that was burnt out, but all I got was the bulb portion. I must have missed the housing. How to get that out also? I tried unscrewing it, but it won't budge and pushing in and turning, but still to no avail (it's difficult to get under to see what to do, and I don't have the instructions). Thanks!
First of all, please be sure your oven is unplugged!
If the filament shorts, or if the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven, it can cause damage to the controller board reuslitng in lights that don't work or that won't shut off.
But back to your bulb removal problem... They are often tacked in place with hot glue.
If you can heat it up a bit with a hair dryer, it may soften the glue enough that you can unscrew the base with a good pair of needle nose pliers.
It may be helpful to out the tips of the pliers inside the bulb socket, spread the handles apart, then turn while holding the handles out.
Tubular 40-watt bulbs (40T6 1/2 /2), available in supermarkets and hardware stores, may also be used for replacements.
