I do not have the instruction manual for my oven. The light globe has blown and needs replacing but I can't work out how to remove the old globe. There appears to be a cover inside the oven but I have tried turning this to no avail. I don't want to force it in case this is not the way in. Please help.

Hi, W/D here. If your cover is the screw-on type, it takes a little patience to get it off. Try tapping the cover lightly with a rubber/wooden/plastic hammer or similar object. (I have used a wooden meat tenderizer). You don't want to break it. When you tap it, begin unscrewing it as you tap. The globe will move slightly. The tendency when it does move is to try to completely remove the globe, but this will just cause it to jam again. When it gives just a little, rotate the globe back towards the closed position then back towards the opened position, each time working the globe between positions where the globe will jam. What is usually the case is that there is a bit of built up cooking material that gets in between the glass and metal threads, and over a period of time makes into a crusty substance. By working the globe without forcing it, the crust breaks down into a finer material and the globe will come off. Best regards, --W/D--
Remove the fuze or switch off the oven circuit breaker in the electrical meter box to
make sure power is off.
Remove protective glass cover. It usually unscrews. Even tap with a piece of wood.
Unscrew the globe.
If globe has broken it still needs to be unscrewed.
there seems to be a power short to the ilumination globe it would seem its not getting enough power or the globe simply has a short try replacing the globe and if that does not work get a service tech in
Your oven should be wired to a dedicated electrical switch, in your meter box. It has probably just tripped this switch and fused the globe.
remove the globe cover(quater turn anti-clockwise) and globe and reset switch. Of course you need also to set the digital clock, or oven will not work.
If the range or oven is receiving power but doesn't work, the unit may have its own fuse or circuit breaker assembly. This assembly is usually located under the cooktop of the range. In some units, lift the top of the range to gain access to the fuse assembly; or lift the elements, remove the drip pans, and look on the sides of the cabinets. Inside the oven, look to the back to spot the fuse assembly.
If the unit has this additional fuse or breaker system, components such as the oven light, the range heating elements, the timer, and a self-cleaning feature may be separately fused. If these components or features fail to work, don't overlook the possibility that the fuses have blown. To replace a blown fuse, unscrew the old fuse and install a new one of the same type and electrical rating. If the unit has circuit breakers, push the breaker or reset button, which is usually located on the control panel.
