Westinghouse Wall Oven Model POL662S needs new light bulb. Everything I've seen so far says it should twist out anticlockwise, but I cannot get it to budge. Am I missing something?

I was baking something and the oven locked and the broiler came on.
It said F3 or something on the door. We could not get it to go off by
pushing off so we had to turn off the electricity.
The oven needs to be cleaned could that be why?

SOURCE: Amana inside oven light not working.

check the socket assembly.remember Before repairs or testing can begin you must disconnect the electricity at the fuse panel, at the circuit breaker panel, or by pulling the plug. Make sure the power is off before proceeding. ! check the switch Usually the switch will be either on the control panel or inset into the oven door opening. Now you need to gain access to the back of the switch in order to test it. Check your range's operating manual for access and mounting details. Most switches are push-in types, and you can carefully pry them out from their location with a thin-bladed screwdriver.

  1. Once you have gained access to the switch, label and disconnect the wires from the switch's terminals Set your VOM to ohmmeter function and set the range to R X 1. Touch a test lead to each of the two terminals on the switch.
  2. If the contacts of the switch do not make contact in either on or off positions, there will be no continuity in either position. If the switch is shorted, there will be continuity in both positions. In both cases, the switch is defective and must be replaced.
  3. Carefully replace the wires to the correct terminals of the new switch. Now install the new switch in its mounting position. hope this helps. pls appreciate by rating as fixyaa

I had the same problem and worked on it for HOURS! Spray a tiny bit of WD40 on the glass fixture near the back of the oven. Wait a couple minutes and it will finally "give" and turn counter-clock wise. This part was clearly OVERLY tightened by the manufacturer.

Turn the power off to the oven. Spray around the bulb base / socket with Pam or similar spray cooking oil. Will take several applications. Bulb should free up -- may take a couple of hours for oil to seep into socket far enough to loosen it. Use oil liberally.

There are two chrome hinges on the inside. You can remove the screws that hold them in place.
Do you still have this oven?
I'm looking for a thermostat replacement for mine.
Thanks

How do you remove light bulb cover?


Just twist it off. I know that is easier said than done because they can be a pain. But if you turn it hard enough it will come off. I've seen suggestions about putting warm water on it to loosen it, an another said using an oil wrench on it worked like a charm.
Good luck

How to change light in oven westinghouse florentine


Turn off the power to the oven. Grip the glass light cover and turn anti-clockwise. I think the lamp then unscrews.
Replace lamp, turn on power and check if lamp lights up, replace cover twist clockwise to fasten.

There's no heat from my Westinghouse Oven(pol662s). The grill, fan & light all operate correctly, just the oven. I'm guessing it's either a thermostat or element problem. If it's a...


One quick test would be to turn on the bake and shake the element a little. Sometimes the connection burns loose and by shaking the element you may breefly make connection and there would be a little heat. If that does not work you would have to take the element out and check continuity. (Turn the power off!) Next you need to trace the wiring. If you have an old mechanical thermostat you could have a burnt terminal. I forgot, first make sure you have 240 Volt going to the oven. Fans, clocks, lights will work on 120 V. but elements need 240 V.

Turn off at the wall and remove the light cover inside the oven by turning anticlockwise, this may be stiff, I use a well wrung out dishcloth.
You can see the bulb, which should be screwed out of its holder with care, also care when replacing. a I screwed mine in too hard and snapped the holder, but my oven is 5 years old.
Hope that helps

How to replace bulb in #3501 Westinghouse Microwave


If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (most often on the rear or side) and the owner's manual doesn't address it, then disassembly will be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
