Re: replcing burned out bulb
Either there are screws for removing the bezel or the whole trim pulls downward. on two sides are two long wire spring clips. once out you should be able to swing the bezel out of the way or by pressing the spring wings together disengage it from inside the can.

it is a very course thread that gets bound up with burnt fats
use grips or soak the area with oven cleaner to loosed the carbon up
only use special oven bulbs as normal glass will break from the heat of the oven
Just slide the wire off of the glass lamp housing cover. It should just pop-off to the side. Then carefully remove the glass cover so as not to break it. Next, just remove the light bulb by unscrewing it counter-clockwise.
Screw in the new bulb (any small 40-watt appliance bulb will work,) hold the glass cove in place, then slide the wire back over the glass cover. The wire should be centered over the middle of the glass, towards you.
I hope this may help you if it doesnt have visible screwss etc.
Sometimes the glass lenses are held in place by clips behind them which are not visible.
I am not familiar with your machine but I suspect the lens in thick glass and is slightly 'proud' of the oven side.
You have to have faith that it wont break it, but you have to CAREFULLY lever the lens out of its fitting using something like a blunt screwdriver. Once you get one side started, you will get the idea. The bulb is right behind it.
Here is how I fix this problem in case someon is still looking for an answer:
1. Turn power to hood off at electric panel
2. Remove light diffusers - these are the round glasses under hood covering the light bulbs. Turn the light diffuser counter clock wise to remove
3. Remove the burned out light bulbs
4. Install the new light bulbs
The glass cover over the bulb shouldscrew off, remove the bulb and replace it with a new one of the correct type. Clean and replace the glass cover. Be careful not to use force which could break the glass and cause an injury. Make sure that the stove main switch is off. (The lamp cover may have a screw type or have a bayonet fitting).
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..
Make sure the bulb is actually burned out. Confirm the oven is plugged in and that a circuit breaker is not tripped.
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.
Confirm that the oven is not on. Allow it to cool to room temperature if it has recently been used.
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.
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.
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.
I went out and bought a 4 inch strap wrench from LOWE's. I had never heard of one before. After figuring out from the diagram how to use it, I wrapped it around the glass bulb cover and did a counterclockwise twist and off it came. P.S. I'm a girl so I feel pretty good about that project
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.
