    I have the same problem with my Bosch oven. The whole light fitting will rock slightly as i turn it but the actual glass cover won't budge. I wouldn't be able to get dish washing liquid into the area of the glass cover that is stuck (eg The thread part of the cover). Help!

Try a adjustable car oil filter wrench (cost a couple of bucks at Wal-Mart). Simply put it around the glass cover and give it a twist. Worked great for me.

How to turn off the oven light when door is closed. My stove is 15 years old

  1. Check all the screws behind the oven door gasket - in place and tight.
  2. Check that the door gasket is installed correctly and with all clips locked into place.
  3. Check the center hinge receiver, all screws are in place for the front chassis support
  4. Check the underside of the range below the center hinge receiver and make sure all 4 screws are tight and in place.
  5. Check that the door hinges are installed correctly & both mounting screws are secure.
  6. Check that the hinge retainers are closed and not blocked by the hinge cover.
  7. Check the top of door liner with a straight edge - make sure the liner is not bowed more than the width of a dime.
  8. Loosen the door panel top screws to a "relaxed" state. Open and close the door and retighten screws.
  9. Check the light/latch switch assembly - if out of position or stuck in incorrect position.
  10. If everything checks out, and oven light still stays on, replace hinges.

Unable to remove light cover inside oven


I'm not familiar with that oven model, but as I have had a similar issue with my Neff oven light, I thought I would give you the benefit of what I had discovered. The light cover in my oven is a round, thick glass cover. The hand book has a graphic showing that the cover is simply twisted with one hand in an anti-clockwise direction as viewed straight onto the cover. No way! The first issue is that the lamp housing is right in a tight corner and getting sufficient grip on the cover is tricky. I put rubber gloves on to increase the grip and resorted to using two hands to exert as much force as I could manage, but it only moved a small amount. I think the movement was only the entire lamp housing moving in the oven wall, rather than any movement of the cover. I tried warming up the oven (not too hot) in the hope that the cover might release due to expansion, but no go. I then wondered if cooking grease / deposits and bonded the cover to the holder; although it appeared reasonable clear. This appears to have been the issue as I applied WD40 to the seam where the glass meets with the lamp housing and left it for a few minutes. It needed a second application, but eventually came free. On inspection, there was only a minor 'varnish' on the glass that appeared to have prevented the two parts from moving. Using WD40 weakened the bond eventually, but it also made the glass incredibly slippery, so gripping the glass cover after application is difficult. I used the rubber gloves and wiped the glass well to remove any residual WD40 prior to attempting to twist the glass cover off.

Unable to remove blown Blanco oven light bulb-stuck fast

I boiled the kettle, added the hot water to a tray and placed it in the oven, shut the door then left it for 10 minutes so it steams up the oven (make sure power is off first). Do the same again. Then get a multi grip spanner and place a kitchen rag over the cover and turn to the left. It does take a bit of force depending on how stiff it is, but the steam will loosen the cover. The steam also cleans the oven quite a bit too!!

I have a Frigidai #RG35HW*1 , the oven won't come on, not on bake, broil, preheat, nothing. But everything else works, the burners, the light, the clock/timmer. Just not the oven. Is it something simple...

evene thought he clock timer is functioning it may still be bad and not operate the oven or broiler.this should be replaced they can cost up to 140.00 dollars.also check to make sure that the elements are good if they are good then they clocktimer does need to be replaced

I replaced the WBX20154 glowbar for my oven as

The model number on a built in oven is usually found on the oven frame, just behind the oven door. (should be a metal tag, or silver sticker) It is NOT LIKELY that the oven valve is bad. (although if you have a self clean model, they would have seperate valves for bake and broil)
When the oven is turned on, there should be 120 volts across the ignitor. You can test the igniter by putting one wire into the left side and one into the right side of a standard recepticle, but you have to be careful with bare wires and the ignitor gets hot very quickly, and stays hot for awhile, so if you try it, be very careful. I'm assuming that your original ignitor was a round one also (not a flat one). It is very important to use the same type as the original.
I suspect you have a poor electical connection. Make sure wires are stripped back about 1/2 inch, then make sure the ceramic wire nuts are tight when installed.

Only one light comes on, nothing works

Your problem is related to incoming power or range internal wiring.
Verify 220 volts to the range. Pay attention to the wire connections being tight especially the neutral wire.

Convection oven no longer works

Could be the fan trying to start, ,if there is a removable cover in the back of the oven, remove it and see if the fan is free to spin, could be a tight bearing , or it could be stuck with a build up of grease.

Unplug your power cord from the socket outlet.
remove the back cover where the power cord connection is housed. visually check the connection, expose wire harness might touches the cover somehow. or the cover was dent that causes the bare wire to touched the cover. correct the dent if any, or tighen loose wire.assemble back cover. Reset your circuit breaker to your Stove because the pop sound might trip off your breaker. That should solve the problem.
