Answer Karen, It can be a bit difficult to access the bulb 74004458 the oven heat affects the retainers in the housing. 1. Remove power from unit.
2. Open oven door and locate oven light. 3. Grasp lens cover 74004607 and pull outward on one side to gain access to bulb. ( you may need to use a flatbed tool, putty knife or flat blade screwdriver to carefully pry out the lens) 4. Carefully remove old bulb, by lifting bulb straight out of ceramic base. NOTE: To avoid damaging the new bulb and decreasing life of the bulb, do not touch new

Replaced oven light #74004458. It lasted < 2 sec. At $20 + am not willing to 'try again'. What is problem? What is bulb voltage & wattage?
Answer Hi Lorne. As with any electrical device, you will need to work back to the source trying to find a short . A bare wire touching ground (or connection) will cause this. The control board sending a "over voltage" (rarely) but can blow the bulb also. Clock control part # 74009716. You need to carefully inspect and test the bulb socket assy. part # 74009970. If the socket is shorted this will happen also. You will get the globe, socket and the bulbnd wires back to the molex connector. This is not to common of issue. Thank You.
