How do I remove the light bulb so it can be replaced?
Answer Hello Orvie,
The bulb cover unscrews to expose the bulb. It will tend to seize from the expansion and contraction of the materials from the operating temperatures in the bake compartment, so it may be necessary to use a rubber bottle opener for grip to get it unscrewed.
The light bulb was working fine, then died, so we suspected that it simply burned out. When we removed the bulb, it appeared burned out, purchased a standard 40 watt appliance bulb, with screw in threads, as pictured on this site. The new bulb doesn't work. So I will purchase another, as this is one I had on hand. My question, is if it still doesn't work, where else could the problem exist?
Answer Hello Rebecca. Make sure the light socket is not damaged. If it is good, then the door switch may be bad.
The light bulb in the refrigerator section flashed and the glass separated from the base. I don't think I can get the base unscrewed without removing the whole light fixture. I tried with needle nose pliers. No luck. How do I remove the fixture?
Answer Hello Mary,
You will need to remove the screws that thread straight up towards the ceiling that retains the control cover. This will lower down to provide access to the light socket. Be very careful with the socket 61001772 since it is no longer available and no satisfactory substitution has been provided by the manufacturer.

Light bulb keeps burning out. Do I need a new unit for the light bulb.
If the light bulbs keep burning out then it would be a good choice to check the voltage to the light socket. If there is over 120 vac then the main pcb would be the issue.

I need to replace the bulb. The light has a glass cover over it. How do you remove the glass cover to get to the bulb?
Answer Hello Lou,
The glass bulb cover will screw off in a counterclockwise direction. If it is too tight to get unscrewed by hand, you can use a rubber bottle opener, (rubber pad), to add to the traction so it can be removed.
