Hold the bulb by opposing edges, rock it back and forth, while pulling on it. To order a new bulb, go to www.appliancepartspros.com, and order part number AP4411784. It costs $3519.

Thank you for choosing JustAnswer.

If you still have difficulty removing the bulb, you may may need to pry on the edge with a non-metallic instrument.
