If you are talking about the snap wire in the center you just pull it and bend it over to the side and then the glass will come out. CLick here for image to show you.

That was not the right answer. I do not have a snap ring over the light lens. That would have been a no brainer. The ring I have goes around the base of the glass cover and you can't get a tool or your fingers on it to remove it. I gave you the model number. That should have told you my stove does not have a snap ring. Sorry guys, you failed on this one.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 11 months ago

That sir came right out of the manual for the model you listed so I did not fail on this one you may have the wrong model number.

Sorry, the model number I gave you is the one off the receipt for the payment. I will try another avenue to get help.
