Customer Question
I OWN A 12...

I OWN A 12 YEAR OLD WHIRLPOOL ELECTRIC RANGE. THE OVEN LIGHT BLEW OUT. I CANNOT REMOVE THE COVER TO CHANGE THE BULB.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I CANNOT FIND TH. MODEL NO.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

YES. I DON'T WANT TO PAY SOMEONE TO CHANGE A BULB

Contractor's Assistant: JustAnswer requires a modest payment. You'll see the amount on the next page. It's way less expensive than face-to-face would cost. And you're covered by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

HOW DO I GET TO THE NEXT PAGE

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

There are several styles of covers and I would need the model number to know what you have. Most have a screw off glass cover. It needs to turn counter-clockwise to come off. If tight you can try to use a rubber gripper pad to get a better grip. Older models have a wire clip across the glass that needs to be unsnapped. Can you turn the cover?
