  • Tried all of the tips below without success. Then went into the garage and took a pair of reinforced rubber gloves (the type that are a fabric material dipped in a rubber-type solution) and it unscrewed without hardly any effort. If you haven't got any, ask a friend or neighbour that messes around with cars or motorbikes and they'll probably have a pair you might borrow. By Top Tips Timmy - Coventry - 21 October 2018

    Hi Crilly, We've had a lot of feedback on this issue and have since introduced a light cover removal tool. This should make the job a lot easier, see it here.

  • I guess this depends on the oven model. I recently replaced the bulb in our main (Neff) oven. The glass cover unscrewed though it was a little tight to shift at first. The bulb is also a screw fitting and is quite recessed in its housing. It's just possible to get enough grip on the glass to unscrew it. The whole task took a couple of minutes to complete. No tools required. By MrBodgeit - Chester - 01 November 2009
  • If located at the top rear right hand side you should be able to unscrew the lamp cover by turning it anti-clockwise. To prevent damage place a towel into the oven bottom. These can be really stubborn - if no good with the oven cold, try warming it up to say 70 degrees C and allow it to cool a little and while still warm try removing again. Neff's call centre suggest vinegar to help loosen it. By Dizco - Bristol - 26 October 2009
