Hi,

I have a whirlpool smooth top range with oven. Model is
rf386pxeq.

Looks like the oven bulb is burnt out, but i can't figure
out how to get the glass dome over it to open. The
manual says to unscrew the glass, but it just won't budge
except for a small turn.

Here is the light socket i am referring to

Help please !

Thanks !

Go to the hardware store and buy a spray can of Liquid Wrench. Spray it on the seam and the glass dome will practically unscrew itself.
