how to get halogen 50watt light out of stove hood

kayla47August 31, 2013

I have a Zephyr stove hood. It has two 50 watt halogen light bulbs in it. They have a suction cup twister which I sent for but still can not budge these light bulbs. They are suppose to twist counter clock wise 30 degrees and come out I can not get them to budge. Any suggestions on how to get these out?

For Edison screw base bulbs in difficult locations, I form two stick-on "tabs" of masking tape to grab the bulb and allow turning torque. This way I can turn while experimenting with the direction of pressure that best helps remove the bulb. In your case up pressure may be needed while turning.
