Phone request sent as requested Mike. Please be patient as I am on call, so will be in and out, sometimes out for hours at a time, and therefore may not be able to answer you immediately but will either ring you on my next availability, or on my return to the office.

I tried your tip but was unsuccessful the glass light cover is stuck fast. I can try to loosen it with wd40 but apart from that I am at a loss to know what to do.
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Try heating smearing a strong detergent like Fairy Liquid onto the area of the glass where the thread is above, then heat it, but to a higher heat, then use a warm damp thick towel to twist anti-clockwise.. Avoid at all costs using wd40 in your oven.. High Risk of Fire .. the WD-40 product should always be kept out of heat sources. Notwithstanding this, you will not be able to remove all traces of the product from the oven and it will therefore taint cooking thereafter.WD-40 should be kept away from food

Thank you for your advice to my problem. I do not wish to telephone you so there is no need to send any more messages.

That's fine Mike... The reason for the messages was because I received this:(Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello.
