JA: Have you replaced the light fixture or switch before? If so, how long ago?
Customer: No
JA: How long has this been going on with your Hotpoint lighting? What have you tried so far?

Customer: How to remove and replace bulb
Guys I'm darran I'm a domestic engineer and refrigerator engineer
OK you need to pop the plastic lamp cover off. It may have a screw holding it you need to look at the bottom and feel for the screw hole remove the screw and pop the holder out you then have access to the bulb you can then replace and refit, some models you remove the clear bulb cover and the screws are hear just slight variations on model same principle regards darran

Do I need an Allen to remove bulb
I apologise guys your appliance has came through as a fridge.
No the bulb glass you need to push it firmly and twist clock wise you will turn it a little then feel some resistance you need to give a firm twist and the glas will come off
Guys never do this without turning the appliance of and isolated when the lamp glass is off you can then replace the bulb.
The access is from inside guys as said you twist a little and come across resistance you need to firmly twist past this a cloth is use full for grip regards darran

I have removed Hotpoint microwave from built-in unit what cover do I remove to access bulb
The thin out shell screws off there are quite a few But let the appliance sit over night for the capacitor to drain as this is a very high discharge, then unscrew the shell and you can then easily replace the lamp regards darran
