Replacing the light bulb in your Miele oven might seem daunting, but it’s a simple task that you can do on your own with just a few tools. In this guide, we will walk you through the steps of replacing the bulb safely and efficiently.

Step-by-Step Guide

1. Turn Off the Power

Before you begin, ensure that your oven is turned off and completely cool. It’s advisable to unplug the oven from the wall or switch off the circuit breaker to avoid any electrical hazards.

Once the cover is off, carefully unscrew the old bulb by turning it counterclockwise. If the bulb is broken, be sure to wear gloves to protect your hands from sharp edges.

4. Insert the New Bulb

Take the new bulb and screw it into the socket clockwise until it is secure. Ensure you are using a bulb that matches the specifications recommended by Miele.

5. Replace the Glass Cover

Reattach the glass cover by screwing it clockwise until it is firmly in place.

6. Test the New Bulb

Turn the power back on and switch your oven on to check if the new bulb is working properly.
