First: Flip the circuit breaker to "off".


If the globe revolves and the base doesn't, you may have to break the globe and use the "potato method". (09/01/2009)

Tried the tape for a stuck light bulb, worked like a charm in less than 2 minutes and no broken glass. Thanks so much. (12/14/2009)

Removing a Stuck Light Bulb

Couldn't get soap to work so I tried about 5 unsharpened pencils and placed a rubber band around the end. Then I was able to unscrew the light bulb base. I changed 3 broken light bulbs in about 5 minutes. My wife had the pencil idea. (07/13/2010)
