This video shows an example on how to remove or replace the part on a typical machine, some models may be different but the procedure should be similar.

What you will need:

Step 1 - Safety Advice

Safety First! Please make sure that you have switched your appliance off at the mains before starting your repair.

Step 2 - Remove The Lamp Cover

We need to remove the cover…on this particular model, the lamp has a cover that has one screw to it, and we need to undo it by using a screwdriver. However, other machines may not have a cover at all, or if they do it might be that the cover simply pops off.
