DIY - Problems - Suggestions - Projects

Post by GuardianAngel on Fri Oct 21, 2016 12:20 pm

I have a big problem! Well big to me. I thought it would be a good idea to create a thread for DYI projects that anyone is working on. Whether it be crafts, furniture, redecorating, or problems that need suggestions on how to resolve them.

I'll go first. I opened my fridge last night and the bulb was burnt out. Ok no big deal. I got an appliance light bulb and was going to simply change it. The bulb was hanging by a thread! I have no idea how that happened. Maybe I hit it without realizing it? IDK As soon as I touched the bulb, it fell off.

I had this happen to my oven light bulb years ago. I used a potatoe method, cut a potatoe in half and shove it hard into the opening, and voila it unscrewed very easily.

This time, no dice. I googled other ideas, and saw a water bottle method. Melt the top of a bottle and use it to twist the bulb out. Nope, didn't work. Now what?

I've seen several different ideas, but I'm wondering what has worked for anyone else?? :crazed

I had that problem, with a bigger bulb and my son took it out with needle nose pinchers, grabbing the metal base. Remember to turn off the power!

Not to nitpick, but should this be titled DIY instead of DYI? giggling

Hahaha, you two mods can start your own comedy routine blog. The new Martin and Lewis!

@GuardianAngel, I'm glad you got your bulb issue fixed. This thread is a good idea!
