2. Use a flat tipped screwdriver to remove the light diffuser cover by inserting the
blade in each of the two recesses to prise off each side.
3. First check that the bulb hasn't worked loose by ensuring it is screwed securely
in the holder. Replace the plug and switch on. If the bulb works, replace the light
cover by inserting the rear lug and pushing up to locate the front two lugs.
4. If the light still fails to work, switch off at the socket outlet and pull out the mains
plug. Replace the bulb with a new 15 watt (max) screw cap (SES) bulb.
5. Carefully dispose of the burnt-out light bulb immediately.
Replacement light bulb can easily be obtained from a good local electrical or DIY
