I was trying to replace the light bulb in my oven. When I removed the light bulb cover (made of very thick glass)I dropped it and it broke. My question is..can I use my oven without a light bulb cover over the light bulb ?
The bulb, if it is rated to be used in an oven, will function without a glass cover. The reason for the tempered glass cover is to protect the bulb from damage due to pans and trays and also it keeps it clean from hot liquids. To save yourself the hassle and expense for replacing the bulbs it would be wise to order a replacement cover.
