Ceiling lights

We have the RW 38GK and a couple ceiling lights are out. I can get the frosted cover off but can't remove the bulb. How do I pull it out? Thanks Jim

We have the 38RL, we needed to get one changed and they are a one piece unit. (Bulb and fixture) Sorry...don't have a part number for you.

How did you get the frosted cover off? Do they twist off of do they pry off? I'm having an issue on my 31SL. Thanks.

Counter clockwise to remove...clockwise to install.

The globe twists off and the new housing doesn't come with the globe. I went to the selling dealer be looked it up online, they came direct from redwood to him and I picked them up at the dealer. I ordered six of them and I think they were $13.00 or $14.00 each. They were connected in the ceiling with wire nuts took a few minutes to change.

I guess it depends on the age of your Redwood. Our 2013's light covers twist off (about 1/4 turn) and the bulbs just pull out, they have 2 long thin solid wires. Our dealer installed LED bulbs in place of the halogens that came from the factory.

We do find that a couple of the bulbs did come loose and fall out onto the cover occasionally, bending the wires slightly causes more friction so they hold better

I think the older style Halogen lights used a Glass Lens due to the heat from the Halogen bulb, it was about a 1/4 turn to remove the glass lens.
The newer LED lights run much cooler and have a plastic lens that has threads and actually screws a couple of turns off and on.

Steve took one off as the bulb was loose. He said its a twist and a pry kind of thing. He ended up with a few glass chips on my chair.
