3 hanging lights

We lost 2 of the three hanging lights over the island sink on our new 36 ckts a few minutes ago. Tried to remove the bulbs and wow.....could not unscrew or twist them out. The hole fixture turns while turning the bulb. Anyone replaced these bulbs? Is there a trick to removing the darn bulbs?

It wasn't easy getting these bulbs out, but I pushed the bulb up, and turned it just a bit. That did the trick. Good luck!

Had to replace one about a hour ago. You may want to wear a glove, however, you do just push up a small amount, then twist. It should drop out at that point. Just as Mike&Nan stated.

Same problem, put on leather gloves, pushed up, turned and finally the bulb came out. Odd bulb, had to go to 4 or 5 places to find a replacement. Also put a thin coat of dielectric grease in the socket and around the base of the new bulb to help with next removal.

I tried everything to get mine out after a burnout. Couldn't budge it! Then after a road trip, while setting up, I noticed glass pieces on the floor and the base of the bulb sitting on the counter top. Dang thing FELL out!! Go figure. Now a second one has burned out. I'm gonna wait until I get it up to the factory and get them to replace it. Maybe it will fall out too. Bulbs should not have burned out that fast. New unit in March.
