Cut a potato in half and jam it in the socket. You can then unscrew the broken piece using the potato as a handle.

I have done the potato thing too. Just be sure the power is off and not just the light switch.

Thanks very much to both of you for the stuck light bulb fixes. The voice of experience is always an unbeatable source.

Sure did! It worked slick as snot! Didn't even have to wait for the WD40 to sit. Thanks a lot.

GB, I tried Zhizara's fix first because I only have one potato and have plans for it this evening. But that sounds like trick worth remembering.

BTW, I've heard that when they were looking for a water displacement medium, after 39 tries, the 40th "recipe" was what worked. Voila - WD40. ( haven't Wiki'ed it, but it sounds reasonable.)

You're welcome Lizzie. I liked GB's idea too, but didn't know about it when it happened to me. I'm happy for you it worked. It's kind of scary, I know, when it happens. Now if/when it happens again, you have two solutions!

used the convection part of my micro. baked every thing on to surfaces. did my tried and true. put quart measure cup filled with water. put on high for twenty minutes. it always works like a charm. wiped inside first with paper towels and gave a quick swipe with mr.clean eraser sponges. nice and shiny.
