    Opening light fitting

    Electricians

    I have a flush dome ceiling light in the bathroom. I am unable to open the glass dome to change the bulbs. I have tried Google, YouTube and everything.
    I tried using vinyl gloves and sticky tapes to try and twist it counter clockwise but it won't open. It's stuck! Can anyone give me some advice.
    Help!

    "Hi,
    Not all are removed by twisting anti clockwise.
    Some are pull down and some can’t even be removed.
    Or someone in the past could have glued it together. I’ve seen this a lot.
    Best thing is to call an electrician who can help."

    "Get a hair dryer and heat the base for 5 minutes.
    Do not apply heat on the dome.
    Then turn anticlockwise and pull."

    "Push up and twist anti-clock wise. It has more than likely got stuck with the heat."

    "There maybe a nut or a cover securing pin in the centre of the glass dome. If so, try removing it. If not use a qualified, experienced electrician. It maybe a simple fix but without being there it's difficult to diagnose. ."

    "If the bulb is replaceable you will need a 'sucker device' . If not meant to be replaced (maintenance free!) then the whole fitting has got to be changed I'm afraid
