Changing light bulbs in ceiling

Has anyone, except me, had a problem changing burned out light bulbs in ceiling. I pulled fixture down, after snapping finger on spring, ouch. Tried to screw off cover to get to bulb but was impossible. Guess you have to replace fixture.

They will unscrew, some of them are really hard. PJ was showing us how to do it with one fixture (ours needed cleaning) and made it look easy. We tried the next one. Not so easy. Got PJ to come back out, he couldn't do it either. Finally got one of the guys in the shop who got it loose. Wish I could tell you how he managed it but we didn't see him do it. Maybe on the other thread mentioned....

The halogen light fixtures are made in China. On the large units, the screw on cover does not stay securely so at the factory they apparently put silicone glue between the cover and the metal case. Remove the light from the ceiling, watch your fingers, cut all the way around the light between the cover and the metal base with a razor blade. You should then be able to un-screw the cover from the metal base. After you have replaced the bulb you will need to clean all of the silicone glue off the cover and base then re-glue the cover when you install. I replaced all of my halogen bulbs with LED and this was a pain!!

Question: On Entegra's web-site, under "Interior Equipment," it says that the Anthem has "LED recessed 12V lighting." Which non-LED lights are you replacing?
