How to change bulb in the Hampton Bay Oxnard light (not the fan)

Can someone tell me how to change the lightbulb on the Hampton Bay Oxnard ceiling light (Model # HLS8012A)?  I have found instructions on the internet on changing the Hampton Bay ceiling fan light, but my light is not a fan.  It's a round ceiling light with three pegs (that are impossible to turn), a round nickel frame that doesn't turn, and a glass plate underneath that can't be removed.

Hello Babed.  Welcome to the Community!

You are correct that the glass plate is not removable from underneath.  The canopy also does not turn, as it's held in place by those 3 "pegs" which are actually decorative nuts.

To remove the canopy, you will need to remove those "impossible to turn nuts".  I would try using a pair of pliers to gently turn them off counterclockwise.

Here is the web based instruction manual for your fixture: LINK

This is a picture taken from that manual with has assembly instructions.  The red parts show 2 of the 3 nuts you will need to remove.
