Replace light bulb in sanyo refrigerrator

The bulb needs to be replaced, but I cannot get it out. It does not seem to either screw out or pull out. It is in a small compartment on the upper right side of the refrigerator just below the freezer compartment and behind the temperature control dial.

Have someone with smaller hands get it out. Husband had the same problem and had our daughter try and since her hands were smaller, she had no problem. Now the BIG problem we are having is finding a replacement bulb!

Replace door switch


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Before you change you door light switch. Lets check it out. First, if you have changed the light bulb, did you use a refrigeration light bulb. These bulbs sometimes are available in your local food market. If you used a household light bulb it eventually will fail. The household bulb is not designed for cold temperatures.

All appliances require specific light bulbs designed to the application such as, refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, clothes washers and dryers. Of course they are more expensive $8.00-$10.00.

Ok, lets assume you have the correct appliance light bulb in your refrigerator. With the door open push on the door light switch. If the light comes on your door switch.

All door switches are basically the same they are plastic two contacts, except for one that is a 3 contact switch. The third contact controls the ice dispenser. This switch is on the left side of the freezer wall (Liner).

Ok, lets change a door light switch. Unplug your refrigerator. With a small flat head screw driver (or butter knife) wedge behind the plastic switch frame. Pop it out. Be careful, do not pull it out too far. You will see the two connectors. It may be difficult to remove the connector, so wedge them with a flat head screw driver (Or butter knife). Do not pull on the wires, just the metal connector.

Ok, with your particular model the contact switch is on the top of your unit. There are two screws holding the hinge cover plate. These screws are either Phillips head or hex head. Either 1/4" or 5/16" hex head. Remove the hinge top cover. You have one on each side. There is a connector. With a small screw driver, wedge into the connector to release it. The rest is yours.

How do I replace the light in my N410H-R refrigerator? Cooling system is still working so light bulb just needs replacing. Can't work out how to open the casing.


Just pull it slowly and carefully. If there's some screw, loosen it and your on the way to replace it. Be sure to replace it with similar size and rating. Most bulb are bayonet type, so you need to turn it before loosen it. Also for safety, turn off or unplug the refrigerator. so that you are not worry about getting electric shock.
Thanks for asking.

Fridge light goes on and off


First check if the bulb is screwed in all the way. If it is, unplug refrigerator and take the bulb out. In the bottom of the socket (where you screw the bulb into) there is a flimsy contact that the bulb touches when screwed in, use a screw driver or needle nose pliers and bend it up so the bulb will have good contact. Replace the bulb and see if this fixed it. If it still isnt fixed, it is the door switch. Ive had some that were just getting gummed up and needed cleaned and lubrication, and some that just needed replaced. They are cheap and easy to replace. Let me know if you have any further questions. Shane

GE GSH22JFTCC The light in the dispenser burnt out replaced it with new like bulb and it won't work?


Make sure you have the switch turned on. Also make sure the bulb is screwed in all the way. Sometimes it can seem to be all the way in but needs another turn or so. If it still dosent work you may have a defective bulb.
