The light switch just pops out. Take a butter knife or something of that sort and put it on on end of the switch and poush towards the center of the switch whilr prying it up. It should pop out. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer.

HOW DO I TAKE OFF LIGHT BULB IN REGRIGERATOR SO I CAN CHANGE IT IT'S NOT UNSCREWING


Hi,

To change a light bulb in the refrigerator, remove the plastic cover that covers the light bulb. This cover should just pop off by simply squeezing the cover gently. Look at the bulb to see how many watts it is and the type of bulb, you can buy a new bulb at any home improvement centre. Insert the new light bulb and replace the cover.

If the light on the refrigerator is not working after changing the bulb, unplug the refrigerator. Using a screwdriver, gently pop out the push-button collar on the inside side wall of the refrigerator. There will be two wires connected to the push button switch. Remove the two wires and replace the switch. You can purchase this part at any appliance repair centre that carries parts. Make sure you write down the model and make of your refrigerator and take the information with you before attempting to purchase parts.

Light Out


Either the door switch is broken or the light socket center connection tabs are bent too far in. Seeing as all the lights are out at the same time my money is on the door switch. It just pushes in and can be removed with a plastic putty blade.

Refrigerator light out


Hi, Did you try the old bublb in a lamp to make sure the bulb was bad? Sometimes when you put a new bubl in, it feels like it goes all the way in. Try tightening the bulb again. Use a rag and grab the bukb with the palm of your hand a turn. I have been on many of these that just needed a little more turn even tho it felt tight.
I hope this helps. If this does not take care of the problem, remove the light switch and test it for continuity.
Please let ne know if I can assist you further.
