I had a bulb burn out on the same model.
take the screw out..grab the bottom of the plastic cover and pull straight down.
It fights you, but it'll come off with a little effort.
Putting it back on and lining up the screw hole is fun also.

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.

Light bulb burned out - does door come off?


Absolutely. You didn't post a model number but this is listed under Kenmore I believe? If so, you can use a butter knife or similar to push two tabs on each side of the dryer where the lid meets the door. You will have to undo the two screws that are located near the dryer vent as well. Lift the lid and there are two 5/16 screws on the left and right that screw into the front panel. Take these out and the entire front panel will lift up and off.

Make sure the dryer is unplugged before attempting. There is a chance you have a different style dryer and the above instructions would not work.

The interior light no longer works.


Could be the bulb. Here is how to change it. The dryer bulb is located at the top left of the dryer rim. You will need a torx wrench the correct size to remove the screw that holds down the bulb cover. This type of wrench is available at your local home or auto store and is inexpensive. Once you loosen and remove the screw the cover will fall down. One end is hinged so that end remains in place. On the cover its tells you the type and wattage of bulb to buy. Ours is a 10 watt appliance bulb. You can take the burned out bulb to your local home store and they will get you what you need. The bulb screws in and out of the socket. Just screw the new bulb in and put the cover in back in place and screw the cover down. It is simple. Good luck

How do i find and change the light bulb? both the washer and dryer are burn out. if you can help me i would be very greatful. thanks


Our Nexxt washer does not have a bulb. The dryer bulb is located at the top left of the dryer rim. You will need a torx wrench the correct size to remove the screw that holds down the bulb cover. This type of wrench is available at your local home or auto store and is inexpensive. Once you loosen and remove the screw the cover will fall down. One end is hinged so that end remains in place. On the cover its tells you the type and wattage of bulb to buy. Ours is a 10 watt appliance bulb. You can take the burned out bulb to your local home store and they will get you what you need.

I have gas dryer, model SDG4606, and the light inside drum does not work. How do I replace it?


When you open the door on your dryer your light bulb is located at the top of the opening. There will be a clear plastic cover over it that is held in place by one screw. Remove the screw and allow the cover to hinge away from the opening. The bulb is Maytag part number 67001316.

How do you change the dryer door from a left to right opening to a right to left opening. Thid is a series 90 kenmore


Open the dryer door. There should be approximately three screws that hold the hinges on there on the right side (as you said yours currently is a left to right opening). Remove the screws that hold the door on. As you hold the dryer door removed from the dryer, turn it counter clockwise so that the handle is now on the opposite side. Lay it on the floor. Now, remove the screw hole covers from the opposite side of the dryer opening ( the left side) (these can be removed with a fingernail or a thin flat tipped screw driver to pry them out). This will expose the screw holes on the opposite (left)side of the dryer. Take the removed covers and place them in the original screw holes on the right side. Now simply reinstall the door hinges in the newly exposed screw holes on the left side. This will only work if your dryer is designed to have both types of openings. Good Luck!

Kenmore 363.6367 internal light doesn't go on


I had the same problem! I was soooo frustrated! But, when my brother came to town, he took off the grill on the top of the micro hood, took out a few more screws, a plastic screen, another screw in the metal cover for the light and then reached in with his fingers to pull out the light bulb, we replaced it, then re-assembled it. It did take us about 30 minutes to do the job and you will need a phillips screwdriver, and a phillips screwdriver drill bit thing, but we were able to do it. I love having the light in the microhood again.

Replacing light bulb on dryer


Light is located just above the door on the inside of the drum. It has a clear plastic lens on it. The lens has a hinge on the top and a retention feature on the bottom. You can see all of this with a mirror. Simply push the button up and the lens will swing up. You can then access the light bulb.

Zenith E44W46LCD Lamp Access Door Location


I found the location to get at the lamp. If you are loking at the front of the TV there is a small panel at the bottom of the right end. Two screws, remove panel, two screws inside and a small handle that lifts so you can slide the unit out. 4 screws on top of the cage that the lamp sits in, carefully slide up the silver bracket holding the bulb, be careful the edges are sharp. Remove the bulb from bracket and remove the 2 cables attached to the bulb. Now just do the same but in reverse. Make sure you wear plastic gloves that should be provided because if your fingers touch the lense you could be out the price of the lamp.
