It would have been really helpful if you could have provided the model number. You can always find it at the back of your freezer. Here are some links to videos which should be useful for you.

SOURCE: bosch fridge freezer - ice build up and water leak from freezer

could be an air leak around the door seals. put a piece of paper between the door and the freezer if it slides around easly then the seal is leaking air and moisture into the freezer. Also -20 is extream. you could turn the temp up by 10 or 15 degrees and it may solve the problem and so money!

SOURCE: Replacing Defrost Heater and Bracket in Freezer Section of Fridge

I ended up having to remove things in this order: all shelves, ice maker insert, ice maker top ice tray, ice maker lower motor housing, shelving support rails (2), rear evaporator coil cover. This exposed the evaporator coils (which were already dry since the fridge had been off for two days) and most importantly, the defrost heater element below the coils. The heater element was easily unplugged from it's two connectors. I tested the unit with an ohm meter and it indicated it was open (infinity resistance). I then knew it was bad. I replaced it with a new unit and put everything back together in reverse order taking care to use the same screws. The fridge appears to be back in working order.

SOURCE: LG refrigerator GR-B258jvc - replacing light bulb

There are usually 3 or 4 locking tabs on the cover that just need to be pressed INDIVIDUALLY toward the bulb to release them and then carefully remove the cover. The ones with 3 tabs usually have and upper and lower tab then the thrid tab is on the side. Removed the upper and lower tabs by pressing inward to the bulb and then the cover will pivot out on the 3rd SIDE tab.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I change the light bulb?


  1. Remove the light bulb cover;
  2. Remove bad light bulb;
  3. Insert new light bulb;
  4. Replace the light bulb cover.
(It sure would be helpful to know what we're talking about. If you want a more specific answer, you will need to specify the YEAR, MAKE, and MODEL of your vehicle, and BE SPECIFIC AS TO WHAT "LIGHT BULB" YOU ARE REFERRING TO). Doesn't that just make good sense? ;)

Need to change a bulb


If we had your full model number, we could help you more precisely.

The first step is to unplug the oven before changing bulbs!

See a diagram which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (most often on the rear or side) and the owner's manual doesn't address it, then disassembly will be required.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.
Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

If you don't have your instructions, please reply back with your brand and model number.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

See these links before proceeding: http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/safety.txt
http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/disassembly.txt

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs (or 20A ceramic fuses) can be had locally in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch halogen types with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

On sub zero 690 like to change bulb in lighted electronic control panel


you will have to remove the light shield, remove the plastic trim that says the model number in front of the light shield, then the 2 screws holding the side cover on the left side of the fridge section. Then the cover will need to be pushed towards the rear of the fridge then tipped out at the front. It has springs holding it in the back.That should access the bulb you need to change

Whirlpool side by side GD25HAXNQ00 Light is out in fridge - including lights showing temp setting - it is not the bulb - what else can it be. Cooling is still fine with both fridge and freezer


you may need a board that is located on the rear of the fridge. pull the fridge out and unplug from outlet. locate the cover on rear and remove screws and open plastic cover. replace the board and new bulb. try this site and it is a bit pricey. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-electronic-control-board--item-number-ap4334000.aspx but to call a repair service it will be around 300.00

How to change bulb in fridge


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 center. 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 center 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.

How to change the light


There are three different models... two wall models (the WL24 and the WL36) and an island model (the IS24). The instructions for changing the lights on all three models are the same.

Light bulb:

  • Make sure your hood is disconnected from the main power supply.
  • You may see a screw at the edge of the light cover. Unscrew it and remove the light cover.
  • Replace the light bulb with the same model as the original. There may be a decal near the bulb that indicates its rating. Don't exceed 25 watts! It's best to bring the old bulb to your store to have it replaced exactly.
Spotlight:

  • Make sure your hood is disconnected from the main power supply.
  • If you don't see a screw, then - using a screwdriver - lever the support ring, then grasp it & pull it straight down and off. This ring supports the glass cover - remove it as well (don't drop it!).
  • Replace the lamp with the same type (12V, 20W, G4 fitting).
  • Replace the glass cover and the support ring - it should snap back in.
Fluorescent light:
  • This needs to be changed by a qualified installer. Don't attempt it yourself.
Good luck!

How do change the ref bulb on sharp ref model sj p43n - sl


Unplug the refrigerator. Remove the lamp cover by lifting up at the bottom of the cover. Then unscrew the old bulb and replace with an identical appliance bulb (Base E12, 240V, MAX 15W, T-20). This bulb is at the top center of the fridge.

The manual is available here: http://safemanuals.com/414159.php?ID=1286636&k=3942fa3f433aa4c53ff8bcb7d07ae8e8&q=SHARP%20SJ-P43N/P47N/43N/47N . You will need to review the fridge or enter a code to download the PDF. The light replacement instructions are on page 6.

I hope this helps.

Does anyone know how to replace the light inside the oven? not the light that shines down. The oven does not light when you use it. The GE manual does not seem to have any information on this or any of...
