It requires a 120 volt bulb. If it is a screw-base bulb, it's the same bulb as used in plug-in nite lights. If it's not a screw-in you'll need to go to an appliance parts store to the proper bulb.

How to change the light bulb on the ice dispenser in the door?


Hello Mary;

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

First - Make sure the dispenser light switch is turned off. Now, that you have broken the bulb it is like having a bare 110 volt hot wire.
I recommend that for safety purposes you do not use either the ice or water dispenser and well as the chance of condensate from warm outside air getting into the electrical and burning out the control board or harnesses.

Get some electrical tape. Turn power off to the refrigerator at the breaker box or unplug the refrigerator. Then, tape over the broken bulb. Turn power back on to the refrigerator.

You may have a ice dispenser cup that you can remove or the dispenser frame for more ease of access.

You now may need a pair of needle nose pliers to remove the bulb.

You did not provide a model number so I can see exactly what you have. Your model number is on the inside of your fresh food section on a label on the upper inside wall.

How to change the light bulb


Hi

Not all bulbs will fit your refrigerator. Be sure to replace the bulb with one of the same size, shape and wattage. On some models, the dispenser light requires a heavy duty 10-watt bulb. All other lights require a 40-watt bulb.

1. Unplug or disconnect power from your refrigerator.

2. Remove light shield when applicable.
NOTE: To clean the ligt shield, wash it with warm water and liquid detergent. Be sure to dry the shield thoroughly before installing.

3. Remove the light bulb and replace it with the same size, shape and wattage.

4. Replace light shield when applicable.

I have a trailer house that has a 100 amp breaker box in it. I has gas for heat, water heater and stove. I am changing them to electric. Will I need to change the panel put to a 200 amp.


Its probably not a bad idea. Thats alot for a 100A panel to handle, a range needs a 50A, a water heater needs 30A, and the heat will need a 50A or a 60A breaker... Plus whatever else is in the house will be a bit more than the 100A service can handle. But if you don't have the money it will do for a while because for the most part they won't all be pulling at the same time. Word to the wise get at least a 30 space panel when you upgrade, I always install a 40 space panel because for the cost difference its well worth it for future needs because you'll fill it up quicker than you think and you'll have space for anything else you may want to add later on. Hope I helped

How to replace light bulb


Hi,

The light bulb for the dispenser is a small night light (Christmas tree) bulb. It is usually 25 watt, but check the one you take out for sure. You will have to look up from below, the easiest way is to kneel down and look up in the dispenser area. The bulb will unscrew, if it will unscrew warm up the socket with a hair dryer on a low setting, this will soften up the socket enough to get the bulb out.

How do i change the bulbs on a jvm1870sk03 microwave


That's covered on pages 35 & 36 of the owner's manual here.

Cooktop Light/Night Light

On models JVM1850, JNM1851, DVM1850 and
EMO4000, replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt,
40-watt incandescent bulb (WB36X10003), available
from your GE supplier.

On models JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM2050 and
JVM3670, replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt,
20-watt halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from
your GE supplier.

To replace the bulb(s), first disconnect the
power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel
or pull the plug. *

Remove the screw at the left edge of the light
cover and push on the right edge of the cover
to open.

Be sure the bulb(s) to be replaced are cool
before removing. After breaking the adhesive
seal, remove the bulb by either gently turning
(for models JVM1850, JNM1851, DVM1850 and
EMO4000) or pulling straight out (for models
JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM2050 and JVM3670).

Replace with the same size and type bulb.

Raise the light shield and replace the screw.
Connect electrical power to the oven.

Oven Light

Replace the burned-out bulb with a 120 volt, 20-watt
halogen bulb (WB36X10213), available from your
GE supplier.

To replace the oven light, first disconnect the
power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel
or pull the plug.

Remove the top grille by taking out the screws
on top of the grille that hold it in place and
sliding the grille to the left (opening the door
makes grille removal easier).

Next, remove the light cover.

On some models, the light cover is located
in the center of the top opening. Remove the
screw that secures the light cover and lift the
cover off.

On some models, the light cover is located at the
left of the top opening. Lift the cover off.

Pinch the clips that hold the light socket in
place and lift the socket out.

Remove the bulb from the light socket by
pulling straight out. Replace with the same size
and type bulb, then replace the light socket and
cover.

Replace the grille and screws. Connect electrical
power to the oven.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

* If your control board was damaged (lights won't come on, won't go off, fan or turntable not working right) after a cooktop light bulb blew or was inserted or removed while power was on, see here.

What size fog light bulbs i need? They blew out and i cant find fog light bulbs anywhere!


the wattage will be on the lamp somewhere normally stamped on the ring under the glass - the voltage will be 12v - I like to use 120 watt driving lights - but fog tend to be lower and depending on the lamp - either the lens or the bulb is yellow - if they are cibe lamps or similar they shouldn't be to hard to find -

Took doors of amana fridge


if the gas content in the cylinder of the fridge has became less then you will get more water in the ice maker .....

the gas content might have got reduced due to some of the reasons like if the fridge is kept open for long period of time when it is in on etc ....

it is some what difficult to explain the wiring theoritically so it is better you call a technician and get it fitted ...

he will just take some charges ... it is really not much any way
