    Thank you actually, the bulb is in the back by the ice maker and I can reach it, but tough to unscrew since it is in the freezer. Any tips to getting it to loosen without breaking?

    Thanks to both of you! We got it out, very easy actually but we appreciate the quick answers and will locate a replacement bulb. Have a great weekend! :) This site is great!

Yes you can do yourself

Usually in a medal frame - use screwdriver to pry gently away - inside is a module with bulb - a number will be on it - just take out and insert new one and put frame back

You can obtain at an appliance parts store or on ebay usually (mine costs about $10-$12 at appliance store.)

I thought you meant the power light on freezer but
on reading it again looks like you mean in freezer - same idea but it's more likey a fridge / freezer bulb - just take off the panel and take your sample to a lighting or hardware store or contact manufacturer on their website if it is an oddball bulb.

Yes, you can do this yourself.

There is probably a cover over the bulb which snaps off or has a coupla screws in it. Remove cover, unscrew bulb. You'll find a replacement at your grocery store (like Pathmark,etc.)

How do I fix the freezer light in my Whirlpool side-by-side/freezer on bottom fridge?


first make sure the light bulb works for sure. then most likely it is the door switch. easy to replace. pull out, disconnect and replace. while you are at it, touch the two wires together and make sure the light goes on so you know it is the switch.

How do I replace my freezer light


An owners manual I found online says:
Freezer
  1. Pinch rear tabs on light cover and pull straight down.
  2. Remove light bulb.
  3. Replace bulb with appliance bulb no greater than 40 watts.
  4. Insert front tabs of light cover into freezer liner and snap rear portion over light assembly until rear tabs engage.

The manual illustrates the bulb is behind a plastic grille right by the temperature control knob.

Light bulb is not working. how to change it and what kind of bulb is it model: FKFH21F7HW


Good Afternoon Rose, I am happy to assist you!

Before replacing the light bulb in your Frigidaire freezer please confirm that the temperature control is set in the OFF position and unplug your appliance to avoid electrical shock. Typically, you may remove the light bulb by turning it counter-clockwise. The old bulb can be replaced by an equivalent watt bulb (part number is 216988100) available either from part distributors or hardware stores. I hope this information helps to some degree!

How to replace the light bulb in the Maytag french door bottom freezer


Hopefully you have figured this out. Its fairly simple to do. If your freezer if full you will need to empty enough that you can place your hand in and on the Plastic Light cover. Its in the center at the top of the freezer. This cover is removed by simply applying a little pressure to the right and left corner and pulling toward you and down. The light cover with very little pressure should mover and pull down. Once it begins to lower in the back just keep a hold of it and mover your hand toward the rear of the freezer and the front tabs will slide out.
After changing the light bulb, simply put the front two tabs of the front of the cover in first and snap back into place by pushing up. Takes about 3 minutes to change the light bulb. Good Luck!

How to change light bulb in refrigerator


Hello,

Unplug the Whirlpool refrigerator from the electrical outlet.
Step 2
Locate the bulb on the inside of the Whirlpool refrigerator.
Step 3
Remove the light cover. Usually these just snap off, but, on some models, they may need to be unscrewed. Use your screwdriver to unscrew the light cover retaining screws (if required).
Step 4
Unscrew the old light bulb.
Step 5
Screw in the new light bulb.
Step 6
Replace the light cover. Plug the Whirlpool refrigerator back in. Test your new light bulb.
Also note that the below can also work

Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
Slide the light bulb cover toward the back of the compartment to release it from the light assembly.
Replace burned-out bulb(s) with appliance light bulb(s) no greater than 40 watts.
Replace the light bulb cover by inserting the tabs on the cover into the liner holes on each side of light assembly. Slide the cover toward the front until it locks into place.

NOTE: Do not force the cover beyond its locking point; doing so may damage the light cover.
Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
To change the freezer light bulb:

Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.

NOTE: You may need to remove the upper freezer shelf or basket to access the light assembly.
The light bulb cover opens from the back. Firmly press forward on the notches in the back of the cover and pull down the cover.


Remove the cover and replace the burned-out bulb with an appliance bulb no greater than 40 watts.
Insert the front tabs of the cover into the liner and snap the back portion of the cover over the light assembly.
Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.

Good luck in applying the solution

No light in refer but works in freezer


Check the door switch to see if is working and try another light bulb or try the light bulb somewhere else to see if the light bulb is good. Check to if vent holes coming from the feezer are blocked by something in the fridge. This will make it feel like your fridge is not working.
