Re: LIght is out in freezer. How to replace and can I do...
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.

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.
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!
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!
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.

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.
