    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 replace my freezer light

An owners manual I found online says:
  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.

Sub-zero 550 with burnt out light bulbs in freezer, can not figure out how to remove them and replace.

Open the freezer drawer, the light bulbs are not covered, just hidden. If your able, get on you hands and knees, with the drawer open, look inside and up, the bulbs are in front on the top of the freezer compartment and can be unscrewed to replace. The above comment meant is you have issue to preform the task of being on your hands and knees, then laying down could help. As I get older it becomes more difficult to even change a light bulb somedays.
Good luck

Bulb quit working replaced with new one still doesn't work

The bulb still not working after replacement, this means the new bulb is working, but its not getting power.Either is short in the wires connecting to the bulb socket or the bulb/ light switch is faulty.In most of the cases, the switch gets shorted internally and , this causes the problem.Get the connections in the switch and to the switch checked, by meter as well as visually.This will confirm the problem.--------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Interior light

No. If you see that the bulb was burned, you can replace it yourself, you dont need to take off the battery terminal since taking it off might cause more trouble to your car. dont worry you cant be electrocuted by a 12V dc by just replacing the bulb
