The light bulb is located in the top panel just above the dispenser and to the front. Be sure to check the manual for bulb voltage, most of these used a 12 volt bulb and NOT a 115 volt. It looks like an old style small base Christmas tree 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.

The dispenser light won't turn off and ice and water not working after filter change..


I'm not really sure of this one but here's a couple ideas. If the refrigerator ice and water dispenser is not working the dispenser control board might be defective. The control board governs most of the functions of the dispenser system. If only one item of the dispenser system is not working, troubleshoot further to see if the problem is with one of the components in the system. The board is more likely to be the cause of the problem when the entire dispensing system fails. It may also be the door switch If the refrigerator ice and water dispenser is not working. When the freezer door is opened the freezer door switch does two things, it turns on the light in the freezer and turns off the ice maker dispenser. If the door switch fails the dispenser will not turn on. The switch can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter. If it doesn't have continuity it should be replaced.Before either of these try shutting it off (or place it in demo mode) and return is to active state.It may just need a reset

The lights on my liftmaster garage door opener suddenly stopped working I have already replaced the old light bulbs with ones I know work but the lights are still not working.


Unplug the opener and remove the light bulb. Using a small screwdriver lift up on the center contact of the socket. Replace the bulb and plug the opener in.

I NEED TO CHANGE LIGHT BULB WHERE WATER IS DISPENSED IN DOOR OF AMANA SXD26VW. PUT IN 12V - 6 WATT & IT BLEW THE BREAKER. WHAT SIZE BULB IS NEEDED. NO MARKINGS ON OLD BULB & NO OWNERS MANUAL.


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.

Well, the solution to this problem was posted in this thread
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1295372-ge_profile_ref_ice_despenser_motor_not

It seems that the bulb in the front panel is pulling to much current as it ages and it makes the control panel in not work properly. Removing the bulb will fix the problem - just fixed mine.

Also seems to match your symptoms (works sometimes and then not others - bulb current is inconstent, light dims when dispense lever pressed - again wrong current draw).

Good luck
