SOURCE: Changing interior light bulb in Whirlpool Frost Free 350,390 or 460 (per manual)

Hello davvyde,
Welcome,


You said, you have removed plastic cover for light bulb, as per manual supplied, but I cannot fit my fingers around light bulb to unscrew it. Is it clockwise or anti-clockwise and does the bulb actually screw into the white bayonet, or is that part of the overall bulb-structure? Not enough space to screw anything! Incidentally, I have a small hand and therefore small fingers.

What is the model number of your appliance.
Is the bulb intact or did the glass part come off and leave the metal base inside?

IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM TURNING OR GETTING THE BULB OUT, BEFORE YOU US ANY THING OTHER THAN YOUR HANDS, UNPLUG THE FRIDGE!

  1. Whirlpool bulbs screw out counter in the counter clockwise position.
  2. If it is screwed in very tight try a rag, or towel in your hand.
  3. Or you may try a rubber glove which causes friction and may give you a better grip.
  4. Turn off the fridge for a moment while you do this, in case the bulb breaks in your hand
  5. If the bulb comes apart from the metal base, (AND YOU HAVE THE PLUG OUT OF THE OUTLET) You may be able to gently use a needle nose pliers, to little by little loosen the bulb up if it is stuck

I've never seen this before in a fridge.
Let me know what works?

SOURCE: LG refrigerator GR-B258jvc - replacing light bulb

There are usually 3 or 4 locking tabs on the cover that just need to be pressed INDIVIDUALLY toward the bulb to release them and then carefully remove the cover. The ones with 3 tabs usually have and upper and lower tab then the thrid tab is on the side. Removed the upper and lower tabs by pressing inward to the bulb and then the cover will pivot out on the 3rd SIDE tab.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How to replace light bulb in microwave model MMV5208WW-1


The support page with free manuals is here.
http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search_results.jsp?searchTerm=MMV5208WW1&siteCd=WHRCOM&userType=Consumer

The owner's manual says:

Cavity light: The cavity light bulb is located behind the vent
grille at the top front of the microwave oven, under the bulb
cover, and is replaceable. Remove two screws on the vent
grille, tilt the grille forward, and lift it out. Open bulb cover and
replace bulb. Close bulb cover, replace vent grille, and secure
with screws.

Cooktop light: The cooktop light bulb is located on the
underside of the microwave oven, and is replaceable. Remove
bulb cover screw, and open the bulb cover. Replace bulb,
close bulb cover, and secure with screw.

To remove the grille, see my video at microwavecontrol.com.

There is always a way to change a light bulb. If you can see how the light bulb is there, whether it is a screw type or bayonet, then you can do it. Usually you remove the clear or frosted plastic cover and then you should be able to assess whether you can remove the bulb by pressing down and turning it (if it is a bayonet type), or you simply turn it counterclockwise until it's removed. Shoud I also tell you how to reinstall the bulb? lol. It doesn't take long.

HOW DO I TAKE OFF LIGHT BULB IN REGRIGERATOR SO I CAN CHANGE IT IT'S NOT UNSCREWING


Hi,

To change a light bulb in the refrigerator, remove the plastic cover that covers the light bulb. This cover should just pop off by simply squeezing the cover gently. Look at the bulb to see how many watts it is and the type of bulb, you can buy a new bulb at any home improvement centre. Insert the new light bulb and replace the cover.

If the light on the refrigerator is not working after changing the bulb, unplug the refrigerator. Using a screwdriver, gently pop out the push-button collar on the inside side wall of the refrigerator. There will be two wires connected to the push button switch. Remove the two wires and replace the switch. You can purchase this part at any appliance repair centre that carries parts. Make sure you write down the model and make of your refrigerator and take the information with you before attempting to purchase parts.
