Philips Tropical Refrigerator, want to know what bulb it uses, mine died many years ago, lost the globe

My refrigerator is a 1983 model. The bulb died many years ago, and I would like to know what number bulb I need to get, the manual does not say what the model of the fridge is, on the fridge itself it says Tropical. There is nothing in the manual that indicates the bulb number either. Could you please help

Hello Anna-Marie;

What a beautiful name. I am sure it fits the person.

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

All appliances require special bulbs depending on the service, such as ovens, freezers and refrigerators.

These bulbs are expensive, $7.00-$11.00.

Go to your local home depot or lowels with your light bulb, ask for assistance, done deal.

1983, good for you. Appliances can last 30 years or more if you take care of them.

I want to know how many kWh per year my year 2000 model 25369832991 top freezer refrigerator uses


You would need to look on the label inside the refrigerator door that indicates the power consumption for your model. You would then need to compare this with the new model to determine the potential savings in kWh/year. Once you know the potential yearly savings, you would need to multiply this number by your electricity cost (it should be available from your monthly bill, or you can call the utility). Then you can determine how long it will take to recover the expense of purchasing the new refrigerator (minus the rebate).

Anyone else have a Amana refrigerator AFD2535FES develop a refrigerant leak in the sealed cabinet?


You can seal off those lines going around the door that's called the Yoder Loop. but as far as the class action lawsuit or getting Amana or Whirlpool to pay for the anything good luck. There are very few success stories there.

The GE Profile PDS22sfsarss is now 4 1/2 years old. One year ago, the temperature panel stopped working and a repair person told me to just order that circuit -- which I did and replaced it myself....


Not certain this will help your situation, but here is what I did to mine.

GE Profile Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator with Electronic controls with digital temperature readout (Should include Models PDS20MFS, PDS20SFS, PDS22MFS, PDS22SFS, PDS22MFS) May also apply to other models.

Diagnosis: Search of Internet yielded no definitive fix. It appeared to me that the some minor frost buildup might be symptomatic of unseen frost elsewhere. The electronic controls could possibly be messed up.

Fix: Not knowing whether it was frost or the electronic controls (or both), did the following:

1. Turned off the refrigerator. (It is not clear how to do that. Download the owner's manual for your model from the Internet. If it is like mine, the freezer and refrigerator APPEAR to have separate controls. In fact they are linked. To turn both freezer and refrigerator off, press the WARMER button on EITHER the refrigerator OR freezer until the display shows OFF for both the freezer and refrigerator.)

2. Unplugged the unit. Let it set for 18 hours with both doors open.

3. Plugged it in (which probably reset the electronic controls.)

4. Turned it on. To do so, I followed the instructions that said to press the COLDER button on either the refrigerator or freezer. Press the same COLDER button a second time and it should go to the factory presets of 0 degrees for the freezer and 37 degrees for the refrigerator.

5. Allowed the temperatures to stabilize for a week, after which temperature adjustments can be made.

Remove the temp control housing so you can get at the bulb more easily. It unscrews counter-clockwise, it may just be stuck from prolonged seating. If necessary, unplug the fridge, break the bulb, and unscrew the socket with a pair of needle nose pliers on the outer edge of the socket. It may crush the socket, but that's ok, it should come out then. Good luck!

I have a GE side by side refrigerator model # PSS26SGRD and the water and ice dispenser stops working without any warning or symptom intermintently. It will be working find for days or weeks and suddenly...


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

You have the fan problem. Full the refrigerator out and open the lower back cover you will see you fan is almost become bad. If you apply WD1040 oil you can use it about 3 more months. Then It will die out. I think you better change it now or later on you refrigerator become hot and hotter. If you are careless, you can get burn you skin. I had this problem. Frist, the fan made noise on and off. I applied oil into the motor. It was working about 3 months then I died out. The front end of refrigerator become a heater.
Go to online partstore.com and buy a fan with your fan model.
