Change light bulb in Maytag MAN1956GE Refrigerator. Can't loosen bulb. Can't remove plastic "cage" around bulb.


Hello Jane;

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

What you have provided is the standard manual number not the model number. The model number is on a label on the inside wall of your fresh food section near the top.

You may have a single screw holding the light cover on.

Note; the bulbs in a refrigerator like all of you appliances is specially designed for the service. They are a little expensive $8.00 - $10.00 each. Some food markets carry them. If not Lowe's or Home Depot.

Go into the following link put in your model number and a diagram will appear to help you.

How to replace the light bulb in the Maytag french door bottom freezer


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!

How do I change headlight bulb on 95 cutless


This is actually quite simple. If you open the hood and look behind the area of the headlight, you will see a brown or gray plastic ring with 2 or 3 colored wires passing through the center. Remove the wires as a group with the connector. Then turn the plastic ring counterclockwise to remove it.There "may" be a small light wire cage over the bulb to prevent it's falling out. Just swing it to the side and remove the bulb. The replacement bulb has to go in with the flat side of the connector facing up. Replace the cage, if supplied, and the ring. You're done. Check the lights for operation. Thanks, Dana.

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 center. Insert the new light bulb and replace the cover.
