Question about Maytag Refrigerators
Squeeze cage, wiggle to loosen bulb. No luck
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.

Use a butter knife and insert it in the slot between the cover and white plastic holder and pull the knife lightly twords you.
Do this on both sides and the cover should come out.
Use 40W bulbs for replacement.

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.

Do not ever touch the quartz bulb with your fingers as fingerprints will etch the glass and cause the bulb to fail prematurely.
