Question about Fisher and Paykel Refrigerators

1 Answer

Removing bulb from fridge/freezer.

I have an oldish upright fridge/freezer. The light has gone out and I cannot get it out. Do I just pull it ut with more force, or does it unscrew... I cannot actually see the the bulb: it is all done by feel.

I managed to lose the manual when moving house.

Any advice welcome.
Tom

Usually the light bulb base is a screw, to remove it you need to rotate it clockwise (facing your fridge). I highly recommend you to use a towel to handle the lightbulb for safety reasons.

If you are replacing it, please be aware that you should use a 25W or 45W light bulb.

Hope it helps.

My sub zero 690 has the fridge & freezer light out as well as the screen


Well the most likely cause is 2 bad door switches, though I rarely see the door switch go bad in the freezer. At the top of the door openings you will see 2 switches in the freezer and the fridge. If you pull down the grille and remove the cover over those switches, the light switch will be the one with the white back, and the fan switch will be the one with the black back. I would try changing the switch in the fridge, and maybe start in the freezer by changing at least 1 bulb before blaming the switch. If that 1 new bulb doesn't light, change that switch too.

Replace sharp vacum headlight


The light bulb on the sharp upright vacuum is accessed by removing the bottom rug plate. Once that has been removed I believe there is two screws to remove and the light bulb and socket will pull out through the bottom.

there's a light or door switch that could be bad,look around and you'll see a switch that the door hits to turn the lights on and off,i've seen people put the bulbs in cross threaded i remove the bulb thread it in and it works try removing the bulb and put it back in again,also if you unplug the machine and stick your finger into the socket there's a metal tab in there that touches the bulb if that is pushed in to far it won't touch the bulb to work bend that out a little and try it again,all there is is the bulb the socket and the switch and the switches are pretty reliable,they're located on the side or up top where the door closes in on the machine

Had a fridge freezer in garage. Just found that


more than likely the defroster inside the freezer has gone bad. This defroster is located in the space between the fridge and freezer and activates to defrost the freezer and stop build up of ice in the freezer.. If it is bad the freezer will not keep the fridge nor freezer cold.

Fridge compartment is freezing in my Hoover upright fridge-freezer. Any advice greatfully recieved. Thanks, Owen


have you tried turning down the temperature for the freezer or fridge? The fridge gets its cold power from the freezer, it is siphoned into it. So turning down the freezer temp may help but a sensor may have gone bad in the motherboard of your freezer and not closing off the vent into your fridge
