Light bulb is not working. how to change it and what kind of bulb is it model: FKFH21F7HW


Good Afternoon Rose, I am happy to assist you!

Before replacing the light bulb in your Frigidaire freezer please confirm that the temperature control is set in the OFF position and unplug your appliance to avoid electrical shock. Typically, you may remove the light bulb by turning it counter-clockwise. The old bulb can be replaced by an equivalent watt bulb (part number is 216988100) available either from part distributors or hardware stores. I hope this information helps to some degree!

Hi
Most freezer lights are screw on bulbs. Unscrew the bulb unticlockwise and replace with a new one.

Freezer light won't come back on .


Is that a florescent bulb in the freezer? Or is there some kind of light bulb in the freezer? If so, change the bulb. I'm not being funny. You give no information on what make, brand and year of the freezer to give you any help.

How do you remove the light on the door of a true tdm-26f? I'm just trying to change the bulb. Any other reasons the light wouldn't be working?


The light should have a cover over it. If not, then just try to loosen it if you can by pressing in on the bulb while turning it. This will help keep it secure to the base of the bulb. If you get it replaced it should work. If it doesn't, then check the button or 1/4 shape tab and see if it is loose or jammed. It stays in a somewhat wet environment all the time.

Sounds like a loose wire since the move. Check you have power at the switch (in and out). If you have, check the starters and ballasts

Need to change the lightbulb located on the freezer door. Do I turn the bulb counter clockwise or opposite?


Right-tighty, lefty loosey...that would be counter clockwise to remove, clockwise to insert. If the bulb is stuck, you may have to defrost the freezer (I know this sounds a bit extreme) to get it out easier. You may have some ice crystals keeping it lodged in the socket.

Changing light bulb in a 25 year old freezer


Whatever you do, you MUST unplug the freezer before attempting any repairs... there will not be any release buttons, nor any special installations for water safety... also, take care to avoid cutting yourself on the broken glass..

1) did the whole light bulb glass And internals come out, or is the internal part of the bulb still present?
2) verify that the light bulb is really a screw-in appliance bulb -- look into the center of the broken bulb and see if the metal base has internal ridges -- or if the metal base is smooth on the inside...
3)  if a screw-in appliance bulb:  3a)  if the whole light bulb glass AND internals came out, you will have to probably look very close inside the socket to determine the wall of light bulb base... it should be very thin and flexible and very unlikely you can unscrew it directly -- I've had to take needle-nosed pliers and gently bend and twist until the bulb base came out...
3b)  if part of the glass remains as well as the internal stem, I have heard that one could cut a potato in half and then push the internal part of the potato onto the broken end of the bulb and gently unscrew the bulb by twisting the potato... never tried this so I don't know if it will work -- if the internal stem is still intact, I'd use my fingers and try to gently turn it to unscrew the bulb
4) if it has smooth inside wall -- this is probably a bulb with small exterior pins -- the base should be a little more thicker than the screw-in type, so you should be able to push the bulb base in -- a little give in the spring holding it in -- if you feel this give, then turn carefully counterclockwise and it should pop out...
Again, turn off all electrical power to the freezer, Pull the Plug before attempting any repairs... remove all glass and handle with care...
