How to change the light bulb on the ice dispenser in the door?


Hello Mary;

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

First - Make sure the dispenser light switch is turned off. Now, that you have broken the bulb it is like having a bare 110 volt hot wire.
I recommend that for safety purposes you do not use either the ice or water dispenser and well as the chance of condensate from warm outside air getting into the electrical and burning out the control board or harnesses.

Get some electrical tape. Turn power off to the refrigerator at the breaker box or unplug the refrigerator. Then, tape over the broken bulb. Turn power back on to the refrigerator.

You may have a ice dispenser cup that you can remove or the dispenser frame for more ease of access.

You now may need a pair of needle nose pliers to remove the bulb.

You did not provide a model number so I can see exactly what you have. Your model number is on the inside of your fresh food section on a label on the upper inside wall.

How do i fix christmas tree lights


Assuming the wires to be good, if the string of lights consists of more than one section (for example, a string of 100 lights is made up of two sections of 50 lights each) and the lights of only one section are out, you have a bad bulb (or possibly more than one) that must be located and replaced. If your light string is only a single section set (a set of 50 or 35 or 10), it's most likely also a bad bulb but it could also be one of the fuses located in the plug. Light sets come with a few replacement bulbs and usually two fuses. Take the plug and slide open the little compartment door and you'll see them. Replace them and try the set. If it still doesn't work, it's a bad bulb. On multiple-section sets, the fuses in the plug power all the sections, so a working section eliminates the fuses as suspect.

Light bulb replacement what size? cannot find one to fit


Most appliance take a standard bulb similar to this:

http://www.reliableparts.com/product/inv_240436702/Appliance-Light-Bulbs-461460

My experience is that most stores with a lighting section will stock replacement bulbs for ovens and refrigerators. The best thing to do is to removed the burnt out bulb and take it along with your to the store to make sure you match the replacement.

According to your manual your interior light is a 40 watt appliance bulb.

Trust this is helpful.

I need to fix Dash air vent light -Left side - that goes on and off- How due I remove the bulb and check the wiring?


Check out the "Instrument Cluster Light Bulbs" section below:

2002 Volkswagen Passat - Repair Manual - Chassis Electrical (excerpt)

Dome/Map/Cargo Light

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the bulb from its retaining clip contacts. If the bulb has tapered ends, gently depress the spring clip/metal contact and disengage the light bulb, then pull it free of the two metal contacts.

To install:
  1. Before installing the light bulb into the metal contacts, ensure that all electrical conducting surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.
  2. Insert the bulb into the holder. If the contacts have small holes, be sure that the tapered ends of the bulb are situated in them.
  3. To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct as necessary.
  4. Install the cover until its retaining tabs are properly engaged.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Instrument Cluster Light Bulbs
The instrument clusters installed on these models are one of 2 types and distinguished by the instrument lighting color, either green or blue.
On models with green instrumentation, only the control light bulbs are replaceable. Should any other failure occur, the instrument cluster must be replaced.
On models with blue instrumentation, none of the components are replaceable. Should a failure occur, the instrument cluster must be replaced.

Map Lights
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the bulb from its electrical connector.
  3. Installation is the reverse of removal.
