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.

Burned out light in refrigerator


Can be behind a plastic cover held in place by philips head screw or screws. The plastic cover can have side clips that need to be squeezed in gently to allow them to release from a slot in the ridge. Once the cover is removed, the bulb should be a screw type. Remove and then buy a replacement - the edison screw size and wattage are the most important thing to fit. Bulb shape to suit size behind the cover. Buy at WW or Coles otherwise spare parts on possibly ebay if you can be precise on model etc.

JUST WANT TO CHANGE THE LIGHT


I am assuming we are talking about a compartment light. Most every brand the light over has lock in tabs that you release with your fingers by GENTLY squeezing the light bulb cover from one side. Only one side will unlatch. The other side is locked and you have to pivot the cover to about a 40 Deg angle to remove it. Grip the socket so it does NOT flex, unscrew the bulb and install the new bulb. To reinstall the cover... tilt it to align the locked tabs and then GENTLY squeeze the cover again to engage the last 2 tabs.

If you need model specific information we need your model number please. The information above should help you accomplish the light bulb change.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

How do change the ref bulb on sharp ref model sj p43n - sl


Unplug the refrigerator. Remove the lamp cover by lifting up at the bottom of the cover. Then unscrew the old bulb and replace with an identical appliance bulb (Base E12, 240V, MAX 15W, T-20). This bulb is at the top center of the fridge.

The manual is available here: http://safemanuals.com/414159.php?ID=1286636&k=3942fa3f433aa4c53ff8bcb7d07ae8e8&q=SHARP%20SJ-P43N/P47N/43N/47N . You will need to review the fridge or enter a code to download the PDF. The light replacement instructions are on page 6.

I hope this helps.

How to change light bulb in refrigerator


Hello,

Unplug the Whirlpool refrigerator from the electrical outlet.
Step 2
Locate the bulb on the inside of the Whirlpool refrigerator.
Step 3
Remove the light cover. Usually these just snap off, but, on some models, they may need to be unscrewed. Use your screwdriver to unscrew the light cover retaining screws (if required).
Step 4
Unscrew the old light bulb.
Step 5
Screw in the new light bulb.
Step 6
Replace the light cover. Plug the Whirlpool refrigerator back in. Test your new light bulb.
Also note that the below can also work

Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
Slide the light bulb cover toward the back of the compartment to release it from the light assembly.
Replace burned-out bulb(s) with appliance light bulb(s) no greater than 40 watts.
Replace the light bulb cover by inserting the tabs on the cover into the liner holes on each side of light assembly. Slide the cover toward the front until it locks into place.

NOTE: Do not force the cover beyond its locking point; doing so may damage the light cover.
Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
To change the freezer light bulb:

Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.

NOTE: You may need to remove the upper freezer shelf or basket to access the light assembly.
The light bulb cover opens from the back. Firmly press forward on the notches in the back of the cover and pull down the cover.


Remove the cover and replace the burned-out bulb with an appliance bulb no greater than 40 watts.
Insert the front tabs of the cover into the liner and snap the back portion of the cover over the light assembly.
Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.

Good luck in applying the solution

Light bulb


Sounds like you got a defective bulb. Make sure it is for 120 volts or thereabouts....not 6 or 12.
