Question about Refrigerators
How do you remove the bulb that has burned out. its a whirlpool designerstyle with the freezer on the top. The recepticle for the bulb is really weird its white plastic and has a ridge on the backside. Try as I might I cannot get the bulb to unscrew. Is there some other way that it is supposed to be removed? Seems kinda silly to call a service man for a light bulb change. I don't have a manual. the refrig was in the house when I bought it. any help is appreciated
Well there is no magic button to push or anything like that some times they get stuck in those plastic holders get a pair of work golves or heavy towel and unplug the unit then just twist it out if the bulb seperates from the base get a pair of needle nose plires and grab it by the base and twist it out

To change a light bulb in the refrigerator, remove the plastic cover that covers the light bulb. This cover should just pop off by simply squeezing the cover gently. Look at the bulb to see how many watts it is and the type of bulb you can buy a new bulb at any home improvement centre. Insert the new light bulb and replace the cover.
If the light on the refrigerator is not working after changing the bulb, unplug the refrigerator. Using a screwdriver, gently pop out the push-button collar on the inside side wall of the refrigerator. There will be two wires connected to the push button switch. Remove the two wires and replace the switch. You can purchase this part at any appliance repair centre that carries parts. Make sure you write down the model and make of your refrigerator and take the information with you before attempting to purchase parts.
