You will have to remove the freezer shelves and Icemaker then you should see the screws which hold the back panel in place. Remove these screws and you should be able to remove the back panel.

SOURCE: Westinghouse RP423 Freestyle fridge cooling failure

I am going to assume you are in the UK. the voltage is higher than most household refrigerators here in the USA. Disconnect power to refrigerator and check continuity on two of the three terminals of the compressor at a time until you measure the resistance in the windings all the way around. The terminals should be marked R, S and C. (Run, Start and Common) you should get a reading with your multimeter all the way around. When you have done this and have the readings I want you to touch one end of your multimeter to the metal pipes or any clean metal outside the compressor and the other to one of the three terminals one at a time like you tested before. With your multimeter set up the same, see if you get a reading from metal housing to the three pins, or terminals c, r and s. You should get no reading. If you do, the compressor is a burn out and on the first test if you don't get a reading on the two at a time test between two post that is considered to be open or broken windings. The compressor does have an internal overload that may be open also. But if cool at time of test, and it shows up the compressor in bad. Let me know what you find...Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: I have a westinghouse freestyle fridge and it is

Open the fridge door, locate the dial which moderates the temperature located on the 'ceiling' of the fridge. Remove the light cover, remove the globe. Unscrew the two screws which hold the dial housing to the ceiling of the fridge, let this housing hang from the ceiling in the wires. This will expose a red funnel shaped tray, gently lift the tray and pull it out, you will most likely find the tray drain is blocked with gunk, clean and reinstall. Assembly is reverse of removal.

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.

I have a westinghouse oven freestyle 662 and i was wondering how to replace the light bulb inside the oven


I had the same problem. I found the glass cover was just too tight to move by hand so after isolating the oven, I used an old cloth and adjustable pliers that could apply more pressure. This worked straight away.
try not to screw it on too tight.

cheers

Water is leaking from the inside.


This is the solution to a the same problem in a Westinghouse Freestyle refrigerator which is probably similar in principle. Basically the internal drainage system from the freezer is blocked. Open the fridge door, locate the dial which moderates the temperature located on the 'ceiling' of the fridge. Remove the light cover, remove the globe. Unscrew the two screws which hold the dial housing to the ceiling of the fridge, let this housing hang from the ceiling in the wires. This will expose a red funnel shaped tray, gently lift the tray and pull it out, you will most likely find the tray drain is blocked with gunk, clean and reinstall. Assembly is reverse of removal.
