Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators

1 Answer

I've had this refridgerator for 15yrs and it's been working fine. But lately the bulb went out, I replaced it w/ a new 40watt appliance bulb and it still stays off most of the time. Could it be a wiring problem??

It might be the door switch ? you do know if your fridge is that old its probably using 4 times as much power as a new model.

How do you convert lights and refridgerator over to 120 volts on your 2005 Keystone Outback? Everything else is working fine except these two.


You would need to first determine what the appliances are not working. Then you either have to replace them or run new wiring and use a Voltage converter.

Sub zero lights dont work


Try wiggling light switch side to side kinda hard, (the light switch is the one on the left) it should come on, showing you its a bad lt. switch.if that fails install 1 new 40watt,(long) appliance bulb. but it is going to be the switch or the bulb considering there wasn't any wiring work done on unit. part# for the light switch is 3060140 make sure the back of the switch is white not black (black is a fan switch) Good Luck !!!

The bulb in freezer has blown i have tried 3 different bubs all being 40 watt 120v app, bulb that was there was 40watt 115-125 v is there a difference in bulb or is there another problem


Good morning
Voltage is fine .
Check to make sure bulb is shutting off.Door switch might be stuck.
Or water might be hitting the bulbs causing them to fail.

I wanted to replace the oven light in my Maytag electric oven but I can't get the glass cover or dome off. Does it turn a particular way or direction?


it turns off but might be stuck or melted on possibly because the heat or the factory overtightened it, it will come off might just need a lil elbow grease but be carefull sometimes people break those tryin to remove. i believe its just a 40watt appliance bulb , hope this helps let me know

KSRS22FGWHO4 INTERIOR LIGHT LOCATION


As I mentioned previously, I had previously tried a new bulb behind the control panel and it didn't work. I tried again, but first I unplugged the refrigerator, and then installed the new bulb. And when I plugged the refrigerator back in, the light worked!

I am not sure why unplugging the refrigerator before installing the new bulb worked, but it did.

Light bulb replacementR


A fridge light bulb is usually a 40 watt appliance bulb with a screw base. It is heavy duty to last in the temperature. If it is not easily accesible to unscrew and replace, there may be plastic cover to unsnap.
