SOURCE: light bulb replacement doesn't work

Hi Liz,
The reason they want you to disconnect the power is to prevent shock while installing the new bulb. The door switch controls the light in the freshfood so you really do not need to disconnect power, just be careful not to stick your finger into the socket. In most cases the bulb is hard to get securely screwed into the socket. The moisture in the refrigerator causes defect in the metal around the bulb socket and causes the bulb not to make a secure connectioin. So to repair your problem you can first off make sure the bulb is securely screwed into the socket. If it does not work you can check the voltage at the socket for the 110 volts. You can do this with any volt meter if you have one. Sometime the new bulbs can also be bad, its rare but possible. If you are not getting the proper voltage to the socket then you may need a door switch. If you have another light working in the freshfood then the door swith will not be the problem. The door switch is the only power feed swith to the socket, so one of those two will definately fixYa. Good luck and have a great day.

Replacing Light Bulbs
To avoid electrical shock which can cause severe personal injury or death, disconnect power to refrigerator before replacing light bulb. After replacing light bulb, reconnect power.
To avoid personal injury or property damage, observe the following:
• Allow light bulb to cool.
• Wear gloves when replacing light bulb.
Fresh Food Section
(style of light shield varies)
1. Slide clear light shield toward back of compartment to release from light assembly.
2. Remove light bulbs.
3. Replace with appliance bulbs no greater than 40 watts.
4. Replace light bulb cover by inserting tabs on light shield into liner holes on each side of light assembly. Slide shield toward front of refrigerator until it locks into place. Do not force shield beyond locking point. Doing so may damage light shield.

SOURCE: LG refrigerator GR-B258jvc - replacing light bulb

There are usually 3 or 4 locking tabs on the cover that just need to be pressed INDIVIDUALLY toward the bulb to release them and then carefully remove the cover. The ones with 3 tabs usually have and upper and lower tab then the thrid tab is on the side. Removed the upper and lower tabs by pressing inward to the bulb and then the cover will pivot out on the 3rd SIDE tab.

Thanks for using FixYa.

The light in my Kelvinator fridge will no longer work, can it be fixed, globe has been replaced , also


Barbara: You can remove the globe and replace the light bulb with an appliance light bulb. If it still doesn't work, try wriggling the socket a little bit with the light bulb in place (so you don't get shocked). If it STILL does not work, yes, a socket can be replaced and rewiring can be done.

Trying to change upper light bulb in fridge


Make sure you unplug fridge from wall power socket,remove bulb cover if one is fitted.Carefully twist or gently try to unscrew bulb. If successful take bulb to electrical parts shop and buy a new one.You may of course use your Fridge until you buy a new lamp,Refitting is simply the reverse of removing bulb.Good Luck!

Please check the door switch and the bulb holders, in some cases it can be due to loose connection or a faulty switch on the door, The failure of the bulb is another issue but the main subject is how you can check and remove the bulb.

I have a Hotpoint HMB313I integrated fridge freezer. When I open the fridge door no light comes on. Should there be a light in the fridge? If so, could you tell me please where the light(bulb) is located...


Hi!!

The light bulb is usually located in the center top of the fridge box, you may need to get on your knees and look up to see it. They usually just screw out, in case there is a plastic cover, just squeeze it and remove it. The replacement bulb can be found at Walmart or KMar it is call Appliance Bulb.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

Why dont the lites in reftig work --I replaced


Good day,
If both lights went out at the same time, then it is normally the light switch which is located front and usually top of fridge compartment.
First, test the old bulbs in a lamp ect. if O.K. then you will have to change the switch.
It pries out, but is usually broken in the process.
Do this with the machine unplugged, since the power to the switch is always hot electrically.


But before anything else.......
Make sure the new bulbs are snugged in well. They form a moisture seal, and must be tight.

Where abouts is the thermostat inside the fridge there are white and yellow wires that go to either side of the fridge and the yeallow ones are broken what are these wires for it is a kelvinator C375vm


It sounds like you have a cyclic defrost fridge,Kelvinators were originally fitted with heat assist thermostats,so in order for the fridge to come back on a yellow wire heater was run around the cooling evaporator in the fridge compartment start running again at approx +4C so when the element fused the fridge did not start again until approx +12C.So instead of replacing heater a different thermo was used that came back on at +4c deg regardless.Kind Regards.

The light bulb needs replacing but..


It would have been really helpful if you could have provided the model number. You can always find it at the back of your freezer. Here are some links to videos which should be useful for you.

Light went out after 1 month.


We still cant get the cover off but as the fridge is only 1 month old I dont feel I should pay anything. In any case I'm not sure whether your sign means pounds, euros or dollars?
We are getting our son-in-law to come round next week and use brute force. We certainly shant buy any Whirlpool products again!

Fridge light model unknown


Your best bet is to remove the light bulb and take it to a light bulb specialty store. They will be able to match one up for you.
