Is it the cover or the light bulb that isn't coming out? The cover for the 74889 needs to be pushed up and then pull it forward and down. It is hanging by a tab that holds until the angle of the cover is changed to a shallow angle relative to the back of the fridge. The light bulb should unscrew by turning it counterclockwise. If the bulb was previously overtightend, then you may need to use something to improve your grip on the bulb. I sometimes use the plastic jar opener sheets. If the bulb breaks, remove the remainder of the bulb from the socket with pliers (I use needle-nose or similar long straight blade pliers held open to the width of the butlb).

You should unplug the appliance while changing the bulb.

The manual for the Kenmore 74889 is available here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/5899/KENMORE-Top-Mount-Refrigerator-L0411041?brand_name_search=Kenmore+74889 . Other Kenmore manuals can be found by using the search engine here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals .

I hope this helps.

Getting the brake light off to change light bulb


Most brake light bulbs are accessed from trunk interior. open trunk and look for removeable panels that might have 'click' catches. These panels will be adjacent to the bulb location. Once bulb socket is exposed, find the appropriate bulb and twist the socket counterclockwise about 1/4 turn and bulb socket should pull free out to expose bare bulb. Bulb should also either pull straight from socket or twist 1/4 turn and pull free from socket. Replacement is simply the reverse,
