Turn off the power to the refrigerator/freezer by flipping the appropriate switch in your breaker panel. Alternatively, unplug the refrigerator from the wall outlet.
Open the freezer door. Remove any items from the shelf directly under the light shield, then remove the shelf.
Press down on the top, front edge of the light shield until the locking tabs slip out of the slots. Swivel the light shield downward slightly to release it. Pull the shield out of the freezer compartment and set it aside.
Turn the light bulb counterclockwise to remove it. Insert the GE replacement bulb into the light socket and twist it clockwise.
Reattach the light shield by sliding it into place. Gently push the tabs into the original slots.
Insert the shelf into the freezer and reload it with the frozen food removed earlier.
Close the freezer door. Restore power to the refrigerator by flipping on the breaker or plugging it into the wall outlet.
Before replacing the light bulb in your Frigidaire freezer please confirm that the temperature control is set in the OFF position and unplug your appliance to avoid electrical shock. Typically, you may remove the light bulb by turning it counter-clockwise. The old bulb can be replaced by an equivalent watt bulb (part number is 216988100) available either from part distributors or hardware stores. I hope this information helps to some degree!
The light should have a cover over it. If not, then just try to loosen it if you can by pressing in on the bulb while turning it. This will help keep it secure to the base of the bulb. If you get it replaced it should work. If it doesn't, then check the button or 1/4 shape tab and see if it is loose or jammed. It stays in a somewhat wet environment all the time.

Right-tighty, lefty loosey...that would be counter clockwise to remove, clockwise to insert. If the bulb is stuck, you may have to defrost the freezer (I know this sounds a bit extreme) to get it out easier. You may have some ice crystals keeping it lodged in the socket.
Whatever you do, you MUST unplug the freezer before attempting any repairs... there will not be any release buttons, nor any special installations for water safety... also, take care to avoid cutting yourself on the broken glass..
1) did the whole light bulb glass And internals come out, or is the internal part of the bulb still present?
2) verify that the light bulb is really a screw-in appliance bulb -- look into the center of the broken bulb and see if the metal base has internal ridges -- or if the metal base is smooth on the inside...
3) if a screw-in appliance bulb:
3a) if the whole light bulb glass AND internals came out, you will have to probably look very close inside the socket to determine the wall of light bulb base... it should be very thin and flexible and very unlikely you can unscrew it directly -- I've had to take needle-nosed pliers and gently bend and twist until the bulb base came out...
3b) if part of the glass remains as well as the internal stem, I have heard that one could cut a potato in half and then push the internal part of the potato onto the broken end of the bulb and gently unscrew the bulb by twisting the potato... never tried this so I don't know if it will work -- if the internal stem is still intact, I'd use my fingers and try to gently turn it to unscrew the bulb
4) if it has smooth inside wall -- this is probably a bulb with small exterior pins -- the base should be a little more thicker than the screw-in type, so you should be able to push the bulb base in -- a little give in the spring holding it in -- if you feel this give, then turn carefully counterclockwise and it should pop out...
Again, turn off all electrical power to the freezer, Pull the Plug before attempting any repairs...
remove all glass and handle with care...
