How to Change the Light Bulb

Does the Light Bulb need to be Replaced?

Most new models are equipped with LED lighting and the bulbs do not need to be replaced.  If your model currently has a traditional light bulb, please see the instructions below or your use and care guide.

If you would like to download or view product literature for your appliance, please visit our Manuals and Literature page.

To Change the Light Bulb:

  1. Unplug wine cellar or disconnect power.
  2. Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the screw located at the back of the light shield. Pull the light shield back to remove the tabs from the appliance. Remove the light shield.
  3. Replace the bulb.
  4. Reinstall the light shield by inserting the tabs. Align the holes and insert the screw. Tighten the screw.
  5. Plug in wine cellar or reconnect power

NOTE: Not all appliance bulbs will fit your refrigerator. Be sure to replace the bulb with one of the same size, shape, and wattage.
