Replacing the Light Bulb - Freezer

How to Check or Replace the Light Bulb in your Maytag Freezer

Before replacing the light bulb check to see if the light bulb is loose, tighten if needed.  If the bulb needs to be replaced, be sure to replace with an appliance bulb of same size, shape and wattage (no greater than 40 watts).  Not all appliance bulbs will fit your freezer. For instructions on how to Change the Light Bulb see your Owner's Manual.  

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

To replace the light bulb (on some models):
