Changing the Light Bulb

How to change the light bulb in your Maytag refrigerator

Please review your Owner's Manual for specific instructions for your model.  On some models, the interior lights are LEDs that cannot be changed. Other models require a 40-watt bulb. Not all bulbs will fit your refrigerator - be sure to replace the bulb with one of the same size, shape, and wattage.

To Change the Light Bulb:

  1. Unplug the refrigerator or disconnect the power.
  2. Remove the light shield when applicable.
  3. Remove the light bulb and replace it with one of the same size, shape, and wattage.
  4. Replace the light shield when applicable.
  5. Plug in the refrigerator or reconnect power.

NOTE: Some LED replacement light bulbs are not recommended for wet/damp environments. Refrigerator fresh food and freezer compartments are considered wet/ damp environments. Read and follow all instructions on the LED packaging when replacing the factory-installed LED bulb. A replacement LED bulb can be purchased from an authorized dealer.
