Yes to both, and I believe to remove the light bulb cover you gently lift up and out to gain access to the bulb.

SOURCE: Interior light bulbs stay on?

There is a switch on the inside of your frige that has gone bad. The switch is a slide type switch so when you open or close the door it makes the switch slide in and out, making the light come on and off. You need to write down the make and model # of your refrigerator and order a new switch either from the manufacturer or from the place you bought it. Once you have the new switch, unplug the refrigerator, take a flat head screw driver and gently pry the switch from the interior face, pull the two wires off and replace the old switch with the new. The switch is very inexpensive and very easy to replace. Calling a service technician out to do this could cost you more than you expect. If you are not very "mechanicaly enclinded" then just order the switch and have a brother, neihbor, or someone that is mechanicaly savy come over and fix it for you. It should not even take 5 minutes. ;-)

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

Replace door switch


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Before you change you door light switch. Lets check it out. First, if you have changed the light bulb, did you use a refrigeration light bulb. These bulbs sometimes are available in your local food market. If you used a household light bulb it eventually will fail. The household bulb is not designed for cold temperatures.

All appliances require specific light bulbs designed to the application such as, refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, clothes washers and dryers. Of course they are more expensive $8.00-$10.00.

Ok, lets assume you have the correct appliance light bulb in your refrigerator. With the door open push on the door light switch. If the light comes on your door switch.

All door switches are basically the same they are plastic two contacts, except for one that is a 3 contact switch. The third contact controls the ice dispenser. This switch is on the left side of the freezer wall (Liner).

Ok, lets change a door light switch. Unplug your refrigerator. With a small flat head screw driver (or butter knife) wedge behind the plastic switch frame. Pop it out. Be careful, do not pull it out too far. You will see the two connectors. It may be difficult to remove the connector, so wedge them with a flat head screw driver (Or butter knife). Do not pull on the wires, just the metal connector.

Ok, with your particular model the contact switch is on the top of your unit. There are two screws holding the hinge cover plate. These screws are either Phillips head or hex head. Either 1/4" or 5/16" hex head. Remove the hinge top cover. You have one on each side. There is a connector. With a small screw driver, wedge into the connector to release it. The rest is yours.

  2. Remove light bulb.
  3. Replace bulb with appliance bulb no greater than 40 watts.
  4. Insert front tabs of light cover into freezer liner and snap rear portion over light assembly until rear tabs engage.

How to change light bulb in Kenmore refrigerator serial no. 4A31214613 ?


Open freezer and reach to the back of the plastic cover over the light. You'll feel a gap in the back center of the cover. Gently pull forward and the cover will drop down and pull to the back to fully remove it. Once you've removed the cover you can unscrew the bulb, which you can use to make sure you purchase one like it and most hardware stores, such as Ace or Home Depot. Reverse the removal instructions to install light and cover. Light should turn on once you've screwed it in.

How to change oven light


Which model Whirlpool range do you have? For most Whirlpool ranges that I have used , the oven light is covered by a screw-on glass cover. When the oven is cool, unplug the range, open the door and turn the cover counter-clockwise (to the left). Then remove the 40W bulb (again counter-clockwise rotation). Replace the bulb with another 40W appliance bulb. Then replace the cover by turning it clockwise until it is tight. Do not over-tighten either the bulb or the cover. Then plug in the power cord for the range. (Unplugging the unit makes sure that you will not get shocked if anything goes wrong. Sometimes the bulb may break in the socket - in that case, use pliers to unscrew the base of the bulb before replacing it with a new bulb.)

Whirlpool has the manuals for most of their appliances on their support site: https://www.whirlpool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchView?catalogId=10561&langId=-1&storeId=10211&krypto=5QgxQhneFliXuEuX564wSQ%3D%3D&ddkey=http:OCManualsLiteratureSearchView .

HOW TO CHANGE THE LIGHT BULB IN THE REFRIGERTOR


Hi,


To change a light bulb in the refrigerator, remove the plastic cover that covers the light bulb. This cover should just pop off by simply squeezing the cover gently. Look at the bulb to see how many watts it is and the type of bulb you can buy a new bulb at any home improvement centre. Insert the new light bulb and replace the cover.

If the light on the refrigerator is not working after changing the bulb, unplug the refrigerator. Using a screwdriver, gently pop out the push-button collar on the inside side wall of the refrigerator. There will be two wires connected to the push button switch. Remove the two wires and replace the switch. You can purchase this part at any appliance repair centre that carries parts. Make sure you write down the model and make of your refrigerator and take the information with you before attempting to purchase parts.

How to change light bulb in refrigerator


Hello,

Unplug the Whirlpool refrigerator from the electrical outlet.
Step 2
Locate the bulb on the inside of the Whirlpool refrigerator.
Step 3
Remove the light cover. Usually these just snap off, but, on some models, they may need to be unscrewed. Use your screwdriver to unscrew the light cover retaining screws (if required).
Step 4
Unscrew the old light bulb.
Step 5
Screw in the new light bulb.
Step 6
Replace the light cover. Plug the Whirlpool refrigerator back in. Test your new light bulb.
Also note that the below can also work

Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
Slide the light bulb cover toward the back of the compartment to release it from the light assembly.
Replace burned-out bulb(s) with appliance light bulb(s) no greater than 40 watts.
Replace the light bulb cover by inserting the tabs on the cover into the liner holes on each side of light assembly. Slide the cover toward the front until it locks into place.

NOTE: Do not force the cover beyond its locking point; doing so may damage the light cover.
Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
To change the freezer light bulb:

Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.

NOTE: You may need to remove the upper freezer shelf or basket to access the light assembly.
The light bulb cover opens from the back. Firmly press forward on the notches in the back of the cover and pull down the cover.


Remove the cover and replace the burned-out bulb with an appliance bulb no greater than 40 watts.
Insert the front tabs of the cover into the liner and snap the back portion of the cover over the light assembly.
Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.

Good luck in applying the solution
