Giriş

If your Whirlpool refrigerator’s (Type 21MCD, Model WRS571CIHV00) lightbulb has gone out or stopped working, you most likely need to replace the lightbulb in the fridge.

The lightbulb in the fridge allows you to see into the depths of the fridge. Just like regular lightbulbs in your light fixtures throughout your house can stop working, so can the fridge’s lightbulb.

Be careful when removing the lightbulb as it is glass and can shatter if too much pressure is applied.
