How to Remove the Light Cover on a GE Profile Arctica

The GE Profile Arctica is a side-by-side refrigerator that is available in several different models. Like all refrigerators, the Arctica models have internal lights that come on when the door is opened. The Arctica internal lights have covers over the top of the bulbs that must be removed when the time comes to replace the bulbs. Some Profile Arctica models also have a light and cover in the freezer part of the unit.

Step 1

Unplug the refrigerator from the outlet, then open the door and locate the light cover in the upper region of the fridge.

Step 2

Remove the screw at the front of the cover, if your model has a screw holding the cover in place.

Step 3

Press in on the tabs on the sides of the light cover and slide the cover toward you and out of the fridge. Unscrew the bulb and put in a new one.

Step 4

Remove the convertible meat drawer control knob by holding it and pulling it straight out. Lift up the light cover for the lower light and slide it out, before replacing the bulb.

Step 5

Open the freezer and locate the light cover, then press inward on the sides and slide it straight out. Replace the bulb as you did the others.
