I'm confused by what you're saying. You were able to remove the bulb in the freezer but you don't know where to insert the new bulb? Please explain.

the bulb is on the top of the freezer. I removed it via feel. But can't seem to figure out how it goes back. There was no diagram in the owners manual.
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 10 months ago

OK so the parts breakdown digram is the only diagram that shows how it should be situated so perhaps that will help. Attached below is that diagram

Isn't that the diagram for the light in the refrigerator. I need to replace the light in the freezer.
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 10 months ago

No, that's the one for the freezer section.

The refrigerator doesn't even have a light bulb, it has an LED light board

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
There is a light in the refrigerator because I have changed it. In the diagram, if the light is pointing to the front of the freezer, it is the wrong diagram. The light points to the left in the freezer. I was able to replace the light bulb by turning off the refrigerator and feeling inside. But the light doesn't come on. So, there is something else wrong. I don't know if it is the switch or something else.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Sorry, the light points to the right of the freezer.
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 10 months ago

The diagram I gave you shows the light points to the right, I'm not sure what the confusion is. There are multiple lights in the refrigerator, the one at the ceiling is a light board, not a bulb.

Anyways, if you replaced the bulb and it doesn't light up, either the light receptacle has failed or the switch is bad. You'd have to take the control panel in the freezer out and test the switch with a multimeter or replace the switch and see if the switch is the problem. If the switch is bad, replace it. If not, then replace the light receptacle which is part 6 on the diagram I gave you before.
