The first thing to do is switch the fridge off at the mains, remove the contents and leave it to defrost.

To remove the bulb from the fridge you’ll need to twist the bulb anti-clockwise to release the lightbulb from its socket. Replace the bulb by rotating it clockwise until securely in place. Reconnect to the mains to check the bulb lights up.
