Thanks for contacting manage my life about your refrigerator model 363.57552…, I will be glad to assist you.

The light shield in the freezer is located in the back of the freezer just above the evaporator cover; you will need to remove any shelves that are directly in the way of the light bulb sockets. To remove the old shield pulls the bottom outward and lift up to release from the top pins. (it just snaps into place) install new in reverse order.


Due to the age of the product there are no videos that I can offer, even the service manual does not cover this.

I hope this helps.


If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link:
