Answer:

The lighting assembly is located behind the light diffuser at the top of the freezer compartment of a Classic (Formerly Built-In) (BI) Over-and-Under product.

To remove the light bulb:

  1. Remove top freezer basket by pulling the upper basket forward until it stops.
  2. Lift the front of basket up slightly, then push the upper basket slides back to disengage slide hooks from the slots at rear of basket assembly.
  3. Continue pulling the basket forward while lifting it up off the slides.
  4. Remove the freezer light diffuser, held in place in the ceiling of the freezer with diffuser retainers.
  5. Squeeze the diffuser at the middle so the edges disengage from the diffuser retainers, and pull the diffuser from the compartment ceiling.
  6. Turn the bulb counterclockwise to remove.
