  • Are instructions available for replacing the light bulb on a 200 / 300 Series product?
  • How to remove the light diffuser on a 361, 3211, 2511, 2811, 2711, 211?
  • How to remove the light shield on a 200 / 300 Series model?


Light bulb replacement for any 200 or 300 Series model is similar.

  • Replace the bulbs with a standard 40 watt appliance bulb even if the original was a different size.
  • LED lights are not available for 200 / 300 Series units.
  • The 200 Series Undercounter units use a 25 watt appliance bulb. See 200 Series Undercounter Light Bulb Replacement for instructions.

To replace the light bulbs:

  1. Place hands up behind the light shield or diffuser, with palms facing out toward the front of the unit.
  2. With fingertips, push out toward the front of the unit, thus lowering the top of the shield out.
  3. With the top of the shield out, push the bottom up and out off the pegs holding it in place, thus removing the shield.
  4. Remove the old light bulb.
  5. Screw in the new light bulb.
  6. Install the light diffuser again, placing the back edge of the diffuser up into the unit first, then placing the front.
