Fridge fixing


I fixed the fridge to get it cold but when I open the fridge door the plastic on the interior is yellow. Is there anything I can do to get it white again? Bleach didn't work...

Turn off the light and see how it looks then.

Chances are the bulb turned the plastic yellow.

You might consider replacing the incandescent bulb with an LED bulb....say around the 6200 K range. That will make a lot of that yellow disappear.

Thanks dogg that was a good answer. My wife will be happy I put that incandescent bulb back in the fridge my landlord bought with a bullet hole in it. The other concern I have is the lights on the water and ice maker don't light up. I haven't torn one of these apart yet but I need to find a schematic for that fridge.
