Blue refrigerator light

I have a 2017 flagstaff. Refrigerator light is blue and you can't make out anything in fridge. Is there a white light available.

If you can remove the bulb (or bulbs) ... head to an auto parts store, or even auto department at wally land or etc.

Might suggest you get a conventional glass bulb, and then consider shopping around (hint eBay etc.) as you can find LED's which use a LOT less electricity, and are available in various forms of daylight - bright white - warm white. (Just don't like seeing people spending $5 - $7 or more a piece when they are a fraction of that online ... we did twenty of our overheads ... and twenty spares ... LED's ... for like $25 total.)

Your instruction manual might have a "base style" or part number ... or a picture here in forum-land, I'm sure someone more eagle-eyed than I am will recognize it outright.

Good Luck ... Happy Camping !!!

See this thread-- Blue Refrigerator Lights

IF you have a Dometic refer you can call the number given in post 3 of that
thread and they will apparently send you a new white light!

Good luck!

Can't believe they're still using blue LEDs after all the complaints and free replacements they've probably had to send out.

Jeff_and_Abby: the light is not individually replaceable - they're LED chips soldered into the PCB, not a socketed unit. Only way to change the color is to either change the board (or buy the white LED chips and have someone with the soldering skills replace them).

Oh Yuk !!! What posessed them to solder those in ??? !!!
Thanks for clarifying.

Can't help but wonder, exactly how proud are the parents of these brilliant young engineers, if and when they figure out that their brilliant kids couldn't engineer their way out of a wet paper bag ???

Exactly correct, email their customer service and if you're nice to them, they may just send them to you N/C. I've had a couple instances with Dometic and their customer service was great. There is a tag somewhere on the inside of the refer that you'll need the numbers

Yes, Dan, they even sent it to me for free in Canada.

Before I found out about the program, I purchased the equivalent Cree LED part in white light and was planning to replace them (still got 'em in my workshop, along with the original blue-LED board).

I had the blue light and called Dometic customer service . At first they were not willing to send one N C but after some talking they sent it out N C . Easy install just unplug the blue and plug in the white one . Good luck .
