I was just curious if you can put new bulbs into these new fridges with theatre lighting?  Or if they burn out your out of luck.  Any answers or comments are appreciated.

Model number?

Most newer refrigerator lights are LED and shouldn't go out for a very long time.

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.

I don't have a model specific.  Just a general question.  Should they last the life of the fridge?

Leds regardless of make or model generally outlast the main control boards.  Meaning, the boards usually fail before the leds have a chance to burn out.  At least in my experience.

You will have to order the whole led assembly. No bulbs to change. Some of them have a separate power supply for the LEDs which can be an issue as well.
