 help
Has anybody ever changed out their fluorescent bulb in an H81D? If it's even possible to do so, I'd like to hear the Pros & Cons of doing so.
Thanks in advance!

Yes. Just google the part number on the bulb and search for an LED replacement. I don't remember the bulb code off the top of my head, but there are LED bulbs in the same form factor. As far as Pros/Cons, same with any other LED replacement - more energy-efficient, lasts longer, more rugged (solid state), etc. Only con would be price as they're more expensive.

You will have to slide out the piece of frosted glass inside the bottle door frame .  There is a small bracket that holds the glass in place, simply loosen the door liner screws on both sides.  Should be a FT13 T8 bulb for home use a standard bulb compared to LED might not be worth it.  The standard bulb is at any local box store for under $10.

Thanks everyone for your help. The glass lens was stuck (I'm sure due to old sticky soda pop). After I wiped down the area with hot warm soapy water, the lens slid up & down perfectly. I did a like for like florescent bulb at this time.
