Frigidaire side by side freezer lights out

I thought this would be a no-brainer. There are 2 light bulbs in the freezer, one in the front and one at the back. The front burned out and so I picked up a light bulb and changed it. Did not work. I know the bulb works. Now the back one just burned out. I have not changed the back one yet. I am thinking its a fuse? Is there a fuse box on this and would I need to change the fuse?

Its a Frigidaire - 21 year old but works great. I have never changed any fuses. Model # FRS24XHA

Any help?
Thanks

I used your partial model number to access the wiring diagram.
The bulbs all run on 120v and there are no fuses that would affect them.

I looked at the parts suppliers.... they show the bulb for over $20. I'm not sure where that price is coming from as it's only an appliance lamp.

OOh well that doesn't sound good. I bought "appliance bulbs" and it was about $3 in the local supermarket. So are we talking about a special bulb? Is there such thing? A new socket possibly?

I've never had to change a light socket before but I don't think they are anything special.
I would carefully check for 120vac at the socket.

I just tried the other bulb in the back of the freezer in the front socket and it works so its the bulb I bought. The bulb works but not in the freezer. Its a Sylvania bulb...every Sylvania bulb I buy never works! Piece of ****!

Unfortunately the quality control has gotten lax on incandescent bulbs.
Fortunately they'll be gone in a few years.
