Light for GE Refrigerator

The light [bulb] stopped working in my GE refrigerator model TBX211ABRRWW (other numbers on the plate: RV530133, 18-25). I assumed the bulb burned out so I replaced it, but the light still wouldn't turn on. I tested the new bulb to make sure it wasn't it by putting it in another device and the bulb lights fine. Could it be the switch/socket, and if so, can you tell me how to replace it?

Thank you very much!

two ways might first un plug the unit take the bulb ou and with your finger pull up on the contact inside the light socket ***** the bulb back in and try it if that doesn't work unplug the unit and with a mall screwdriver pry out the switch un plug one wire and with a meter check it to see if its working right or just replace it

SOURCE: GE Profile Refrigerator (Model #20) w/freezer on the bottom

If the problem disappears (for a while) when the freezer reaches 32F, then I know what the problem is.

The GE Profile refrigerators (and likely other models as well) often don't defrost properly, especially in humid climates. So they can develop ice buildup internally, especially if the air vents at the back of the freezer are blocked by frozen food. Once that happens, that ice can interfere with the cold air circulation booster fan that runs when the freezer temperature is too warm. Then you get a LOUD buzzing noise from the fan blades, as they bang into the ice.

The immediate "solution" is to be sure nothing blocks the air vents, and then to melt the ice that interferes with the fan. You can turn the fridge off for a while (with the food removed so it doesn't spoil), and/or get a hair dryer and heat the inside back of the freezer, until the ice melts and falls away from the fan. (Just be careful not to block the nozzle of the hair dryer, or it may burn out from overheating!)

But the ultimate solution is to buy another refrigerator, one that is NOT a GE! And that makes me sad, because GE used to make GREAT refrigerators. My last GE refrigerator is nearly 20 years old, and still works well, and it does so QUIETLY.

the middle insulation hasbecome water logged, forma faulty defrost tube, so, every time trhe unit defrost, 2 maybe 3 times a day it will spill water inti the vents, andin to the refrig, the only correct way to fix is to have the enitre center drain block replaced, part not that expensive but labor to install may be, ohter then nussincence, not really affecting machines workings

Your problem may be in the bulb receptacle or the light switch.
If you have a voltmeter, let me know and I will tell you how to check it.

GE Monogram ZV950S D2SS range hood - lights on one side stopped working then on both sides. This happened as I was changing bulbs. Everything else works.


Light doesn't work
  1. Light bulb
If your refrigerator light does not power on, the first thing to replace would logically be the light bulb itself.
  1. Light assembly
If your refrigerator light does not power on and you have replaced the bulb, this is an indication that the light assembly may have malfunctioned and will require replacement.
  1. Light switch
If you notice that your refrigerator lights are not working, replace your refrigerator light bulb. If this does not correct the issue, proceed to check the power light switch.
  1. Door switch
If your refrigerator light is not working and it is not the bulb itself or the power light switch, the next thing to check is the door switch. This can be checked for continuity with an ohm meter. If there is no continuity present, the door switch will need to be replaced.
  1. Light socket
If your refrigerator light is not working after replacing the light bulb, check for a possible damaged light socket. If the socket is faulty, replace the part to get your refrigerator light to power on again.
  1. Light board
If the refrigerator light is not working the light board could be defective. The LEDs on this board are not repairable, so the entire board will need to be replaced.

My Samsung refrigerator won't stop beeping and light inside is out


OK we know it's a Samsung Refrigerator probably 1 of about 50 models that Samsung sells. The model number is on a plate inside the refrigerator. If you don't have a user manual use the model number at searspartsdirect.com to view or
download the user manual. If sears has ever sold this model it will be there! Use the troubleshooting section to find out why it's beeping. It may be as simple as needing to clean the door seals so they don't leak air. Remove the light bulb cover if there is one and replace the light bulb with one of the same kind.

GE GTS20ICNCC Refrigerator light bulb burns out quickly


Use the correct wattage bulbs. If they fail often then you may need to get it checked by an electrician.
Filament bulbs easily burn out. What you can do is to buy cheap bulbs and replace as soon as they burn. This is the problem which is why tube lights and LEDs were invented!
