Question about Whirlpool GD5SHAX Side by Side Refrigerator
You can try tapping the light switch (snapping it on and off) to see if that helps but this usually would require a voltage checker or multimeter to test for 120 volts at the socket of the bulb. If you're not comfortable with electrical stuff, don't stick test leads into a live socket... Basically you will somehow need to determine if the switch is the problem by pulling it out and testing for voltage, etc. Some models have a thermal overload to kill the power to the light if it should stay on for some reason, that could be bad too if you have one installed. This type complaint is hard to resolve unless you have the test equipment to explore where power is or is not.

About the only way to determine what is causing the intermittent
lighting to your freezer is to do a little electrical testing with a
multi-meter. Also to press the door light switch in and wiggle it around may
help you locate a bad door switch that simply can be replaced if the light
decides to come on only when the door switch is pressed and released a certain
way. Click here=> GE_Monogram_Refrigerator_Service_Manual
Fresh Food and Freezer Light Diagnostics begin on page 46 of the PDF. I will be
here if you have any questions but most of the physical testing will need be
done from your end Testing the bulb sockets for firm connections and a good
steady 12 volts output and 120 VAC input. If helpful please rate, Thanks, Sea Breeze
