Hi there your problem has to be one of two things 1, check door switch, if o'k check globe socket e.g. if it's a kelvinator the heat of the light distorts the plastic socket. hope this helps.

Bulbs burning and causing frig to get hot.


I need the model number you may have a short and lights are reaming on while door is closed. This sounds like a recall or fire hazard Unplug let the area cool remove the bulbs or risk property damage until confirmed what model you have Sea Breeze

Changed bulb in frig and light still not on. Frig is older whirlpool. est age is 15 years. i thought bulb was just burnt out. everything else still working. replaced old bulb 15 w with an "appliance" bulb...


I would stick with an appliance bulb. The glass in those is more resistant to extreme temperature changes.

Your problem sounds like it could be that the door switch has burned/corroded contacts.

If you have a continuity meter you can remove the switch and test it to see if it's working.

BUT, FIRST, TURN OFF THE BREAKER TO THE FRIDGE!!!!

If you don't get continuity thru it, soak it in rubbing alcohol for about an hour. Let it dry for about an hour, and test it. If it's still not working, replace it.

If you need help with the continuity testing, let me know.

Load noise coming from freezer


nothing to do with light bulb - noise is probably fan hitting ice that has built up. to check, remove back panel inside freezer and check for ice build up. melt off with a hairdryer and get back to me if i'm right

Frig won't cool, freezer works fine


Defrost unit completely. You're frosting up. Then, avoid leaving the door open, leaving liquids and food uncovered. Clean condenser coils. If it happens again, you need refrigerant.
