Question about Admiral 26 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator
How do I get to the bulb to replace?
Was the bulb blown that you removed?
If not, it may be the contact switch on the door. These usually are just a press fit, sometimes needing a screwdriver in a slot to release it.
Hope this helps you. If it does, Please take a moment to rate your problem fixed with Fixya! Thanks.

check the lever in the ice bin. if it is stuck in the up position it thinks the ice bin is full and will not make ice. Just wiggle it to the down position.

this is a problem that can only be solved by a professional so please get your local repairman on the line and have him come and take a look.

There are many people that have this problem and are searching for
answers as to what to do and what could be causing this problem. It
seems to be weird that the freezer is working fine and the fridge side
is not. Why would the coldest side be good and the warmer side not?
The answer to these questions lies in the way the freezer/fridge combo works. The freezer is where the cooling coils are located. Then air is moved over the coils and circulated through the fridge side by a small blower or fan. The problem arises when the air is not circulated for some reason.
The reasons the air is not moving is usually two reasons
The first reason is pretty simple to fix, you simply replace the air circulator and things are good again.
The second reason can be more difficult.
1. The timing device that runs the defrost cycle of the refrigerator is defective.
2. The heater coil that melts the water is shorted or not working
Usually the first thing to check is the heater coil. If there is resistance through the coil then most likely it is still good.
The timing device can be an advanced defrost control board or a mechanical timing device.
If the heater coil checks out to be good then the problem should be the timer.
For most situations, unplugging the refrigerator and allowing it to defrost on it's own will get you going temporarily, till parts can be shipped to you. That will melt the ice and give you a few days or a couple of weeks till it ices up to the point where it will not work again.
So you can see here, the problem can usually be traced to one of three things.

I understand that your refrigerator is sparking behind the freezer drawer and you would like to know if this is a fire hazard. In my opinion it would be a fire hazard as plastic and rubber is flammable and the repairman is not true in saying that this is normal. A refrigerator should never spark as this is also an electrical hazard. I would suggest having another repaid man come out and fix the problem or purchase a new box.
