Fridge Light - you posted

Bobz,

Not sure if you got my last comment - I pulled the switch, but couldn't cross wires. If I unscrew the bulb, other electrical works fine/no buzz. Freezer works fine regardless of bulb in fridge. When you open the fridge with the bulb screwed in, it buzzes and the light flickers dimly, other electrical of fridge goes out (filter and cool setting numbers).

How do I fix the freezer light in my Whirlpool side-by-side/freezer on bottom fridge?


first make sure the light bulb works for sure. then most likely it is the door switch. easy to replace. pull out, disconnect and replace. while you are at it, touch the two wires together and make sure the light goes on so you know it is the switch.

How to replace fridge lite bub


Fridge light bulbs unscrew just like the ones in the back of your stove. Depending on make and model you may have to remove some light covers to access the bulb to unscrew it. Can you locate the model of the fridge and post it here so I can help you better with a percise answer?

Removing bulb from fridge/freezer.


Usually the light bulb base is a screw, to remove it you need to rotate it clockwise (facing your fridge). I highly recommend you to use a towel to handle the lightbulb for safety reasons.

If you are replacing it, please be aware that you should use a 25W or 45W light bulb.

Hope it helps.

Light keep on flicking on and off


Unplug the frig to remove power. Unscrew the bulb. Check the nub on the bottom of the bulb to make sure it is not flattened. Use needle nose pliers to grab the center tab of the bulb socket and pull outward slightly so bulb will make better connection. Could be a faulty switch or bad connection in the wiring.

Whirlpool gold refridgerator light not working and is making funny noise


I had the same problem. Model Number GS5SHAXNL00 Light wouldn't work on the fridge side and the led's wouldn't light up. Ended up being a blown circuit path on the control board.

Check the picture.f21d241.jpg

All I did was soder a wire between the 2 points that path was connecting and *BINGO* the lights are back on!

Hope this helps someone. To find the burned out spot just look for a little black smudge on the white plastic case when you remove the board.

Light bulb replacementR


A fridge light bulb is usually a 40 watt appliance bulb with a screw base. It is heavy duty to last in the temperature. If it is not easily accesible to unscrew and replace, there may be plastic cover to unsnap.
