SOURCE: Kenmore refrigerator light does not work

there is a tab in the bottom of the light socket that can get bent so that it wont touch the base of the new bulb. unplug your refrig and use a small screw driver and bend the tab back out a little bit so that it will contact the new bulb...

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

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.

SOURCE: Amana refrigerator not running but light and water dispenser work

Hi, Remove the front kick plate at the bottom and locate the defrost timer box. You will see a hole and there will be a round switch you can turn. Turn in clock wise and see if the refrigerator starts.
If it starts, the timer needs changed. If it does not starts. locate the cold control (thermostat)
Check continuity on the switch. If it is the on position and the circuit is open, you need to replace it.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

I have an Amana refrigerator door light switch part# C8967502 that is no longer being made. Is there another mfg. who makes a switch that could replace the original Amana switch Thank you Denis Subler


I'd think that any of the local appliance repair shops would have an old stock of those replacement switches. Sure, maybe Amana doesn't have them, they dump old stock, but they dump them to repair shops!
In any case, any "normally open" switch can be retrofitted, even in-frame burglar alarm contacts can be used for that application. The switch when pressed IN is open, not letting power come to the bulb. When the door opens, the switch pops out and "closes" the circuit to let power to the bulb.
You may even find on available to retrofit, at Radio Shack.

I HAVE AMANA FRIDGE FREEZER AND THE DOOR SWITCH IS BROKEN BUT THEY NO LONGER MAKE THE PART. ITHINK I MAY BE ABLE TO USE THE MAYTAG PART


Yes, if the maytag part fits, then it may work in the Amana refrigerator. It's just a switch that carries the current for the light bulb.

Broken light switch on fridge door


Any appliance parts store can get this switch.
Yes you can DIY. Take a butter knife and CAREFULLY pry the broken switch from the cabinet. Be careful not to scratch the plastic liner around the switch.
Remove the 2 wires, place them on the new switch and POP the new switch in place.
If this is a half-moon switch make sure it is installed in the correct direction.

Refrigerator light will not go off


How do you know it wont go out if you close the door? More than likely the light switch is bad its located in the middle at the top when you open the door.Push it in, if the light stays on see if something it blocking it, if not replace the switch.
