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...

Most light switches snap in place. If there is no apparent screw and the switch seems to have an adequate lip all around it, use a putty knife or butter knife push under that lip at one of the shorter sides and gently try to pry it up. It should pop out. the two wires are usually attached by spade connectors that just pull off. Doesn't matter which wire goes on each. Sears should be able to get a new one. But before you go that far be sure the bulb is not burnt out first. You should also take the switch with you to sears or have a friend test the switch to be sure it is truly bad..

If the refrigerator isn't cool, you need to answer some questions, then see if the compressor is running.
First, answer these questions:
Is the refrigerator completely dead?
If so, see “It's stopped completely.”
The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help.
If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:
The overload, relay, or capacitor
The defrost timer
The condenser fan motor
The freezer and the fridge are cooled by the same system, air is moved to the fridge by a fan from the freezer, either the circulation fan is defective or the fridge thermostat is defective.
Don't forget to rate;
