Try checking the light switch, If the switch isn't closing sometimes it will shut off from the computerized board.

My Samsung refrigerator won't stop beeping and light inside is out


OK we know it's a Samsung Refrigerator probably 1 of about 50 models that Samsung sells. The model number is on a plate inside the refrigerator. If you don't have a user manual use the model number at searspartsdirect.com to view or
download the user manual. If sears has ever sold this model it will be there! Use the troubleshooting section to find out why it's beeping. It may be as simple as needing to clean the door seals so they don't leak air. Remove the light bulb cover if there is one and replace the light bulb with one of the same kind.

REPLACE LIGHT IN FRIDGE


Hi,
- Unplug the refrigerator from the electrical outlet.
- Locate the bulb on the inside of the refrigerator.

- Remove the light cover. Usually these just snap off, but, on some models, they may need to be unscrewed. Use your screwdriver to unscrew the light cover retaining screws (if required).
- Unscrew the old light bulb.

- Screw in the new light bulb.

- Replace the light cover. Plug the refrigerator back in. Test your new light bulb.

Hope this helps, please rate if the solution was helpful, thanks!

How to change bulb in fridge


To change a light bulb in the refrigerator, remove the plastic cover that covers the light bulb. This cover should just pop off by simply squeezing the cover gently. Look at the bulb to see how many watts it is and the type of bulb, you can buy a new bulb at any home improvement center. Insert the new light bulb and replace the cover. If the light on the refrigerator is not working after changing the bulb, unplug the refrigerator. Using a screwdriver, gently pop out the push-button collar on the inside side wall of the refrigerator. There will be two wires connected to the push button switch. Remove the two wires and replace the switch. You can purchase this part at any appliance repair center that carries parts. Make sure you write down the model and make of your refrigerator and take the information with you before attempting to purchase parts.

Inside light went out...replacing bulb did not work, any help or advise? thanks! Mike


Many times when the inside light fails to operate...it could be:

(1) A bad bulb ...replace with a known good one.
(2) Bad connection of the light bulb in its socket.
(Remove the bulb and spray the socket with WD-40 Spray Lubricant) then...
(3) Replace the bulb with a known good bulb..use a dry rag to securely tighten the bulb in its socket.
(4) The "Door Switch" could be bad. Replace bad "Door Switch" with new one.

Hopes this helps....Good Luck! ...... HandyHenry

How to change light bulb in refrigerator


Hello,

Unplug the Whirlpool refrigerator from the electrical outlet.
Step 2
Locate the bulb on the inside of the Whirlpool refrigerator.
Step 3
Remove the light cover. Usually these just snap off, but, on some models, they may need to be unscrewed. Use your screwdriver to unscrew the light cover retaining screws (if required).
Step 4
Unscrew the old light bulb.
Step 5
Screw in the new light bulb.
Step 6
Replace the light cover. Plug the Whirlpool refrigerator back in. Test your new light bulb.
Also note that the below can also work

Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
Slide the light bulb cover toward the back of the compartment to release it from the light assembly.
Replace burned-out bulb(s) with appliance light bulb(s) no greater than 40 watts.
Replace the light bulb cover by inserting the tabs on the cover into the liner holes on each side of light assembly. Slide the cover toward the front until it locks into place.

NOTE: Do not force the cover beyond its locking point; doing so may damage the light cover.
Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
To change the freezer light bulb:

Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.

NOTE: You may need to remove the upper freezer shelf or basket to access the light assembly.
The light bulb cover opens from the back. Firmly press forward on the notches in the back of the cover and pull down the cover.


Remove the cover and replace the burned-out bulb with an appliance bulb no greater than 40 watts.
Insert the front tabs of the cover into the liner and snap the back portion of the cover over the light assembly.
Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.

Good luck in applying the solution

Light bulbs have been replaced but don't light


Hello Binfull,

Since you replaced both bulbs with new ones and they still won't illuminate, there is a high probability that the open door switch is not working or if you have a newer style refridgerator then in some models if the electronic brain for that model sensed the door has been open for too long, it will shut off the lamps.. Try this.. unplug the firge for a minute or two then plug it back in. Check to see if that 'power up clear' cycle got the lights to illuminate. Also, if your model has a freezer that has lights in it check to see if they go on. Hope that helps you.. Good luck...

Light bulb


Sounds like you got a defective bulb. Make sure it is for 120 volts or thereabouts....not 6 or 12.
