The light bulb you bought was an appliance bulb,correct? the bulb screws in like any other bulb but has to be screwed really tight because of humidity in the refrigerator so this may be one solution the second is ; does your door switch work? this could be bad. to check, turn off power gently pry out the door switch, you can use a thin screwdriver . check the wires to see if one is burnt. if you have a multi meter put setting on ohms and pressing or releasing you will find if the switch has continuity. tak the wires of the switch first making note of where they goput one lead on common and other lead on one of the other two terminals one of them will give you continuity when pressed the other when it is released.if you are not comfortable doing this call a repairman. most likely though you will find the bulb wasn't tightened enough

Light doesn,t come on when door opens


Hi there, this sounds like either the bulb or the switch. However your "new bulb @switch" seems to imply that you have already checked them. Can you try to get a multi tester onto the bulb mount to check if there's any current going to the bulb because if it's not the bulb or switch then it has to be the circuit somewhere. I'm sorry but I don't think I have any more suggestions apart from 'put up with no light'. Sorry I can't help any more.

GE Monogram ZV950S D2SS range hood - lights on one side stopped working then on both sides. This happened as I was changing bulbs. Everything else works.


Light doesn't work
  1. Light bulb
If your refrigerator light does not power on, the first thing to replace would logically be the light bulb itself.
  1. Light assembly
If your refrigerator light does not power on and you have replaced the bulb, this is an indication that the light assembly may have malfunctioned and will require replacement.
  1. Light switch
If you notice that your refrigerator lights are not working, replace your refrigerator light bulb. If this does not correct the issue, proceed to check the power light switch.
  1. Door switch
If your refrigerator light is not working and it is not the bulb itself or the power light switch, the next thing to check is the door switch. This can be checked for continuity with an ohm meter. If there is no continuity present, the door switch will need to be replaced.
  1. Light socket
If your refrigerator light is not working after replacing the light bulb, check for a possible damaged light socket. If the socket is faulty, replace the part to get your refrigerator light to power on again.
  1. Light board
If the refrigerator light is not working the light board could be defective. The LEDs on this board are not repairable, so the entire board will need to be replaced.

Were is the freezer light bulb ?


Good Afternoon Friend, that's a great question!

It appears that you would need to remove the light cover to reach the light bulb of your Frigidaire refrigerator (LFUS2613LF0). However, before doing so it is very important to unplug your refrigerator and wear gloves when replacing light bulb to avoid getting cut. Once you have removed the light cover you should be able to reach the light bulb and replace it with an equivalent bulb. Then you may replace light cover and plug in your refrigerator. Hope this helps!

Freezer light does not come on when open have to jiggle swtch


Unplug the refrigerator and turn the bulb counterclockwise to remove it if the light still does not work. Insert the bulb back in the socket and turn it clockwise to tighten it. Plug the refrigerator in and reset the controls.

If the light still doesn't work, turn the control to the "Off" position and unplug the refrigerator. Remove the bulb and purchase an appliance bulb with the correct wattage. Insert the new bulb and turn it clockwise to tighten it. Plug the refrigerator in and turn the control away from the "Off" position.

Hi,
- Unplug the refrigerator from the electrical outlet.

- 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!
