Refrigerator light will not go off

I have an Amana side by side and the light in the refrigerator will not go off, even when the door is closed. The top shelf, where the light is, is fairly hot.

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.

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.

Restart after year; light goes on nothing happens - no compressor

If doors were close during the time of not using the refrigerator, I believe the thermostat has become stuck. Straight wire the two wires on back of thermostat to see if compressor starts. Unplug first. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Amana 22 side-by-side refrigerator, freezer door opens slightly

There are three possibilities to this problem:

1. Door seal which should be magnetic is faulty.
2. Ice maker caddy (container) has not socketed properly into ice maker rear drive tang.
3. Door stay closed plastic hing pieces are damaged. These are tapered pieces that fit in hinge area that allow door weight to help close and hold door. Some are black in color and some are white. As far as I know they are interchangeable.
