My interior lights in my Viking VCSB423 are out, I tried replacing 2 of the bulbs, it went out after door was open for an extended period of time,(like 10 minutes)

sandra, not being sarcastic but why keep the fridge open for ten minutes? It can cause other problems too. Try not to keep the fridge open for long after bulb change and see if it works. Good luck.

Light bulb burned out


Did you have a hinge kit recently replaced? If so call them back they missed something. If not, look into the light circuit a if it goes to ground this light issue would happen. Most of these issues I found in the upper section behind the upper grills. I hope this helps

There is a switch that tells the computer if the doors are open. If it fails, the comp. will think that the door is open & prevent water & ice dispersion. With this problem the light should stay on. Possibly when the power was restored it spiked, burned out the bulb and killed the door switch.

Both of our light bulbs on top burned out the same time/day. Model # GLRT218WD My husband changed one light bulb and it didn't work. Does that whole piece come out of the top, where the light bulbs...

Check the door switch. Alot of the time when the freezer door stays open it creates condensation and than when you close the door is can freeze the door switch closed so the switch thinks that the door is always closed. If you need further assistance or this does not cure your problem please reply.

Interior refrigerator lights (2 bulbs at top of cabinet)

Did you try tightening the light bulbs? Try changing them. Then, check the spring mechanisms in the side of the door - perhaps they are stuck shut (these are the clips or buttons that control the light). Maybe it is a problem with the alarm?

Light bulb in new bottom freezer model

Maybe the little man inside that shuts it off is on vacation. Just kidding! With the door open, look for a little trigger/switch that shuts the light off when you close the door, press it and see if the light goes out. Out of curiosity, what wattage bulb do you have in there that would melt the cover. It should be no larger than 40w, 25w being the best.
