Light bulb won't work

My refrigerator was left ajar overnight and the light bulb went out. Two light bulbs later, it won't come back on. I tested the light bulbs and they are okay. Any suggestions?

Use a VOM(meter) and check for power to the bulb receptacle. If no power,
Remove and test the door switch.

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

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Door ajar warning light/interior light won't come on

Good Afternoon bibliophilel, based on the symptoms you are describing, may I suggest resetting the refrigerator. This can be done by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait roughly ten minutes and then turn the unit back on. If the issue persists, then more than likely the light socket and/or the door switch that triggers the bulb and alarm are faulty. In this regard, I would suggest contacting an Authorized Service Technician that will be able to assist you in the exact diagnosis of the appliance and repair.

How to change a bulb in the Kenmore refrigerator

Most likely, you never notice the light bulb in your freezer or refrigerator until it is not working. Then it is time to replace the bulb. This is especially important with freezers, which are often in areas with poorer lighting, like basements or garages. Fortunately, the task is a simple one.

1 Unplug the freezer to prevent an accidental shock when you remove the light bulb.

  • 2 Open the door of the freezer, look at the top inside edge of the freezer, below the door seal and back about 1 to 2 inches from the edge. You will see a small plastic or metal panel that protects the bulb from damage and shields your eyes from the direct light of the bulb when the door is opened. Reach behind the guard and remove the bulb by twisting it to the left.
  • 3 Put your new bulb in by inserting it into the socket and twisting it to the right to screw it in. Be sure you use a freezer bulb--it is built a little tougher and is the correct wattage. You can find them at appliance or hardware stores. Plug the freezer back in to test operation of the bulb.

  • Have a nice day! : ))

    How to change light bulb in refrigerator


    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

    How do i change the rear brake light in a toyota corolla 2003

  • Pop the trunk.
  • Look at the backside of the tail light area – it’s wide open. Turn the affected light bulb socket to the left. It’ll take some force, but you won’t break it.
  • Once it unlocks, you can pull the light bulb out.
  • Push the new bulb in.
  • Put the socket back into its place by pushing it in, then turning to the right. It’ll lock back into place.
  • Test the brake light to make sure it works.

    Left rear Tail lamp not working (bulb and fuse is fine)

    If you have access to a simple 12 volt test light, you can remove the bulb you replaced, turn on the turn signal and park lights and see if the test light lights up. If the turn signal contact blinks the test light and the tail contact lights the test light, you know your power supply to the bulb is good.
    Next you will check the ground.
    Using your test light, carefully touch the tail light contact with the test light tip and touch the test light ground to the socket ground. If the ground is good the test light should light.
    Let me know what you find and we will go from there.
