Look at the switch. Something is hitting the button. It is around the door flange somewhere.

Lights in my kenmore refrigerator, freezer on bottom, burned out. I purchased two 60w bulbs and replaced them. I plugged in the refrigerator and the lights were on. Then a couple of minutes later,


Hello Sharon;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You can not put normal house hold appliance bulbs in appliances. There are special bulbs for refrigerators, clothes dryers and close washers.

The bulbs are usually available in the local market and marked; "Refrigerator" and Freezer".

You may have a bad door switch. But, I am more prone to go with the wrong service bulb.

Your Friend,

Frigidaire FFHS2612LS4 wont stop beeping


Hey Brandon, this is JK. Thank you for your post. I understand that your refrigerator is beeping none stop. When the door(s) have been opened for longer than 10 minutes, an audio alarm sounds and the interior lights shut off. This protects the liner from melting due to the heat produced by the light bulbs. The alarm will sound every two minutes until the doors are closed. Once the doors are closed, the alarm will reset. The refrigerator will also beep on some models to inform the user that the door has been left open and the cool air is escaping. Check to make certain that the gaskets on both doors have no gaps and that the appliance is maintaining the desired temperature. If all of these suggestions pan out and the problem still persist, think about what may have happened prior to this occurrence. For instance, did you notice any error codes, odors, or other strange functions prior to this issue? If you are still having these issues and can think of anything in particular, please feel free to reconnect.
Hope this helps!

Lights Out and Door Open Indicator Flashes


Hi,

The problem is above the doors at the switch, the unit can't see the switch opening (closing the door opens the switch). The linkage is where the problem is, the light go out to protect the fridge from getting too warm and the lights are remaining on after you close the door.

I hope this helped. Good Luck

The light in my refrigerator goes off when I open door


There is a switch, almost like a button, most likely it is out when you close the door as designed, but then you open it, switch is sticking closed. Try messing with it or moving it some. If not might have to just replace the switch. Should be a cheap repair.

Blinking light in refrigerator


I think that's the light letting you know the door is open so it won't drop ice. When I held in the catch on the left side (as if the door was closed) the red light went off for me.

The ice maker is not making ice


I assume "light flashing inside@the switch" means the inside light turns on when you open the door, and goes off when you close the door, or depress the switch manually.

Sounds like the fill valve has failed at the bottom back of the refrigerator.

Reply back your findings if that is not it and I will give you more suggestions.

Refrigerator is beeping intermittantly with door closed


Len, I have had many service calls regarding this problem. The problem is the inside door switch. LG missed the tolerences a little. What I have had to do is get a piece of plastic with some double phase tape, about the same size of the switch and mount it so when closing the door it will put more pressure on the switch. The piece should be at least 1/8 inch thick. I believe LG has come out with a kit but the aforementioned works better...Catriver...post back.
