The light in my fridge will not work,

I have replaced the bulb with a new one, and the door plunger works perfectly well. The fridge is otherwise perfect. Is there a fuse I can check? Has anyone a suggestion?

Look on the back of the fridge, you may find a schematic. Any fuses will be marked, and a place to test the circuit may be available.

SOURCE: bulbs and bottom pcb blew, replaced but still not working

the start and run capacitors of the compressor can go short circuit and cause a big spike that can blow the bulbs, trip fuse etc. Inspect the capacitors for splits etc, you may well find that the start cap has blown and so there will not be enough current to get the compressor running.

SOURCE: light bulb replacement doesn't work

Hi Liz,
The reason they want you to disconnect the power is to prevent shock while installing the new bulb. The door switch controls the light in the freshfood so you really do not need to disconnect power, just be careful not to stick your finger into the socket. In most cases the bulb is hard to get securely screwed into the socket. The moisture in the refrigerator causes defect in the metal around the bulb socket and causes the bulb not to make a secure connectioin. So to repair your problem you can first off make sure the bulb is securely screwed into the socket. If it does not work you can check the voltage at the socket for the 110 volts. You can do this with any volt meter if you have one. Sometime the new bulbs can also be bad, its rare but possible. If you are not getting the proper voltage to the socket then you may need a door switch. If you have another light working in the freshfood then the door swith will not be the problem. The door switch is the only power feed swith to the socket, so one of those two will definately fixYa. Good luck and have a great day.

SOURCE: my freezer is working perfectly but the fridge is not

The channel in the back were the cool air comes down from the freezer to the fridge may be iced up. Try defrosting the fridge/freezer for much longer than usual, all day if necessary.

SOURCE: Sharp SJ-42-WH self-defrosting fridge. Freezer

I recently had exactly the same problme with this model refrigerator. I found the problem to be the defrost timer. It is located behind the panel on the back of the refrigerator where the mains cord is located, you will need to replace it with the exact same model. I am in Australia and managed to find the exact part on ebay cheaply from a local appliance parts supplier, any appliance parts supplier that deals in Sharp refrigerators should be able to help you.

You will have to defrost the refrigerator overnight again before doing this repair.

Of course there are a couple of other components that could cause this problem, you can acutally check to see if the defrost time is moving by taking note of it's current position and then checking it every thirty minutes or so. If it does not move then it could be faulty, make sure also that power is getting to the timer as well.

Freezer lights not working tried bulbs in fridge area and they work so its not the bulbs


Then it's the freezer door switch that controls the light. Although, modern fridges have electronic control boards designed to make your life miserable. Instead of a simple switch with a wire to a light bulb, you may have an entire computer board controlling it. The boards are _always_ expensive as heck. You can try applianceparts.com for replacement parts for your specific model.

(It was the words "Professional Series" that gave me "pause" regarding the electronic wallet cleansing you may have to deal with. I'm sorry, but I'm an old appliance tech that has lived long enough to see these appliances become unnecessarily too expensive to repair a problem that would otherwise have been an incredibly simple and cheap to repair... and frequently not even need a new part. Technology does no favors for owners regarding appliances. It is a cheap way out for the manufacturers because electronic circuit boards made in China are cheaper than the electro-mechnaical devices they replaced, yet cost many hundreds of dollars to buy a replacement circuit board; which is quite literally a scam designed to make you buy a new appliance).

Are you using the newer energy-efficient light bulbs? Most of the problems I have encountered are related to the newer bulbs. Sometimes they just do not make a good connection for some reason. If you are using the older-style bulb, try cleaning the contact points (with the opener unplugged of course), they can sometimes accumulate gunk.

Otherwise, it could be a loose wire- or bad receiver board. Just to make sure, though, definitely try a number of new bulbs to be certain that the bulbs are good.

Also, make sure you check the balance of your garage door, to make sure the springs are properly counter-balancing the weight of the garage door. Otherwise, the opener will work overtime and not last as long. You can see a how-to video on our website.

No light in refer but works in freezer


Check the door switch to see if is working and try another light bulb or try the light bulb somewhere else to see if the light bulb is good. Check to if vent holes coming from the feezer are blocked by something in the fridge. This will make it feel like your fridge is not working.

Light switch does not work


1. Check to see if the bulb has blown.

2. Check the plunger switch is making contact. ( the light must be on when the
door is open meaning that the plunger is sticking outward. the light should go
off when you press the plunger in)
