Light bulbs burned out after leaving door ajar

We left the door open to he fridge and the bulbs burned out. Everyone says to unplug but the fridge is built in. Do you think if I shut the breaker off that it would work?

    So I shut the breaker off and tested one bulb. It worked! So I shut the breaker again to put the other three bulbs in and the only one that worked is the original first one that I put in. Very strange! Any help would be appreciated as this is so frustrating!

Light not working in fridge. Replaced bulb but still not working?


Probably the door switch. With the fridge unplugged, remove the door switch (pry out with a screwdriver), short the two wires (leave the door open). Plug in the fridge and if the light is on, it's the switch.

Light bulb burned out


Hi,

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

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.

When a refrigerator door is left open the freezer will continue to run to keep it cold and since it can't cool an open area it will freeze up on the inside, to resolve this you will need to unplug the fridge and open the freezer door and allow the freezer to thaw completely, once it is thawed you can plug it back in and everything should go back to normal after a 24 hour period

Door ajar light stays on after i close the door


I had the same problem in my 98 and 96 Sables. Ford dealer says it is a problem with a sensor, located behind the left rear quarter panel. It doesn't recognize when the doors are closed, therefore it leaves the dome light, etc. on--sometimes briefly, but possibly until the battery goes dead. Worse when the weather is damp. Their solution was to throw it on the diagnostic computer BUT ONLY WHILE THE PROBLEM IS ACTIVELY HAPPENING, then replace the sensor--they quoted me a minimum of $300. I leave the cover off the dome light, and pull the bulb when necessary.

Whirlpool gold refridgerator light not working and is making funny noise


I had the same problem. Model Number GS5SHAXNL00 Light wouldn't work on the fridge side and the led's wouldn't light up. Ended up being a blown circuit path on the control board.

Check the picture.f21d241.jpg

All I did was soder a wire between the 2 points that path was connecting and *BINGO* the lights are back on!

Hope this helps someone. To find the burned out spot just look for a little black smudge on the white plastic case when you remove the board.
