Question about Kenmore 62062 Electric Dryer
Checking or replacing door switch help! like a diagram or location assistance
If you open the operator console, there should be a wiring diagram located inside for technical assistance. Make sure you unplug the dryer before servicing.
Now...to get to the door switch. You will need to perform the following steps:
1. Remove the operator console. It is either removed by inserting a putty knife under the each front corner of the console and pushing in to release a retaining clip. Or, there will be a screw on each side holding it down.
2. Once the console is removed. The top panel must be removed. If there are three 1/4 inch screws under the console holding it in place, you will need to remove them first before the top will come off. The top panel will then slide towards you and then lift up. Some top panels will simply slide forward and come off without removing any screws. Double check to be sure.
3. Located along the front of the dryer under the top panel will be a series of wires. One set will go to a lamp socket and the other set of wires goes to the door switch. NOTE: Some dryers have a lamp socket in the rear of the unit away from the door opening. The door switch will have a connector plug. Take a small screwdriver and gently lift up on each side of the plug and it will pull apart.
4. On the side of the plug still attached to the door, connect a multimeter across the pins of the plug and take resistance readings while opening and closing the door. You should see a change in resistance from open to short. If the resistance does not vary, the switch is bad. Another method you can try is to jumper the wires on the section of plug that is not connected to the door to see if the unit will operate with the switch by-passed.
Make sure you unplug the dryer before servicing and only energize it if you wish to attempt the by-pass method of testing. I do not recommend bypassing the door switch as a fix, either. The dryer will not shut off when you open the door, which means you would have to rotate the timer or unplug the dryer to stop it.

I appreciate your post, Deborah!
From what you have described you need to replace the door light switch on your Frigidaire freezer. In order to assist you further I would need your model number. You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside wall of your freezer. I look forward to assisting you. -Matt
