Front light will not work

I cannot get the top cover off inside the refer door to check for broken wires to the light bulb socket. Yes the bulb is good, the bottom light works and the wiring diagram shows that they are connected together. I took out the two 1/4" hex screws behind the cover but cannot figure out what else is holding it in place.
Thank you, Dave

Before you go any farther stop. Unplug the refrigerator for the wall receptacle then look into the light socket (use a mirror if necessary), now see that contact point in the bottom of the socket? Raise that contact point to where it will ouch the bulb when you screw it back in. Now screw in the bulb plug in the refrigerator and open the door. Did I do OK ?

    The suggestion by Keith Smith worked like a charm. I didn't have a crochet hook so I straightened a paper clip, bent the end to 90 degrees with needle nose pliers and wrapped it from end to end in electricians tape. Worked like a charm.

I have a 2011 Daelim S3 and I have a problem with lights. Front headlight is unstable. During running it changes light power several times. Also front led lights blinks as motor works.


Hi, Pedro if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
9. Weak charging alternator/generator.
10. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

I have a Chevrolet cobalt and the left turn signal will not work the inside light on dash flashes fast. I have changed the light bulb still doesn't work.


Fast flashing usually indicates that one of the exterior bulbs isn't functioning. You've checked front and rear signal lights, right? If the bulb is good, it could be corrosion in the socket, bad ground, broken wire, etc.

Hotpoint quadrio fridge bulb not working


Hello Donna;

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

Ok, lets fix the problem:

1.) The light bulb is a special bulb designed to operated in cold temperatures. Some food markets carry them. They cost $10.00-$12.00 each. A normal household bulb will fail.

2.) Assuming you have the correct light bulb. With the refrigerator door open, is the light on? Push the light switch, does the light go off? Light switches either have a small whit plunger or a curved actuator.

3.) Ok, before we assume a bad switch. Unplug the refrigerator. Remove the light bulb. With a flat head screw driver, lift the copper contact in the bulb socket just a little bit, to make sure the copper contact is not depressed and not making contact with the bulb. Put the bulb back in, plug your refrigerator back in. Does the bulb light?

4.) Now we have narrowed the problem down to the light switch. The light switch is normally mounted on the inside wall. It may also be part of the top door hinge assembly (Push pin). If it is in a bottom freezer it is located on the inside top liner in the middle. These switched have pop in retaining clips. With a small flat head screw drive or a peeling knife gradually pry the switch out. You will see either two or three connectors. Remove the connectors noting how the wire leads are attached, The wire leads are short. Be carful not to let they fall down into the liner wall. Lets check the switch, if you have a multi-meter, set your meter to the lowest Ohms. With one meter lead on one switch contact and the other meter lead on the other switch contact, you should get a reading of '0' Ohms. Anything else then the switch is bad.
Oh, you do not have a multi-meter, rest assured if you check the above you have a contact switch problem. Get the model number of your unit. Usually located on the fresh food section wall. Call you local appliance parts supplier and get a new switch.

If you have a push pin switch in the top door hinge, there are either 1 or 2 screws to be removed to remove the hinge cover access the switch.

Samsung has magnetic contact switches. In the door gasket, as with all door gaskets there is a flexible magnet strip. This strip makes contact at the top of the refrigerator front frame. In this case the magnet door gasket strip may be broken and had slipped out of position. In the case you must replace the door gasket. You can physically feel this magnet strip.

Front parking lights stop working. Tested all fuses and other moduels etc in fuse areas under bonnet and inside car all tested okay. All other lights work and tail lights etc. I changed the parker light...


It could be a ground problem. See if you can trace the ground wire from the bulb socket. If you can identify which connector of the bulb socket is the ground, you can do a continuity test from the socket to the frame or body, using a multi meter. You can also use the multi meter to check for voltage at the socket; positive lead of meter to positive connector of socket and negative lead of meter (black) to a ground. If you get voltage ( about 12 V ) then the problem is a broken ground wire.

Lights inside does not work


Unplug the refrigerator and remove the 40 watt incandescent light bulb and clean the socket. Make sure that it is completely clean of any rust or debris. If rusted get sandpaper or an emery board and rub the points that are rusty. Before putting the light bulb back make sure it does work and the filament is not broken and if so replace with a new bulb. Secondly check the on and off switch triggered by the door closing. Pop it out with a flat tip screw driver and check for black spots, or dislodged wires. Clean and re-connect the wires. Pop it back in and with the bulb secured in the socket plug the refrigerator back and see if the light works. Good Luck

My right front turn signal wont work the bulb is new the fuse is good what else can i check? it is on a 2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac, the parking light works just not the turn signal.


Check the terminals inside the bulb socket also you could turn on right side turn signals and while holding socket in hand move wiring at base of socket to see if you might have wiring problem if that is ok leave signal and start moving back harness to see if you have a broken wire.
