Hi, Sometimes when you put the bulb in, it feels like it is in all the way but just needs another 1/4 turn. If you use a rag and grab the butl with the palm off you hand, try and turn it a little more.
If that doesn't work, loosen the bulb a little and tighten it up again. Also, make sure you are using an appliance bulb instead of a regular household bulb. The appliance bulb will last longer.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

My interior lights in my Viking VCSB423 are out, I tried replacing 2 of the bulbs, it went out after door was open for an extended period of time,(like 10 minutes)


sandra, not being sarcastic but why keep the fridge open for ten minutes? It can cause other problems too. Try not to keep the fridge open for long after bulb change and see if it works. Good luck.

Fridge light does not work.


Some appliances have electrical schematics on the back of the fridge, some are hidden behind rear cover. Wire,Switch or fuse..not much else it could be.

Inside refrigirator light stopped work. Bulb is ok; works in other lamps.


The likely culprit is the door switch on fridges in general. This because it is basically the only moving part in the circuit. Depending on it's location, it may be subjected to condensation, extremes of temperatures or even spilled liquids that dry and become sticky - resulting in the switch not popping out when the door is opened. Also inspect the light bulb socket itself for dampness or white, flaky dust-like particles. Do NOT attempt to clean the socket while the fridge is plugged in. These last two possibilities should be checked first, as the others are a little more involved.

If the door switch pops out with the door open - it means the internal workings of the switch are probably bad, or may be something else entirely. Locating the problem will require disconnecting the power cord and disassembling parts of the fridge in order to gain access to the switch terminals and related wiring. In the case of dampness or other debris in the light socket, it can be wiped clean now that the fridge is unplugged. Try a new bulb in the socket and plugging the fridge back in before proceeding. A meter and understanding of electrical test equipment along with the fridge's service manual will be needed to continue from here with the fridge unplugged again.

Even without a meter (and the rest of the items listed above) you could simply remove and replace the switch if it is suspect - and hope that it was the cause of the failure. Pay attention to orientation of the switch, any clips, screws or fasteners holding the switch in place. Disconnect wiring only after sketching or photographing the switch and the wires that are connected to each of the terminals. Remove and replace the switch and wiring. Plug back in and test the light.

Good luck - I hope this was helpful!

Power and no lites in refrig/freezer; beeping


depending on age of unit, the problem may lie in the light bulb,well the door closing anyway, the newer unit s actuall will shut down all interior lights, in the evnet that teh door is left open for more then 2-3 min, so its possible that a light switch is not being activated so the uit thinks the door is open and has shut down the rest of lights, cooling however does continue normally.

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.
