Why won't interior lights go off


Bad door switch. Replace it or just ignore it. Use LED light so it will not produce heat in the frig.

Gsc3pgxcfss warm fridge, freezer working fine, lights off in fridge


James, not sure I understand your message when you say both lights go off, but later say lights begin working. Do you mean they go off when you push the buttons at the door? And when you say no cold air comes from the freezer, is the freezer door closed? See if air begins flowing with freezer door open. If so it would indicate the return air path from the refrigerator to freezer is blocked.....damper staying closed or evaporator coil frozen up. The return air path has to be open to allow the freezer to keep sending out cold air to refrigerator when freezer door is closed. You might thoroughly defrost to make sure coil is not frozen.
If the door button for the refrigerator light is bad it can signal that the door is open all the time, so the freezer will never send cold air to the refrigerator. And that will be good news. Door switches are cheap. If you don't have a volt meter and know how to check switch, just remove the door switch from the refrigerator, leaving wires dangling, and close the door with a thermometer inside to see if it begins cooling (or just wait a while) I had that problem a year ago and was happy to find a bad door switch. More often it's a frozen coil, and that can be more expensive to fix. Sometimes you can discover a bad switch by pushing in the door button and the light stays on, but it doesn't sound like your situation.....sounds more like a frozen coil. If so, maybe all this extra information will help someone else.

Light stays on


Check the door frame for a protruding small lever that gets pushed down when the door closes. If one is visible, that should be the light switch, which probably went bad and needs to be replaced. Without a model # hard to say how the light are set to go off, but most use the above method, hope this helps.

The interior lights stay on when the doors are shut and sometimes go off when you open the doors.


I have the same issue! It seems to me that the lights stay on until the bulbs get to hot and thats when they turn off on their own until they cool down enough to turn on. That leads me to believe that the little buttons that the doors push in (at the top hinge side of each door) are no longer turning the lights off when doors close. A wiring issue, or something. I litterally just took the bulbs out of the refrigerator. The freezer switch/lights work fine. I hope to find an answedr, if i do, I'll let you know!!

Refrigerator inside light does not go off even the doors are close


you have a bad door switch,look around the frame where the doors close onto,you should see a switch,push it in and see if the lights go out,if they don't change out that switch.you'll need to give the parts store the model number that's in the machine and they'll give you what you need.if the lights shut off when you push in the switch then your doors are not closing correctly,remove the bulbs for now,i've seen plastic parts inside the machine melted from the lights stating on,those bulbs are the same as the kids easy bake ovens and the heat will do damage

What is the light switch button for in the fridge section? why does the light stay on in the fridge with the door closed when the switch inside is on ?


The switch is curved so when you close the door the light will also close.How do you know if the light is on when the door closes?Try pushing on the switch and you will see that the light will close.If that is what you are asking.If you push on the switch and the light stays on then you have a faulty switch. hope this helped:)

I have a side by side Viking refrigerator and after leaving the door open a little too long the lights went out in both the refrigerator and freezer. I figured that they would go back on automaticlly after...


Remove the center grill of the top grill and shut the power off and back on, the lights should reset

When the lights are working open the Ref door then close the freezer drawer, watching to see if the light in the freezer shuts off. It should shut off when the freezer is about 1" from closing. If it stays on until the door is fully closed then there is a problem with the light switch in the freezer.

Normally when you leave the doors open until the lights shut off, it should reset when both doors are closed

I just bought the SamsungRF267AB bottom freezer refrigerator.  Amoung the features that must be disabled for shabbos are the lights, motor cuttoff and inside panel indicators.  On most refrigerators there is a swich that you can tape in the depressed mode that will trick the unit into thinking the door is still closed.  With this unit it's magnetic.  you need to place a magnet on the top of the door frame to make the refigerator think the door is still closed.  I hope this helps.
