Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
There are 2 different systems I know of for the light shut off because of excessive door open time. One system uses a heat sensor near the light bulb to shut off the light if it gets too hot there. To turn light back on that sensor needs to cool back down after door is closed. Second system for the light off---is that the time light on is actually timed by a electronic part on the mother board. It would come back on until the mother board senses the door closed for a similar amount of time. sometimes just closing and reopening the door will bring it back on, All depends on the type light system.

There's probably something sticky inside the button between the plunger and the housing or the spring inside is weak. Try to clean it out. If that doesn't work then replace it.

The Er Co error code signifies a communication error between the display control board on the freezer door and the main power board on the outer back panel of the refrigerator.
Check the wiring and connections between the low voltage interface and the main high voltage board.
If you are able to unplug the refrigerator and remove the cover over the control board on the back of the refrigerator,
you can check the wiring connection on the main control board.
If this wiring connection is okay, check the wire harness connection under the hinge cover on the top of the left hand refrigerator door.
If these connections are okay, then you will need access the wire harness connection in the dispenser.
