Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
The light bulb and the door switch are a direct single circuit.
Un plug your refrigerator or turn power off at the circuit breaker.
The switch is flush against the liner wall. They pop in and out. With a small flat head screw driver work your way around the switch until you pop it out. Disconnect the two contacts. BE CAREFUL THE CONTACTS HAVE SHORT LEADS AND MAY FALL BACK INSIDE THE LINER WALL. Hold onto the leads after disconnecting. Connect the new door switch and pop into the liner wall.
You might as well go ahead and purchase the door switch first. This is your problem.
Go into the following website. Put in your model number. Diagrams will appear. Select the diagram with the door switch. It will give you the part number and cost of the switch. Your model number is located in your fresh food section on a label on the upper side of the liner.

You didn't say what type of refrigerator.
It could be that the switch in the door frame is not working or is stuck.

My fridge and freezer stopped working. Nothing's running. It doesn't cool or freeze. None of the mechanical parts are working. Only the lightbulb turns on. What can be wrong?


if removing the mother board made no difference to the fridge operation then it would be logical that the mother board is faulty
These machines do not like power surges( can originate many miles away)
have a technician check it out

My Whirlpool et21pkxgw01 refrigerator's lightbulbs just went out. At the same time (I think) it seemed to quit cooling the fridge section. Freezer seems to be working normally. I can feel a tiny amoun


The fact that the fresh food section is not cooling well should not be related to the light bulbs not working. The cooling problem most likely is caused by one of three things that have failed. CLICK HERE=> ET21PKXGW01 Parts Manual Go to page 5 of the above parts manual and item location 4 is the defrost timer=> 2193084 Defrost Timer Next go to page 7 and part location number4 and number 8 are the=> 2166124 Defrost Heater Assembly and the=> 2182380 Defrost Thermostat When you are ready to defrost manually and find the problem I will be ready to help explain how to test these components.

Blinking Fridge Light and Both Fridge & Freezer Warming Up


I would say to contact Servall, a component source for all appliance repairs. They have a Web site and are helpful. You should also try the Web for any repair Manuals for your unit.

There are timers for the Defrost cycle. I am familiar with the old mechanical type, the blinking of the computer type is often in a Code which diagnoses the problem. You need the Manual to translate what the blinks mean.

My lightbulb in my fridge won't go on


Check the tab in the center of he bulb socket. Unplug the frig first and gently pull it up a little. You should be using a 40 watt appliance bulb not a 60. If the tab is not the problem you may need a new switch.

Whirlpool gold refridgerator light not working and is making funny noise


Had the identical symptoms with my Whirlpool Gold GS6SHEXNB00 side-by-side refrigerator. Had a technician come on site, indicated it was the "circuit board/ timer" (Whirlpool part # 1394052). Board is accessible from behind fridge (lower left side in a white plastic housing to left of compressor).

Swapped the board out (noticed a scorched circuit on the old circuit board). Lightbulbs now work, temperature readouts also good to go.

Short in freezer?


IF THE WIRES SHORTED, AND THE DOOR WAS REPLACED,
WAS IT COMPLETE OR WAS THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY TRANSFERRED TO THE NEW DOOR? IF THE ASSEMBLY ISN'T NEW, THE CONTROL BOARD IN THE ASSEMBLY MAY HAVE BEEN DAMAGED FROM THE WIRE SHORT.
