Whirlpool gold side by side refrigerator. Light does not come on in refrigerator side. Changed light bulb, still did not work. Pulled door switch and checked continuity on switch - appears OK. Check voltage on wires to switch, read about 36 volts ac.

    I don't think that's it. One other thing I forgot to mention is that the lights on the controls inside the refrigerator do not work either. Cooling in both refrigerator and freezer seems to be normal.

Nice job on the voltage checks! Now, are you checking 'across' the switch, or one side to ground?
If you go across, or one end then the other end to ground, you should see 120 volts to ground. If you measure one end to the other end it should be '0' volts if the switch is closed. 36 volts does not compute.

The socket will need to be replaced. You can get them at repairclinic.com and wire them in.

Hi,
This looks like the problem is in the control board. A diode is shorting the relay, also has burned off trace. Look for diode to replace.

Thanks!

Changed light bulb still not working. Top bulb refrig side


There is a switch for the door that is depressed when the door closes. If the switch has failed the light will not work at all. You can unplug the unit and gently pop the switch out usually with a knife blade by depressing the plastic release tab (If you can find them) and then pull it out. Remove the two wires from the switch and mate them as best you can so they make contact and will not ground to anything. Plug in the unit and see if the light works. If the light comes on the switch is bad. Unplug the unit and reinstall the slight switch.

If you still don't have a light there is a possibility of the light socket being defective or a wiring problem in the chassis.
