Re: fridge bulb burns out in fridge side

Check to see if the light is turning off when you close the refrig door. its possible the door is out of adjustment and is not hitting the light switch properly when the door closes

Kenmore sidexside light burned out. replaced bulb, won't light.

There is a plastic switch that works the light in the door jam. Unplugg the fridge before popping this plastic switch out. I would order one first but if your light fixture is in good shape and not burn on the inside and the wires look good it is most likely the door switch. The door switch is just like an on off switch for any light its just spring loaded to turn on when the door opens. good luck

Lights in fridge side are all out. After changing bulbs, sounds like a relay sticking and will knock out all lights in fridge unless we loosen off the bulbs in the fridge side

your main control board Part#4334000 is defective in lower left rear of unit remove it from the white plastic box and underneath it will have a burned spot on the printed circuit trace get it at appliance parts pros 1-877-477-7278

Light is off in fridge and the bulb is NOT burned out

first unplug the machine then:
check the lamp scoket for flattened metal bars
if they are not touching the bulb pull them up to contact the side and, bottom of the lamp base replace the bulb and plug the machine in then:if that didn't work; if you can substitute another new identical bulb then: check again next check for a broken door switch

Light bulb

Sounds like you got a defective bulb. Make sure it is for 120 volts or thereabouts....not 6 or 12.

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.
