Re: 550 interior lights


I'm going to make my first bet on the switch. Usually, this is a plunger unit on the doorframe along the line with the hinges. It is either stuck or burned out. Usually, you can dig the switch out with a small screwdriver. If the switch has only two wires going to it, you can test by shorting out the two wires to each other. This can be done with a paper clip and then taping it up. Since there is power running through these lines, it is suggested that you unplug your unit before attempting any of this. Your fridge should be unplugged for at least 5 minutes before re-connecting. If more than two wires are involved, you can still connect them all together. Sometimes, the fan is shut by a switch when the door is opened. That would be the connection for another wire. If this is the case, carefully note which wires go where before you begin.

Is the power supply cord unplugged?

Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

Is a light bulb loose in the socket?
Turn the refrigerator or freezer control to OFF. Disconnect the refrigerator from the electrical supply. Gently remove the bulb and reinsert. Then reconnect the refrigerator to the electrical supply and reset the control.

It worked for me and i did not unplug it as it was a bukit in..i would have turned the fuse off at the box
good uck

Is a light bulb burned out?
Replace with an appliance bulb of the same wattage, size, and shape. See the “Changing the Light Bulbs” section in your

Beeping & not cooling

Hi Hope, usually when the door(s) have been opened for longer than 10 minutes, an audio alarm sounds and the interior lights shut OFF. This protects the liner from melting due to the heat produced by the light bulbs. The alarm will sound every two minutes until the doors are closed. Once the doors are closed, the alarm is reset.

The refrigerator will also beep on some models to inform the user that the door has been left open and the cool air is escaping.

If the alarm keeps on going off after the doors have been closed and unit has been reset, I recommend contacting a professional technician so they can diagnose and repair your refrigerator.

Interior lights not working on Samsung Refrigeration.

My samsung rf265ab did the same thing after I was cleaning it and the door was open for an extended time. I noticed the the light bulbs looked good and also notice 2 tiny black buttons between the light bulbs. They were slightly extended. I pushed both in and when I opened the fridge again the lights were working. Don't know if I fixed it or just a coincidence.

Sub-zero 550 series

I had this problem in the fridge portion last year and replaced the switch at the top of the door. Problem solved. There should be two switches: one for the lights and one to turn off the compressor when the door is open. I don't remember which one was which. Try the link below for the part, but double check to make sure it's the right one. They have an 800 number to call as well. Good luck
