Question about LG LRFD22850 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator French Door
THIS PROBLEM IS A SERIOUS FIRE HAZARD!!! And, apparently, it's a common issue -- one we had as well. Remove the bulbs immediately and call LG, stressing the fact that it is getting hot in there.
For us, they sent out a replacement circuit board and cover for the lights because the original one had MELTED.

This is an old post, however, the problem is not in the door switch. If you check the wiring diagram the switch goes back to the board to a relay. The relay is sticking. The solution is changing the board.

This may be a simple switch with corroded contacts.
Locate the button that controls the light and depress it fully, then let it fly out, snapping it several times to see if it will clean itself up.
If not, it will have to be replaced and this with varying degrees of difficulty depending on how it is mounted.
Since it is a Sears brand appliance, go to the Sears parts department on line and enter your model number. Nearly all Sears/Kenmore appliances will be listed (among with many other brands) and there will be an exploded line drawing of the device that will help you locate what must be removed for this replacement. You can also order that part while you are there if you decide to replace it yourself.

Either the doors are not closing properly, or the door-light switch is bad. Though I would not be at all surprised that it is a more complicated issue such as a motherboard since it is an LG (low grade) refrigerator.
