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.

SOURCE: Light stays on when door is closed

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.

SOURCE: door sensor is not working, inside light stays on

This may be a simple switch with corroded contacts. Try this:
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.

SOURCE: refrigerator light won't turn off

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.

Kenmore refregerator lights on/burning even doors are closed


If I understand correctly, you have the bottom freezer with the two doors that open into the fresh food section. Also you have to open one of the two doors first in order to get into the fresh food section. If i ma correct. The switch on the door you have to open first to get into the fresh food section is bad. This is why it makes not difference if you hold both in. The switch on the second door does something else. You will need to replace the switch that the first. You can test this switch by, take the switch out. They are tricky to get out. Take a putty knife and slide it under one end of the switch, push in while you are prying outward. It should pop out. There should be three wires going to the switch. One of the wires is hot (110 Volts), one goes to the fan inside the fridge and the other goes to the light. (The switch operates like this. When you close the door, it turns the light off and the fan on. When you open the door, it turns the fan off and the light on.) Once you find out which one is hot, connect one of the others to it. If the fan comes on try connecting the hot to the other wire. The light in the fridge should turn off. If so replace the switch. I hope you can understand the way I tried to explain.

Light stays on when refrigerator door is closed


If you can find the 'Plunger" for the light switch......push on it to see it turns off the light. Once you know that is working you can add a "shim" to the door with a piece of tape. But if the plunger isn't working nothing else you do is going to fix it.

The plunger is usually located somewhere on the fridge on the same side where the door hinges are

Frigidaire is freezing everything


Make sure the light is going off when the door is in the closed position. Find the switch that the door makes contact with when it closes. If the light is not going out the heat from the light being on could cause such a problem.

Light stays on when door is closed


The GE GSL22JFPH refrigerator door gets lower over time. When it gets low enough the light stays on when the door closes. There is a vertical bolt along the hinge line. Push down the hinged plastic "hinge cover" under the door right on the hinge line and you can get a wrench on the bolt to raise the door. I have to do this every 6 months/
