Re: Lights do not turn on

Have you tried changing them. They take an appliance bulb. If you have it may be the door switch. But first try the bulbs.

Why won't the lights in my refrigerator turn on?

There could be multiple reasons for the light to not turn on. They could be simply burnt out. They could be turned off as a default. There could also be a short in the circuitry. Which lights are not turning on?

Inside lights of KitchenAid KSF26C4XYY not illuminate

I bet your fridge was put into Sabbath Mode.

Sabbath Mode is designed for those whose religious observances
require turning off the lights and dispensers.
In Sabbath Mode, the temperature set points remain unchanged,
but the interior and dispenser lights turn off, all sounds and alarms
are disabled, the dispenser display screen backlight turns off, and
the dispenser levers are disabled

To turn on Sabbath Mode, press and hold LIGHT and
OPTIONS at the same time for 3 seconds. When the feature
turns on, "Sabbath Mode" will appear on the dispenser
To turn off Sabbath Mode, press and hold LIGHT and
OPTIONS at the same time for 3 seconds again.

Where is the automatically dispenser light located on the refrigerator

Go to page 5 of your user manual HERE
Style 1: The dispenser light can be turned on by pressing the ON


Style 2: When you use the dispenser, the lever will automatically

turn the light on. If you want the light to be on continuously, you

may choose either ON or NIGHT LIGHT.

ON: Press the LIGHT button to turn the dispenser light on.

NIGHT LIGHT: Press the LIGHT button a second time to select

the Night Light. The dispenser light will automatically adjust to

become brighter as the room brightens, dimmer as the room


OFF: Press the LIGHT button a third time to turn the dispenser

light off.

The dispenser lights are LEDs which should not need to be

changed. If it appears that your dispenser lights are not working,

check to be sure that the light sensor is not blocked (in Night Light
mode). See "Troubleshooting" for more information.

Interior light not turning on. Temperature not showing up either. Brand new out of the box. Plugged in and it lit up, then turned off. Now won't turn on (light won't turn on) Unit turns on and

Sounds like a poor connection in the control or a faulty control module, I would return it as faulty for a new one. They seal those units up pretty good so we can't fiddle with them. Everyone gets a lemon sometimes.

Freezer temp. 3 green lights flashing.

the flashing lights can be fixed by first turning the fridge off at the mains then turning both dials to economy ( this results in the fridge making a ..beeping sound). finally turning both dials fully in anti-clockwise to the off or zero position ( resulting in the fridge light bulb - going off).
Then lastly turning the dials back to our desired setting....(bulb light comes back on)
Now we only have the center green light on and NO FLASHING.

Outside door light won't turn off

Please post the model number so I can pull up a schematic. Some models have a "night light" mode that may have been activated so check the owners manual, other than that the control board could be bad, providing a slight "leakage" of power to the lamp (depending on the type of lamp control circuit).
