    Clarification, the interior light comes on when each door is open. However, the control board panel is off and the unit is obviously not running. So I know there is power; can the control board be reset somehow?

You need to elaborate more. If it's just the light quit working, then check the bulb first, if it's good then use a meter to check if you are getting power to the socket (red lead to middle contact, black one to the metal ring) check with meter on ACV at setting 200 or so and it should read 110-121V. If that's good then keep backtracing until you find the problem.

    The light's usually on a separate circuit than the control circuit, that's what I was trying to get to. Have you checked for fuses on the hot line into the control board? If there's not one on the board itself, then check for a knot in the wire going up to (look like a cylinder) and take two sewing needles, with the unit unplugged stab one on each side of it and check continuity, if you don't get it get a replacement inline one of same value and check it again.

Inside light on fridge/freezer not working.


OK, the digital logic being out reminds me of the possibility the mother board or circuit board has gone out. If you can get the complete model number on inside of fresh food compartment door frame, near bottom of door, I will be able to help you better. While I wait I will try to look up similar models and get better answers for you. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refridge and freezer stopped cooling


it is either the start switch on the side of the compressor or the compressor itself.
the buzzing sound is the start switch trying to start the compressor and the click is the overload on the start switch kicking it out.
the start switch is bad or the compressor is pulling too much amps = bad compressor.

Smell coming from the refrigerator


I would assume you have a bad self defrosting motor. This motor generally is used to cycle heat at certain points to keep the unit from allowing the condansation from freezing inside the refridg. I am assuning the smell is this motor heating up. Should the motor quit, it is normally not a fire hazard but should be taken care of. You'll need to remove the back panel of the refridg and you'll see the minuture motor and probably hear is making noise. Always be sure to unplug the refridg before opening the back panel or any service to prevent shock. Good luck
