Most light switches snap in place. If there is no apparent screw and the switch seems to have an adequate lip all around it, use a putty knife or butter knife push under that lip at one of the shorter sides and gently try to pry it up. It should pop out. the two wires are usually attached by spade connectors that just pull off. Doesn't matter which wire goes on each. Sears should be able to get a new one. But before you go that far be sure the bulb is not burnt out first. You should also take the switch with you to sears or have a friend test the switch to be sure it is truly bad..

Check the parts list at the link below to see if a circuit breaker is present in your fridge, it could have tripped if incoming line problems were unstable:

My kenmore coldspot mode 106.53394300 is freezing items in the fridge


If further adjustments cannot be made to the thermostat, the next step would be to replace the thermostat or if so equipped, the temperature thermistor.

Kenmore sidexside light burned out. replaced bulb, won't light.


There is a plastic switch that works the light in the door jam. Unplugg the fridge before popping this plastic switch out. I would order one first but if your light fixture is in good shape and not burn on the inside and the wires look good it is most likely the door switch. The door switch is just like an on off switch for any light its just spring loaded to turn on when the door opens. good luck

No water or ice from older kenmore side by side


You must pull fridge out the water valve is in the bottom back. Sounds like the valve is stuck open. You can Google your model# to find appliance parts to order new valve.

Light Switch Stuck


This is a replaceable part. A new switch can be ordered from Sears by Model number of your refrigerator and name of the part. If you have your owners manual it may contain a list with part numbers. Some of these switches will pop out to be replaced. Others you may have to remove the breaker strip where it is mounted to remove the switch by compressing the snaps on the side of the switch.

Kenmore refrigerator light does not work


there is a tab in the bottom of the light socket that can get bent so that it wont touch the base of the new bulb. unplug your refrig and use a small screw driver and bend the tab back out a little bit so that it will contact the new bulb...
