There is a switch for the door that is depressed when the door closes. If the switch has failed the light will not work at all. You can unplug the unit and gently pop the switch out usually with a knife blade by depressing the plastic release tab (If you can find them) and then pull it out. Remove the two wires from the switch and mate them as best you can so they make contact and will not ground to anything. Plug in the unit and see if the light works. If the light comes on the switch is bad. Unplug the unit and reinstall the slight switch.

If you still don't have a light there is a possibility of the light socket being defective or a wiring problem in the chassis.

All the lights in the freezer are working. None of the lights in the refrigerator are working. All the bulbs have been changed. Is there a fuse in the refrigerator that would make the lights go out?


In your model , the refrig section light , gets its' power from the control board . When the lights stop working , so will the light for the temp adjustment display . The control board is located behind the refrig , at the bottom , on the left side , inside a white box . It is held on by 2 screws . The part costs around $ 80.00 , and is easily replaceable .

Your refrig light switch does control the freezer fan and the refrig light bulb . Replace the refrig light switch .

Power and no lites in refrig/freezer; beeping


depending on age of unit, the problem may lie in the light bulb,well the door closing anyway, the newer unit s actuall will shut down all interior lights, in the evnet that teh door is left open for more then 2-3 min, so its possible that a light switch is not being activated so the uit thinks the door is open and has shut down the rest of lights, cooling however does continue normally.

Bulb does not light on refrig side. When it happened it popped out the two control knobs. Reset control knobs and replaced bulb but the bulb will not light. After resetting the knobs the refrigerator...


i would alssume(knowing about this refrig) that the leectronic control board hasgone bad. the board is located behind the unit next to the compressor, inside a white housing, if you rmeove this board yull probably see a "burn" on one or more ofthe resistors, this is what controls the lighting in refrig sect, not affecting the cooling but only lights

Refrig shut off and will not restart - light bulbs still working


this refrigerator sounds like a 'frost free' type, and as such can, usually, only be repaired by the manufacturer. local refrigeration engineers cannot get the parts. your fault sounds like a PCB (printed circuit board) has gone, which only the manufacturers have in stock.
