My lightbulb in my fridge won't go on

Check the tab in the center of he bulb socket. Unplug the frig first and gently pull it up a little. You should be using a 40 watt appliance bulb not a 60. If the tab is not the problem you may need a new switch.

Why do my lightbulbs keep blowing


Hi there and welcome to fixya,

There are a lot of attributes to that.. it could be unregulated voltage or a poor bulb quality. I recommend buying a higher quality bulb or better, replace it with the same type (fridge bulb).. some bulbs can't handle sudden temperature change inside the fridge that's why.

Hope this helps

I have a Hygena Built in fridge freezer and the freezer is defrosting and the fridge is not coming


hi try this On the refrigerator door jamb, locate a small push-button switch. This component operates the light inside the refrigerator. If the switch is malfunctioning, the light in the unit may stay on, and the heat from the lightbulb can cause cooling trouble in the box.
Step 1: Check the bulb to see if it is burned out. If not, depress the push button on the door switch.
Step 2: If the light stays on, clean the switch with a cloth. Then remove the switch from the jamb. Remove retaining screws hidden by a plastic trim piece, pry the switch out of the jamb with a screwdriver, or pry off the jamb trim to expose the switch. Then test the switch with a VOM set to the RX1 scale 

Step 3: Clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal of the switch and press the push button. The meter should read zero. If the needle on the scale moves above zero, replace the switch with a new one of the same type.

Step 4: Connect the new switch the same way the old one was connected.

Refrigerator (Whirlpool) increase in electricity usage


very doubtfull fridge fault would double elec consumption. look at rating plate and see how many watts then equate this to light bulbs. average light bulb is 60-100 watts (uk). does circuit breaker you turned off only control the fridge?
