Hi,

There are a couple of things to try.

Take a hair dryer and warm up the socket that the light goes into. This will allow you to screw it in tighter,

If this does not work then the door switch may be bad, send me the model and serial number from the tag inside the refrigerator and I can look up the part for you.

    Okay, thank you for trying that.

    Looking at the wiring diagram the only thing left would be the door switch part number 66987-1

    It is right up front on top as you open the door, with the refrigerator unplugged from the wall you can take a screwdriver and pry one side down then the other to release.


  • Philip May 08, 2010

    Hi,

    The switch is not screwed into the hole in the console. It has little tabs on either side that keep it in place. If you cant get behind the switch to press on the tabs then a flat screwdriver pry the switch out is the best way. One side at a time.

    Here is a picture of it



  • Philip May 08, 2010

    Have you been able to get the switch out?

Samsung Refregirator RS267LABP is 4 years old. Shows -4 on Freezer and 38 on Fridge but not cooling. All items inside are getting spoiled


38 on Fridge is not enough to cool refrigerator. Please check there is fan, (working ) to spread the cooling to refrigerator compartment. Switch off and restart, if any chock in system could release the gas circulation. If problem still, release gas and flush out system, vacuum and do gas charging. Thanks.
