This can be due to one of two things, either the door is not hitting the light switch when it closes or the light switch is bad.

Locate the switch, it is usually on the top of the cabinet inside the refrigerator, push the switch, if the light does not go out then the switch is bad, if the light goes out the door needs adjusted so it will hit the switch when it closes. Typically this can be done by loosening the hinges and holding the door in place while someone tightens the hinges back up.

How do I replace the lights in my freezer


Turn off the power to the refrigerator/freezer by flipping the appropriate switch in your breaker panel. Alternatively, unplug the refrigerator from the wall outlet.
2
Open the freezer door. Remove any items from the shelf directly under the light shield, then remove the shelf.
3
Press down on the top, front edge of the light shield until the locking tabs slip out of the slots. Swivel the light shield downward slightly to release it. Pull the shield out of the freezer compartment and set it aside.
4
Turn the light bulb counterclockwise to remove it. Insert the GE replacement bulb into the light socket and twist it clockwise.
5
Reattach the light shield by sliding it into place. Gently push the tabs into the original slots.
6
Insert the shelf into the freezer and reload it with the frozen food removed earlier.
7
Close the freezer door. Restore power to the refrigerator by flipping on the breaker or plugging it into the wall outlet.

Keeps sounding an alarm on refrigerator side and will not cool


Hello Friend, this is Z. Thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Did your refrigerator previously experience a power loss? If the temperature of food rises to an unsafe level, the buzzer will sound and the red light, if equipped, will also glow. First, deactivate the alarm to your refrigerator by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. It is good to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on your refrigerator. After deactivating the alarm and your refrigerator has run approximately four hours, the red light/alarm should go off on its own. If the red light/alarm continues to stay on, your refrigerator may possibly have a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or a wiring harness. If this is the case, I would recommend connecting with an experienced technician to determine the underlying cause. Best regards!

The lights stopped working in the refrigerator. I thought both bulbs had blown and replaced them. Still no lights. Is there a fuse to replace? Not sure what's going on.


Check lights connection with thermostat for correct connection. if there is a short or arching then you will keep replacing these bulbs.
