Question about Kenmore 60721 Refrigerator

Light Switch Stuck

The light switch for my Kenmore fridge (don't know model #), will not retract when the door closes, thus keeping the door from closing. If the switch is taped down / off, the door functions properly. Seems like it should be easy to fix, but I can't figure out how. Please help.

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.

Fridge and freezer stopped working but fridge light still on should the orange switch by the light be on or off don't know if that is the defrost button


Sounds like a motherboard or defrost control board. Can you tell me the model number found inside the fresh food compartment or around fresh food section door frame, Without the model number it is hard to guess what the switch is that you are asking about, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have this Kenmore elite 795.77563600 refr that has a strange problem. The Lite bulbs in the refrigerator section, when the doors or door is opened...these lights get real hot...and I mean real HOT..!...


Hello,

That sounds as if the light switch is stuck open so even when the door is closed the lights aren't going off.The ligth switch is in the top hinge cover avove the door and i suspect it should be replaced.

The part number for that light switch is 6600JB3007B that refrigerator is built by LG for sears and thier are only a few select places to purchase the switch from. The only 2 places i know of are of course Sears since they will always sell replacement parts from their Kenmore name brand and a online parts site... repairclinic.com

I have a Kenmore 500 series dryer. The dryer just stopped working but the light stays on when the door is closed.


the door switch is broke.when you push on the paddle of the door switch the lite should go out,if you don't see the paddle it most likely broke off,you need to send the full model number next time,it will start with 110.or similar.the door switch is a safety so the machine won't run until the door is closed,if the switch is broke no power will go to start the dryer

My dome light does not go off when the doors are closed or when the engine is turned off. Can't find the on/off switch. Please advise


There are what they call "pin" switches in the door frame that when pressed by the closing of the door will unground the circuit cutting off the light...either they are stuck and won't shutoff..or the wire has come off inside and is grounding out..thus keeping the light on....another possibility is that the wire(s) may be pinched somewhere and it is being grounded out

The alarm beeper keeps beeping even though the doors are closed. The fridge has been sitting for about a year.


hi,

you can check a limit switch at its door. it is located usually at the door area inside.
maybe it is not working already or get stuck that is why it doesn't sense that the door is closed.

most of the time it is getting stuck and you can fix it by just pulling it out or other ways to do it.

hope that solves your problem.

Don't forget to rate me. Thanks...

What is the light switch button for in the fridge section? why does the light stay on in the fridge with the door closed when the switch inside is on ?


The switch is curved so when you close the door the light will also close.How do you know if the light is on when the door closes?Try pushing on the switch and you will see that the light will close.If that is what you are asking.If you push on the switch and the light stays on then you have a faulty switch. hope this helped:)

Marvel Cooler/Fridge Light Not Working


It sounds like the bulb is not getting power. There is a door switch that turns it off when the door closes...this may be stuck. There is usually an optional (depending on age) ON/OFF switch that overrides the light to be on full time. If the light will also not turn on with that switch then there must be a disconnected or broken wire either going to the light switches or going to the light socket from the switches. I hope this helps.

Need help with OLD dryer


IF YOU MEAN THAT THE DRYER STARTS BACK UP WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR, THE PUSH TO START SWITCH IS SHORTED. CHECK TO SEE IF THE PUSH TO START BUTTON IS STUCK PRESSED IN AND NOT SPRINGING BACK OUT.
IF IT IS STUCK, TRY WD-40 TO LOOSTEN IT. OTHERWISE, REPLACE THE SWITCH.

IF THE DRYER KEEPS RUNNING WHEN YOU "OPEN" THE DOOR, THE DOOR SWITCH IS SHORTED. REPLACE THE DOOR SWITCH.
