Hello charlie, if you have checked the lamp and it comes on then this is what you should do trace the lamp switch in the fridge it is usually a small mechanism around the door which gets depressed as the door swings open. If this is located try ensuring that the door and the switch make proper contact or depress the switch manually. If the bulb comes on then the door should be checked as this means the door does not depress the switchproperly. If it doesnt come on then the switch of the lamp holder is faulty and should be examined by an expert.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

    Most times the switch just needs a little tap and it works right back. just like it was never faulty.

Hi,

The problem is with the main control board.You have to do continuity testing on the board.Check for the wiring connections from and to the board.When the main control board is defective usually this happens.Take it to the service centre to solve this issue.Because if you want to it you have to fully replace the board which costs 250$.If it is small defect in the board they will replace the capacitors or resistors based on which one is defective.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

The ice maker has stopped working , a red light is flashing.


according to the led flash cycle, you can figure this out. if you open the freezer door and the light flashes two times, that is normal. if you close the flapper on the left side of the freezer, the light should remain lit, and that means that the optic system is functioning correctly. there is a diagram behind the vent panel on the bottom front of the fridge.

I have a hotpoint hss22gft that the refrigerator side will not stay cold. freezer side is 10 degrees. any suggestions


if you have an abundance of snow/frost on the back wall of your freezer, you have a defrost problem, heater, thermistor, defrost thermistat, or the main CPU could be the problem. If you have no abundance of frost on back wall of freezer, with freezer door open, "close" the door/light switch. Does your freezer fan run? if not, you have a faulty fan/possibly your main CPU as well. if you fan does run, then the damper door, which opens to let the air from the freezer into the fridge is not opening. close the freezer door, open the fresh food door, "close" the light switch on that side, and place your hand near the vent at the top left side of fresh food side. air flow? if no, bad damper door. if yes, check for any gaps in door seal, tears rips or malformations. if none of the above help, seek technical service

your  problem on this is the main control in the compressor compartment. unplug your refrig then remove this control unplug all connectors and reconnect. this will probably get you working temporarily In almost every case I've seen we ended up replacing the control board. thx peyton

Some precautions before diagnosing the icemaker optics system since there are two different sets of emitter-receiver optics boards and therefore two entirely different procedures for emitter-receiver optics board diagnosis. This could get really tricky especially when the appropriate tech sheet isn’t handily available. To determine which optics diagnostic procedure should be employed, open the freezer door and observe the right side (mullion or partition side) LED status light. If the red LED is NOT flashing two repeating pulses, this usually indicates the older style emitter-receiver optics boards are used and its specific diagnosis procedure should be employed. But then again, this could also mean that the new optics system IS used but the icemaker just happens to be in the harvest mode - OR - the LED (optics receiver) has failed in some bizarre twist of fate. However, keeping the above cautions in mind, we can assume that normally the older emitter-receiver optics system will NOT have its red LED status light flashing each time the freezer door is opened, while the NEW style optics WILL have its red LED status light double pulsing at each door opening.
