Unplug the frig to remove power. Unscrew the bulb. Check the nub on the bottom of the bulb to make sure it is not flattened. Use needle nose pliers to grab the center tab of the bulb socket and pull outward slightly so bulb will make better connection. Could be a faulty switch or bad connection in the wiring.

I have a samsung side by side fridge freezer model SRS539HW, the alarm keeps beeping every minute to say the doors are open however they are closed. If I manually pust the door closer button it will...


Solved beeping problem.........Samsung SRS539HW . Have one of these and it is 6 years old. I had to replace the bottom hinge on the fridge side(right). Easy job but now constant beeping as if door is open, and light is intermittent. Found that there is considerable wear on the cable through top hinge of door and one of the wires from a magnetic reed switch in door had broken. I discovered this by shorting the two fine wires (white and pink/white) going to internals of fridge.No more beeping due to door opening and light now working correctly. Of course I no longer get a beep for a valid door open to long but cheaper than getting a refridgerator expert in.

Fridge light takes 2.5 sec to come on


Hi!!!

Have you cleaned the switch actuator? It is usually located on the door frame since it is activated by the door. Some times accidental spills will keep the switch from working correctly.

Good Luck

Fridge Frezer


Hi I am the lady with the freezer that keeps icing up at the bottom and then dribbles water from the door when you open the door. Did you say to pull the freezer out and do something at the back of unscrew the little panel that is inside the freezer at the bottom?

Sounds like frosting up. Defrost completely...that can take 2 days. Restart. Also, clean the condenser. Check door gaskets, clean and replace as necessary. Don't keep door open longer than necessary.

FFA60 Hotpoint fridge/freezer Red warning light


if i read the english right, the compressor runs but the freezer fan only runs for a short time. no fan then no cooling. there is a fan stat so that the fan only runs when the evap is down to temp. this may be faulty. also on some hotpoint, the fan switches off when door opened. check door switch operating ok. this may also explain problem with fridge lamp
