Question about Candy CPCA270FFK Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

2 Answers

INSIDE LIGHT I have replaced the bulb inside the fridge, but it still doesn't light. Neither of the green lights at the front of the door have lit..not even the yellow warning light. The unit seems to be operating normally otherwise, although I may be imagining that the motor is running more than usual? Hope you may be able to advise a solution. Thank you, GED

I'd say the door switch is bad. Jiggle it. Spray some WD40 into it. But ultimately, remove it and test it for continuity. If there is no continuity in the door-open position, replace it.

But be careful. Some refrigerators have a second door switch with opposite function. It turns the fan OFF when the door is opened.

Liebherr bulb switch


Generally at the top on the door inside the fridge there will be a little door switch as we call it. When pushed in it should open the contacts in the switch and kill the power to the bulb. If the bulb is not turning off when the switch is pressed then I would presume the contacts have been fused shut and if you would like the light to turn off you may want to replace the switch, or pull out the light bulb andhave no light. Good luck

Kenmore sidexside light burned out. replaced bulb, won't light.


There is a plastic switch that works the light in the door jam. Unplugg the fridge before popping this plastic switch out. I would order one first but if your light fixture is in good shape and not burn on the inside and the wires look good it is most likely the door switch. The door switch is just like an on off switch for any light its just spring loaded to turn on when the door opens. good luck

How to get to stop light in back window of 95 lincoln cont. Bulb is burnt out. do we change from trunk side or inside of car? also have a problem with interior lights staying on for a long time after car...


First, the stop light bulb is accessible from inside the car. The cover can be removed by pressing down on the center of the unit and pull back toward the front of the car. Once off, you will have access to the bulb itself

You have a sticky door switch. Apart from replacement, best course of action is to spray the switch (all throughout the inside of the door/lock) with WD-40. Since you're unsure which switch is sticking, repeat this procedure on all doors. Once thoroughly lubricated, open and close the doors several times. This should fix your sticky switch problem.. Best of luck.

Light inside does not work, even after putting in a new bulb. Could it be a bad door switch. If so, can I replace it. How do I replace it?


It probably is a bad switch, in most firdge the switch is installe in a pop-lock construction. maybe the spring inside the switch is busted. Also please check the bulb you bought. it should be rated for refrigerators or else it wont work.

Smeg Fridge light


What you need to locate is the door switch mechanism for the fridge. These are normally located towards the top of the door and protrude so that when the door closes the switch is pushed in. To find out if you have a problem with the switch just press it when the door is open and the light should go off. The switch itself can appear in various forms either as a protruding rod or a curved plate which pushes upwards against the door side when it closes. If I could draw in this section it could be better explained. But if you look around the inside of the fridge on the side away from the door hinge then you should find something you can push. Sorry to be this vague. If you do need a replacement switch they are normally quite simple to change depending on where they are located, most are two screws, or just a push in type. Hope this has been of some help.

Replacing light bulb on dryer


Light is located just above the door on the inside of the drum. It has a clear plastic lens on it. The lens has a hinge on the top and a retention feature on the bottom. You can see all of this with a mirror. Simply push the button up and the lens will swing up. You can then access the light bulb.
