Hotpoint quadrio fridge bulb not working


Hello Donna;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Ok, lets fix the problem:

1.) The light bulb is a special bulb designed to operated in cold temperatures. Some food markets carry them. They cost $10.00-$12.00 each. A normal household bulb will fail.

2.) Assuming you have the correct light bulb. With the refrigerator door open, is the light on? Push the light switch, does the light go off? Light switches either have a small whit plunger or a curved actuator.

3.) Ok, before we assume a bad switch. Unplug the refrigerator. Remove the light bulb. With a flat head screw driver, lift the copper contact in the bulb socket just a little bit, to make sure the copper contact is not depressed and not making contact with the bulb. Put the bulb back in, plug your refrigerator back in. Does the bulb light?

4.) Now we have narrowed the problem down to the light switch. The light switch is normally mounted on the inside wall. It may also be part of the top door hinge assembly (Push pin). If it is in a bottom freezer it is located on the inside top liner in the middle. These switched have pop in retaining clips. With a small flat head screw drive or a peeling knife gradually pry the switch out. You will see either two or three connectors. Remove the connectors noting how the wire leads are attached, The wire leads are short. Be carful not to let they fall down into the liner wall. Lets check the switch, if you have a multi-meter, set your meter to the lowest Ohms. With one meter lead on one switch contact and the other meter lead on the other switch contact, you should get a reading of '0' Ohms. Anything else then the switch is bad.
Oh, you do not have a multi-meter, rest assured if you check the above you have a contact switch problem. Get the model number of your unit. Usually located on the fresh food section wall. Call you local appliance parts supplier and get a new switch.

If you have a push pin switch in the top door hinge, there are either 1 or 2 screws to be removed to remove the hinge cover access the switch.

Samsung has magnetic contact switches. In the door gasket, as with all door gaskets there is a flexible magnet strip. This strip makes contact at the top of the refrigerator front frame. In this case the magnet door gasket strip may be broken and had slipped out of position. In the case you must replace the door gasket. You can physically feel this magnet strip.

Hi, My Bosch built in microwave won't start when I close the door unless I slam it. I suspect the switch. Think so? Can I get at ithe switch to replace without removing the whole unit from the


You will need to remove microwave to access casing, remove casing and check door micro-switch. The switch activator will need adjusting to enable door interlock to activate.

Replace door switch


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Before you change you door light switch. Lets check it out. First, if you have changed the light bulb, did you use a refrigeration light bulb. These bulbs sometimes are available in your local food market. If you used a household light bulb it eventually will fail. The household bulb is not designed for cold temperatures.

All appliances require specific light bulbs designed to the application such as, refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, clothes washers and dryers. Of course they are more expensive $8.00-$10.00.

Ok, lets assume you have the correct appliance light bulb in your refrigerator. With the door open push on the door light switch. If the light comes on your door switch.

All door switches are basically the same they are plastic two contacts, except for one that is a 3 contact switch. The third contact controls the ice dispenser. This switch is on the left side of the freezer wall (Liner).

Ok, lets change a door light switch. Unplug your refrigerator. With a small flat head screw driver (or butter knife) wedge behind the plastic switch frame. Pop it out. Be careful, do not pull it out too far. You will see the two connectors. It may be difficult to remove the connector, so wedge them with a flat head screw driver (Or butter knife). Do not pull on the wires, just the metal connector.

Ok, with your particular model the contact switch is on the top of your unit. There are two screws holding the hinge cover plate. These screws are either Phillips head or hex head. Either 1/4" or 5/16" hex head. Remove the hinge top cover. You have one on each side. There is a connector. With a small screw driver, wedge into the connector to release it. The rest is yours.

The interior lights wont turn off. they melted the old light bracket so i replaced it and the lights still wont go out


It sounds like you have a switch that isn't closing when the door shuts. I'm not overly familiar with the LG's, but looking at the Sears Parts Direct site, it looks like the door switches are in the hinge covers on top of the unit. There should be two of them, one for each door. But, only one has to not be working to keep the light on. The first thing I would check is to make sure the hinge cover isn't loose or out of position. The switch should close when the door closes. If the hinge cover moves, then the switch won't close. If everything is tight and aligned, then one of the switches is bad. That can be checked with a volt meter that does continuity checks. Unplug the unit before checking because those wires should be hot at all times. If you don't have a meter and want to do trial and error, just buy one switch since they both are the same. Here is the parts diagram showing the switch locations and part numbers:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/LG-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-LFX25960ST/3204/0161000/K0810255/00001
The switch is 402A on the diagram, located on top of the box. If you click on the parts diagram, you can enlarge it to get a closer look.
The switch part number is 6600JB3007E
Hope this helps

I have the same problem on a 1999 Lincoln Continental door ajar light is on and the interior light is on but doors are close where is the switch at ? if inside the door how do I take the panel off.


The door switches are usually on the inside of the door jam on the lower corner opposite the hinge. They are covered in rubber and have a tendency to stick. Sometimes spraying them liberally with a spray lubricant such as WD 40 and manually working the switch 10-20x will get a stuck switch to function again.

How do you change out door switch that controls inside lights on a viking frig DDBB363Rss


If the unit doesn't have an exposed door switch(on the control panel), than the switch is on top of the door hinge and if that's the case contact your distributor because the unit might fall under a hinge recall which will also fix the door switch.

Driver door ajar,lights on doors stay on. Whats wrong?


This is a common problem and is caused by the door switch plunger sticking (due to dirt, other elements or rust). This can often be corrected by performing the following:

1. Thoroughly spray the door switches (on each door) with:
  • Cleaning spray - clear the sludge out of the mechanism - electronic contact cleaner, carb, brake, etc
  • Air, canned or even better, from a compressor
  • Spray lubricant - a dry lube (best), silicone spray, WD-40 or similar
2. Open and close each door several times to work the lube into the mechanism. This is usually sufficient to clean the electrical and plunger mechanism inside the door switch.

If this doesn't work, you could remove the door panel and do the spray treatment from the inside also.

Hope helps (remember rated and comment this).

Spray lubricant in the driver's and passenger door latches. One of the switches in the latch are sticking. Open and close the door several times to free up the switch.

3 Step Cleaning & LubeThis is a common problem and is caused by the door switch plunger sticking (due to dirt, other elements or rust). This can often be corrected by performing the following:
1. Thoroughly spray the door switches (on each door) with:

  • Cleaning spray - clear the sludge out of the mechanism - electronic contact cleaner, carb, brake, etc

  • Air, canned or even better, from a compressor

This is usually sufficient to clean the electrical & plunger mechanism inside the door switch.
If this doesn't work, you could remove the door panel and do the spray treatment from the inside also.

This approach works for most, but the switch may have to come out for repair (see Windstar "Related Question" below), or replacement.
