    the light bulb worked fine elsewhere, just not in the freezer. Is th contact switch on the door frame so the light is switched on and off with the opening of the door. if so, i will try to release it. how do i know if the switch is the problem do i replace it or fix also, how do i remove the socket to check for corrosion and is there a way to get the manual if that would help with repair issues thank you for your time and help

Hi there!

Was the bulb blown that you removed?

If not, it may be the contact switch on the door. These usually are just a press fit, sometimes needing a screwdriver in a slot to release it.

Hope this helps you. If it does, Please take a moment to rate your problem fixed with Fixya! Thanks.

    With the new / working bulb in there, Push repeatedly on the door switch. You should be able to hear it clicking each time.



    Sometimes this switch is near the top, others on the hinge side, maybe part of the lamp assembly if this moves.



    Wires may be broken behind this.

    Hi,



    I've had a look at the users manual, and there is nothing beyond replacing light bulb. Which you know already.



    Look for the switch lever on the hinge side. I'm certain the problem relates to this.

Water collecting in bottom of refrigerator side under meat keeper. Wards model no. HMG 2290


Check to see if your ice maker is not leaking water. Otherwise, the problem might be a clogged drain in the freezer. Need to remove the back cover in the freezer to check that the drain is clear. If it is clogged, try removing any blockage that you see and push wire down the drain tube to clear any blockage in the tube.
