take the bulb out and check it with a meter or put it in a lamp to see if it's good,if it is good then you either didn't screw it in correctly or the light switch is bad and needs to be replaced,i've gone in and found the bulb not in correctly,you can turn it in and cross tread it.look where the door closes in,you'll find a switch that the coor hits to shut off the light when it closes,try pushing the switch in and out to see if the bulb lights,if so change out the switch.
My experience is that most stores with a lighting section will stock replacement bulbs for ovens and refrigerators. The best thing to do is to removed the burnt out bulb and take it along with your to the store to make sure you match the replacement.
According to your manual your interior light is a 40 watt appliance bulb.
Some of these Kenmore Elite refrigerators built by LG have a design defect that has been the subject of a class action settlement. The interior lights stay on even if the doors are shut, turning the refrigerator interior into a version of the child's Easy Bake oven toy. There are many cases where plastic interior parts of the refrigerator got so hot they melted. I replaced the 60W incandescent bulbs with 7 Watt LED bulbs just in case. The LED bulbs will not get hot enough to harm anything even if left on indefinitely. This model also has problems with the wires inside the door (water dispenser side) The wires break inside the door and are not replaceable. I ran new wires through the interior and bypassed the broken wires to avoid buying a whole new door.
remove dash to the bulb components (the layer of dash with only bulbs[looks complicated]) turn dash lights on and identify wich bulbs are not working, replace them with the correct bulbs. if this is unsuccesfull find the connection from the bulbs to the wire and also the connection from the wire to switch. ensure the components inside the connextions are clean(pull apart and check for rust, dust, dirt ect..) you can buy connection cleaner from most car orrientated shops.
is there a ballast or a starter? if there is a starter (little silver metal or white plastic can), then replace the transformer inside the lamp housing. if there is a ballast (long black rectangle with many wires) and you replaced that and the lamp, then there must be a power drain in the unit somewhere.
