Interior Lighting on True Refrigerator Unit

The inside lights went out in my True Cooler. I replaced the bulbs but this did not correct the problem. Is there a starter to replace? Where is it located?

A starter may be located in the top area inside the cooler. Not all true coolers have starters. Check the connections where the light pins slide into. Also may need new ballast.

    Interior light and temperature light not lighting up. Worked when first plugged in, then shut off.

    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.

    Light bulb replacement what size? cannot find one to fit

    Most appliance take a standard bulb similar to this:

    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.

    Elite trio, 795.755 Refrigerator light stays on, getting hot. Refrigerator space warming up to 45 degrees. Pressing in both door switches gives no clue. Both feel smooth.

    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.

    Dash board doesn't light up

    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.

    The light bulb burnt out. It is located in the center of the fridge between the two doors. I'm not sure how to remove the bulb in order to replace it.

    Unplug the cooler to avoid a shock. Try pulling bulb up and then out from bottom. The bulb should be resting in spring loaded receptacles.

    Flourescant lights flickering

    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.
