Question about Amana DRT1802B Top Freezer Refrigerator
I have an Amana refridgerator with a top freezer that's a little more than 10 years old. It's old enough for Amana to not have any information in their data base when I called! Anyway, the freezer light suddenly went out. Bulb is fine, socket is fine, the switch on the door is fine, and the freezer is still cooling fine - I checked all of the power points with a meter. When I checked to see if power was coming to the door switch, I got bubkis on my meter. Does anyone have any suggestions for "non-invasive" things to check? Chances are that if it's a wiring issue that I can't deal with, it makes no sense to pay to have it fixed because it would cost more than what the unit is worth!! If that's the case, I can live without the light :-)
Door switches normally use the neutral so having nothing there may not be unusual. You should be able to check the resistance on the door switch (with the power off***). As long as you have zero resistance through the switch (when fully extended, ie. door open), it will be OK. I would definitely buy another bulb first as wiring issues are unusual, these things are normally well built. Good attitude over living without a light because it sounds like you have checked most things, however I know I couldnt. Hope this helps.
