Question about Samsung RF265ABBP (25.8 cu. ft.) Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
While I was cleaning out the refrigerator I heard a pop and now neither of the lights at the top will turn on. I confirmed the bulbs are working in another appliance. the freezer light is still functional and there are no error codes on the panel
Maybe those light bulbs are not for a refrigerator appliance. Go to the local Home Depot and ask for refrigerator light blubs.

Either the door switch or the light socket is bad. Disconnect the refrigerator and pull the switch out and test it with an ohmmeter for continuity.

Most refrigerators have the evaporator in the freezer and use air flow to cool down the refrigerator compartment. Can you tell if the defrost cycle is working, IS there ice on the evaporator. Can you defrost it. Try taking it off the power freeze cycle and also power cool cycle. When you cleaned underneath did you find a pan that had water in it. sometimes the drain clogs up and the condensate just sits in the freezer and refreezes the water, this acts like a blanket and slows down the cooling in the refrigerator. see if you can look at see if the drain is clogged, this may be your problem. You can get back to me and i will see if i can help you. thank you. and a rating would be helpful. thank you. wally

The lights will go off after a certain time period; that is built into the control. But if the lights never worked even after the door has been closed for a time, it is probably the light switch, which is in the "throat moulding" or "breaker strip", whatever you want to call it. That it the plastic strip surrounding the door when in the closed position. That should be under warranty.

Please check the door switch and the bulb holders, in some cases it can be due to loose connection or a faulty switch on the door, The failure of the bulb is another issue but the main subject is how you can check and remove the bulb.
