If you open the operator console, there should be a wiring diagram located inside for technical assistance.  Make sure you unplug the dryer before servicing.

Now...to get to the door switch.  You will need to perform the following steps:

1.  Remove the operator console.  It is either removed by inserting a putty knife under the each front corner of the console and pushing in to release a retaining clip.  Or, there will be a screw on each side holding it down.

2. Once the console is removed. The top panel must be removed.  If there are three 1/4 inch screws under the console holding it in place, you will need to remove them first before the top will come off.  The top panel will then slide towards you and then lift up.  Some top panels will simply slide forward and come off without removing any screws.  Double check to be sure.

3.  Located along the front of the dryer under the top panel will be a series of wires.  One set will go to a lamp socket and the other set of wires goes to the door switch.  NOTE: Some dryers have a lamp socket in the rear of the unit away from the door opening.  The door switch will have a connector plug.  Take a small screwdriver and gently lift up on each side of the plug and it will pull apart.

4.  On the side of the plug still attached to the door, connect a multimeter across the pins of the plug and take resistance readings while opening and closing the door.  You should see a change in resistance from open to short.  If the resistance does not vary, the switch is bad.  Another method you can try is to jumper the wires on the section of plug that is not connected to the door to see if the unit will operate with the switch by-passed.

Make sure you unplug the dryer before servicing and only energize it if you wish to attempt the by-pass method of testing.  I do not recommend bypassing the door switch as a fix, either.  The dryer will not shut off when you open the door, which means you would have to rotate the timer or unplug the dryer to stop it.

Please post any responses back to this thread instead of making separate postings.   It makes it easier to assist you.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

How do I replace the door light switch?


I appreciate your post, Deborah!

From what you have described you need to replace the door light switch on your Frigidaire freezer. In order to assist you further I would need your model number. You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside wall of your freezer. I look forward to assisting you. -Matt

The interior lights wont turn off. they melted the old light bracket so i replaced it and the lights still wont go out


It sounds like you have a switch that isn't closing when the door shuts. I'm not overly familiar with the LG's, but looking at the Sears Parts Direct site, it looks like the door switches are in the hinge covers on top of the unit. There should be two of them, one for each door. But, only one has to not be working to keep the light on. The first thing I would check is to make sure the hinge cover isn't loose or out of position. The switch should close when the door closes. If the hinge cover moves, then the switch won't close. If everything is tight and aligned, then one of the switches is bad. That can be checked with a volt meter that does continuity checks. Unplug the unit before checking because those wires should be hot at all times. If you don't have a meter and want to do trial and error, just buy one switch since they both are the same. Here is the parts diagram showing the switch locations and part numbers:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/LG-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-LFX25960ST/3204/0161000/K0810255/00001
The switch is 402A on the diagram, located on top of the box. If you click on the parts diagram, you can enlarge it to get a closer look.
The switch part number is 6600JB3007E
Hope this helps

The message "right rear door ajar" comes on and


This is very common, the door ajar switch is no good . the switch is located inside the door and is part of the latch, but it can be replaced spreate, you will not have to replace the latch, on some models you would need to replace the latch inorder to replace switch, on this model i think you can buy the switch form dealer, you will need to remove the door panel and the latch to replace the switch, heres a diagram to help you locate the switch, hope this helps.

I need to disable my alarm on a 1997 bmw 528i.


Now im not sure since the manual says your model has the same alarm system as the 328i and on the 328i you can remove the module to disable by doing the following. you can unplug the control module. It is located under the glove box. Climb under the dash on the passenger side and remove a few screws on the trim panel under the glove box. Theres a black control module with a green connector. There should be a lock tab on the connector. press the lock tab and pull out the connector. The alarm should now be disabled. But if it has the special transponder key this may not work.
But if the only reason you want to disable it is because of the motion sensor setting of the alarm for no reason there is a solution for this. To disable the motion sensor, hit the lock button to arm, then hit lock button again within four seconds to disable motion sensor. Red light on rearview mirror should flash four times, then pause, then start flashing on regular intervals. this is most likely the reason if your having the issue where the alarm goes off every 20 minutes.
If you want to completely remove it below is a wiring diagram taken from the manual for you alarm system.

Machine does not turn on


Hi, UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

95 jeep grand cherokee laredo 5.4 replaced alternator and battery and cable still have dead battery every morning Please help


the best way to look at this problem is with a12 volt test light then remove the ground cable from the battery turn every thing off inside the car close all doors and remove keys then connect testlight to battery cable and touch the test light point probe to the negitive battery post if test light lights up for more than three seconds and stays on you have draw on the system. dont panic it maybe just a glove box light or door switch. if suspect a circuit simply un hook it retest again .if you open a door that will make light test come on recheck all doors closed. if you still have test light on locate fuse box and remove one fuse at a time until test goes out while holding door switch in.when locate circut use wiring diagram to assist from ther. if the light does not light up check altenator output volt meter shoud be 13.2 -15.5 volts when running.
