How to stop the flashing (strobing) lights inside both the fridge and freezer?

Both fridge and freezer seem to work fine, but both internal LED lights flash like a strobe light when opening either door. Have powered off and reset filter, neither worked.

    We are having the same issue but not sure how to fix it. Doesn't seem like it would be the light or the switch since both the fridge and freezer do it in at the exact same time.

I had the same problem but instead of throwing a couple hundred dollars away I decided to let my lights stay on all the time inside the fridge. All I did was pop the filter switch out so it wouldn't trigger when the door was closed. No more flickering and the hole doesn't irritate me like the rave party inside my fridge did????

    This worked for me too. The only difference in what I did was I left the switch in place, and using some male connectors and a small piece of 16 gauge wire, I jumped past the switch closing the circuit and letting the lights stay on 24/7.

    How does switch come out? I can not find anything on internet, they obviously don't want you to know.

    This is a common problem. Look on the back of the circuit board for R15. This resistor burns out. I removed it and soldered in a 1/4 watt 120 ohm resistor and it works fine now. You have to use a very small soldering tip to avoid burning the pad off the board. Bend your resistor leads down on the end so that the resistor lays flat against the board before soldering to avoid breaking the solder joint after the repair.

That is a sign that the led driver is failing in the unit and needs to be replaced what i would do is locate the led power wires and mount an external driver to operate them,to find the drive voltage connect a verable dc power supply and then wind the voltage up 0 to 30 volts

SOURCE: Inside LED and light on fridge do not work.

First check your light bulb to see if it's good, if it is replace the door sw( it's the switch the door hits when closing ), It can be a pain to remove but that's the only parts that make up the light circut hope this helps

your refrig has a bad electronic control heres the part #W10135090 the noise your hearing is an internal relay on the board buzzing trying to turn the lights on. i found the part at sears.com and it was ony about 80 bucks it is a plug and play part so you should be able to replace it yourself. the board is located in the white box next to the compressor in the back of your refrig. thanks peyton

your  problem on this is the main control in the compressor compartment. unplug your refrig then remove this control unplug all connectors and reconnect. this will probably get you working temporarily In almost every case I've seen we ended up replacing the control board. thx peyton

No temp lights on fridge or frezer panel.light on in frezer not in fridge


Try cycling the power. Switch of the fridge at its isolator (or wall socket), leave for 1 minute and switch on again.

Consult your owner manual for guidance.

If still under warranty, contact your dealer.

LG gn253sqa electro cool- temp. control lights in fridge keep flashing and fridge not cooling so good, help?


This has happened to me a couple of times.The problem is that when the fridge door is opened too may times the warm air of summer will block the cold outlets in the fridge with ice.The cold air comes direct from the freezer and the chamber connecting to the fridge clogs up with ice.What one has to do is completely empty the fridge and freezer,leave open both doors so the the ice build-up can melt.Then after about at least 4-5 hours (very important to stick by this time-frame as I tried a less time,but it did not work.),close both the freezer and fridge doors and switch it on.After about 1/2 hour replace your goods in the fridge.The down-side of this is that you will need the kindness of a neighbor or two to use their fridge to store your food whilst this fix is underway..

Just had one of these with the blinking light, fan pulsating and no cooling. The fault is the power supply section in the control module at the back. It is a 2uF 400VAC capacitor going open circuit. make sure you replace this capacitor with something equal or better rated - it is critical

I need to repair my GE profile refrigerator


The first thing you need to determine is if the compressor is coming on. If it isn't then the problem is in the lower section, PCB, start relay or capacitor or compressor. If the compressor does come on, then it sounds like your main board is the problem.

Colorlogic Pool Light flashes like strobe


These swimming pool lights have a power-cycled feature. THis means that you can power down the light and then power back up in 10 seconds and the light pattern will change. It sounds like your light is not cycling properly. Power it down for a full 60 seconds. This will reset the power cycle. Then try turning it on and off in 10 second intervals. If it doesn't reset, you bulb may only be partially functioning and it may need to be replaces.
