This can be due to one of two things, either the door is not hitting the light switch when it closes or the light switch is bad.

Locate the switch, it is usually on the top of the cabinet inside the refrigerator, push the switch, if the light does not go out then the switch is bad, if the light goes out the door needs adjusted so it will hit the switch when it closes. Typically this can be done by loosening the hinges and holding the door in place while someone tightens the hinges back up.

The light in my freezer stays on when the door is closed.


I am curious how you know it is on unless you get inside. Some have magnet switches that will not cycle until the gasket seals.

Why is my upright igloo freezer not staying close


The door sometimes warps and need to be lightly twisted back to where all four corners make contact and seal.
Your unit may need to be tilt back a bit so the door wants to close y itself, the front foot pegs are adjustable and can be turned to make the front higher or lower than the back side of the cooler, gravity closes the door when the unit is leaning back.

Walk in freezer solenoid not opening


Many Kenmore side-by-side refrigerators have an ice and water dispenser installed on the outside of the freezer door. The ice dispenser has a flap that opens to allow ice to be released, and closes after dispensing to keep the cold air inside of the freezer. The dispenser flap is opened and closed by a solenoid, that when energized pulls the plunger attached to the flap, opening the door. If the flap stops opening and closing, it is likely due to a faulty solenoid.

Samsung side by side refregerator door left open for some time, the door warning chime does not come on


Check the switch just inside the door. If it's not chiming, it may not be switching the fan either.

I suspect a bad fan motor, door switch, or not defrosting.The suction when door closes is caused by the low temperature created when working properly.
