Your door switch is faulty.Normally the door swtich is a limit switch and its action is press to OFF, when the door is closed.Otherwise when the switch is released when the door is opened then the lights must come on. Use a good tool to take the switch out, you can use some goos quality switch/electric contact cleaners or even WD40 can be used. The switch must be pressed hard a number of times while you spray into the contact.If there is no result you will need to remove and take the swittch to find the same mounting type- normally On switch.Hope you get thei right. Good day

The light in the fridge side has stopped working bulbs are ok

Might be a stuck switch. Somewhere around the edge of door is a small pressure switch that pops out when door is open and gets pushed back in when door is closed. This can stick or even break.

Whirlpool gold refrgerater light not working ? Eveything else is

Have you checked the bulb? If not, turn off the power before removing the bulb then see if you can make a circuit with the bulb, a battery and a bit of wire. If you can then the bulb's OK. The switch is the next most likely suspect. Replace bulb and turn power back on. Operate switch with door open. Does light now operate? After this it's beyond me. Decide how critical it is to have the light. If critical then call an electrician. Otherwise put up with no light!

Fridge light bulb

Not sure how the light socket only has 6V supply? The bulb for this fridge is a pretty standard 15 Watt/230V SES lamp. If you are sure the current lamp is OK I would suggest the door lamp switch has issues. Try pressing and releasing the door switch manually and check that it functions ok without getting stuck or any sluggish movement. This action in itself may fix the problem.

Light quit working 2 days ago. Tested all leads, no power to fixture from circuit board. Bulbs test OK

The light is controlled by a relay on the circuit board. The problem is there are no schematics available and individual parts are not available.

Main light on will not come on when door is opened/closed

For some reason, the bulbs I tested that worked somehow didn't work correctly when inserted into the door opener. We opened another set of bulbs we purchased and what do you know, the light now works. I don't fully understand as the other bulbs did work just not in the garage door opener.
