Refrigerator light not working
Refrigerator lighting is a vital part of the appliance because it allows you to see the insides and contents. If the light is flickering or not working, it's important to check a few things, including the switch, sockets, and the light bulb itself. A faulty light is a minor issue and can be resolved without technical assistance. However, if the simple troubleshooting tips mentioned in the article don’t help, it’s best to call in a qualified refrigerator repair technician.
We recommend checking:
1 No power In most cases, the refrigerator lighting does not work due to a lack of power. You can start by making sure the plug is properly connected to the power source. Sometimes the plug is pulled out of the socket, which cuts off the power supply to the refrigerator. If this causes a problem, simply reconnect the plug to the power supply and the problem will be solved.
If the fuse is blown, it may interfere with the operation of the lamp in the refrigerator. Check the circuit breaker or fuse box that controls power to the refrigerator. If the fuse is damaged or blown, replace it with a new one. If the fuse is good, use a voltmeter to check the power supply to the circuit.
If the fuse is not blown and the refrigerator is connected correctly, you need to check the condition of the electrical cord.
2 Bulb If the bulb or bulb is broken or damaged, this can be checked visually. If you notice a broken filament in the bulb, replace it. If there are no visible signs of damage, you can use a multimeter to check its integrity.
If you are considering purchasing a new refrigerator repair light bulb, make sure it matches the light bulb used in the refrigerator.
3 sockets. If there is a power source for the flashlight and the lamp is working, you should inspect the cartridge. Check for signs of damaged terminals that could prevent proper connection of power to the lamp or bulb. Because the outlet is a live circuit, you must turn off the power supply before inspecting the outlet.
4 Door light switch. The interior lighting of the refrigerator is controlled by a switch that is activated when the door is opened and closed. If there is a problem with the switch, the light may not turn on when you open the refrigerator. The location of the switch depends on the make and model of the refrigerator. The switch is usually located at the top of the doorway. Because the switch is mounted on a plastic insert, remove the switch carefully so as not to damage the finish. This is a closed type spring loaded switch, which means there is no continuity when the light switch is pressed.
