Light on the fridge side quit working, it was making a humming sound, (like a short). The digital temp lights were not working also, removed the bulb and the digital temp lights came back on. Replaced the bulb with a new one but the light is still not working & when the bulb is screwed completly in, the digital temp lights go off but not making the humming sound any more.

Dennis A for Model Number GS5SHAXNL00

ANSWER Dennis, You will need to carefully remove the light bulb sockets from the liner, and install the bulbs properly, and check for 120 VAC across the yellow and white wires on the socket, wirth the door open. If the voltage is low or non existant, you will need to access the main control board W10135090 (located in the compressor compartment) and check for 120 VAC on connector P2 pin 9 to chassis ground, and P2 pin 3 to ground for 120 VAC, no or low voltage would indicate a defect in the main control board.
