Fridge light does not go on when door is opened. I replaced the door switch, but that didn't help. Everything else works OK, the temp indicators, door alarm, etc. all work OK. Just all the lights in the fridge section don't come on. Suggestions?
Answer Rob, There are a few more components to check, since the issue is in the fresh food compartment, you've solved some of the problem. There is a TOD device WR50X10035, is located on the back wall of the fresh food compartment,at the base of the light tower. If the TOD has an open circuit, the lights won't illuminate. Two re-settable, 2-amp circuit breakers are located on the front of the transformer housing. Should a circuit breaker trip (open), it will open the transformer circuit it is associated with (freezer compartment or fresh food compartment), disabling that transformer and stopping voltage output to the interior lights. Transformers WR62X10029 Power is supplied to all interior lighting by 2 transformers. One transformer is used for each compartment. The transformers supply low voltage
power to the lights by converting 120 VAC into 12 VAC. The transformers are located in a housing under the center of the refrigerator. The housing is accessible from the front of the refrigerator. To access the transformers, remove the 1/4-in hex head screws (6) that hold the housing in place. Since you've replaced the door switch, you'll need to check these other components to determine the issue.
My ice/water dispenser wil not shut off. This is the second time this has occurred. I believe the repairman replaced part WR55X10560 the last time. Is this the problem.
Answer Hello Russell,
This problem can be in the dispense area or in the main control. I was going to look at the configuration but could not without a model number. I would open the dispense area and if there is a micro switch that is activated by the dispense paddle, check for it being sticky. This occurs from dispensing ice into a glass of sticky drink such as tea, kool aid, coke, etc. The problem is caused by the splash getting into the switches. If you would like more specifics, please re-post with your model number from the I.D. tag on the unit.
