What appliance in your home would you say works the hardest? Our guess would be your refrigerator. You need your refrigerator to keep your food and drinks cold so they will be ready when you are. The light in your refrigerator is an essential part of your appliance because it will allow you to see everything in your refrigerator. If your refrigerator’s light is not working or if it is only flickering, you will need to check various parts of your refrigerator, including the bulb and the sockets.
If your refrigerator’s light is not working, you should not shake your head in frustration. There are some troubleshooting tips you can follow, but if your troubleshooting efforts do not work, we suggest that you call a professional to receive the technical help you need.
This refrigerator uses LED light bulbs which are tougher to check using a multimeter. Most LEDs will simply stop lighting when they experience a failure. These lights last a lot longer than your traditional refrigerator light bulb. Typically only one will fail at a time, otherwise, there may be a different component causing the lights to not work.
Removing an LED light
Using a small flat bladed screwdriver or putty knife, gently pry the plastic casing and LED assembly from the interior liner of the refrigerator. There will be a small wiring harness attached to the light that will need to be disconnected. Replace with the new LED light and the case should snap back into the liner.
Before you attempt to perform any troubleshooting efforts, you should make sure you remove all power from the appliance first. If you continue to have trouble with your refrigerator’s light, you should contact a professional appliance service before taking any additional steps.
