    Question Refrigerator light doesn't work

    Model Number: LFX25960SW
    Brand: LG
    Age: More than 10 years

    the light on the refrigerator section doesn't work. the bulbs are OK. The door switches are OK. the "door Open" alarm works. there is no power to the light sockets. I cleaned the door switches and the lights worked for a couple of days then quit. Can you suggest what the problem is?

    I do not know what you mean by cleaning the door switches.
    But since that worked for a couple days I would start there.
    Check them with a meter to be sure they are working.
    Also look for a loose/poor connection in that area.

    I meant that I cleaned the switch contacts, but I checked the switches and they are OK. When I depress either of the door closed switches an quickly released them the lights flicker on for an instant, then go out. Is there some circuitry that is supposed to keep the lights on until the doors close again? I don't see anything that I can access without taking the outer cover off the fridge.

    As far as I know there is not any circuitry that keeps the lights on.

    I still stand by my earlier post.
    If you have checked the wiring I would replace the switch!!!
