Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't the light work in the refrigerator?

A:

The power to the light switch comes from the black wire that connects to the defrost timer. I have included a wire diagram for you. If the defrost system on your refrigerator works then there is voltage to the black wire. If you don't have any voltage on the black wire at the door switch it would indicate a broken wire between the defrost timer and the door switch. To check this you will first need to unplug the refrigerator at the wall outlet. You can access the control panel now by removing the top back 2 screws behind the control panel. Next pull out the control knobs and now very carefully pry off the escutcheon. Behind the escutcheon will be 2 screws at the top of the control, remove these screws and the control panel will drop down. You will now have complete access to the controls and wiring. If you are comfortable making this type of check now you can check the black wire between the light switch and the timer. Make sure the unit is still disconnected. I hope this has helped you. If you need more assistance you can resubmit your question with more details.

Q:

How do I access the light switch inside my Kenmore refrigerator model 1069430482?

A:

To access the light switch, follow these steps:

  • Unplug the refrigerator to completely disconnect electrical power.
  • Pull the control knobs (Keys 26 & 27 in the image below) off of the refrigerator control.
  • With a small flat tip screw driver, pry the escutcheon (Key 25) off of the front of the control. Start prying on the bottom left side. It will snap out.
  • You should be able to pull the light switch (Key 4) out of the opening in the front of the control box (Key 1) without further disassembly.
If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can test for continuity through the leads of the switch with the plunger extended.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
