Default Interior Light does not work anymore
Model Number: TR18KL   Brand: Amana   Age: More than 10 years

The interior light just stopped working a few days ago.

I replaced the 40 watt bulb - but it still does not work. I even tested the 40 watt bulb in another appliance - and the bulb worked fine.

I don't see where much else is easily accessible. There is some wiring to the unit that holds the light bulb - but that disappears underneath the covering. There is also the switch - that turns on the light when the door is open and shut - I do not see how to easily access this either?

Is there anything else that I can do short of having to calling a repair man or throwing the refridgerator out. I am very decent in being able to do home repairs - but I don't see any choices to get the light working again.

Thanking you in advance.

Put on a GLOVE and TIGHTEN the bulb!!!! The seal around the bulb is grabbing the bulb before you get it tight enough.

Thank you - I put on a rubber glove and tightened as much as I could - but still does not work. ANy tighter and the bulb will break.

You should be able to pry, pop the switch out to bypass it to see if that's the problem.
