My GE 19 yr old fridgeworks great. The only issue is that the light is not staying lit. When I jostlethe socket, the light will flicker on and off, so I am guessing I have a looseconnection or bad wire. When I push the two wires into the socket, the light will stay on. I have tried tightening or loosening the new bulb andit stays on for a moment, but then goes out. I also tried pulling the metal clip inthe socket to ensure it has a good connection with the bottom of the bulb, butthat didn't work. I also checked the door switch and it works freely and is notgummed up by food, etc. I was able to pull the socket and wires that connectinto it down from it's spot in the fridge, but do not know enough about wiringto know what to do next. If it's a loose wire, can I fix it without knowinganything about wiring? Do I need a new socket instead? Do the two wires simplypull out of the socket like a plug in play and if so, could it be a matter of simply pushing them into the socket better? Will I be left with two loosewire ends if I pull them straight out?
