The Reasons Your Fridge Doesn’t Have Light

You have a pint of ice cream in your freezer that you’ve been saving since yesterday. It’s the perfect food to indulge in as you binge-watch your favorite TV series on a Friday night. You open the freezer door to get it, and to your surprise, the light is not working! What could be the reason?

A non-working light in your freezer doesn’t really affect how it operates, but it can be an inconvenience, as it would be difficult to see the contents of your freezer. Find out the possible reasons the light in your freezer is not turning on. Note that not all freezers have light, but the discussion below could also apply to the light of your refrigerator.

Why There Is No Light in Your Freezer

  1. The light bulb is broken.

The light bulb inside the ref usually lasts long, but for one reason or another, it can get broken. You can visually check if the bulb is the issue. If there is a broken filament inside, then you have a fused bulb. Fortunately, it is easy to replace. Just twist it out of its socket and install a compatible replacement. If it still doesn’t work, then there may be another issue causing it.

  1. The light bulb socket gets no power.

Using a voltage tester, you can check if power gets to the light bulb socket. If there is no voltage, then you have found the possible root of the problem.

  1. The light switch is broken.

Depending on your ref model, there is a push button that looks like a switch near the hinge of your ref door. It gets pressed and unpressed as you close and open the ref door. This is what triggers the turning on and off of the light. An obstruction may be blocking it, causing it to remain pressed when you open the ref door. It is also possible that it is damaged and needs repair.

  1. The circuit board is defective.

Again, depending on your ref model, it may have a circuit board that connects to the parts we have mentioned so far. If parts of this circuit board are broken, then it will not bring light to the bulb.

How do I fix my freezer light?

Fixing your freezer light is quite simple if the problem only involves the bulb. You just have to make sure that the replacement has the recommended wattage. You can bring the defective bulb to a store and ask for something similar. However, if solving the problem requires opening up parts of your ref, it is best to leave it to a refrigerator technician for proper refrigerator maintenance and repair. Aside from possibly causing more damage to your unit, you can also hurt yourself if the repair is not done properly.
