Hello, all

My fridge light has stopped working and I have tried two new replacement bulbs - nothing. The new bulbs have been tested, and work, and the fridge itself is still working. It is just the light fitting. The fridge is a LEC Elan 'A' Class and is 10+ years old. Any suggestions, anyone, please?

If the fridge cools, and the lamps are known to work, its probably the switch. Is the switch moving freely? Can you take it out?,(un-plug fridge) and THEN check the lamp and switch connections? If you have no further joy, a fridge is a white goods appliance so I would suggest you try This place

Have a look through these to see if you can spot your switch https://shop.ukwhitegoods.co.uk/catalog ... TCH+FRIDGE

more than likely a bad door switch or pcb. a model number would help

edit. the switch is a standard part.its easy enough to pull out and test with a multimeter (fridge unplugged of course)

Example.

Either bad switch or damaged light fitting the thread or centre may be damaged

They are the only two options I can think of.

The centre point on an ES fitting is always a good starter for trouble.
