OK Gideon, As the bulbs are good, let's check the door switch to see if it might be possibly stuck in the closed position. Check all around the inner edge of the fridge section and locate the switch. If the switch is stuck, it could also be affecting the circulating fan that helps keep the interior somewhat evenly cool.
\015\012The switch might be stuck "in" or it could be faulty and needs to be replaced. You can check the switch with a meter, if you have one, by either removing it from the fridge cabinet with a plastic putty knive. Just gently pry the edges to pop it out. I'd suggest you unplug the fridge first to prevent getting an electrical shock, should you accidently touch the connectors on the backside of the switch housing.
\015\012With the power off, you can use the Ohm settings on the meter to check for continunity and proper functioning. The switch, should, when depressed and released, should cause the meter to go from zero to the other end of the scale, as you push and release the switch button.
\015\012I highly doubt that the wiring is bad, so if it's not the simple switch that is faulty, it will be a control device that needs to be checked. With the model number of your particular fridge, we can isolate any further steps to check other possible issues and solutions.
\015\012Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

The light on the fridge side is out and there is a buzzing sound. Also the LED for the Temp Controls are out. When I take the light bulb out the buzzing sound goes away and the LED for the tempature controls come back on. I replaced the bulb with a new bulb and the problem does not change. It seems like something is wrong with the electrical system on the fridge side. It is like the bulb is loading down that part of the system. Also when I disengage the fridge light switch the sound goes away.

The light bulb burned out on LG Model LFC23760ST so I decided to clean the fridge as well as replace the light bulbs. I shut off the fridge at the circuit breaker so the door alarm wouldn't go off. I cleaned it, took maybe 1.5 hours, replaced bulbs, and then flipped the circuit breaker, the fridge will not come on. It is only 14 months old. I spent over an hour with LG guy and no help.

The fridge light flickers and makes a strange knocking noise when screwed in. I put in a new light hoping that would help, but it didn't work. The mechanism which displays the freezer and fridge setting turns off when bulb screwed in, but comes on again and the noise stops when the bulb is removed from the unit.
I suspect the main control down by the compressor may be faulty. Without a model number I can't give you specific information, but these controls have a pretty high failure rate. The "knocking" you describe is likely the relay(s) chattering. The boar ...

My GE Profile PDF 22mis/sis fridge was unplugged for a couple of weeks, and when I plugged it in today, there is a constant clicking sound from the compressor (?) in the back. The light inside the fridge comes on, but no cooling happens. I tried unplugging and plugging again, as well as leaving the fridge plugged in (with the constant clicking sound), but nothing changes.
