Refrigerator lights stay on when doors close

\015 Apparently the refrigerator lights stopped going off when the doors\015\012were closed. A tub of butter was stored on the shelf directly below the\015\012lights. The next morning the tub of butter was entirely melted. Part of the light assembly looked like it dropped down about an inch. I\015\012thought that we had not closed the doors properly. The next morning upon opening the doors we noted that the entire light/temperature control assembly was hangin by its electrical connection only. The plastic had melted & the base of each light was brown on the upper edge. We are operating the refrigerator with the bulbs unscrewed.\015

Answers :

HI. The light is connected to a door switch that shuts down the power to the light when it is depressed by the door when it is closed. This switch may be faulty.

Test the switch for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should change from a reading of infinity to zero when the probes touch the terminals. With the probes still touching the terminals depress the switch, the reading should change back to infinity. If it does not pass both of these tests, the switch should be replaced.
The switch and possibly the circuits may be faulty. Certainly the switch should be replaced. Test wire to circuits.
