Title: Frigidaire french door light problem.
Post by: HAS on January 17, 2013, 10:47:47 AM
I have a French Door Frigidaire unit  # fgun2642lf4 I am having problem with the lights in the fridge section ( no lights at all.)  Does anybody have the service manual or some helpful advice what could be the problem. We have changed the main control board on the bottom fridge and still nothing. Can anybody help.

I have attached a copy of the tech sheet.

What is the part number of the main control board you already replaced?

Looking at the wiring diagram the refrigerator lights get power directly from the refrigerator control board and there is of coarse the door switch that kills the power to the refrigerator lights.

AJ, Want controls the lights in the fresh food section besides the main board?  What shuts them off and on when the doors are open and shut. The lights are Not LEDS they are regular lights.

Refrigerator door opening is determined by magnetic switch on user interface.

I wonder if the magnetic switch is on this board then, part # 242048304 (http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Main-Control-Board/242048304/1795701?modelNumber=FGUN2642LF4)

Yah,  the magnets are in the sides of the door.  they have to line up properly for the lights to go out.  keep in mind that on alot of these new fridges the light will turn off if they are on for to long.  make sure the doors are aligned properly.  disconnect power from the machine, and turn it back on.  if the lights come on, you know the doors are not lined up correct.

Found the problem, a loose wire on the main board underneath the fridge. Thanks for all the advice guys.
