Hey everyone,  I'm working on a Frigidaire french-door refrigerator model no. LGHN2844MF, made in 2012 that the fresh-food lights won't shut off when the doors are closed.  I can not find any door switches.  I took off the top hinge covers and they are not there.  I assume they use a magnetic reed switch somewhere in the cabinet but I tried to trigger them with a magnet with no luck.  If anyone knows where they are hidden, please let me know.  If it's not the switch then I guess the main board relay may be stuck closed.  What do you think???  I didn't get into it too much yet as I thought I could unscrew the light bulbs not thinking that it may have LEDs (not sure) but the door alarm keeps blinking and beeping.  Please help if you can.  Thanks!

I had one that had the reed switch located on the user interface board. Take a metal screw driver and go along the edge of the right side door. You should be able to find the magnet.

Usually adding a shim or raising the door a hair depending on style fixes issue not closing reed switch.
