Light switches are good. Think its about the time out sensor. Not sure who made it for ken wondering why they would do this to the lights.

made by LG
i havn't been able to find the wiring diagram, if you can take a picture of yours on the back of the fridge and post it up
i suspect the lights are switched,and then controled by a relay on a board, this relay is probably stuck closed
some fridges have a thermostat located near the lights to prevent overheating,and this would explain why the lights go out and not work for a while, the therm trips and then has to cool before it resets

without that wiring diagram i am thinking you need the good ole LG fridge control board


i hope you have removed the light bulbs to prevent further damage

Kenmore 795.77243602 made by LG

similar to LRFD22850ST

quote from post of a different LG model:

This repair is **usually** done by LG for free.
Call LG Customer Service: 1-800-342-0000

Parts needed:
1) Main Board
2) Lens Cover
3) Reflector
4) Case / Housing
5) Sockets
6) Overlay

The new MAIN BOARD has a much larger lightbulb-relay---which reduces the possibility of a repeat.

In addition--the SOCKET ASSY has a THERMOSTAT wired-in. This shuts off the light bulbs if the temperature of the lightbulbs & the housing becomes too hot.
