All lights flashing off then on in refrigerator in this side-by-side unit.
Freezer is not exhibiting this behavior.

The Light Bulbs should be 40w or less, otherwise chance of burning out the Controller.
Check the Bulb wattage and try removing a few Bulbs to see if they stop flashing.

We've had this unit since 2006 and never replaced the bulbs. I think it's unlikely that the bulbs are anything other than factory-installed. What do you think? Even so, could one bulb be the culprit or is the controller likely already morte? (Is the controller customer-replaceable?)

Thank you!
