      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

ken frig 795.77243602 Fresh food section the lights are possessed will stay on with the doors closed burnt the top a bit then will not come on at all this go on back and forth. 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.
