How to Fix Whirlpool Refrigerator Lights Not Working  

Are your Whirlpool refrigerator lights not working? Don’t worry. Unless it’s really an old one, it might just need a few tweaks to make the lights work again.

We share some of the possible ways you can fix these broken lights:

Easiest Way to Fix Whirlpool Refrigerator Lights Not Working

Have you heard of Whirlpool’s Sabbath mode? That might be the easiest way to fix your “broken” fridge lights.

The brand features a Sabbath mode in several appliances to help those who practice Judaism and similar religions follow religious practices, particularly about Sabbath or Shabbat, a rest day.

Check your fridge’s screen or settings. If the lights for “Sabbath” or “Saturday” are flashing, it means that the mode is on. The interior lights, indicator lights, and control panel turn off but the temperature settings actually work.

To turn off, press for 3 seconds. If that doesn’t work, check the manual for instructions for your specific fridge model.

Try Running the Power Cycle

Turn off the fridge, unplug the power cord, then reconnect after 30 seconds. This might fix the issue.

Change the Defective Light Switch

If the process above doesn’t work, the switch might be defective. In most refrigerators, the light switch is manually pressed “off” by the door’s inner edge. It springs back to “on” when the door is opened.

Locate the switch, usually near the top. Press the switch repeatedly. If it doesn’t work, it’s time to replace it.

This can be difficult to fix at home if you don’t have the right tools or experience. Get the fridge fixed by a professional.

Loose or Faulty Wiring or Light Bulb

Check if the light bulb is loose. Sometimes it slowly unscrews and becomes loose with regular movement. You can tighten it.

If that doesn’t work, perhaps there are wirings that might have become loose or broken. Again, have this fixed by a professional.
