Re: the lights in the cooler are very dim, and there is no light in the freezer

I had the same problem. The LED module in my freezer was bad (1 of 4 LEDs on the board was open circuit). When I repaired the freezer module, all 3 light modules were full bright again.

The part number on my freezer module is WPW10515057, but double check yours when you pull it out before ordering a replacement.

From what I've seen on these forums, a lot of these freezer modules fail. Probably due to the thermal cycling from the defroster heater. All 12 LEDs in all 3 LED modules are all wired in series, like a string of cheap Christmas lights. When 1 LED fails, they all go dark. It's a really bad design.
I found a video on how to get the led light out from the refrigerator however I can’t get the one out of the freezer compartment, what am I doing wrong? Any helpful hints greatly appreciated!!

Hi,

What's the model number of your refrigerator? The model number tag is located inside the refrigerator section on the upper walls or ceiling.
