Light at top doesn’t go out when door closes and heats up tremendously melting part of the housing. Pressing the the door switch does not turn light off. Do I need a new control board or switch? I have a control board from the matching freezer. What are the chances I could put that in the fridge?

New switch and nothing changed. Old switch registered 0.0-0.2ohms. Putting a bulb in for just seconds and it heats up tremendously.
Can I put a control board in from the matching freezer?

This was the switch at rest?...if yes, that is normal.
Should have showed infinity ohms with the switch pressed.

If the model#'s an board #'s are the same, should be able to no problem.
