Hi all, in 2017 we put a KitchenAid model KBFN506ESS01 in our new home. Today I noticed that 4 of the LED lights are out (one on the bottom right side and all three on the left side - see picture). The rest of the lights (top, drawers and freezer) seem to be fine. Are these wired in series? Could it just be one bad LED module? Any help would be appreciated!

Hi,

Your missing the last 2 digits in your model number. The model number tag is located inside the refrigerator section on the upper walls or ceiling.

Here's the results I get:
KBFN506ESS00
KBFN506ESS01

Yes, the LED lights are in series, once you post your exact model number I can tell you the series path per the tech. data sheet.

Thanks,

I'm attaching the wiring diagram for your model below. All the LED Lights use the exact same part number, so what you can do is take a good one and start swapping out the LED's that don't light up, one at a time, then when you find the one that is the problem child you will know because the rest in that series will light up.

Here's the RC(Refrigerator Interior) LED's for your model:
LED Light W11462342


There is a video in the part link that shows you how to remove and replace them.

Hi Jake, I was able to find an LED module online (backordered most places, must be the pandemic). Since the lower right light was the odd light out I thought I would start with replacing that one. As rarely happens, the first one was the correct one and all of my lights are now working.

Thank you again for all of your help!
