Kitchen Aid Model #KBRS36MHX01
As I mentioned, I replaced the bulbs, but no light... thank you
Waiting for your reply...L.
Robert has asked me to step in and see if I can help you solve your problem.
Please click on this link.
This shows a breakdown of your unit. Part #5 is the door switch. You will need ot drop the control consol to access it.
Just remove the screws on either side of the consol (part #8) and it should swing down.
You will need a volt ohm meter to test the switch with.
If you are not comfortable working with live electrical wires I strongly suggest that you hire a handyman to do this for you.
You need to see if there is 120 volts present at the switch. If there is on one side but not the other then the switch is your problem.
Considering thet the bulbs were so difficult to remove (most liekely from electrolisys) I will almost guarentee that the contacts in the switch are corroded and that is the problem.
Please post any other concerns here.
A little sandpaper to clean the contacts with and then slather some dielectric grease on the new bulbs as you put them in.
The switch you will have to replace.
Dielectric grease is non conductive.
Vasilene is very conductive and can cause you to be electrocuited or an electrical componant to short out.
If the lights are not working then the switch is the next componant in the electrical circuit, and very suspect if the bulbs had evidence of electrolisys.
