Hello my name isXXXXX will assist you tonight
Just so I understand before i answer you, you do not want any lights when you open the door
I want the ability to turn off the lights from time to time without having to manually open up the casing and unplug the LED connection...I'm trying to determine what actually triggers the lights on and off when the door is closed...
When you open the doors, up on top of the cabinet should be a plastic piece, inside that piece there is at least one possibly two reed switches, that act like the door switch. They are operated by magnets in the door,
The only way would be to remove the cover expose the reed switches and use a small magnet to trip the switch
Can you clarify where that piece is?
look at this link, it will show you exactly what i am talking about
If I bought a small, tiny magnet and placed it over that area... would that work? Or would it prevent the doors from closing tight enough
they look nothing like a switch, but work just like them, if could get a thin one you might be ok, but too thick and yes the door would not close properly
Interesting. If it felt like the door was closing properly (with a potential thin magnetic strip on those areas), is there any reason to assume its not?
no and if it is holding to far out i think you will see moisture on the magnet
Got it. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX the help
