Hello my name isXXXXX will be assisting you with this problem today. Thanks for trusting us to help you with this appliance question.

Can you give me a minute to look up the model number please.
Ok Scott the light fitting should read 12vdc, the problem seems a bit odd because if you are reading 12vdc then the light should be working unless it is bad, Having said that if the 12vdc does not shut off when the switch is pushed then you also have a bad switch. It is possible the switch failed leaving the light on all the time, this could have caused the light fitting to burn out.

check switches both are o omhs when closed and close to infinite when open can find no power at the switches.hooked up leds to feed to check if going to zero under load still reads 13.55 vdc .this is with the switches removed. is their must be a power supply some where

There is a transformer in the rear that powers up this light fitting, There is no direct wiring to the light, it is wired through the door switch, only thing I can think of at this point is maybe you have a bad neutral. This would be a wiring issue that will take some diagnosis and tracing wires, testing them. I will see if I can come up with a wiring diagram.

Will post back shortly.
