Customer Question

hi this is Blade with Keller Appliance. i have an electolux fghn2844le8 refrigerator that will not shut off the refrigerator compartment lighting or the freezer door control panel when doors are shut. previous owner had an exposed wire at the hinge due to improper hinge cover alignment. that has been fixed. it still has the same issue after a lightning storm surge happened when the wire was exposed. is there a magnetic switch in the compartment separator or would it be the board . if so i need help locating what terminals at which board goes to the lighting switch system. thanks

On your model the two door switches are mechanical switches and look like this -- should be able to locate them in the door frame area of the cabinet. With the power off and a multimeter you should have continuity when the door is open or the switch out of its housing and open circuit when the switch lever is pressed in.
