So unfortunately I do not have good news for you I'm sorry to say. The problem isn't your bulb and it isn't your light switch. This model is actually made by LG and sold by Sears under the Kenmore Name. The relay for the lights on the main control board is known to fail often. You can't replace just the relay board. You would need to order and replace the control board to resolve the issue. Below is a link to the control board located on the back of the refrigerator behind an 8" x 10" access panel. If you're handy you can definitely replace the part yourself. It's all plug and play and only takes about 15-20 minutes to swap out.
