Both lights have burned...

Both lights have burned out for my refrigerator , and the sockets show signs of burn. Refrigerator works fine otherwise. Do I need to replace entire assembly unit where lights are located or just the two sockets

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

Model # AFB2534FES

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

DEPENDS ON SCOPE

Not yet. I just saw black on out side of socket and thought it could be socket replacement
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 7 months ago

very hard to believe that both socket have failed at the same time.

Also have you tested the door switches?

Actually one socket blew on friday and the other today
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
door switches are fine
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 7 months ago

ok so then if the door switches are fine did you test then for voltage or just continuity?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
not yet but will do. My more fundamental issue is , if necessary, do I need to replace sockets only or the assembly unit it sits on ?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 7 months ago

Just the light socket themselves.
