Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The issue has to be low voltage to the socket. We need to see exactly how the voltage gets there to determine where to test.
May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
That model uses a 12 VDC bulb. It is powered through the low voltage dispenser board. Do you have a meter to test the voltage at the socket?
Can you see what voltage you are seeing at the socket? Also, you are using 12 VDC bulbs, correct?
Correct, but the voltage changes at the board in the back to DC voltage at the dispenser. Did you buy the bulb locally? You will probably need to order the correct bulb, that is probably the issue.
It is a 12 volt DC socket, so you would need the correct bulb. I doubt Lowe's carries that bulb in a DC with that base.
If the voltage is 12 VDC at the socket, it is a bulb issue.
You bet, thank you!
Sure, thank you!
I don't have any access to the accounting stuff, only this question. I assume you must have gotten an auto message for rating, also nothing I have control over. If there is no voltage at the socket, how is the light bulb working but dim?
So 2/100 of a volt? That would not make the light glow at all. Are you sure you are reading your meter correctly?
If the rest of the dispenser board is working, that means the DC voltage from the main board in the back is working. That means the dispenser board has issues.
If all connections are good and no issues at the door hinge connections, that will probably be the required action.
