Dometic Refrigerator Lightbulb


We have a 2008 Safari 27' FB with the standard Dometic refrigerator. The control board was replaced in April, and all is well, except: We have burned out, in short order, three interior lightbulbs. To the best of my ability to ascertain, the bulb switch in the door is functioning, and the voltage in the bulb contacts seemed fine. The bulbs typically burn out in two to five days.
Otherwise, the refrigerator is a perfect servant.

Any ideas, or solutions? All the Best.... Jeff Cooney

Since it's difficult to find someone who will fit in the refrigerator to see if the light goes out, put some chalk on the switch and close the door, open it and see if the chalk is on the door. The switch may be adjustable and can be moved closer to the door. I'm assuming you operated the switch manually and it shut off the light. I just looked at our refrigerator, and if yours is the same, I don't see how the switch can't work, but ours is kind of loose, though it works fine.

Can you just remove the bulb and rely on the room lights to see inside? Not the best solution, but a solution.
