Model #LRFC22750SW LG Bottom-Mount Refrigerator

Went on service call and the socket was melted and plastic. Ordered new sockets and bulbs has now happened again started doing some googling apparently this is a problem, I just can't find any fixes for it. Anyone have any ideas? I checked the door switches and they seemed to be shutting off and on the lights when I pushed it. Is this a control board issue? Thanks for your help

Needs new socket assembly with harness and control board. I think I heard there was a class action lawsuit about this.

Here is what I found
http://www.fixya.com/support/t658045-refrigerator_lights_stayed_melted.

The board is bad, relay not turning off, lights stay on..  Was a serial number issue, and LG should cover models, for ten years from date of purchase.

I found some information on this in many places.  Hope this gets you started.

Contact LG. There is a specific repair kit based off of the model number. The new kit will come with a new light assembly that has a thermostat built into it to shut off the lights to keep them from overheating. You will also get a new PCB board to install as well. I'm sorry i don't have the bulletin handy. I hope this helps.

I think I bought one of these http://www.ledtronics.com/Products/products_new.aspx?category=Decor+Bulbs&sub=Y&lamp_style=A14  for an Ancient Amana refrigerator.  All because the lamp holder is impossible to come by.

Not all A14 bulbs are created equal.  These wouldn't quite fit without extending the button on the base.  Nice bulbs though,
