Fired up the fridge which duly started to beep every few minutes. I found out that the interior light was staying on and what I have found out is even when the door is closed and the latch pushes the metal contact in, there is a very dim glow of the 4 led bulbs in the light.

So I disconnected the light, problem solved. I could just leave it like that but it bugs me knowing it's not right. My question is, before I start thinking about buying a new light, could the problem be the wiring or is it most likely to be the led light itself? If the light unit is expensive it might end up staying the way it is.

Thanks in advance for any tips.

I had the same thing, I replaced the board and it happened again a few months later.
I then removed the board and found condensation to be the cause I dried the board with a hair drier then sprayed it with a circuit board lacque, no more problems.đź‘Ť

Thanks Steve, I'll try that when I get a chance. For now, I'll have to do me R Whites impression in the dark.
