Product Description

Light Switch Specifications

The interior light of your refrigerator is controlled by a switch that is activated when the door is opened and closed. If your refrigerator light will not turn on, there could be an issue with the switch. The switch is spring loaded and is a generally closed type of switch meaning there should be no continuity when the button is depressed, and continuity through the switch when the button is not depressed. This plastic, white, OEM switch is sourced directly from the manufacturer, is sold individually and is easy to replace. The repair usually takes less than 15 minutes and requires a flat blade screwdriver and needle nose pliers.

Light out
Turned off the breaker to the fridge because I couldn't reach the power plug to unplug it . Use small flat head screwdriver to pop out the piece, disconnected the rubber prong connectors, inserted the new piece into the rubber prongs snapped it back into place. Flipped the breaker back on and prayed it worked. It did and I saved myself $120 service call.

Light would no longer turn on
I watched the video online, followed the instructions and within minutes had the part installed. The frig light was working once again! I will say the original switch was very snug and I had to do some very minor scraping of the plastic to get the new part to slide in.

light not working
I used pliers to pull lightly on the head of the switch, while I inserted a small flat head screw driver into the base of switch and gently worked around the edges to free it from the panel.

July 20, 2017
Hi, I want to replace a defective hot point ctx18els refrigerator door light switch and found this part# wr23x10725 from your site. However your compatibility check tells me the part is not compatible. My original part's specification is as follows: 5a - 125v, 2.5a - 250vac. Can someone help me find the correct part #? Thank you.
For model number Hot Point CTX18ELS
PartSelect logo
Hi Kenneth, it appears that CTX18ELS is not a complete model number, which is why the compatibly check is not returning the proper result. If you have model number CTX18ELSRAD, CTX18ELSRHA, or CTX18ELSRWH the switch you have listed above (WR23X10725) will fit in your appliance. I hope this helps!

On my refrigerator my light bulb just dangles down.. there was some clip or cover that held it in place.. can i replace that..?
For model number CTX14CAXKRWH
PartSelect logo
Hello Mark, Thank you for contacting us. I have checked the parts list for your model and they do not show a light bulb cover. They do show the light socket as having a clip on it. Perhaps this is damaged? If so you would need part number PS299782 to replace it. I hope this helps!
