I have a model GD55HA side by side. The light on the refrigerator side makes a buzzing sound and flickers when the door is opened. I had to remove the bulb. Tried a new bulb but had the same problem. The light on the freezer side works fine. Any ideas before I call a serviceman?

Welcome Mr C to the best darn DIY'r site on the net.

Now, did you try the same thing with no light? Sure sounds like a loose connection but I always try every possible condition.

not sure how a light bulb can make a buzzing noise, are you sure the noise is from the bulb, as for the flickering, sometimes on them refrigerator bulbs you have to turn them in hard. What I mean is after you've twisted it all the way in, give it another light turn, make it really tight.

I don't think the bulb is making the noise----sounds like it is in the socket or deeper. Reminds me of the buzzing or growling type of sound you hear when a three phase circuit is single phasing.

light issue with my whirlpool side by side

My frig is doing the same thing, it seams to be buzzing from the box that the bulb screws into.
