Outside door light won't turn off The light on the outside door (where the ice/water dispenser is) won't turn off. It is dimmer than when you hit the 'light' button, but it stays on constantly when the door is shut. The 'light' button works and turns the bulb brighter, but when you turn it off, it just dims and doesn't go out. The light shuts off when the door is open and turns back on when its closed.

My outside light got stuck ON. I tried to SET it by holding the LIGHT button and it would make its musical noise but would not shut off the light. I went through numerous iterations of LOCKing and UNLOCKing the panel and finally the light went out after I held the LIGHT button. I hope this isn't a sign that the electronics are going out.
