I have a 3-year-old Kenmore Elite refrigerator, double door with bottom freezer. This morning my daughter woke me up to tell me that the refrigerator temperature was registering 124 degrees! I checked it and indeed it was, however, the inside of the fridge did not feel that hot, but was warmer than the normal 38 degrees we keep it at.
I took the light bulb out and the temperature slowly went back to normal over about 4 hours or so. What could have caused it to register at 124 degrees? Could it have been the light bulb? The light bulb was tested and it still works.
