Does it really go off when you close the door?

I'm not so sure....

We found a bunch of melted food in our freezer. Found out the switch was defective, and the heat from the bulb was melting the food.

If you look really close, you'll see it go out just before the door shuts all the way.

Now you can rest better at night -- or maybe not? :-)

I can't rest better at night with that thing still under my bed. I don't know what it is, but I know it will get me sooner or later if I fall asleep.

You have light in your freezer?

Yup, there's a light in the freezer. It's usually covered up with bunch of food, though.

If it's not under your bed, it could be in the closet or behind the dresser. You know they can make themselves really flat and hide almost anywhere. Maybe you should stay awake.

the only way to REALLY get rid of it is to make sure the refrigerator light goes off. Here is my advice:

1. Remove contents of fridge.
2. Climb in fridge
3. Close door.
4. Does light go off?

If yes: You're safe, it's gone.

If no: Take Dog's advice, stay awake.

Oh, and by the way, the advice about using aluminum foil is just a myth and does NOT work.

Aluminum foil DOES WORK. It has kept them away from me for two months, 7 days, 3 hours, 19 minutes and 4 seconds. Now 5 seconds...now 6...now 7...now 8...now 9...now 10...now 11...now 12...now 13...
If worried....unplug it... : )nm

...I would like to point out that due to the non-ferrous nature of aluminum foil it has no capability what-so-ever to block communications and commands from aliens, the government, the collective-consciousness or Sally the-girl-next-door. Try silly-putty with iron filings mixed in, just wear a skull-cap or your scalp will become permanently stained with iron-oxide. An alternative, that will only work if your head is exceedingly small and pointed, is to wear one of those really large ketchup cans.
Regarding the-thingie-under-the-bed, try becoming friends with it. It may very well be related to a member of your local government and could prove a valuable ally when you lobby for a cessation of micro-wave transmissions.
As far as the first question, get real, the lights controlled by a micro-switch.
Lastly I would like to say the HYPHEN "-" is the only true way to a better place as you can see above.
...END OF TRANSMISSION....
