    What is the simplest way to prove the light turns off in the refrigerator when the door is closed?

    Push the button that the door pushes when it closes. Voila! The light turns off!

      This is simple, and shows that the button turns off the light.  But does the door closing firmly contact the button?

      okay, take the light bulb out. Then you know for sure. wink

    Put your digital video cam   in the refrigerator, turn it on, close the door-- after a few seconds open the fridge and view the video.
    Or you could do it with a still  digital camera set with a delay timer.

      This would provide proof, and is simple.  I will leave the question open for a while longer to see if anyone can think of an instrument even simpler than a camera.  This may be the best answer...

    Put a video camera or smart phone in the fridge and record the closing of the door.

      I wonder if there is something simpler that could work.  How could kids 20 or 30 years ago before cell phones or video cameras were common confirm that the light goes out?

    Some things you just have to take on faith.

      This is true.   However, I think the refrigerator light problem is tractable with the suggestions people have offered.  If the video camera method turns out to be the simplest, I plan to post a video that proves that the light goes off...
