Before you do anything else, make sure that your dimmer wheel isn't rolled all the way to the "always on" position.

The most common cause is sticking door ajar switches. You have as many switches as you have doors, so check them all.

spray the door latches with some wd-40 that worked for me on.... I sprayed some in then I would open and close the doors several times and the light would shut off.
