I used a slow blow fuse. The blown one looked like it was a slow blow - there was quite a bit of material in it - but it was hard to tell because it was blown.

You should be getting a fresh batch of ice every two hours or so. If it is taking longer than that, then the freezer temp is not going down low enough, fast enough for the ice maker to work properly. Also check to see if the heater element for ice removal is working - if it has burned out the new cubes are stuck in there and it can take a while for them to be freed up so a new ice making cycle can commence.

You probably have a burnt out fuse. Unfortunately, it is hardwired to the motherboard. LGs solution is to take it to an authorized dealer, they will replace the motherboard for $270 part and labor. The other solution is to take off the panel in the back of the refrigerator unplug the connections from the Motherboard and disconect the it from the 4 corner pins. You will see the fuse at the bottom of the board (mine was definately burnt out). I took it to an electronics shop. They identified the fuse as a 15A / 125 v fast blo. suggested replacing it with 15 A / 125 v slow blo ceramic fuse ($1.25). They also sold me two fuse holder clips. Used soldering Iron after viewing a Utube instructional video to take out the bad fuse and install the clips (took one of the 2 prongs off and had to file the other to fit in hole) with solder. Snapped in the ceramic fuse and reinstallded in back of the refrigerator. Plugged it in and all systems are go!

GE side by side has ice from top to bottom on inside back wall of freezer. GE repairman replaced defrost heater about 2 years ago. Could this part burn out this fast. Freezer temp. is 25 to 30 degrees.

It shouldn't burn out that fast but may have. Some of the side by sides came from the factory with only one heater. Later on it was decided that the replacement heater kit include a second heater. This could be the case for you.

Radio Shak had it. I just did the same thing with mine and figured id try and give it a go myself. Turned out, $20 at Radioshak for a solder gun, fuse holder, new fuse and an hour of my time was worth it.
The difference between a "Fast acting" and "Slow burn" (also known as Time-Delay fuse) is one is for a resistive load, and the other an inductive load. Resistive loads are like lights and circuit boards, where the amperage is relatively constant. Inductive loads (time-delay) are motors, things that require a large in-rush current to get moving like the compressor on your fridge. Hope this helps.

LG Model LFC23760 (French Doors, bottom freezer) power prob

Unplug fridge.
Open panel on back of fridge (the one at hip height that says Service Panel Only - Do Not Remove, blah blah blah)
See pictures here:
Replace fuse with 9A 250V slow-burn fuse. I used a gray fuse harness from Radio Shack so that if the fuse needs to be replaced again I can just pop in a new one without doing the soldering over.
I nuked the original fuse, the end-caps and the wires that went from the end-caps/fuse to the motherboard. I replace those wires with some I scavenged off a fresh thermal fuse (also bought at RS, just needed the wires themselves which seemed to be the same diameter/gauge as the original leads) and ran them from the motherboard to the wire harness.
So far, so good!
Good luck to you.

Just replace the fuse, I just did it today (3/6/10). Unf. Radio shack only had an 8A slow-burn fuse so I used that for now but the fridge is working. I nuked the leads on the fuse so I soldered on some of the lead of a thermal fuse that I also got at Radio Shack (I just used the leads and tossed the fuse). I also put the fuse inside of a harness in case it needs to be replaced again, no soldering. Good luck!
