LG LFX25960 Refrigerator not cooling

My LG LFX25960 (Bottom Freezer French Door) refrigerator is not cooling properly. Neither the freezer on the bottom nor the fresh food section on top is cooling. I have dismantled the freezer section and checked the back of the fridge. The two fans inside the back of the freezer and the fan on the bottom of the back of the fridge is working fine. The coils in the back of the fridge have just been cleaned of the moderate amount of dust that was on it. Also the coils inside the freezer are not frozen. Does anyone here know what the problem can be?

SOURCE: Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

SOURCE: GE TPX24BPBGBB fresh food section won't cool

Have you noticed any ice built up on the rear freezer wall? it is very likely that you have a defrost problem situation,IE: Heater,Defrost Thermostat,Defrost Timer any failure in these components will cause an icing problem and therefore you will not get sufficient air flow to the Food Compartment

I had the same thing and it cost me 300 bucks to have a circuit board replaced. I think it controlled defrost cycle.

SOURCE: Water leaking from freezer

Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate)
This will prevent water from comming out the freezer door and leaking onto your floor and running down your copper pipe to the basement.

Lg lfx25960st not cool enough


1. What are your controls (freezer & refer) set at?
LG recommends 0 deg for the freezer & 37 deg for the refer.

2. The way a modern refrigerator works is, the freezer is cooled directly and cold air then is blown into the refer section. The incoming vents in a French door LG are at the back, top. Return are at the bottom. Make certain that nothing is blocking these vents and than the refer has good air circulation.

3. Vacuum the coils at the back of the refer. A large build up of dust, dirt, animal hair etc. will affect efficiency.

Roaring sound


I have had the same issues. I have owned my LFX25960 for 18 months. All the cooling, noise, and condensation problems are related to 2 fans. One for the freezer/refrigerator compartments and One for the Ice Maker. The fans, apparently, are not sufficient to move enough air through the coils located behind a plastic panel in the freezer compartment. The part numbers for my fans are 1. Ice Maker 4681JB1029E and Refrig/Freezer 4681JK1004E. It is not impossible, but fairly difficult to replace them yourself. You have to remove the large slide out freezer drawer and glides. Then work the back freezer panel loose from the bottom. Be careful not to break it. It is plastic.
Routine maintenance: Pull the refrig out from the wall and blow-out the coils and fan located on the lower right rear. You might find it easier to do this by removing the cover on the lower, back of the refrig.
