Question about Refrigerators
SOURCE: suddenly tripped off house
Hi akula, 200 ks to a fridgie, LG appliance, you must be in Australia;) Is it the earth leakage circuit breaker operating. If so, then you have a leakage problem to earth from the heater pad(not quite sure what that is, but this problem will need to be repaired. Am doing some research to see if there is anything that can be done without just getting a new fridge. Back to you soon.

1) the gas in the refrigerator never has to be refilled, it is a sealed system. some one ripped you off. 2)if the thermostat is bad they are easy to replace. take the model # and bring it to your local parts house. sears now repairs all brands so if you have no parts house go to sears repair center. 3)you say the thermostat doesn't shut off. does the milk or soda in the refrigerator section freeze? get a food thermometer and leave it in a glass of water check the temp. of the water after an hour or two it should read 37- 42 degrees.if it is colder than that what setting is the thermometer set at, it should be on the energy efficient setting or the middle of the range.. if after all these minor checks, make sure your doors are closing properly and the light is going off. you may have a door adjustment problem. if allthese tests are ok then get a new thermostat, but remember all parts are not returnable so make sure you get the part you need. self help books are available at your local library check one out!

remove the fridge from caravan, now turn upside down and leave for as long as possible. what this does is get rid of any air locks in the gas. once left for a month or too turn back and leave for a day to setal and refit to caravan.this should solve your problem, it has been tried and tested on our caravan and worked. (This will not work on a domestic house fridge because they work on a different system)

use a set of needle nose pliers & disconnect the igniter wire the module should start clicking if it does not click check the wires to the board clean them good & reconnect if the module still wont start clicking your board is bad if it does click the igniter adjustment off stick a nickle between the igniter & burner the gap should be the size of the nickle 3/16"

If there is no cooling at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that the compressor and gas pressure is OK. Now shut off the fridge and leave it powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if ice forms in the freezer then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.
