Question about Refrigerators
The light is on, the motor is running, and the freezer is working (although ice maker is condensating). But the fridge is not cooling at all....no air comes out of the air thing when I depress the door closed button. Last time this happened, a repairman told us it was a grate of some sort stuck in a closed position, and that we could open it ourselves......but I don't remember where that place is! Please help!

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.

anan, I think your display is giving you a code on these LG. See if you can find the tech sheet behind the toe panel. On your display panel from memory, 3 led's lit from the left means a failed defrost thermistor. This could be the reason you are frosting up and restricting the air flow. There is a main board in back that you can ohm out the thermistors. Connector 4, the two bright orange wires #5 and 6, should ohm at 19K ohms at 50 degrees. Now Im doing this from memory, if you can find your tech sheet, it will give you precise information. Catriver.

Your condenser coil is frozen up with condensate...need to fix the defrost system, most likely it is the control sub module.

There are a few things that it could be. Do you mean the evaparator coil? This would be the coil on the inside of the freezer, the condenser is outside the unit. If the evap. coil is freezing, you could have to much in your freezer blocking air flow. You could also have a evap. fan not running. Check the owner's manual for the location of the defrost timer, it could be bad. The thermostat needs to be checked and set so that it is at a reasonable level. One last thing to check would be the condensate drain. Make sure the drain is not plugged or the line is not plugged. Good luck.

SOURCE: MY ICE MAKER WON'T WORK
This is an error code for the icemaker fan motor.
If the control does not see a signal coming back from the fan motor you will get this error code.
Please see the image below from the service manual that explains the ER IF error code.
The ER IF code indicates a failure of the icing fan.
You may notice slower ice production but the other fans should be okay.
You can select the ultra ice option and see if the fan toggles on.
The fan or the control is bad.
