Question about LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator doesn't stay on.

LG Bottom Freezer Refrigerator model LFX25960ST.
We moved the frig into this house & hooked it up. It worked fine overnight. Later the next morning the refrigerator quit working. The freezer is still working fine. We've tried unplugging and re-plugging the cord. It will work from a few minutes, but then stops working, even the inside refrigerator light goes out (nope it's not the bulb). The alarm will continue to sound until we turn the alarm off (yep, the doors are closed). Any help will be appreciated.

    I had the same problem. I was told by LG that the freezer fan was frozen. (the fan circulates cold air from the freezer into the fridge area). I was told to unplug the unit for 6 hours to let the fan defrost. This did not work, and the fan had to be replaced.

Sounds like when you moved it you created an air lock, when moving fridges etc. should always leave for 24 hrs to settle before plugging in.... , no guarantee but try laying it down and leaving overnight then stand it up again and leave for at least 24 hrs for the refrigerant to try and sort itself out. UNPLUGGED from mains of course... good luck

You will have to buy a new board to solve it.

SOURCE: Refrigerator Lights Stayed on, Melted Plastic and Stopped Cooling

The problem is with the main motherboard. It needs to be replaced along with the light socekt assembly. The new assembly has a temperature sensor that will cutoff power to the lights if it happens again.

SOURCE: door open alarm will not shut off

Try pressing the cut off button manually while the door is open. It sounds like the switch may be bad.

SOURCE: Interior light bulbs stay on?

There is a switch on the inside of your frige that has gone bad. The switch is a slide type switch so when you open or close the door it makes the switch slide in and out, making the light come on and off. You need to write down the make and model # of your refrigerator and order a new switch either from the manufacturer or from the place you bought it. Once you have the new switch, unplug the refrigerator, take a flat head screw driver and gently pry the switch from the interior face, pull the two wires off and replace the old switch with the new. The switch is very inexpensive and very easy to replace. Calling a service technician out to do this could cost you more than you expect. If you are not very "mechanicaly enclinded" then just order the switch and have a brother, neihbor, or someone that is mechanicaly savy come over and fix it for you. It should not even take 5 minutes. ;-)

If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out ACMEHowTo.com for troubleshooting the defroster problem.
There is a small duct between the freezer and refrigerator side if this is blocked the frig side won't cool.

Ice under freezer drawer


Hi, Check in the back rear of the freezer and se if you have ice built up. MOST cases the defrost drain gets plugged behind the rear freezer wall under the evaporator.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Tried to replace the filter and after that the upp


I don't think replacing the filter had anything to do with your problem.  If the ice maker is working then the freezer is OK since they have the same cooling source.  I had the same problem with this model refrigerator six months after I got it (in 2/2007).  The cooling in the refrigerator section failed.  The refrigerator fan and the air duct as well as the mother board were replaced.  A year later the ice-maker fan froze up. It and the housing were replaced with improved models.  The mother board was also replaced again due to software changes related to the ice maker.  This model is also part of an Energy Star/LG case agreement to modify the circuits and provide a lifetime annual rebate payment.  Check it out and register on the LG web site.

LG French Door Refrigerator 3 door - Smoke out of Door Panel


Take out the freezer bins and look at the very rear of the freezer compartment. This is where your ice maker fan is. If it is caked with ice you have to defrost it. It's a pain, but it fixed my problem.

Frigidaire refrigerator is warm on top of frig and freezer but fine on the bottom of both.


i suspect the fan is not working. take the back panel off inside the freezer and check that the fan is free to rotate, check for continuity thro the fan motor and check you have power to the fan

Auot defrost problem?


cleaning the condensor is nothing to do with evaporator freezing up. keep an eye on it - you may have a problem with the defrost cycle. problem can also happen if freezer door has been left open
