Question about LG LFD22860 Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have an LG GR-409GUPA Frige Freezer which has recently started being very noisy, not all the time, but periodically when the motor kicks in. Sometimes it stops if you open the freezer door, and sometimes if you move it slightly it calms it down, other times nothing works! It's about 4 years old and i've never had a problem with it before...

Weak motor spring lets motor hit shell on startup due to torque. experiment with Shimming the motor mounts to reduce/eliminate noise.

Has no effect on motor performance/longevity.

Carben,

I have the same problem and I am able to resolve it by defrosting the element which is behind the inside rear panel of the freezer. I use a hair dryer to melt the ice build up. It happbed a couple of times so I know that there is a cause for this which may be the defrost heater but I am not sure how to confirm this. Let me know if you have any ideas.

most likely the evaporator fan is hitting some ice that has formed on the mounting shroud. You will have to defrost the unit by leaving it off over night. Also what contributes to this broblem is the location of the temp sensors. they should be checked that they are in the holders for them and not buried into the foam insulation. There is on in the ref on the top of the liner and one in the freezer. These pop off. remove them from the foam and insert them into the holders. If you can't do this then it may be wise to use a service person to do check it.

SOURCE: frige light on not cooling,freezer fan working but not freezing

Hello there. Let me see if I can assist you.

A refrigerator or freezer that is cooling, but cooling poorly, may have a problem in one of several areas:

Evaporator coils
Condenser
Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt.

Evaporator coils Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils. You can't see these coils without removing a panel on the inside of your freezer. A sure sign that there is a build-up is the presence of any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, floor, or ceiling of the freezer. Such a frost build-up usually indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets.

The refrigerator is supposed to self-defrost approximately four times in every 24 hour period. If one of the components in the self-defrosting system fails, the refrigerator continues to try to cool. Eventually, though, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There may still be a small amount of cooling because the coils are icy, but with no air flow over the coils, cooling in the refrigerator compartment is quite limited.

Here's an inexpensive, though inconvenient, way to determine if the problem is with the self-defrosting system. Remove all of the perishable food from the refrigerator and freezer, turn the thermostat in the refrigerator to Off, and leave the doors open for 24 to 48 hours. (Be sure to have several towels ready in case the melting frost and ice causes the drip pan to overflow). This allows the refrigerator to defrost "manually." When the frost and ice build-up has completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If the refrigerator then cools properly, it indicates a problem with one of three components in the self-defrosting system:

  • The defrost timer

  • The defrost thermostat (also called the bi-metal switch)

  • The defrost heater

If it still does not cool properly, there may be a problem with the refrigerant level or the compressor. You may need to consult with a qualified appliance repair technician to further diagnose the problem

Condenser Self-defrosting refrigerators all have a set of coils and a cooling fan, usually under the refrigerator, that need to be cleaned regularly. If these coils get coated with dust, dirt or lint, the refrigerator may not cool properly. The coils may appear to be a thin, black, wide radiator-like device behind the lower kick-panel. To clean them, disconnect the refrigerator from the power source, use a refrigerator condenser brush (see the Appliance Accessories section) and your vacuum cleaner to clean the coils of any lint, pet hair, etc. You may not be able to get to all of the condenser from the front, it may be necessary to clean the remainder of the condenser from the rear of the refrigerator.

Why does my frige motor turn on when I close the door and off when I open door?


It's designed that way for energy saving purposes. The motor shuts down when the door is open so that it's not producing more cold air to just fly out the door. Then when the door shuts, the cooling mechanism kicks back on again for business as usual.

Noisy pump when we run the dishwasher


Recently had a similar experience. Sounded like grinding noise for a period of time. Then motor stopped. Motor bearings were shot. Had motor replaced under P.S.E.&G. Service contract. This utility company offers appliance contracts for the home. P.S. serviceman indicated they will only do that once for the contract. This is an expensive part. If you don't have access to a contract be ready for 130.00 or more for a new Motor and more to have it installed if you are not handy. Service man removed front kick plate and dropped motor without removing dishwasher.

Lg ldf7932ss growling noise at wash cycle


The LG is known for the main motor bearings (2 small cheap) bearings that are of poor quality and become noisy (growls) after a period of time. I pulled the motor and replaced the Korean bearings with quality German equivalents. This is cheap and solves the problem. (the front bearing closest to the plastic pump is the culprit.

Freezer and frige blowing warm air. The unit is a 6 year old side by side. Is it worth calling a repair man or just replacing? Thank You Oh the motor still runs and I hear a sound as if the compressor...


To start a new check it will be good to shut off the fridge for about 8 hours, Now during this period clean the set and check the thermostat , the compressor relay mounted on it.
When the power is switched the compressor must click and start up, if not check relay and capacitor of the motor.
When the compressor runs for about 2 hours there must be coooling, if not the compressor is faulty or the gas pressure is down.
It must be estimated and decided.

My frige has two handles, and the bottom handle for the frige was loose and came of, how can i get a new handle for my frige. Its a LG Model GR-642QVP Serial No REFER BAR CODE LABEL A.3850JZ0373A


Sounds like you have a UK model LG refrigerator. Go to www.lge.com and from there you can select your region and get the phone numbers to call the UK LG Parts Dept. to purchase a new handle. Hope this helps.

P.S. I work for LG!
