    I have the same problem :\ Will try ordering a new sensor pack for the defrost cycle?

  • Anonymous Apr 22, 2008

    To follow up...here's the problem:



    If the control panel just reads on the freezer portion '567', that's a code (at least that's what our repair man told us). It indicates there's a defrosting sensor problem. At first, when the control panel went, I read to unplug the fridge to reset which worked, but only for ~8 hours (as this webpage indicates). THEN, over the weekend, the fridge portion stopped refrigeration (yet the freezer worked...riddle me that, Batman?).



    So, we had to go to the LG Customer Service site to get the name of a LG local service tech (NOTE: they're the ONLY one's that are able to get LG parts...if you call any repair shop, you'll be sorry...they'll come out, charge you for being there then will untimately not be able to help you). So, my LG repair guy said he's seen it before, but not a lot. Anyway, he replaced the defrost sensor and everything seems to be in good working order again. The cost? $22.50 for the part and $135.00 for the labor (~15-30 minutes)...man, I should have THAT job!

Behind the back panel of the freezer section is the evaperator assembly. on the rh side of the evaperator is a sensor pack that is for the defrost cycle. there is a thermo fuse inside of this pack that is open. The fridge goes into an error state if this fuse is open. unplugging the fridge resets the system. the sensor pack will have to be replaced.

Freezer working with slight amount of frost and refrigerator side is hot


This is how I would check your refrig if I came out to do a repair based on your problem .
Pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board . Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it . Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . After about 3 min , look in the freezer , at the bottom , behind the crisper , look for a red glow . If no red glow , unplug the refrig , and reassemble the plug and cover . This no glow , indicates a shorted defrost heater WR51X10055 . It is also advisable to replace the defrost thermostat ( pt. number WR50X10068 ) when replacing the heater . To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The heater , is at the bottom of the coils , held on with 2 screws , and the thermostat , is the 1 " cylinder , with a blue and pink wire going to it , clipped on the top left of the coils .
If you do get a red glow , then the # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp and when to cycle off due to selected temperature .

Top of freezer not freezing and refrigerator not


Dirty coils not likely the problem .
Open the freezer door .( Behind the back panel ( inside the freezer ) is the evaporator fan motor . ) Push in on the freezer door switch , and listen for the fan to come on . Sometimes , the fan will stay on , even if the door is open . Do you hear the fan ? If not , then the main control board , behind the refrig , behind an 8 " X 10 " panel , is probably bad . If you do hear the fan , then you are having a defrost problem . Pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel .
Behind this panel , is the main control board . Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it .

Pull the refrig out , unplug , and on the back , remove the 8 " X 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board . On this board , you will see a blue plug ,with 3 larger wires going to it , which you need to unplug .
You will need a short piece of insulated wire , with both ends stripped about 1/4 inch .
Looking at the plug , you will see : wire1 wire2 space wire3 . With the piece of wire , insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other end into wire3 .
Plug the refrig back in . Looking in the freezer section , behind the crisper , after about 1 min , you should see a " red " glow .
If no red glow , this means your defrost heater AND bimetal need to be replaced . Unplug the refrig , remove jumper wire , and plug the blue receptical , back onto the board . Reinstall the panel .
To replace these , remove the food in the freezer , and remove the inside freezer panel ( 4 screws hold this panel on ) , and the heater is below the coils ( 2 screws ) , and the bimetal is clipped on the top of the coils , a 1 " cylinder , with a pink and blue wire going to it .

GE Model GSS25TGNB CC died


If you do not see frost on the inside rear wall of the freezer , Poll the refrig out from the wall , and remove the back panel covering the compressor . If the compressor is not running , Remove the 8" X 10 " panel , just above the large panel first removed . Unplug the refrig . Remove the control board , and on the other side of the board ( soldered side ) , look just behind the small black boxes ( located on the other side ) and look for a joint which has become unsoldered . Resolder this spot and reinstall the board . Plug the refrig back in , and see if compressor starts . OR , you can replace the control board pt # WR55X10656 .

Pull refrig out from the wall and unplug . Remove the 8" x 10 " panel covering the main control board . On this board , unplug the blue plug with 3 larger wires going to it . The sequence looks like this : wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Use a piece of wire , with both ends stripped about 1/4 " , and insert an end into wire2 and wire3 . Plug refrig back in . Look inside the freezer at the back bottom , and see if you see a red glow . It may take about 30 seconds for the glow to appear . If no glow appears , the defrost heater located at the bottom of the coils ( glass tube ) is probably shorted . Pt # WR51X10042 . Also replace the defrost thermostat Pt # WR50X10068 . To access these parts , the inside freezer panel has to be removed . If you do get a red glow , then the main control board is bad Pt # WR55X10656 .

Refrigerator is not getting cold


Unplug it and let the freezer thaw for a day - there is likely ice buildup between the freezer and refrigertor side - which is not letting cold air get to the refrigerator side. Remove all food from the freezer and the refrigerator, and let the freezer totally defrost (allow 24 hours with the doors open) then plug it in and you should see a noticable difference. If that does not work, the fan could be bad. There are two fans, one in the back of the fridge down low on the outside, and one in the freezer behind a back panel on the inside down about half way. Try the defrosting first which should be the solution, and the easiest fix.

Amana refrigerator warm


Chances are if they are getting cool but not cold-

1) the evaporator fan in the freezer is not running
2) Defrost heater has failed
3) Defrost sensor has failed
4) Defrost timer/refrigerator control has failed.

Check for ice build-up on the back wall of the freezer. If there is ice, unplug or turn the unit off for 6-8 hours with the doors open (put any food in a cooler with ice to maintain). Note water may come out of the refrigerator.
Plug the unit back in or turn it back on, close the doors, and check temperature after a couple of hours of operation. If all OK, you will need to have the above tested, or, if you know how to use a multimeter and can read a schematic/wiring diagram, I can instruct you on how to check the above.
