    fan works, but freezer thawed out and fridge is not cold. Do you know what the problem could be. Would I be better off buying a new fridge?

Sound like the start components are weak on the unit. you can get new start components or get a three n one control that repalces the starting components and all that you have to do is wire it up just like the diagram on the bag. or the lem could be low voltage gpoing to the refriger ator. The manufactures reccommend that you never run a refrigerator on a extenstion cord of any kind. It is also a good Idea to take the refrigerator electrical outlet off of any type of GFI receptical of any kind. you don't want to come home to a defrosted mess just because the outlet decided at that Tibme to trip.

How can you tell if the fan needs to be replaced?


Hi McRobbie

The devil in the details here is where the clicking is coming from, and which fan we're talking about. There can be fans circulating air in the freezer or fridge, or blowing a certain amount of freezer air into the fridge (the latter is more or less how the fridge side is usually cooled). There is also a fan that will blow on the compressor to keep it from overheating. What you may need to do is, with the fridge away from the wall and plugged in, come near to the compressor (a black metal object that looks like this
image refrigerator compressor Google Search The clicking can be the system trying to start the compressor. There is usually a bit of gear tied into the compressor that lets it build some juice in a capacitor for the startup to get moving. If the compressor isn't actually starting, then likely as not the fan won't start either, making it a symptom rather than a problem.

Is the fridge cooling now? If so, then the compressor is able to start. If not, the clicking is probably failed compressor starts. Otherwise, there will be the fan right next to it (see about halfway down the page here

The latter page has a good checklist of other diagnostic possibilities.

Neff fridge/freezer has stopped cooling


pull the unit from the wall, remove the bottom back panel , see if the small fan is working ,if the fan is , there's probally alot of dust back there,unplug the fridg. and vacuum the area real good,use a flash light to make sure you get it all, if the fan is not working and the compressor is running the fan is the problem ,the fan keeps the compressor and coils cool so the freon can cool down so the unit works like it should,if the freon is hot ,the air the fridg.will be blowing will be hot. this should fix your problem, and YES its worth fixing.alittle p.m.saves alot of $$$$$$$$$

Fridge question


Sounds like you mad have a bad relay or overload on the compressor. I would also check your condenser fan motor to make sure its running and blowing air on the compressor to cool it. If its not running the compressor may be overheating and shutting off on its overload. If the condenser fan motor is running I would assume that you would need a new relay and overload it will come in a kit. Usually it will make a clicking sound when the compressor is TRYING to start and then shuts off on its overload if the start components are bad.

Fridge and Freezer won't cool.


The evap fan is running - but is your compressor motor running -t his is what i'm concerned about - 82F ? That is very high - this suggests to me there is no cooling AT ALL - only the fans are working - and my gut tells me your compressor is not running AT ALL - I would rule out thermostat since when it kicks in and your evap fans turn on, your compressor should turn on too. If this fridge has electronic controls, have your motherboard / control boards checked, have your compressor checked. If your compressor is running and you can hear its distinctive humming sound, then you have a sealed system problem, a major one :) Have those two things checked.

LG Refrigerator has no cold air for fridge but freezer works fine


Sounds like the freezer fan(FF)is wearing out, This problem is very hard to diagnose because the fan spins but not fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and refrigerator. This repair costs parts and labor around $300.00

Refigerator not cooling and hot to the touch


It sounds a lot like lost charge caused by a leak in your system. If your unit has been moved or improperly cleaned, some part of the pressurized system may be damaged.
Refrigerant (with very small molecules) may leak off over many years but it shouldn't happen in the single digits.
