there is one of two thing that could be going wrong here ; you may have a bad evap fan mtr and control board or yourr damper is not opening properly. i would say you have the later of the two due to the fact the rf is still making ice. one thing that causes this issue is too much weight in the door causing the door to lean and not trigger in door light switch or the switch itself is damaged. the door hinge and camm assembly can be adjusted from the bottow using a standard socket set

The channel in the back were the cool air comes down from the freezer to the fridge may be iced up. Try defrosting the fridge/freezer for much longer than usual, all day if necessary.

Due to the ice still being made , this indicates yout freezer fan is working . The ice maker has to be 5 degrees to work , which also indicates the refrig IS NOT low on refrigerant . May not be pulling enough cold air forcefully enough to send into the refrig section which indicates a defrost problem . The warmer freezer food also indicates that not enough cold air , is dropping to freeze the food except in the lower portion of the freezer .
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 . 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 , when to cycle off , associated with the fan speed also .

LG 620 RW water in fridge below crisper problem.
The issue is most likely a blocked condensate drain line at the back of the freezer. The purpose of the drain line is to take away the water from the end of the defrost cycle.
Task time, approx 2 hours.
Empty out the fridge, let warm up & remove the back panel of the freezer. There is a 3" x 4" snap in door at the upper left corner of the back panel with a round snap in cover. Remove the snap in cover & remove the screw to take out the 3" X 4" panel, gently pull out the back panel from left to right. There is also an elect connector to the fan on the upper right corner, unclip this. The drain is at the back in the centre, it will likley be blocked with 2 or 3" of ice. You can let it melt or sparingly use a hair dryer on it, do not over heat or damage the coil/fin assembly. The fridge will continue to drip water for a day after the drain is cleared if the water has rin inside of it for any period of time.
There is also a fan/control assembly in the refrigerator section held up by 2 screws & snaps. This should be dropped down to ensure there is not ice buildup in the vents to the freezer or water inside it.
Finally, make sure you run warm water down the freezer drain tube to the pan underneath the fridge, this is accessible by taking of the rear compresser cover behine the frigde. Ensure the lower drain line is clear & back on the locater peg.
Of course if you want to do this the easy, & have the time, leave the fridge open, unplugged for 2-3 days & the ice will all melt.
