Fridge is leaking water

The proper "name" of the fridge is: LG GR-S642AQ IceBeam Smart Fridge. It is a563 Litre fridge, with the freezer compartment on top of the fridge. About a month ago water just started appearing spontaneously around the door of the fridge. I've owned it for about 5 years, and it has never done this before.

SOURCE: leaking freezer into fridge

Hi, What has happened is that the drain hole in the freezer has frozen up and the defrost water is dripping into the fresh food area.
Remove the floor panel and the rear fan cover in the freezer and you see the ice that is blocking the drain.
Be carefull when removing the ice. DO NOT use a sharp object. The best way is to use a hair dryer.
Once you locate the drain hole, you will need to melt the ice down in the drain hole too. For this, you can use the hair dryer or poor a few glasses of hot water (sopping up the water between each glass).
What you will need to do after the drain is open is to put an after market drain heat transfer kit on to prevent this from reaccuring.
Please let me know if this is the case and I can get you the right part# or even send you the part.

Your defrost thermostat is broken and needs to be replaced. Here is a link.. your freezer is located differently but you can still use this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQS3pNQFXAo&feature=related

Water on floor


I had this problem with our 2 door frost-free LG fridge (model GR-B207EC). Perhaps you also notice a regular ice buildup in the bottom of the freezer compartment?

My solution was to switch off the fridge and unplug it from the wall, unload the freezer compartment and remove the white plastic back panel inside the freezer compartment. The panel has arrows marked around the edges where the catches are that hold it in place. Carefully flex out the panel at the catches using a large flat blade screwdriver if necessary. Ice buildup can make removal of this panel more difficult.

Behind this back panel is a condenser, under which is a silver tray, which is designed to catch the drops which fall from the condensor (this is the 'frost-free' part of the fridge). I found mine solidly frozen with ice and used a low-heat setting on a heat gun to melt the ice. In the absence of a heat gun a hair dryer will work fine, but don't melt the plastic components of the fridge. (It is also unadvisable to chip away ice with a knife of other sharp implement as you can easily slip and damage yourself or the fridge).

After fully defrosting the tray (this will take some time), including the drain hole in the base of the tray (pour a small amount of warm water in the tray and make sure it drains readily), reassemble the fridge components and restock your fridge. Remember to plug it back in and switch it on.

No more water leaks.

As an alternative to this fix ... if you have the luxury of being able to transfer the contents of your fridge to another fridge and not have to use the leaky one for a while ... empty the fridge and freezer, unplug it from the wall, leave the doors open for a week in a warm location. I didn't use this method but I reckon a week would be long enough to defrost the ice buildup behind the back panel of the freezer and allow the water to drain, yielding the same result.

Lg fridge freezer model gr-s352gca fault


Buy another brand. LG are cheap and nasty when it comes to whitegoods even though the price tag is still up there. I have done nothing but research for my next fridge and i might go with the same brand as i have had for the past ten years and have not had a single problem.(it is definately not a LG of Samsung or one of these other brands that have all the advertising and have only been around for a little while)
