SOURCE: ge gss22jfmcww side by side refrigerator warm

yeah if the fan does not work when you press the light switch thats the cause for the temperature proble, because the low temperature is not circulating stays just in one palce and yes you can replace just the fan get the manual from GE to see how to do it

SOURCE: Evaporator fan stops working due to ice buildup around fan.

you need a drain tube heater.it is like a chain fence tie made from alluminum,you can actually use the fence ties,wrap one side around defrost heater and stick the other side in drain.that will prevent it from happening again

SOURCE: fan runs constantly, freezer ice melting, bottom drawer in refrig

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    SOURCE: Our 3 yr old LG Model LFC25760SW French door

    Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


    Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
    Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

    No power. How do I replace main board?


    I was house sitting for my friend and her LG refrigerator all of a sudden died. Model: LBC22520SW.
    I googled for this problem and found a guy who repaired his frig that had a similar problem and it turned out to be a burnt out fuse: (
    http://thisdoesnotcompute.org/2013/04/21/fixing-a-completely-dead-lg-refrigerator/)
    since the fuse was soldered onto the motherboard, I had to ask a techie friend to help (well, he's an over qualified techie -- actually a retired aeronautic engineer); but once we replaced the fuse, the refrigerator went back to work.
    Cost of repair: $6.25 for the fuse, and $0.23 for the soldering wire (he used a high grade copper wire) vs. possible $300 for an "official" repair.

    LG refrigerator Ice build up in the bottom freezer


    Check the seal in the freezer, if it is leaking outside moisture can get in as well as cause things to defrost near the leak. Also make sure the contents aren't blocking the door to where the seal is leaking. If this is all OK then perhaps the fan units fan is not pulling the moisture out. It does tend to build up in most freezers a bit anyway. also

    A broken fan blade can cause a noisy motor. or a buildup of ice can cause some noise. If thes aren't the case you will need to have the fan motor replaced.

    Buzzing sound


    If noise stops when you open the door, you may have a noisy fan (or could have ice build up, causing fan blade to hit ice and cause noise). I gather it is a frost-free model ie has a fan in the freezer compartment. If noise is caused by fan hitting ice build up, you may have a problem with the auto defrost system, as you should not get ice build up in a frost free.
    Noise stops when you open door because fan turns off when door is opened.

    Error codes FF and FI


    The freezer fan is a known problem - I just had mine replaced. I was told that there is a newer motor part that has a better sealed bearing. I paid approx $80 part + labor.

    Re: the ER FF - that is directly related to the freezer fan. I also had the ice maker circuit board replaced as part of the LG recall and they also fixed things (w/o me asking) like seals, door latches, light relay switch (reports of fires) and it seems like it's working. good luck.

    Fan begins to make noise - then fridge stops.


    You have a defrost system failure and needs to be checked.

    You can manually defrost for a temp fix. Turn it off, take everything out of the freezer, use a hairdryer to warm the back wall, 20-30 min, put everything back, turn it back on and you should be good for a couple of days.
