Question about LG LRBN20510WW Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
My bottom freezer works fine but the refridgerator does not cool in the fresh food area. I looked at some solutions but none of them are helping. I took the back internal panel in the freezer out. Saw ice formed on the coils. Removed the ice although it was not stopping the fan from working. Saw the fan works fine when doors are shut. But funny thing is, if the freezer door is open and I close the switch with my hand I see some cold air coming from the vents in the fridge section. But the moment I close the freezer door the cool air stops. I have checked that the circulation fan works fine. I have tried disconnecting the fridge for 2 hours and also tried putting boiled water in a container in the freezer to remove condensation from the coils. Any more suggestions?
Anan, I think your display is giving you a code on these LG. See if you can find the tech sheet behind the toe panel. On your display panel from memory, 3 led's lit from the left means a failed defrost thermistor. This could be the reason you are frosting up and restricting the air flow. There is a main board in back that you can ohm out the thermistors. Connector 4, the two bright orange wires #5 and 6, should ohm at 19K ohms at 50 degrees. Now Im doing this from memory, if you can find your tech sheet, it will give you precise information. Catriver.

Problem may be that the return vent from freezer to fridge is blocked with ice. best solution is to switch off for 24 hours with doors open. 2 hours may not be long enough to clear this blockage
