Question about LG LSC26905TT Side by Side Refrigerator
One of the kids got ice and a second kid went to get ice and the WHOLE fridge was off, no power what so ever.
I checked the braker, was ok. I plugged something else in the plug in and it still works. Unplugged it for awhile also and still nothing.
Bought this LG side -by- side on 07-05-07
Husband did not get the extended warranty, we were living in 2 diff states trying to get moved and he bought it and had a friend get it at new house while we were driving the 2500 miles to new state, stress was huge.
LG said they can't do anything for me and gave me a couple numbers to call. So 18 months later I have to go out and spend all the money again. Very disappointed and will never buy LG again.
It sounds very much like an electrical leak, possibly in the ice maker, has caused a GFI (ground fault interrupter) to trip.
They will trip in ~ 1/2 cycle ( 8 milliseconds) with only a few milliamperes of current flowing from an insulated point that has failed to ground.
Check your breaker box for a GFI on that circuit; they look different than a standard breaker or you may have one in your kitchen (they are required and have been for years) for any circuit near water and one of these can protect multiple duplex outlets.
If it trips again, call LG and tell them you will request a recall through the US government for electrical safety if they don't feel like servicing it. This is not something they can refuse to do; there is an expectation of electrical safety in any appliance and the damned warranty never expires for this.
