Question about LG LSC26905TT Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Fridge turned off

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.

Thank you

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.

Kenmore 795 freezer on top. Freezer working, temp lights on in fridge, but fridge not cooling and lamp out as well.


If the freezer is located above the fridge, the air from the freezer drops into the fridge to create the cooling in the fridge. So what I would look for is a blocked vent from the freezer to the fridge, which is usually located on the top and or back of the fridge inside of cores. You can get a frost or ice build up in there and block the air flow to the fridge, that is usuall the problem. I would also heck the dial for temp control in the fridge, I know my kids have changed it before on me.

Where is the reset on my refidgerator wont get cold enough kid left it open


Red light on for High Freezer Temperature Warning
or freezer not cooling, but fridge is and a lot of noise from compressor.
Also, fridge drain hole blocked, water in bottom of fridge.


This is a common fault in Hotpoint Fridge Freezers and can also happen if the door has been left open or has been a power cut.

1. Turn off fridge freezer, or at least turn down the freezer temp to minimum, though not ideal.
2. Open freezer door and remove all drawers.
3. Remove the back panel on the inside of the freezer. This is held in place with 4 screws, which might be 6mm hex head or star allen head. Pull the panel out.
4. Behind where the panel was, there is a cooling element for cooling, pipes, and below this a temperature sensor. If the fridge freezer is not switched off, then fold together a few layers of tinfoil and wrap around the sensor.
5. Use a hairdryer to slowly melt the ice. Melt it around areas where it appears to be hanging on, such as the corners of the cooling element or bolts, as well as any thin sections below the main block of ice around the cooling element, which will be supporting the main block. Use a plastic ice scraper to remove ice but not near pipes or sensor.
Warning: Be careful using electrics around water & melting ice & drips.
6. Below the cooling element, there is a drip channel & drain hole. If this hole is full of ice, pour a small amound of warm water down, leave for 10 seconds and pour a bit more until clear.
In the fridge, clear the drain hole in the same way.
Warning: Do not pour a lot of water down, as this water drains onto a tray above the hot compressor at the rear of the fridge freezer to be evaporated by the heat of the compressor and the tray will only hold a small amount.
7. When all ice is removed, dry all moisture. Put the shelves back. Close door. Turn on fridge freezer. Turn up the freezer temperature to your normal setting. Turn on fast freeze if available. After 1 hour, check with a thermometer. It should be cold enough after 1 or 2 hours.

When a refrigerator door is left open the freezer will continue to run to keep it cold and since it can't cool an open area it will freeze up on the inside, to resolve this you will need to unplug the fridge and open the freezer door and allow the freezer to thaw completely, once it is thawed you can plug it back in and everything should go back to normal after a 24 hour period

This is a drawback of most mini-fridges. Start by defrosting everything. Then fill ice cube trays with water and keep lowering the setting until the water freezes. Just go a little lower, no more. Fridge should not freeze food. If the fridge stays closed all the time food will freeze. Also if the freezer element gets ice buildup it must be defrosted. Not automatic like home fridge. Most kids today weren't born when the last fridges that had to be defrosted were in service.

Both Fridge and Freezer quit working properly at the same time.


I will need the model number as shown in photo below where the locations are most likely to be. While I am waiting I am going to go over some models like yours to see what may possibly be wrong.

Fridge smell


check the pipes at the back of the fridge, it could be that one of the pipes has a crack and is leaking gas or oil. If not check the inside of the fride for a brown oily residue. This indicates a leak. Don't turn the fridge back on becasue if the oil and gas mix then the fridge will no longer be usable. If you find either of these get an engineer to fix the problem.
