Question about LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator
We purchased our LG LFX25960ST back in 2006 and has worked fine until this most recent problem. Last week my wife opened the fridge door and the plastic bezel that covers the fridge lamps just fell down. When replacing the bezel it would not pop back in place. Upon further inspection we noticed that the bezel and surrounding components have started to melt due to excessive heat. The heat is so intense we detected a burning odor. These are the original lamps that came with the fridge. Has anyone else had this problem. I removed one of the lamps for now just to reduce the heat intensity. Has anyone one out there had a similar problem?
There is a recall for that problem you need to contact LG and they will send a repair kit for your refrig. it should be repaired at no cost but be sure to ask them.

I also have had the lense warp and fall out some time ago. I have an extended warranty and got a new lense. I mentioned this particular problem to a tech recently and he told me that LG has come out with a new lighting unit that no longer uses a timer to shut off the light, but a temperature sensor. I also replaced the lamps with 40 watt appliance lamps (same physical size) as those that came with the refrigerator which are 60 watt according to the tech. My lighting unit has NOT been replaced with the newer temperature controlled rather than timer controlled switch. I don't know when or why my interior lights stayed on long enough to melt the plastic. Since I still have the extended warranty, I may push for having the lighting unit replaced.
