SOURCE: Refrigerator Lights Stayed on, Melted Plastic and Stopped Cooling

The control board relay switch for the light bulb stuck in the on position and needs to be replaced along with the light cover and housing.  There is also a replacement light harness that has a high limit switch to shut off the lights if this happens again.  LG knows about this problem and if you call LG customer service, they will grant a one time warranty extension to take care of this problem.

SOURCE: Refrigerator Lights Stayed on, Melted Plastic and Stopped Cooling

I had the same problem and fixed it by replacing the Main PC board mounted on the rear of of the refirgerator, as rstynls pointed out. Part number is 6871JB1423N, available from Sears parts direct for around $100. I see it's also on eBay for about $80.

Naturally you want to replace any melted parts like the lens shround and cover if needed, but I didn't replace the socket assembly or reflector even the socket assembly was slightly discolored. I don't see how a new socket assembly could incorporate a temperature sensor since that would require there being a wire run for it already in place, unless the original units had the wire there but it just wasn't used. Even so, if you have to rely on the temperature sensor to shut off the light, you have a problem to fix anyway, although in theory it may prevent a fire hazard.

SOURCE: inside of door when you open lg refrigerator is very hot

I suspect you are talking about the area between the doors. Refrigerators use a loop off the compressor to warm this area to prevent condensation from forming there. Older refrigerators sometimes used an electric heater there, but of course that increases energy consumption. You will notice that the area is much warmer when the compressor is running. All this is normal, and saving you energy.

No ice

First check to see if the ice maker is operating. you can take the face plate off and observe if the gears are turning. The next thing to check is the water solenoid. This operates after the ice maker rotates to a certain degree, pushing on a micro switch that sends power to the solenoid (valve) that opens and allows water to flow into the ice maker basin If this solenoid is working you will hear a loud click. Next, check to see if the water in the inflow pipe is not frozen, by disconnecting the refrigerator AC power. Get a hair dryer and play the heat output onto a small plastic pipe that dumps into the back of the ice maker. This pipe sometimes becomes frozen with water ice and will not allow the water to flow into the ice maker. Mine has done this twice over the 12 tears I have had the refrigerator.

I can hear a beep every once and awhile. When I open the frig, sometimes the light is out, but the refrigerator is operating. I changed the filter and nothing else seems to be wrong.

Is this a door alarm? ARe you sure the temperatures are good? or are they sort of ok, indicating it is getting warmer. the filter is only for the ice maker and the water dispenser.

Interior light bulbs stay on?

There is a switch on the inside of your frige that has gone bad. The switch is a slide type switch so when you open or close the door it makes the switch slide in and out, making the light come on and off. You need to write down the make and model # of your refrigerator and order a new switch either from the manufacturer or from the place you bought it. Once you have the new switch, unplug the refrigerator, take a flat head screw driver and gently pry the switch from the interior face, pull the two wires off and replace the old switch with the new. The switch is very inexpensive and very easy to replace. Calling a service technician out to do this could cost you more than you expect. If you are not very "mechanicaly enclinded" then just order the switch and have a brother, neihbor, or someone that is mechanicaly savy come over and fix it for you. It should not even take 5 minutes. ;-)

Bottom freezer door opens when top door is open and then closed

the door pops open because freezer and frig. are connected together via duct. air pressure builds when you swing ref door closed. apply a small amount of vasoline to the surface of the hinge side of both gaskets. this will aid in door closure. also the unit may be not level
