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.

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.

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.

Use a butter knife and insert it in the slot between the cover and white plastic holder and pull the knife lightly twords you.
Do this on both sides and the cover should come out.
Use 40W bulbs for replacement.
