LG LFX25960ST control panel is dead

We have owned our LG for almost a year and a half now. When we first got it there was a problem with the ice maker. They replaced the whole door and control panel. Since then everything has been working, but every once in a while all the lights on the control panel would light up. You were not able to do anything while it was like that. Problem would not last for more then a few hours. The other night the control panel died all together. I have tried unplugging it and plugging it back in, but that does not help. Has any one else had the same problem or anything like this?

SOURCE: LG refrigerator french door icemaker not working

The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

The error codes are listed in the service manual (p. 32) at the address below:

"Er dH" seems to be a defroster issue.

Could be an open circuit to the ice tray sensor. This is the wire under the ice tray. It is flexed during each cycle and can fatigue easily. I found this condition on a three year old unit. A simple solder repair and heat shrink tube corrected the problem.

Error code is 1F - the fan has stopped working


My 2 year old LG LFX23961ST refrigerator started showing error code Er IF. In searching help here,
I found out it meant the problem was with the Ice maker Fan. When I checked the ports where the cold air blows into the Ice maker compartment, there was no cold air coming out (you have to hold the door switch in to turn on the fan). I removed the ice maker module (two screws) and unplugged it. When I closed the door, the fan started running, but was making a rattling noise. I suspected ice build up.
Emptying out the freezer compartment, I pulled the rear cover of the compartment off and found what I had suspected. Cleaned out the ice, put everything back together and Voila! Everything working again.
As I write this, I can hear ice dropping into the ice holding tray. Not sure yet why the whole ice blockage thing happened though. Will keep an eye on it. It's been several hours since the repair and no issues. All seems well. It's not rocket science. If you can use a screwdriver, you can fix it too.

Ice maker not working. Have replaced the Ice Maker and still not working. Is there a fuse for the ice maker controller or reset button? I have the Whirlpool Conquest Gold Series between 8 and 10 years...


Roger... this is going to sound way to simple. The ice maker power is cut off by the door switch. Check the door switch. 1/2 of the switch powers the light and the other half powers the ice maker when the light is off. That stupid little door switch has tripped me up several times and I work on them!!! There is one locking tab on ONE side of the (usually white door switch to pop it out of the chassis. It will have 3 terminals on it. One is a common wire, one powers the light (door open / plunger extended) and the other one powers the ice maker (door closed / plunger depressed)

Don't buy a controller yet!!!!

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Strange noise when doors are closed


Is it the Kenmore French Door model made by by LG?  I have the similar LG refrigerator since 2/2007 and have had several problems with it.  The sound you hear may be  a fan motor that is failing or freezing up.  The noise will stop when you open the doors because that shuts off the fan motors. In the last two years I have had the refrigerator fan, the air channel duct, the mother board, the ice maker fan, the ice maker duct and the mother board (again) replaced (under warranty, fortunately).  After the first service call I installed a power surge protector since a component on the mother board was fried.  I think the second mother board replacement was due to a software change related to the ice maker issue.  There is also a case related to LG Energy Star ratings (that includes the Kenmore made by LG) that you can register for that is supposed to make free modifications and an ongoing rebate payment for as long as you own the refrigerator.  I found an LG service manual PDF on line (search by model number) that has diagnostic codes and test procedures that is very helpful when I need to troubleshoot and communicate with the repair shop.

Tried to replace the filter and after that the upp


I don't think replacing the filter had anything to do with your problem.  If the ice maker is working then the freezer is OK since they have the same cooling source.  I had the same problem with this model refrigerator six months after I got it (in 2/2007).  The cooling in the refrigerator section failed.  The refrigerator fan and the air duct as well as the mother board were replaced.  A year later the ice-maker fan froze up. It and the housing were replaced with improved models.  The mother board was also replaced again due to software changes related to the ice maker.  This model is also part of an Energy Star/LG case agreement to modify the circuits and provide a lifetime annual rebate payment.  Check it out and register on the LG web site.

Roaring sound


I have had the same issues. I have owned my LFX25960 for 18 months. All the cooling, noise, and condensation problems are related to 2 fans. One for the freezer/refrigerator compartments and One for the Ice Maker. The fans, apparently, are not sufficient to move enough air through the coils located behind a plastic panel in the freezer compartment. The part numbers for my fans are 1. Ice Maker 4681JB1029E and Refrig/Freezer 4681JK1004E. It is not impossible, but fairly difficult to replace them yourself. You have to remove the large slide out freezer drawer and glides. Then work the back freezer panel loose from the bottom. Be careful not to break it. It is plastic.
Routine maintenance: Pull the refrig out from the wall and blow-out the coils and fan located on the lower right rear. You might find it easier to do this by removing the cover on the lower, back of the refrig.

Ice Maker Stopped working


Hello, I don't know if this will help because the model I have is a 106.565(32)400. I have had my ice maker stop working many times because the fill tube was iced up. After about the 8th or 9th time that it did this I decided that I had to find a solution. What I came up with was that the door in front of the ice maker was keeping the tube too cold and making it freeze up. I removed the door to see if was correct. It never froze up again but the ice would fall out sometimes if you had the door open and it was in the dumping cycle. Then I drilled several 1/2" holes in the ice maker door and reinstalled it. I have had no more problems for over a year.
