If it was transported upright you should be able to plug it up right away and allow it to start cooling peyton..

I have a KIC KBF-639ME fridge i have found small ball bearings inside my freezer compartment and outside my fridge. The fridge is less than a year old and is making a funny sound now at times.


it should be still under warranty and steel balls can only come from failed ball bearings ( possible fan motor ) Call in a service technician for a warranty inspection and repair

My kic fridge not getting cold but light working


Check that your temp control is set half way. If still warm.you might have a blockage or a gas leak.

Kenmore Model No. 253.53322302 side-by-side not cold enough. Incidentally, fridge was unplugged in garage last 2 years until plugged in 2 months ago. Fridge stays at 38 F and Freezer at 27 F, so ice...


Since your fridge/freezer has been in storage the gas has settled, did the fridge/freezer get put on its side at any stage during the move?
This could have caused leakage out the breather pipe, have a look at the condenser at the back of the fridge, down low, you will see two hard pipes coming out of the tank, one leads up into the fridge the other doubles over, is open ended and facing downward, this is the breather and gas can escape from this pipe when the appliance is tilted to far over.
Chances are high that you will need to service this appliance.
its a good idea not to turn on immediately after moving. giving the gas time to settle again before turning on.
It could be the door seals need replacing as they can go hard over time when just sitting and no longer form a good seal on the door.

I have a KIC 223l. I moved into my residence yesterday and its not cooling. The moving took 5 min while it was lying down. I immediately switched it on when i got into my room. Its been on for less th


Hiya, u should leave a fridge and freezer after moving it at least 24 hours before switching it on because the gases need to settle. If it has been switched off perhaps you need to check the plug just in case the wires have loosened. hope i was of some help to you kind regards

Put refrigerator in storage for 8 months, doesnt cool now.


Did you switch it on immediately after returning it to your home? If you did the unit has probably burned out because the oil/gas had not yet settled in the compressor after the fridge had been tilted. After a fridge has been moved, it should be allowed to stand for a minimum of three hours before being switched on again.

I own a KIC Fridge the problem is that the door does not closes the rubber does not grip tightly when closing. I have to sometimes lean on the fridge for 5-10 seconds for it to close and it sometimes does...


Hi did anyone get back to you on this? I have a KIC Fridge and it does the same... take out the top door shelf/rack but then you MUST unscrew the light (cause otherwise your light never goes off and your food doesn't stay cold) cause the top shelf/rack in the door switches off the light... anyway... once the top shelf is out, the door will close better.... not sure how else to fix it though...

Plugged new lg LSC27921..how do we turn it on


There is not central power switch fitted to this model, check:
1. All cables are connected at both ends.
2. The wires to the control panel are connected, to check this remove the plastic cove that covers the top hinge of the door with the control panel and make sure that connecters are correct. Of course you should make sure that the fridge is unplugged before you do this.
let me know if that solves your problem.

Also remember to allow your new fridge to settle after moving it before plugging it in as the gas takes up to 12 hours to settle.
