commonly what you will find on that model is the main control board on the back of the unit is the source of your issue, it begins like a computer virus where the unit will render the water in the door feature useless, next goes the ice delivery sys, then the unit does not defrost properly causing cooling issues. But before running out and getting a new control board go by this check list first: 1) make sure your ice bucket is properly seeded, 2) make sure the ice in the bottom of the bucket is not melted together if so empty good ice in seperate container and put back in freezer quickly to avoid melting then run hot water in ice bucket to melt remaining bad ice afterwards completely dry ice bucket and put good ice back in and see if it works properly, 3) make sure the auger mtr is not seized due to door being left open and humidity freezing in mtr gear.
This could be because the ice is clumped in the ice bin. When the automatic defrost cycle
occurs, heat is transferred to the freezer area. This can cause the cubes to melt
slightly and refreeze back together. You can take the bin out and give it a good
shake, or simply discard the cubes and start over with a fresh batch of ice cubes.
By increasing the amount of food in the freezer compartment, you may be able to buffer
the heat that comes from the defrost cycle and avoid clumping issues.
If you have a large ice bin and hardly use any ice, it is possible
that the cubes have gotten stuck together just from the weight of the
cubes on top of others.

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.
you don't mention a model or type of icemaker, but here is what I have done in the past. Sometimes the ice melts together (door left open, etc). Take out all your ice and put into an ice chest, making sure that any large pieces are discarded or used elsewhere. Clean out any ice or pieces on the ice feeder screw or arm. Then close the door and make sure the screw it is rotating without any ice in it. If all is OK, then put the ice back in and that should solve the problem. Good luck.
The fan that moves air into the fresh food compartment is in the freezer. If you open the freezer door and hear the fan, then you know it's ok. Gaining access to the fan motor requires removal of the freezer door, glides, and interior back cover. The door track system utilizes a rack and pinion type design, and if it's not put back together properly, the door will not close and seal.
If the fan is running, there is a motorized damper (flap) in the top rear of the fresh food compartment. If this damper is not opening as it should, the compartment will be warm.
The most common issue for you symptom is a defrost system component failure. Look on th interior back wall of your freezer for a build up of frost or ice. If this is the case, air flow is restricted because the evaporator col ice blocked with frost and ice. This repair also requires the removal of the door, glides, and evaporator cover. If you have any doubts of your ability to get the parts put back correctly, you should defer repairs to a qualified appliance service technician.
I removed the freezer drawers removed back panel inside the freezer,and discovered that ice had built up around the vent which cools the fridge compartment once I melted this using a hair dryer put it back together and the fridge compartment works fine.
Hello there. Yes. Open up the water filter compartment and make sure the water is flowing there. Right now it is airlocked. Get the water flowing and put it back together. If it still doesn't flow, repeat the process
try forcing the cycle by manually triggering the cycle a few times. Sometimes you can detach the trip arm or turn the tray by hand by disconnecting it from the gear. There may have been a switch bumped to turn it off or the switch somehow jammed. Maybe check for freeze-up. If there is water in it, it's going somewhere.
check your freezer door see if it (ajar) what you can do if you can unplug unit clar drain with hot water then get apiece of shave wire hook on the defrost heater and put in drain line 1/8 in the drain line put back wall back together and plug unit in
