SOURCE: Burnt out relay/overload assembly, compressor won't run.

it can be difficult to get the right one for it, however there are eletronic ones on the market that will do the job.
it could have been caused from the unit cycling off and on to quick, or the compressor drawing to much current
the windings should be tested with a multimeter to see if they are faulty or not

Hello. I looked up your model range and found many service bulletins associated with it. Among those was a RECALL due to burn/fire hazards from the burners not shutting off and the temperature setting can increase unexpectedly. The model years affected were from January 2006 to June 2010. I've attached a pic of the affected serial numbers. You can obtain a free in-home repair by contacting LG at (855) 400-4038, toll free. I hope this helps you!

Not cooling clicking sound refrig compresso and


IT'S MOST LIKELY THE START RELAY/OVERLOAD PROTECTOR ON THE SIDE OF THE COMPRESSOR. UNPLUG UNIT AND PULL START RELAY OFF AND SHAKE. IF SOUNDS LIKE IT'S FULL OF GRAVEL IT'S BAD, OR GET VOLT /OHM METER AND CHECK CONTINUITY BETWEEN THE START AND RUN TERMINALS ON BACK SIDE OF RELAY, WHILE YOUR THERE CHECK CONTINUITY BETWEEN THE BACK SIDE OF OVERLOAD AND WHERE L1 WIRE COMES IN FROM THE HARNESS. IF ALL THAT CHECKS OUT THE COMPRESSOR MIGHT BE BAD OR DRAWING TOO MUCH CURRNET FOR THE FACTORY START DEVICE. YOU DIDN'T NOTE A SERIAL #, SOME OF THOSE MODELS WERE UNDER RECALL FOR THE RELAY/OVERLOAD PROBLEM.
