Our LG refrigerator wasn't cooling either. With ours it turned out to be that the light wasn't turning off when the door was closed! It seemed unbelievable at first, but the heat from the light bulbs was heating the whole refrigerator section to just about the same temp as the outside room. Here's the key, 'though. If this is the case, the fridge section is warm, but the freezer is cold.

    Did u let it set for aleast 24hrs. after u tipped in on its side??

    If not you have a good change u plugged up the system... with refigerator running...

    u should have a light layer of frost across all the tubes in evaputator... after running for 1/2 hr. or less IF NOT You propley have a plugged system from not letting it stand for at least 24hrs after been on its side...

    did you lay in down on its side or just tip it some?

  • Mike Johnson
    Mike Johnson Sep 13, 2007

    This is going to be hard to diagnosis, For one u dont know for sure IF it was in good working order when u got it... Then laying it on its side is a good way to plug the system up.

    One way is to leave plugged in over night and see if it buids up a ice ball in one spot just as in enters the evap...

    If experinced enough u can feel the lines in back before filter and after to feel difference in temp to help locate a block... filter and ...capalary tube.. small thin tube coming from filter ... capalary tube and filter are most likey places where could be plugged....

    How old is this refrigerator???
    Good chance there was something wrong with it or why did they get another one?

    Plugged and low or out of refrigerant is very simular semtoms of the problem u have.

    Either way your looking at a major job...

  • Mike Johnson
    Mike Johnson Sep 13, 2007

    For a experience repair man.. Doing these kinds of repairs...I would say u maybe had a chance to save it... IF its plugged, You would have to a at least install a tap valve, change the filter, Vacuum system and recharge.

    If Low on refrigerant...Depending on the leak?
    suction side or pressure, fixing leak would be about the same as above.... If would have to be out of refrigerant or plugged completely not to frost evap at ALL. Which means probley air in system If out of refrigerant.

    I believe you would be better of spending your money on another refrigerator.

    You never said how Old or what Model this frig. is?

  • Mike Johnson
    Mike Johnson Sep 13, 2007

    Well Number 1 Your not licensed to replace or add refrigerant in refrigeration systems.. if you were you woulnt be asking HOW and I could possibley be lible for giving you instruction....

    If you have worked on auto. a/c systems you would know it goes in the same side. There should be info on the model # Tag giveing u the specks u need on how much it holds.

    Do u even Know what type of refrigerant it takes?

RF265AARSXAC The freezer is not freezing.


looks as evaporator fan is working. have you ever clean condensor under the fridge. possibility it is pluged with dust and not allowing compressor to cool down.
Also check the fan at the back of the fridge beside the compressor. see if it is working

Unit runs but does not cool at all,could it need freon?


Hello
Could be a few things.Usually low freon will cause cooling to stop.
Also a bad compressor will do the same thing.
Check that the condensor unit outside is running,fan turning and you should hear the compressor running.
Check any circut breakers and fuses for being blown or off also.

The outside unit also may need to be cleaned,do this with a water hose and a product called simple green.Spray the simple green on the fins leave on for 5 min then rinse with a hose and water.

Outside fan not running, inside unit running fine. Compressor was running this morning, but no longer. Replaced fan motor, turned power back on, now fan or compressor not running. What else can be checked?


Hi,
There may be a manual reset high limit... look for a red button on a round part hooked to the small copper line and push it in hard...
Also the compressor may have kicked the overload and needs a few hours to cool and it reset, that is interanl insdie the compressor.
Contactor may also have went bad...

Refrigerator freezer not cooling or freezing took off back cover. fan operates. compressor is hot, when pluged in humming noise then drops out.


. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Ge window a/c blows cool air for a few seconds then stops cooling


Its Most Likely Lost Its Freon Or The Compressor Seals Are No Good When The Unit Is On See If You Hear A Whirling Sound Alot Like Your Fridge. Put Your Hand On The Compressor To See If Its Vibrating ( Looks Like A Metal Ball) If It Is Have A Ac Repair Place Check The Freon To See If It Has Run Out Or Is Low. If It Doesn't Feel Like Its Running Have Them Check The Compressor For You. Cooling System Components Should Not Be Serviced By Anyone Who Has Not Been Properly Trained To Deal With Freon.

Not Cooling


Yes, the compressor might not be running. Possibly a bad run capacitor or maybe burnt wires on the contactor or compressor flags.

Refrigerator problem


3 most common things that cause this are a defrost problem (will notice frost build up on back freezer panel), bad evaporator fan motor (should hear fan running in the freezer), or bad damper (vent to the fridge section). If no frost and fan is running check for air flow out of the vent. It should be at the top of the fridge section.
