Freezer works but fridge dosen't

I have an LG model LBN22515st and I noticed that the fridge wasn't cooling properly. However, the freezer was working fine. I saw there was quite a bit of frost/ice on the back of the freezer. So, I took everything out unplugged it and let it defrost. In addition, I looked behind the unit and it was FULL of dust. I cleaned everything out behind the back panel. I plugged it back in and when I let it sit for 8 hours the fridge was still not cold but the freezer was. Can anyone tell me what part I need ? ?

SOURCE: Freezer works fine refridgerator does not

anan, I think your display is giving you a code on these LG. See if you can find the tech sheet behind the toe panel. On your display panel from memory, 3 led's lit from the left means a failed defrost thermistor. This could be the reason you are frosting up and restricting the air flow. There is a main board in back that you can ohm out the thermistors. Connector 4, the two bright orange wires #5 and 6, should ohm at 19K ohms at 50 degrees. Now Im doing this from memory, if you can find your tech sheet, it will give you precise information. Catriver.

6343ed3.jpg The problem is ice build up on the back wall. The noise you hear is the fan blades hitting the ice. On the back wall water gets trapped, it then builds up over time, and a big ball of ice forms and blocks the fan. Take off the back wall, defrost the build up and cut the insulation off as above. The water will no longer get trapped and the problem will not come back.

I had the same problem. LG came and fixed it in about an hour. Replaced the circuit board with an updated one and swapped out some sensor. Seems to work now and it was all under the 2 year warranty.

SOURCE: Refrigerator LG Model GR-T452G freezer works but

Locate your defrost timer, they are either in the buttom front of the refrigerator, in back of the refrigerator, or inside compartment behind the plastic covers. On the defrost timer there is a slot were it can be turned using a screwdriver, or there is a round window were you can see it running.when you turn this dial and it clicks, you should now go into defrost. with all the ice build up in your evaporator you should hear the ice cracking indicating that the heaters are working, if not you might have open defrost heaters.

SOURCE: LG Refrigerator has no cold air for fridge but freezer works fine

Sounds like the freezer fan(FF)is wearing out, This problem is very hard to diagnose because the fan spins but not fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and refrigerator. This repair costs parts and labor around $300.00

Freezer to cold refrigerator not cold enough


sounds like your defrost timer is not working properly . Most fridge/freezers the fridge gets cooled from the cool air from the freezer . But when the defrost timer is not working properly the section between the fridge and freezer freezes up and hence doesnt allow the flow of cool air into the fridge. The defrost timer can be easily replaced.

Brand new refrigerator not cooling


ok what he was trying to say is that the freezer does all the cooling for both sides as nothing in the fride side cools and in order for the fridge to reach its proper temp the freezer should run any where between -0 to-10 then the fan in the freezer draw-es air from the fridge and cools it and circulates to the fridge now i need to know a few things is the compressor running is the freezer fan running do you see any frost on the back wall of the freezer section is the fan running in the back that's near the compressor to cool the condenser coils then i can better advise pleas hold my rating till we are done where did you purchase the unit

Fridge not cooling


evidently the fan that runs in the freezer and blows air into the main fridge has a circuit issue or the fan is frozen, but if the bulb does not work then its a circuit issue. likely on the same circuit as fan.

Fridge and Freezer losing cooling


we bought a f&p fridge freezer and in summer noticed it wasn't cooling and the freezer wasn't freezing, when the service guy came out he noticed our ducted air con was blowing onto the fridge, once we had redirected the air con outlet the fridge started working as normal, apparently f&p's work on air being convected around the cabinet of the fridge and air blowing on the fridge can effect the temperature of the convected air. hope this helps you or someone
