Check to see if your drain tube is clear. Sometimes it freezes up at the base of the rear cover in these bottom freezers. Causing an ice dam.

SOURCE: Bottom Freezer has ice built up

Possibly the defrost element is faulty, this is located behind a cover in the back of the freezer compartment and is attached to the fins of the evaporator. It also has a defrost limit thermostat which could also be the problem. I presume that the fan is working after you have defrosted the unit?

Check your defrost components. The fan is hitting the frost buildup and will shut off when the door is opened so as to not circulate the warm air. The heater or the timer is not doing a proper defrost cycle.

I have an LG Refrigerator. GR-559FSDR 121T0063 Serial No. 102KRXD00130. It is giving an alarm like the door is open every few seconds. Both lights are off, when you open doors.


Check the freezer doors. Pull the tray out of the top drawer and see if there is ice build-up behind it causing it to not close all the way. I had to defrost my freezer to get rid of it. It also helped the ice fan from icing up stopping.

Contents of Lg fridge freezer gone soft, ice had melted & hasnt renewed ice even after express freeze, it's definitely not at the temperature stated on the control panel


Open the top freezer drawer and look for ice build-up in the back of the freezer compartment preventing the door from closing all the way. If so, you have to defrost it. This is where your ice maker fan is, so it may be ice-bound and that is way the ice is melting.

Water is sitting on top of freezer compartment and leaking out on floor


Make sure that your drawer is aligned properly and that there is no ice build up anywhere. Mine built up some ice in the very back and side somehow, and caused the door not to close tightly which lead to a similar problem. Removing the ice build up cured it.

LG refrigerator Ice build up in the bottom freezer


Check the seal in the freezer, if it is leaking outside moisture can get in as well as cause things to defrost near the leak. Also make sure the contents aren't blocking the door to where the seal is leaking. If this is all OK then perhaps the fan units fan is not pulling the moisture out. It does tend to build up in most freezers a bit anyway. also

I got LG fridge freezer my freezer has ice building and the temp is warm WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM. kclakhani@hotmail.co.uk


your defrost system isnt working and you cant blow cold air thru a solid block of ice,remove the rear panel inside the freezer and check the evaporator coil for this type of ice buildup,they should only have a light frosty coating on them when the units cooling and not defrosting,then either the heating element below the coil is bad,the defrost thermostat on top of the coil is bad or the defrost system isn't getting power to operate

LG Bottom Freezer Frost Issue


It sounds like your defrost controller has gone bad. I have an LFC25760 and had ice build up in the bottom of the freezer such that water would start leaking onto the floor. The ice build up in the bottom of the freezer was due to a failing/bad defrost controller. Behind the back white wall in the freezer compartment exists the cooling fins along with a heating element underneath. Due to moisture that comes into the freezer from opening it, frost/ice builds up on the cooling fins. Thus the defrost controller turns on the heating element to melt the ice/frost off of the fins which then drips into a metal pan which channels the water to a drain hole which drops into the drip pan underneath the fridge next to the fan. The problem is that the defrost controller doesn't keep the heating element on long enough or the cooling cycle comes on too soon thereby freezing the water and plugging up the drain. I had my defrost controller replaced (just outside the warranty period!) and it worked for about 1-month and then same thing happened again. Instead of paying for another defrost controller that would probably not work 100% my serviceman used the old paper-clip trick. He took a paper clip, stretched it out and then wrapped one end around the heating element and placed the other end into the drain hole. Thus when the heating element comes on the paper clip keeps the drain hole warm/hot and prevents the water from freezing. It has been 9 months since this fix and I haven't had any ice pooling in bottom of the freezer.

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.
