Does the refrig sound like it is running. if it does not , your problem is more than likely the defrost timer. depending on the age , the timer is sticky.
the timer is in the refrig. normally on the ceiling under the plastic.(on some it is located below the bottom door, mounted to the front grill) on the older models it has a place for you to put a dime & turn the dial . it should turn easily. I have had them turn very hard.
after you turn it , you will hear it turn on. if it does .replace the timer
On some of the newer ones it is electronic.

Frige not cooling numbers not lite for fridge but freezer temp numbers 567 are all lite. unplug and plug in and both temp numbers r on 4 but u go back and fridge number is not lite and freezer is on 567


If you unplug it you must wait for at least 15 minutes before restarting the unit. This goes for any refrigerator so the coolant system can equalize and the compressor will restart.

There are 3 components involved with this error code. The defrost thermistor, The defrost thermostat and the main control board. Most likely you have defrost thermistor or themostat that is open and the compressor will NOT start because the power for the comprssor has been interrupted by the automatic defrost cycle and nothing is telling the unit that it has completed the automatic defrost cycle so the unit does not restart. The thermistor and the thermostat would be #1 on troubleshooting list. The thermistor will have varied resistance 10,000 Ohms and under and the thermostat is supposed to be OPEN / have continuity above 60 deg F and closed below 60 Deg F. .

If you need parts information I need your COMPLETE model number (Not Kenmore elite)
Example would be 110.11112222 (not your model number and all numbers willmost likely be different) I think your model number will start with 795.something because this unit was made by LG.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Refridge compartment warm not cooling


I hope the following helps.

Turn the entire control system off for at least two minutes. This will give the computer module time to reset to factory default. Turn of to desired level after two minutes. Should that not work then there is a problem with the timing relay. They relay is brand specific, meaning take the model number to the parts store for a new one.

Your compressor should be fine. You may also remove the power by unplugging the refrig.

CAUTION: Before removing the relay the power to the fridge must be OFF. Failure to have it in the off postion can cause the new relay to short which can lead to mkore problems. So UNPLUG the fridge, remove the relay, replace the relay and then plug fridge back min. Set control to desired cooling level and wait a couple hours. That should do the trick.. IF not then there is an issue with the processor module.

Warm Fridge


the defrost timer/ board is getting stuck in defrost and when you unplug it and plug it back in it resets the defrost timer/control board. you may need to replace the defrost timer/control board.

Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.
