Question about LG LFC25760TT Titanium Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice maker stopped working after about 6 months

Called LG. Helpful--I defrosted for about 45 minutes with hot towels on top of ice maker and arm began to lift a little, but still no ice cubes. Arm had stopped lifting entirely before. No filter goes to this ice maker. It is in the bottom freezer on the left side. No water for drinking in this model. what else can i do to fix it? Do i really need to replace it? How much and best place to get an ice maker, and what can i do to protect the ice maker from doing this again?

Sounds like the ice maker heater (which releases the cubes) is not working. Individual parts are not available. The entire ice maker must be replaced, but since you say it is only 6 months old, it would be covered under the factory warranty.

Ice maker quit working


Good Afternoon Kevin,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS26R4A, is not making ice. There are a couple of things you can check. First, check the wire signal arm to make sure it is in the "down" or ON position. The ice maker turns off automatically when the ice container becomes full. To stop the ice maker, lift the wire signal arm until it clicks, and locks in the "up" or OFF position. Second, check to see if the water dispenser is dispensing. You might need to change your water filter. It's recommended you change it every 6-8 months. The other thing if your appliance is not dispensing water is there might be a kink in the hose or maybe the water supply has been cut off. Hope this has been helpful.

-Best Regards-

Freezer door started dripping water when opened and item in freezer are defrosting. Also refrigerator not staying cool. Help


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

In the fresh food compartment center overhead within about 6 inches of the front of the unit there is a circular hole. Inside that hole you will see a dial with 2 tabs on it. Use your thumb or a squared off utensil and rotate the tabbed dial slowly until you hear an audible "CLICK" The refrigerator should stop running and the defrost cycle begins.

After 45 minutes (+ or - 10 mins) the compressor should start again. Once the compressor starts, check both the evaporator fan in the freezer compartment and the condenser fan in the bottom rear of the unit to make sure they are turning at full speed.

If the compressor does NOT after 90 minutes re-start, rotate the defrost timer tabs of the dial in the overhead of the fresh food compartment until you hear it start again. The fact that the compressor did not start in under 90 minutes indicates a defrost circuit problem.

A slow running evaporator fan or condenser fan will cause poor cooling. Also in the back of the unit, check the right side of the condenser coils for lint / hair build up. If it is blocked the front outside chassis of the freezer section will be very warm almost hot to the touch. Clean as needed with a vacuum if you do find any lint buildup.

Once more thing is to check the ice maker. Quickly touch the bottom of the ice maker. If it is VERY hot to the touch then there is a problem with the ice maker itself and the mold heater can cause your freezer to warm up and overall unit performance to degrade.

A complete checkout of the ice maker can be found here: http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34

Thanks for using FixYa.

It sounds as if you have an automatic defrost problem.

Icemaker isn't working. Hot water pouring out


Most ice makers do have a defrost element below the ice maker. The problem you described is strange. I would like the model of the refrigerator and brand name. Unplug refrigerator and remove ice maker from freezer compartment now. If water continues to flow you may need the service line that feeds refrigerator turned off until I get your model number. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Stopped making ice


if the water dispenser on the door still works. the first thing to check is to see if the ice maker is running. check that the arm is down. if it is, attach a peace of scotch tape to the arm and to the case of the ice maker.(make sure that it is just barely attached) if the ice maker works, the arm will raise approximately every 45 minutes, dislodging the tape. if not use a voltmeter set to the 12 volt dc range to check that the ice maker is receiving power. if it is, you will need to replace the ice maker (or at least the timer) if the water on the door does not work, then the most likely problem is that the water solenoid valve needs to be replaced.

replacement parts can be found here, good luck :-) http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/

Inoperative Ice Maker


The icemaker stops working because excessive water gets into the control box(where circuit board is housed) through the shaft hole of "finger" and freezes the wheels to turn the "ice-bucket-full detector rod". This stops to send the signal to open water valve.
To fix, remove the icemaker from the wall (need remove two screws - make sure power switch is OFF) and carefully separate the snap-on cable (retangular shape) and a ground cable on the bottom side of the icemaker. (Now you can remove the icemaker out of the refrigerator).
You can open the contol box (need unscrew one and carefully prop it open using a screw driver or a knife. You can unplug color corded snap-on cables for easiness to work (very simple).
You will see ice formed around the plastic gear wheel controlling the "ice-bucket-full detector rod". Remove all ice and dry all the parts in the box and put them back. Make sure all the cable are back to the matching color receptable(only fits in the right place). Connect the cable(rectangular shape) and connect the ground cable. Mount the incemaker on the wall using two screws you removed at first.
Turn the power ON and reset the system by press down the ice cube size selector until the "fingers" make a full cycle. You will see the metal rod moves up and down as system resets. During this cycle the water will be filled into the icemaker.
I believe this icemaker has a design flaw but it's very simple to correct the problem you are experiencing. You do not need much electronic or mechanical knowlege to fix this.
Best wishes
