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.

You are both right , it could be either problem. could also be a bad fan motor or main board ***'y. if the unit isn't defrosted (check for heavy frost on back wall of Freezer), it is likely the defrost control which is a thermal cutout and Defrost terminator in the same package. raedily available from any LG repair facility. I stock them and can get replacement parts in 1 day.

You have to look at the unit and see what it is telling you. All of this units have error codes, some are in the form of letters and others are through the lights in the display. The most common is to have 567 on. This is telling you that it can't go into defrost. You need to get the control assembly replaced, big name for a thermal fuse. Runs around the $20 mark.

It's all in the controls. There is a "flapper" or door between the freezer compartment and the fresh food compartment. Other than the fan not operating, there is nothing else that would affect the temperature. The higher you set your freezer, the warmer the fresh food compartment will be. As long as your freezer is working, and you can hear the fan turn on, it's a control issue.

Frige not cooling on bottom freezer frige


Check the air vents, from the freezer to fridge. Air travels through those vents. Sometimes, products get shoved under the vents, preventing air flow. It sounds like, the vents are clogged with something. I guess, the fan is working inside, of the freezer? Ice in the bottom, of the freezer pan, could be clogging the vents. You'll have to dig deeper. Good luck.

Our Sharp refrigerator model SJ-F60PC. 4 doors, freezer at the bottom and fridge at top. The fridge section is not cold although the freezer section is working fine. Much appreciated if anyone can help!


Your defroster timer switch may be at faught. The defrost timer turns on a heating coil to defrost your frige. This is only a guess since I don't have the year. Do this: feel the walls if they are hard and they have no give to them, then your fridge is frozen up solid and no air can circulate. Unplug you fridge for 24 to 36 hours. Put towels on the floor to catch the water. If the defrost timer is bad it will defrost naturally with room temp. Plug back in after 24 to 36 hrs and see if bottom is now getting cold. If it is the defrost timer, the solution is not cheap. It's up to you to repair or invest in new. Good luck Google burdfrenzy

The refrigerator is not cooling properly. Two small vents on the inside wall. one is producing cool air the other is not. The freezer works fine.

The bottom is not cooling, the freezer is cold. There doesn't seem to be any air flowing into the bottom portion

Fridge not cold, freezer fine...


look at the back inside wall of the freezer. you might need to put your hand on it to feel it. if you see or feel frost the you have a defrost problem. if its not defrosting the frost builds up and blocks air flow from the freezer to the frige so the frige cant cool. it will either be the defrost element, defrost thermostat or the defrost timer causing the problem

Bottom Freezer working but not side!


Typically the freezer air is circulated into the frige area to provide cooling. If the circ. fan is not working or the air ducts/channels/dampers are blocked with ice, food, etc. then no cool air will get from the freezer to the frige area. Check all the air channels and to see if the dampers are open along with the circulation fan running. The diagrams at the following link should help you see inside better. If your lower circulation fan is running then you likely have an air return/supply channel blocked with ice and will require an old style defrost (unplug unit and leave doors open for 24 hours to melt ice, etc.). If the fan isn't running then that needs to be replaced. Air channels can freeze up if a door is left open slightly overnight or other moisture enters the freezer/frige. http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=ER6AHKXPQ&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0

Side by side freezer


Check that the freezer circulating fan is running. The frige section may have dampers or vents (lets the freezer air cool the refer section) that are open too much. Usually the bottom area in the frige has a control lever to meter how much cold air gets to that section (lots for meat, little for fruits, etc.). Check the owners manual for operation of those vent dampers.
