Question about LG LFX28978ST 27.6 Cu.Ft. French Door Refrigerator

Open Question

The plastic ****** piece and the hinge plate is broken on the articulating mullion in my LG model #LFX28978ST refrigerator.

I know that the part I'm needing to buy is the articulating mullion #AGU73530705, but this piece does not include the ****** that slides up into the grove of the mullion. I don't want to have to buy a whole new door for one little plastic ****** piece. I also see no way to replace that little piece in the door. What is my best and most economical fix to this problem?

SOURCE: Replacing Door Hinge

Before replacing the hinge, try to spray on it WD-40 or an equivalent and wait for awhile, it might solve your problem. In case it will not solved your problem and you need to replace the hinge, by removing machine's upper cover (open 2 screws on the back cover and then slide it out)you will have an access to it. Good luck !

SOURCE: Refrigerator Lights Stayed on, Melted Plastic and Stopped Cooling

The control board relay switch for the light bulb stuck in the on position and needs to be replaced along with the light cover and housing.  There is also a replacement light harness that has a high limit switch to shut off the lights if this happens again.  LG knows about this problem and if you call LG customer service, they will grant a one time warranty extension to take care of this problem.

How do I replace the bottom socket where the door hinge slides in

I assume you mean the hinge that is on the cabinet and not the door? If its the door part that has failed, you will need to get a new door. If its the cabinet hinge, some of these are screwed onto the cabinet from underneath the fridge. Others however, are mounted inside the cabinet and are not really designed for replacement. Ive fixed a few over the years on different brands where the plastic hinge has broken but it can be a bit messy. The cabinet needs to be carefully peeled or bent back on the bottom corner of the fridge to access where the hinge is mounted. Unscrew the hinge and if you are lucky, the Manufacturer has these as a spare part. If not, the only way is to go to a hardware or cabinet parts store to try and source something that will suffice. Do NOT be tempted to put a normal gate or door hinge onto the fridge door and screw it onto the cabinet. Inside the cabinet especially around the edges are whats called "mullion heater" pipes or in older fridges, mullion elements. If you screw through a pipe, you will lose the gas and fridge will be shot. If you screw through an electrical mullion heater, there is a danger of electrocution.

My side by side refrigerator door swings open (somewhat out of control). It appears that the door stop is no longer working How can I fix this?

There is a self closer stop mechanism under the door between the door and the hinge, The door must be removed by removing the top hinge and lifting off the lower hinge flip the door and you will see a plastic piece which is probably broken there is also a piece on the hinge . Both should be replaced

Door is slightly hanging

if the door is hanging check the cam riser (hinge) on the lower part of the machine. Usually a plastic piece of it call a cam is broken. If you would post the brand model and serial I can get you a part number, etc.

Remove doors

on top of the refrig is a plastic cap that snaps over the hinge. pry this off. there are some small bolts with 5/16" hex head bolts. remove these and the door should lift off the bottom pin. if you wish to change the opening direction of the door, you need to change the bottom pin location to the other side of the fridge. there should be some plastic plugs in the door mullion on the opposite side of the original position which you pry out. unscrew the bottom hinge and refasten it to the new location. same goes for the upper hinge pin and its hardware.
