Question about Fisher and Paykel Refrigerators
FREEZER TEMPERTAURE OK BUT FRIDGE WONT REFGULATE
There is a conduit from the freezer that feeds cold air into the refrigerator compartment. Make sure that the conduit is not blocked in the freezer area nor the refrigerator area. You should also have a control inside the refrigerator that regulates a sort of trap door inside the conduit. Make sure it is open or increase the opening by moving it to a higher number. Do not confuse that control with the thermostat.

Testimonial: "Thanks, I will look later today. Where should I look exactly for the conduit? Inside the back of the fridge - from the inside, or look at the back of the fridge from the outside? Last night I took out the wall section of the central part of the inside back but it seemed to just have polystyrene and wires and connection boards. More information- the temperature regulator for the fridge doesn't seem to have much effect. I would say the fridge section is running at about 6-8 degrees (it is working but not enough, it should be about 2-4 degrees I would guess) . The freezer works fine. Th fridge freezer is only about 4 years old, its in good condition. If you could tell me where to look for that conduit that would be great. Any other comments very welcome. Many thanks."

If the fridge has been making more noise than usual, like the sound of a plastic fan grating against something then the fan has probably seized up with ice. This will cause the fridge temperature to rise. It is located at the back of the fridge behind a plastic panel at the bottom where the water cooler pipe and bottle are. You need to partially remove this panel just enough to be able to aim a hairdryer down the back of it to defrost the fan.

SOURCE: My LG GRL207QVJA fridge is
I would check your owners manual but most LG only have a 12 month warranty .
check your Express or Fast Freezing Function is not turn on.
then you most like have a Thermistor/ control problem.
let me know

Welcome to Fixya
You said, your Trio won't make ice. Freezer stays at about 25 degrees regardless of control setting. Fridge maintains 40 degrees at mid setting. Shouldn't the freezer be close to zero? Is there a way to check the temperature sensor in the freezer?
To check the temperature you can buy a refrigerator thermometer at the hardware store.
Ask if it can be used in the freezer too!
The fridge sounds slightly to cold and the freezer not enough.
Fist look in your freezer and check if the articles there are full to the max and covering the air vents usually found in the rear of the freezer.If so clear an opening for the freezer to breath.
Refrigerators and freezers usually share the cold air and I've seen this be the problem on many occasions.
If freezer was not I blocking the vents or even full to the max.
Then pull the plug out or if you can not reach the plug, trip the breaker off for 5 minutes and see if this resets the system.BUT do not plug the fridge back in before at least 3 minutes.
Let me know how it goes and send me any questions.
Thank You, Huuum

I had the same prob, you need to defrost it until No MORE water drips out of the drain pipes located at the back ( there should be 2 of them one for fridge one for the frezzer, make sure the rubber thing at the top of the pipe is not closed up- if it is cut it open ) when you think its defrosted place a cup under these pipes and leave it for a few more hours, if there is ANY more water in there your not defrosted yet and it wont work--- Leave the doors open of course, mine took almost three days and i live in a hot climate.
ok once you have done that, take the cover off for the main circuit board ( top of the fridge ) on the circuit board there should be a little black button with "test" on it hold that in and turn the fridge on. it should beep at you ( wait 5 sec ) then push it again ( beeps again, wait 5 sec ) push it again, you have to do it about 3-4 time before it stops beeping, when its stopped, just leave it, it should start up after a couple a mins.
the fridge will take much longer to get cold so be patient, if you find it flashing again push that test button, i just played round with mine and it came right, good luck, because the only other way round the prob is to turn it off at the wall and turn it back on.

There are 2 or 3 things that would cause this. first make sure the condenser coils are not plugged with dust (vacumn or blow them out) next check to make sure the fan that cools these coils is running, (this is the most likely problem). if both of these check out ok then you would need to check to make sure your interior lights ar going off when the doors are closed as these will add extra heat and cause the center rails to run hot. last and most uncommon would be a freon system problem.
fyi there is a hot gas freon line that runs in between the doors to prevent exterior sweating. when poor or no air flow problems for the condenser coil exist it causes this area to become hotter.
One more thing. if you do determine that the condenser fan motor is bad you can put a normal house fan blowing on to the coil to help cool this area down until you can get the unit repaired.
If you need any further assistance leave me a comment here and I'll gladly get back to you. Thanks Peyton
