The fridge section shouldn't ever freeze anything.
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

SOURCE: Refrigerator not cold

Hi,
Usually when this happens it is because of a problem with the fan that moves cold air from the freezer section of your unit to the refrigerator section. Either the fan has gone bad or the unit has frosted up to the point of stopping the fan. Try defrosting (unplugging) the unit over night and then check it to see if the fan runs. If not then replace the fan. If it runs and then stops after awhile like days or even a few weeks, then you may need a defrost timer.


I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

My LG window AC icing on the grid even in fan mode. Once started it gets covered with ice within 1 hours in both cooling as well as fan mode? What can be the reaon


First, I'm not a LG tech.
Check your warranty and call for service.
*** Following is for information only.***
* Check for air movement while fan is running. Many have plastic ducting that pulls air from the bottom that is usually covered by the lower drawer. Pull out the lowest tray and check the back for ice or food that fell in back to block the air vent. If it's iced up, DON'T hit it as you will crack the plastic. Leave the door open, Turn off and let the freezer defrost. (remove food).
* Check the upper fan vent for ice blockage. Defrost as needed.
* Unplug refrigerator to defrost. (Get help to move as the fridge is heavy and may tip over on you.)
* Once completely free of ice (it takes a while. A fan blowing into the freezer helps. ***DONOT use a heater!*** Warps panels and may over pressurize refrigerant.)
* Allow a completed defrosting of the freezer. (Place frozen foods in refrigerator side to keep it cold while the refrigerator is off. Better to transfer everything to another refrigerator.)
* Keep checking and dumping the drain tray as the ice melts. If no water drains then the line may be clogged. Call for service.
* Plug in refrigerator but leave out where you still can unplug it if you need to continue to defrost. Move it back only if everything is working (so far).
* Set the temperature to middle of dial and the freezer diverter to normal (middle). Leave fridge empty to allow it to cool down without a load. Check for icing (there shouldn't be any as there is no moisture in box to ice up.) If there is ice then it did not defrost enough. Turn off and repeat manual defrost (open door)
* Once your sure all the ice is gone and the freezer is cold. Move refrigerator back into the counter/wall. (it's lighter but get help anyway.) Start putting back the frozen goods. Try not to cram in everything. Keep enough space on racks to allow air flow AROUND the whole shelf. Keep away from leaning food against the walls and back.
* Leave the temperature setting at mid range. Your refrigerator should be able to keep food frozen at this setting.
* Check your door seals for cracks
* Check your door perimeter for warmth. It should not be sweating or ice cold. Cool or slightly warm to the touch is normal.
* Check your side panels (not doors). It should be cool but not iced or sweating.
* Final, with the Temperature set at mid range. If your still getting ice then you have a vapor leak. (Moist air getting into the freezer) Note that this moisture can also come from hot moist food placed in freezer without pre-chilling it. If you must put hot food In the freezer. Then place it in the refrigerator section for at least an hour prior to the freezer. The refrigerator can handle the moisture load better than the freezer. The refrigerator just collects the water and drains it to the bottom pan.
* Again, check your warranty and call for service. Have them perform yearly maintenance to check everything.
Aloha, ukeboy57

PS; If everything is okay (so far) then only gradually adjust the temperature SLOWLY. You will find that maxing to the coldest setting will only build up the ice quicker. Normal freezer operation can take care of the occasional (daily) opening of the freezer door. It will 'dry' out the frost and ice build up (If given the chance). But if you find that Ice keeps building then you need a bigger new ice box.

The freezer is running and is set to the coldest setting but still is not cold enough to freeze our food. Ice has melted and food in the freezer is beginning to thaw.


The condenser coils dissipate heat. If dust and debris accumulate around the coils, your refrigerator may not be able to cool properly, it may run continuously or it may stop completely as a result of an overheated compressor.



1. Make sure condenser is clean.

2. If you have a "rear mounted" condenser (black coil on back) make sure it has enough room around it for air to circulate. Not against the wall and if under cabinet should have about six inches clearance.


.
Rear-Mounted CoilsYou should clean rear-mounted coils once a year. Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning. Refrigerators are heavy, never tip one forward or backward. Never attempt to move a refrigerator without an assistant.


Vacuum or brush the coils. If coils have a filmy build-up, use warm soapy water to clean them. Take care not to spill or drip water onto the components of the refrigerator.
Floor Level CoilsYou should clean floor level coils at least twice a year. Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning. Vacuum or brush the coils.
Remove the grill from the front of the refrigerator and use a vacuum with a wand attachment to remove any dust and debris. The grill should snap off and on. Pull firmly toward you and possibly upward to remove the grill. If it does not come off with a modest effort, check for screws or retaining clips that may hold it in place.

Freezer not cold enough to maintain ice and food


  • When your refrigerator isn't cooling your food and drink items, first check that the power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet. If you recently plugged in the refrigerator for the first time, it will take approximately 8 to 12 hours before the refrigerator is cool. Even though the refrigerator is cool in this time frame, you shouldn't place the refrigerator to a colder setting until the initial cool down stage, which takes 24 hours.

    If the refrigerator has been running for 24 hours, you can adjust the refrigerator to a lower setting. The control panel is located in upper portion of the refrigerator compartment. Press the up arrow button to set the refrigerator to a higher setting, which will decrease the temperature of the refrigerator compartment.
  • Door
  • If the temperature control is correctly set but the refrigerator compartment still does not cool down, check the refrigerator door. First, remove any food or drink items that are preventing the door from fully closing. In addition, make sure all of the drawers are fully closed, as they may keep the door from closing.

    Next, clean off the gasket with warm, soapy water and a sponge. Rinse the soapy water off of the gasket. If the gasket is not clean, it will not create a seal with the refrigerator.

    Another reason the refrigerator is not cooling down may be because the refrigerator door is opened too frequently or left open for a long period of time. Pay attention to your use of the door and try to shorten the amount of time the door is opened.
  • Other Causes
  • Your Jenn-Air refrigerator might not cool down for other reasons. If you have recently added food to the refrigerator, the temperature of the food may have an effect on the temperature of the refrigerator. The temperature in the refrigerator will adjust after the food sits in the unit for an hour or more.

    You may have obstructed the air flow on the inside of the refrigerator with the placement of your food. The rear air grille is located under the crisper drawers. Move any food items away from the rear air grille to increase the air flow through the refrigerator.
  • If those thing above did not solve your problem you better check and replace the relay and compressor and it will be good as new. Thanks

    Our 3 months old refrigrator will get so cols that freezes food products.


    There are actually 2 cold controls on refrigerator-freezers. The main control is within the refrigerator cavity, the other is located in the freezer cavity. The one in the freezer is usually only a cold air deflector. It takes the cold air that is produced and divides it proportionally between the freezer and refrigerator sides. Set the control in the refrigerator to about mid-range. Set the control in the freezer to mid range. That is your starting point. If the freezer is not cold enough, adjust the freezer control. If the refrigerator s not cold enough, adjust the fridge control. After any adjustments, you MUST wait at least 24 hours for the temp to equalize before making any more adjustments. It may take a week to get it set right. This is true for all refrigerator-freezer combinations. Be patient.
