Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

The door is probably frozen shut with ice. You may try to melt the ice around the gasket.

If the door has guide rails the only thing you can do is shut the unit down for 24 hours and hope that is enough time to melt the ice on the rails.

The problem with doors on rails is, if you do not close them flush, warm air can get in and ice everything up. They can get out of alignment and create a open gap.

SOURCE: Door difficult to open

Simple fix! A small puddle of water near the fridge led me (indirectly) to this fix. Our model is a fridge only, no ice or water dispenser and nothing spilled inside. Upon closer inspection I found a narrow tray along the back wall above the crisper drawers with a drain hose leading under the unit. Apparently it's a condensate drain, a plugged one at that! I cleaned it out, yuk, and soon discovered it serves a dual purpose... as a vent to help relieve the pressure from the vacuum created immediately after closing the door. It has renewed our love affair with this fridge. Hoo Hoo!

Why is there no cool air going into my refrigerator when freezer door is shut but works when freezer door is open


Good day,
All cooling comes from the freezer compartment. There is a supply vent connecting the top of the freezer to supply some cold air from the freezer thru the opening on the top connecting the freezer compartment to the fridge side.
As well there is a second opening or return chute located in the fresh food section on the bottom lower half, that allows air to return the air back to the freezer, completing the air flow cycle.In almost all cases, the return chute going from the fresh food section to the freezer compartment has become blocked.
Usually iced up.
It will ned to be completely defrosted. Many times, the return chute is difficult to see and in many cases almost impossible to defrost easily.
If you can see the blockage, then it can be defrosted with the gentle use of a hair dryer.
However, if too difficult to access, you may need to open both doors and leave the machine unplugged for an extended period, usually 12 to 24 hours.

I know it's a pain, but sometimes necessary. Many times, rushing a refrigerator repair is impossible.
The reaon it works when you open the doors is, you have given the machine a secondary source of air from the room.

Roaring sound


I have had the same issues. I have owned my LFX25960 for 18 months. All the cooling, noise, and condensation problems are related to 2 fans. One for the freezer/refrigerator compartments and One for the Ice Maker. The fans, apparently, are not sufficient to move enough air through the coils located behind a plastic panel in the freezer compartment. The part numbers for my fans are 1. Ice Maker 4681JB1029E and Refrig/Freezer 4681JK1004E. It is not impossible, but fairly difficult to replace them yourself. You have to remove the large slide out freezer drawer and glides. Then work the back freezer panel loose from the bottom. Be careful not to break it. It is plastic.
Routine maintenance: Pull the refrig out from the wall and blow-out the coils and fan located on the lower right rear. You might find it easier to do this by removing the cover on the lower, back of the refrig.

Freezer door won't stay shut


I have the exact same problem - very annoying. The only thing I found to work was to purchase one of those child safety locks. I bought the Kidco Appliance Fridge Lock S330 because it was the only one I could find that automatically relocks after you shut the door. Buy two (or more) at a time because the arm will eventually wear out and break (after several months depending on how often you use it). You can check out the product's details on eBay - that's where I purchased mine. Hope that helps.
