Question about LG LFC22740 Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
No unusual noise. Started about 8wks ago & ice is getting progressively thicker. LEFT side only.
Most likely the defrost sensor as they are more likely to fail rather than the defrost element. either way if you are going to remove the back panel take youe time and be careful not to damage the Styrofoam attached to the back of the panel cover. A hair drier will help melt the ice, when the panel come freepull it out far enough to look behind it for any wire connectors and disconnect them, now the panel can be removed. remove any ice remaining in the compartment using a hairdryer or by spraying hot water. make sure the drain tube is clear of ice and debris, if you have a turkey baster you can use it to squirt hot water down the drain tube. if you need help let me know i am a service technition in the Sonora area

1 or 2 problems. The drain line to the pan under the frig is pluged. This will not allow the water from the defrost cycle to escape and be evaporated. Thus the ice gets thicker. May be the heating element for the defrost stopped working. Check for the wiring diagram sheet.It may be under the frig or behind the back panel.Be sure to unplug before working on it. Find the heating element wiring, disconnect and do a continuity check with a multimeter. Should have resistance. If not replace element.

i suspect that repair man got it wrong. ice may be blocking return duct to fridge. worth a chance to turn off for 24 hours with doors open then retry

You posted under an incorrect model number, so can only give general info. IF is a code for ice room fan. It is a fan located in a plastic box in the upper left hand corner of the freezer. The IF code shows up if the control board does not get a feedback signal from the fan telling the control board that the fan is running. I'd check to see if there is some ice blocking the fan blade. If that is not the case, you will need a meter to do further diagnostics to find out if your problem is with the fan motor or the control board. (note: when you turn the icemaker off, the fan will no longer blow cold air into the ice room, and all the ice will melt. Also, when the icemaker bin is full, the same basic thing can happen. Steady use of ice or dumping the bin will prevent ice from melting in bin.) The fan runs on 12 to 16 volts DC (variable speed), and the feed back signal is about 4.5 volts DC.

SOURCE: Faulty ice maker
Hello. Yes, that is the correct position for the icemaker feeler arm. The updated icemaker has a longer feeler arm that hangs down a little more (thereby shutting off sooner when the ice piles up not so high).
Your water leak onto your food is from water spilling out of the front left corner of the ice tray during fill. This has also been updated with a plastic lip that keeps the water from sloshing out when filling up.
The photo shows that your ice tray appears to be unlevel and drooping in the front left corner. This happens with flex tray icemakers over time. The icetray does not fully flex back to its level posiiton. I do not feel you need to replace the entire icemaker. Repalcing just the ice tray should fix your issue.
Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

When the ice maker calls for water it pours for about 7 seconds if more will overflow and the problem is in the ice maker board but if pours water for nomore than 7 seconds and still overflow it means that was extra water in the ice maker ,that means that the dual water valve(located in the bottom back of the refrigerator) is leaking and needs to be replaced.

It sounds like the actuator for your dispenser switch is sticking. To fix it you will need to get inside the dispenser housing, which involves removing the decorative front panel on the dispenser.
It's kinda tricky to get this thing apart, and it's even harder to get it put back together if you've never done it. I'd recommend calling a repairman.
