Question about LG LFC25760 French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

LG Design defect - Light stayed on and melted the fridge.

This appears to be a common problem with LG LFC25760 / LFC21760 .

When I got home from a day at the beach and opened the fridge, it was hot and smoky inside. The lights had stayed on and melteed the control unit enough that it dropped from the top of the fridge.

I did a google search and found several similar reports for this model.
Clearly this is a design defect and should be fixed for free by LG.

We'll see.

Yes, contact LG for this known problem. it's a circuit board defect. the tech should replace both bulbs w/lower wattage, plastic bulb lens, lens surround and bulb sockets themselves. be sure to have your fridge model # and serial # handy.

We have a 4 year old LG fridge obviously out of warrenty. Repair man was just here. Why does LG wire lights into main board? Why does LG install TWO 60 watt bulbs (120 watts!!) when the notice in the...


LG issued a service flash about this very problem, so you may be in luck. The last one I did for a customer was paid for by LG.. In a nutshell, LG screwed up. The control board that the lights tie into has a bad relay, which causes the lights to stay on all the time. The fix is to get a new control board and a new light harness. The new harness has a thermal switch that shuts off the lights should they not shut off in the future. I'd try LG customer service and see if they can help you out.

Good Luck!

LG LFC25760 not working


This error appears when the fridge goes into defrost mode (after a few hours of initial startup and therefore a sign that your PCB is probably just fine). Look into the thermostor in the freezer compartment (mine was bad, a $2 part from Radio Shack), the defrost heating element or the temperature sensor in the freezer compartment.

Inside top of refrigerator hot light don't turn off.


There is a service bulletin related to this, dealing with deformation / melting of the lamp cover. The fix is to change the lamp wire harness to one that now has a thermal protector incorporated in it (part number 6621JK2003B) along with changing the main PCB board to one that uses a larger relay for this function (part number 6871JB1423N).

In case you want or need to replace the following,
The lamp cover is part number 3110JA1096A and the lamp holder is part number 3034JA1009A

I tried to cut and paste a few photo's, but was unsuccessful. Sorry. Make sure to test that fans and light switches work after part changes.
