Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a LG LSC26905SB refrig that has stopped getting power to any part of the fridge. The compressor does not run and the lights do not light up on the front (water/ice area) or inside the fridge. I have already reset the circuit breakers and double checked that the plug does work. Any resets on the machine or anything I can try to get it to work? It is 2 years old and unfortunately since it is sunday- there are no service techs available until monday and we leave town tomorrow for a week. Thanks!

Possible control board failure ...you may notice the freezer lights do work but nothing else.There is a diagnostic push button on the board located on the top of unit under a panel where the power cord enters. andrews electronics .com is the oem provider for this very expensive control board.

Refrig won't cool on either freezer or refrig side. Confirmed manual settings & allowed 24 hrs for cooling. Is there a reset switch somewhere other than manual switches inside refrig?


check that the compressor is working by feeling for motor vibrations at the compressor, hot compressor unit or hot fins or back wall of the fridge
if there is not heat then the compressor is not working
call a technician as it could be a start/run capacitor failed or compressor seized
get a quote as some compressor replacements cost as much as a new fridge
check that the utility power is getting to the fridge/freezer

Subzero 532 refrig fan(& compressor) doesn't shut off


the higher the number on a fridge the warmer it is so setting it to 1 is close to 0C
when working on a fridge or freezer always turn it off at the wall
if the fridge is keep cold but not cold enough set it back to say 3
if the compressor is running and the back fins / wall is hot then the fridge is working
use a piece of paper between the door seal and the fridge edge to ensure that it is sticking to the fridge and sealing off properly

If Fridge working fine now, the problem may be is Hydro Grid.

When the fridge just start, the compressor is running with high pressure of Freon. If Hydro power has voltage surge or power Off/On ( suddenly ), the compressor should be stuck, the overheat protection switch will actived, than fridge will stop working.

The noice of "click" - properly is overheat switch auto-reset.

I recently brought this fridge out of storage, it was working perfectly fine before i put it into storage. I plugged it in and the lights are on, i let it run for a few hours but it did not get cold or...


The cooling fans do not run unless the right temperature is reached. The important thing is to find if the compressor is running. If you do not hear a whirring sound when the fridge is powered on, then the compressor has a problem. Generally when you put in storage the refrigent can leak out and needs to be refilled.

If the compressor is running then check the thermostat settings. Might also help if you provide the make and model number of your fridge.

Our 4 year old GE side by side frig suddenly warmed to 64 degrees. Freezer stopped freezing and is at 43. Motor is running.


Really need to know what motor(s) are running (compressor, evap fan inside freezer compartment, condenser fan under fridge)?? Of course, check your temperature (thermostat) settings. Side-by-sides usually have 2 of them. They should be labled for refridgerator and freezer. The freezer control usually only opens a baffle from the freezer compartment to the refridge compartment. The refrigerator temp control is the one that controls the compressor on-off cycles and the temp of refrig compartment (this keeps the refrig compartment from freezing the milk and cokes) If the freezer control/baffle is set too far open, this will cause the refrig temp control to shut off too soon for the freezer temp to get low enough. These controls can get bumped out of the correct setting accidently from time to time.
To check the following, the fridge has to be running, or in a condition where it "should be" running: If compressor is running (condenser fan should be too), check if evaporator fan (inside freezer) is running. Open (freezer) door and hold door light switch in when you check evaporator fan operation (some fans stop when door is open) If it is not running you may have a bad evaporator fan motor. It could also be a bad defrost timer, causing the evaporator (also inside back of freezer) to ice-up. This blocks the air flow over evap. Also, there is a defrost terminator switch on the evaporator coil that stops the defrost cycle when coil is clear of ice/frost (but timer hasn't ended defrost cycle). If it is defective, that could also keep the fridge from going into the defrost cycle, or taking it out too soon. If it is the timer, change the defrost terminator as well. Depending on how handy you are, you may be able to check/change any of these parts yourself. If you don't know much about elecrical stuff, you should leave it to a repair tech. Hope this helps.

Refridgerator stops cooling


Check the compressor relay near the compressor on the back bottom of the fridge. Check voltage it should read about 115, up above that there is a computer sensor, check that also has a fuse on it. One of the two is bad, they are cheap part and you can find them on LG.com

LG fridge suddenly stopped cooling.


If the fan inside the freezer is running and the compressor behind the fridge is running and is hot to touch, you have a gas problem or the compressor is inefficient. This can only be confirmed by connecting refrigeration gauges to the gas system and should only be performed by a fridge tech.
