LG french door with non working ice maker

LG 2 year old out of warranty with ice maker that has stopped working. This is an on again off again problem. Tech support initially told me how to switch off and on holding the reset to recycle the ice maker. Nothing seemed to work. Then suggested a repair company who said no point in coming out unless I arranged to replace the ice maker at $250.00.
Then weeks later the ice maker started working and has done for last 2 months. Now stopped again. LG tech support will not assist me to try any resets. All they will advise is use an independent LG service agent to come and fix or replace. I am not happy to spend $250 + on an almost new refrigerator.
Is this typical of LG?
Any ideas on what I can try doing as I have nothing to lose?
thanks

Similar problem. Occasionally my ice maker goes on the fritz. Usually I can turn off the ice maker and place a piece of newspaper over the freezer holes for overnight and it starts making ice when I turn it back on. This time that didn't work so I unplugged it this morning for 3 hours and put all the stuff in coolers. I opened all the doors and removed the freezer bin (just the bin maa'm, not the frame) so I was sure the water lines inside the fridge doors and sides would unfreeze. Plus side is the Fridge got a good cleaning. I just heard my first ice drop about a 1/2 hour ago.

I would first turn off the ice maker overnight. Then tap the bottom and get all the condensed water out. I use a towel and I have also taken the who mechanism off the door. Once the water is removed it won't freeze and lock up the arm. It has worked for me a few times.

Error code is 1F - the fan has stopped working


My 2 year old LG LFX23961ST refrigerator started showing error code Er IF. In searching help here,
I found out it meant the problem was with the Ice maker Fan. When I checked the ports where the cold air blows into the Ice maker compartment, there was no cold air coming out (you have to hold the door switch in to turn on the fan). I removed the ice maker module (two screws) and unplugged it. When I closed the door, the fan started running, but was making a rattling noise. I suspected ice build up.
Emptying out the freezer compartment, I pulled the rear cover of the compartment off and found what I had suspected. Cleaned out the ice, put everything back together and Voila! Everything working again.
As I write this, I can hear ice dropping into the ice holding tray. Not sure yet why the whole ice blockage thing happened though. Will keep an eye on it. It's been several hours since the repair and no issues. All seems well. It's not rocket science. If you can use a screwdriver, you can fix it too.

Tried to replace the filter and after that the upp


I don't think replacing the filter had anything to do with your problem.  If the ice maker is working then the freezer is OK since they have the same cooling source.  I had the same problem with this model refrigerator six months after I got it (in 2/2007).  The cooling in the refrigerator section failed.  The refrigerator fan and the air duct as well as the mother board were replaced.  A year later the ice-maker fan froze up. It and the housing were replaced with improved models.  The mother board was also replaced again due to software changes related to the ice maker.  This model is also part of an Energy Star/LG case agreement to modify the circuits and provide a lifetime annual rebate payment.  Check it out and register on the LG web site.

Ice maker stopped working after about 6 months


Sounds like the ice maker heater (which releases the cubes) is not working. Individual parts are not available. The entire ice maker must be replaced, but since you say it is only 6 months old, it would be covered under the factory warranty. Find a service provider (in the US) at http://www.lge.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp

Ice maker "ticking" sound?


Mine started doing the same thing. The problem with mine was that the part that spins around to eject the ice is hung up... first, it was trapping an ice cube in it... I cleared the cube and it stopped making noise for a while, then a cube hung up again. Now I found that one of the 'teeth,' all the way to the right, was stuck under the housing... the part is bent, and needs to be replaced.

Check the part that spins to make sure nothing is stuck. Service is expected in home soon (I hope).

Really Noisy


There is a new computer board that has to be installed and the freezer defrosted to solve the problem.
