Question about LG LRSC26910 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Icemaker makes too few cubes

I have an LG refrigerator, but mine is a french drawer model with bottom drawer freezer. I have noticed that in each "batch," the icemaker makes significantly fewer cubes than the number of cavities that are in the icemaker. The cube size, however, is absolutely correct, and can be adjusted with a little electronic setting on the front of the icemaker.

So what I want to know is this: how are the little cavities that make each cube connected? It seems like water just doesn't flow fast enough from one cube cavity to the next, so the tray-filling switch cuts the water pressure off before the further-away cubes have time to fill up? But that doesn't make sense either, because then I would have eight very-tiny cubes, as water would eventually seep to other cavities before freezing. Instead, I have a few plump, full-size cubes, but definitely not the full capacity of the icemaker.

Find the water source for the ice maker(most are under the kitchen sink and are tapped off of the cold water line to the faucets) You need to either shut off the tap by turning it clockwise until it is closed. Then you need to disconnect the vinyl tubing from the valve. get a bucket and place it where it will catch the water from the tap. Gradually open the tap by turning it counterclockwise until water starts to come out of the valve. If you have a large enough bucket open the valve all of the way. If the stream of water does not change then the valve is bad and needs replacing. If the stream is nice and strong then the valve is ok. Turn the valve clockwise to close it, reattach the vinyl tubing and open the vale all of the way. This should improve the quanity of ice cubes. If not then there is a cripmp in the vinyl line between the tap and the solinoid valve on the back of the refrigerator.

Lg icemaker stuck


You have an overflow of ice building up in the reservoir. Turn off the maker and use the contents until 3/4 are used up. Turn on again and stop when near full. Check to see if the LEVEL of the refrigerator is correct. The BOX may be tilted forward and an adjustment made.

How do you change the ice cube setting on the 25cf LG French Door bottom freezer? I cannot see anywere in the manual where it indicates where you change this setting?!


The icemaker requires a water pressure of 1.5 - 8.5kgf/cm2. It is acceptable if the water supply fills a cup of 180cc with water in 3 seconds. The icemaker produces small cubes if the water fed into it is not enough and lumped together if too much water is supplied. In order to obtain the desired size of ice cubes, the amount of water supplied to the ice maker needs to be adjusted. Adjust the valve supplying water to the icemaker or the unit in general in such a way that right amount of water fills the ice tray.

The flow of water is controlled by a solenoid. Thus magnetic -- rather electromagnet which mones the vale from open & close, both in the ice-maker & the water dispenser.
Thus the valve which is activated when door closes, must have lost its earlier condition and must be making an irritable buzz whenever its on. Simply get the Valve assembly replaced, preferably from their authorized service center closest to your place of residence.

My french door with freezer at bottom ,LG icemaker making very little ice.


Perhaps there is not enough water coming into the tray on each cycle? Are the ice-cubes very thin? If so timer needs to be reset. LG use a 3-switch DIP on a control panel near the main power board. By changing these switches to various combinations of on/off you can change the timing - longer means more water each time (but too much water means overflow into the blocks already made).

There are service manuals that explain what each setting does - but because its near the high-voltage power board, I'd suggest you get a repairman unless you are a good DIY'er

Bottom freezer door/drawer won't close all the way on one side.


Remove all the food from the freezer and then the drawer from the cabinet. Now using a silicone based lubricant, lube the tracks up real well. Be sure to clean the tracks first if gunked up. Make sure nothing small fell out of the basket over time and is laying on the floor in the rear of the freezer section. Once done, you should be fine.

Ice maker not making cubes


You may have ice built up in icemaker where the water goes into it.  You will have to remove the icemaker and to get the ice cleared out.  Once that's done, you should be ok.
