    It remains room temp inside. It pretty warm inside. Would that cost alot to fix the leak?

Cooling fan, behind internal plasic panel is frozen up, happens with me regularly, self defrost function not working properly, i'm just fixing mine as I write. I have found that bottom drain hole was all full of ice also. Have cleared with anti-freeze/hot water till runs through. Take out all shelves, remove back panel, there are screws behind chrome bezel and also inde-odoriser recesses (those two square plastic covers). Unscrew plastic water chiller, be careful not to damage pipes. Remove the back platic moulding, unclipping wire connectors and cooling fan is fastened to back, it will be frozen up with ice! I use hair dryer/ de-icer to thaw, dry off as much as possible. Beware, moulding is mainly polystyrene, i.e fragile. I suspect that I keep getting problems because I didn't clear out the bottom drain hole, so it did not defrost. Tell tale sign is noisy fan (hitting ice) which eventually freezes up and stops blowing cold air which causes fridge to stop cooling, compressor still works though!

I had this problem also. Similar to neil83 solution, my issue was solved by removing the panel in the back of the freezer. The difference was my fan was working fine, only the cooling element (the metal "radiator" directly under the fan) had become so encrusted with ice that no air was able to pass through the element and therefore no cold air was circulating through the fridge. Take off both panels in the back of your freezer and have a look, if it's frozen solid, leave a hair dryer pointed at it for a few hours until the ice melts, should fix your problem.

Freezer stays cold but fridge has been warm. I turn the thermostat to off for a day and then everything is ok for a week. Sounds like the fan is frozen solid when fridge doesn't work( no sound) Th


If there is no cooling at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that the compressor and gas pressure is OK. Now shut off the fridge and leave it powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if ice forms in the freezer then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

Lg air condition doesn't work when it is cold outside


Sounds like the crankcase heater. This is likely hooked to a temp sensor that is activated when it gets below a certain temp. There is likely a short in the heater and it trips the breaker. The heater keeps the refrigerant warm inside the compressor when compressor not running. Find a different technician.

Not getting cool enough


this sounds like a compressor problem. if the outside coils are getting hot (and properly ventilated) but the inside of the unit is not getting cold then the heat is coming from the compressor.

Fridge not cooling enough


Check compressor if it is working fine then check temperature thermostat. If they both are good then either your fridge has ran out of gas or the doors are not closing properly.

Freezer and Refrigirator not cooling


You didn't say if the compressor is running or not. If it is and all other things you stated are running then it has a sealed system problem. The sealed system comes with a 5 yr warranty in most cases (check owners manual). If the compressor is not running then listen for a click at the compressor. If you hear the click then I would replace the relay on the compressor. If you need further help I will need the complete model # off the sticker inside the fridge section.
