Question about LG Refrigerators

1 Answer

I Have just bought a used LG GR232BSF Fridge/Freezer. When it was delivered I was told to leave it for 8 hours before plugging it in, apparently to allow the compressor to settle. Is this usual?

My LG Refrigarator with a top freezer and water dispenser is frosting on the freezer and the refrigerator is warm


Top of Form

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.

We've had a new fridge delivered, the Daewoo frsu20iai, how long do we need to leave the fridge standing before switching it on? Different people have told us different times ranging from 1 hour to 24...


ideally leave it for 24 hours(but it wont hurt if you switch it on staight away)the standing time is to allow any air(gas) in the system to rise to the top of the pipes.besides it gives you time to check and level the doors,so that the seals fit flat all round.dont forget to cover/wrap all food in the fridge to cut down on condensation.root veg is best kept in airtight bags.

If you take the rear cover off the inside of the freezer you can see the evaporator coils. observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

Water in fridge


First, empty freezer and fridge. Unplug and leave door open for at least 3-4 hours. Blow out drain lines with compressed air. It is more likely that the drain line is clogged than frozen; but a clogged drain line will freeze-up quickly.

FF error code


The ER-FF problem that you have is: ERROR -FAN FREEZER so it means that you have a problem with maybe the fan motor or if it's a bottom mount freezer maybe ice built up on the fan motor so it's blockin the fan motor.
