There could be a loss of freon(unlikely but possible), the start capacitor for the compressor is bad (most likely) or the thermal cut off switch on the compressor is cycling from the hot compressor.

I have a LG refrigerator model no. LFX25960ST that stopped working. All my meats in the freezer defrosted and the upper fridge is also warmed. I can hear the fan running. I unplugged it and plugged back...

it is not a great idea turning a fridge off and back on straight away. It will overload the compressor and cause it to trip out. I would suggest that the starter relay has failed on the compressor but if the fridge has been left to cycle on and off too many times, it will damage the compressor. Turn it off and get a fridge tech to look at it and confirm the fault.

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.

Hi there,

Most LG fridges have a 1 year warranty with some components exteneded, such as the compressor or sealed system repair. Those are usually 5 years or long, depending on the model.

Can you tell me the temp. in your fridge please? I have a strong suspicion that it may just be the thermostat.
