How do i manually defrost an LG French door, bottom freezer, refrigerator?

Ice maker was leaking. Husband says to manually defrosts the freezer. (In old days, before frost-free fridges, we did this by putting pans of hot water into freezer to melt ice and frost and then removing it all by hand.)

    Thank you. The error code disappeared, so I believe I can postpone the defrosting. It's good to know how to do it if and when the error comes up again.

Leaking and ice maker is not working


Your ice maker freezer fan may be iced up. Take the freezer bin out and look at the back of the freezer. If there is ice built up, you have to defrost it.

I have a lg lfx25960sb,it is showing ER IF code on the panel above ice /water door,also not making ice?


ER IF indicates that the ice maker fan is not working. The fan is probably frozen. Remove the fan duct and housing at the back of the freezer and you may be able to defrost the ice in the fan enclosure. It will not defrost sufficiently by turning the freezer off for 2 to 4 hours as LG suggests. The fan may have frozen because of high humidity or because the defrost cycle is not working. If your unit is still under warranty LG should fix it by replacing the fan, duct panel and control board with new ones that have been re-engineered to prevent this problem.

Bottom Freezer has ice built up


Possibly the defrost element is faulty, this is located behind a cover in the back of the freezer compartment and is attached to the fins of the evaporator. It also has a defrost limit thermostat which could also be the problem. I presume that the fan is working after you have defrosted the unit?
