Fan runs all the time - freezer frost build up

I have the same problem with my french door LG - the fan is constantly running if the doors are closed. When a door is opened, the fan stops. There is frost build up on the contents within and on the plastic pieces in the freezer, as well. The light in the freezer gets stuck in the 'off' position and needs to be manually tripped for it to work at all. I have checked to see if the contents in the freezer could be the culprit, but there doesn't seem to be any obstruction!
The unit is three months old.

The fan should cycle during recovery period after you opened the unit and then shut off. Make sure there is plenty of space around the unit for ventilation. If you've done this and you said it's 3 months old? Call for warrantee service.

Frost on back wall of freezer


There is a door that is not closing 100% of the time. There is warm moist air entering the fridge and building up on the back wall.

Make sure all doors are closing. Sometime the bottom door will close on one side but not the other.

Good Luck.

If there is frost on the wall of freezer, you have a defrost problem, and not enough air is circulated due to frost build-up. If no frost and all fans and compressor is running, you have a sealed system failure. Time to replace refrig.

you need to have someone check the defrost circuit. if the unit does not defrost properly , ice will accumulate on the back panel where the evaporator is, blocking the evaporator fans completely, and the circulation fan will eventually stop working because the ice buildup contacts the blades all the fan motor, and eventually the refrigerator compartment will start to get warmer and warmer because there is no circulation of cool air.

Freezer frost buildup; fan constantly running; water filter


Just had mine repaired. Tech told me that the tempearature settings on the display panel are not EXACT science. The fridge is cooled by blowing air from the freezer to the fridge and when the sensor in fridge reached approx desired temperature, the damper is closed.

The noise you hear periodically (water dripping) is the heating rod melting the defroster (hence frost freeze), which unfortunately sometimes spills into the blower motor to fridge, causing frozen motor, causing the infamous ER FF error code and fridge failure.

I reluctantly had LG to do the energy saver fix (recall) and it replace everything that the internet users are complaining about.

LG LRFC22750 Bottom freezer french door refrigerator


6343ed3.jpg The problem is ice build up on the back wall. The noise you hear is the fan blades hitting the ice. On the back wall water gets trapped, it then builds up over time, and a big ball of ice forms and blocks the fan. Take off the back wall, defrost the build up and cut the insulation off as above. The water will no longer get trapped and the problem will not come back.
