Check to see if you can feel the inside fan. The fresh food section is cooled by the freezer only. If the fan is not running the fresh food section will be warm. Also make sure the damper is open between the freezer and the fresh food section. It is controlled by one of the two knobs inside the fresh food section. The knob that turns the unit off and on is the thermostat, the other is the damper control. They are sometimes confusing the way they are named by factory.
One of these two things should be your problem

Maybe those light bulbs are not for a refrigerator appliance. Go to the local Home Depot and ask for refrigerator light blubs.

Refrigerator not cold enough and freezer is too cold making food very hard? water seems to leaking on bottom of freezer and refrigerator.


Refrigerators with attached freezers typically keep the two compartments at predetermined temperatures, but failure of some components can lead the refrigerator to seem warm while the freezer portion completely freezes.

Fan Issues
According to the appliance website Appliance Aid, many freezers contain a fan that blows cold air throughout the freezer and into the attached refrigerator. If this fan fails, the site explains that the freezer may become too cold; the refrigerator will not receive air circulation from the freezer, though, and will remain warmer than normal.

Air Damper
Appliance Aid also notes that most refrigerator and freezer combinations contain a damper that regulates the flow of air between the two compartments. If the damper sticks or fails to function properly, it may restrict the flow of air from the freezer to the refrigerator. The result of a failed damper would be a completely frozen freezer and a warmer than normal refrigerator.

Hope this would help.

Good day!

Where are you getting frost at? Is it on the back wall in the freezer? if so - your problem may be a defrost issue and in that case you would need to hire a professional appliance repair technician to service your refrigerator.

It sounds like a defrost system failure. The following links will give you some idea on how to troubleshoot the differeent components of that system

The defrost heater is easy to check with a ohm meter. http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/freezer/check/defrostheater.php If you have continuity, then it is good.

http://www.ehow.com/how_4504020_test-refrigerator-defrost-timer.html is instructions on how to test the timer.

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/check/defrosthermo.php is instruction on how to test the defrost thermostat.


You should also check to make sure the the condenser coils are clean and that air flow is good over it. I.E. the fan is operating, and not a lot of debrie on or around the condenser coils.

Hope this helps.

open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing around?it sounds like the evap fan motor isn't running and that's why it's cold on the bottom and not the top,you have to repair this fast or you'll loose your food in the fridge,the fan is what blows the cold air from the freezer to the fridge section.

The top freezer cools like a fridge, the bottom fridge is warm


The fluxating temps bottom to top and top to bottom freezing are a result of the "air damper and baffle assy" not functioning properly. I would attempt fo make my case with LG that this started while the unit was under full warranty and persists today.
