Fix error code if on LG fridge LFX31925, tried unplugging (maybe not long enough?), where is ice maker fan? and how do i replace it?

Hello Mike;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
I was hoping LG would stop manufacturing this type of design.
You need to stay away from bottom freezers, especially those manufactured by both LG & Samsung. Cosmetically they look nice. They are high maintenance and high failure.
You are probably good with tools and quite handy. But, what you are asking is a nightmare.
Here is the design flaw; there is a separate fan for the ice maker in your fresh food section door. Ice makers belong in the freezer. There are air ports that go to the enclosed housing on your door. This is where a separate fan in your freezer blows cooling air. When you open the fresh food section of your unit and close the door, you are forcing warm air down through these cooling ports into the ice maker fan. The fan builds up condensate and freezes.
The ice maker fan is located in the back of your freeze wall on the left hand side. You can not see it. There is a square mold that has 3 screws. The fan is behind this.
To access the fan, which normally does not need to be replaced; remove the bottom freezer door. The are two screws on outside of the rail system near the door. They are holding the door into slots. Remove the screws. Lift up pulling the door out of the slots. Set the door aside. In the back on the right hand side there is a small cover plate. On the back of the cover plate is your temperature sensor. Remover the cover plate 1 screw. Pop off the cover plate. Remove the sensor and attach a string to it for later recovery. This lead is short and after removing the back cover off you will need to recover it. You will not after unscrewing the retainer screws on the back cover to fully pull it off. The ice maker fan has short leads. You will need to struggle, after removing the 3 retaining screw on the cover plate, reaching behind to pull the fan out to disconnect the connector. The connector on this fan is very short.
Lets do it the easy way, chances are the fan motor is good. Using a hair dryer blow warm air down the ports from the port feeding the ice maker cooling air. Use the hair dryer on the freezer left hand wall. Better yet, unplug your unit for 24 hours.
Next time do not purchase a bottom freezer, Amada & Kitchen Aid are low maintenance. Kenmore & GE make some nice units if you get the right model.

Have ge gt mdl# gts22jbpbrww. the freezer is cold but the refrig is not getting cold. I took apart the cover showing me the freezer fan and it is not working could this be why the refrig is not getting...

Yes, if the fan is not forcing the cold air from the freezer section to the refrigerator section, then it will be warmer than it should be. Also check to make sure that the cooling tubes aren't blocked with frost/ice. If you put a hair dryer to the cooling tube openings you should feel the air flow on the other side.

My Maytag dryer is getting hot but there is not sny flow air air through the dryer. I cleaned out sll the lint but it seems like the blower is not working. Is this s problem I csn fix?

The blower fan is Plastic & attached to one end of motor. Its possible the center hub of the fan has broken out of fan. It is held on by a spring clamp around the outside of the hub securing it to the shaft. Must remove dryer front panel to get to it. Your manual should show how to remove it. Usually 2 hidden screws at bottom by kick panel recess, remove screws & pull out at bottom & swing out to release top spring clips. It is fairly easy fix, fan housing front cover must be removed to replace fan (4 to 6 screws)

I have a Nordyne/Intertherm electric furnace #E2EH-012 in a mfg home I just moved into. The Handy Man removed a 16 x 20 x 1 filter (very dirty) from "somewhere". I'm not sure where a replacement filter...

The filter will go in to the backside (inside) of the cover with fins in it. There is a 1" (approx) bend (lip) there to hold filter in against backside of cover, in front of air vents. You may have to bend it slightly to get it in there but it will eventually fit in there snug. Incoming air will then be filtered as it is drawn through that filter, into blower area.
As far as fan switch goes, "auto mode" will be used when furnace is on, and fan will come on & off as necessary to dissipate heat as required. "Ventilate", should be basically same as "On", where the fan comes on to circulate the air throughout the home, just for airflow, and you control it manually.
So, when using furnace, have fan in "auto Mode".

Freezing and ice build up stopping fan.

you could buy a spare cover and experiment with it (the one you constantly have to take off) cut it with a hacksaw blade or bend it slightly with a heat gun so the air from the fan moves in a different direction slightly. I sure wouldnt want to be working in GE's design department and have to be responsible for a huge design flaw like this. Usually GE's are trouble free.

Kenmore HE Dryer not blowing hot air

I have a gas kenmore dryer... the drum runs- it blows air and for just a few minutes warm air but after a few minutes the air is cold. I have cleaned the vent checked it good. I didn't see the fuse on the back I have the bottom latch open and see several wires that can be disconnected; snap together.

Temperature control

The freezer is usually cooled by the compressor, the fridge is then cooled by an evaporator fan motor ($30). If this fan seizes or slows down then the fridge warms up (it sometimes starts squealing before this happens). The fan may spin, but it if goes too slowly, then it would blow enough cool air into the fridge, especially if it is opened quite frequently.

If you think it is the evaporator fan motor:
Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Can get from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
UNPLUG fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.

Refrigerator i not cooling. Do not feel any air moving on either side.

You access the fan in the freezer section towards the bottom half. there is a thin metal panel covering the fan and evaporater coils. Take out the shelves and then remove the screws to the bottom section starting approx halfway down the back of the freezer wall there you will find the evaporater fan.

My dryer is tumbling but not blowing air hot nor cold

then you would have a broken fan blade.

because the motor that turns the drum is also the motor that turns the fan blade to blow the air.

open the rear portion of the dryer and you can find the fan blade, made of plastic, being covered by the vertical duct that came from the drum. then the outlet of the fan assembly goes out to the exhaust of the dryer.

another could be problem would be a clogged exhaust duct. check the exhaust duct or the hoce that is attached to it. see to it that it is clean and no blockade.

tnx 4 using fixya,
