Question about LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Lights stay on inside refrigerator

Well my lights did not go out either one day and also melted the inside of the refrigerator. Apparently this is becoming a common problem in so much that LG has already developed a soultion. But LG will not assist in paying for the solution. I had to contact Sears for the repair even thought the refrigerator was purchased at Home Depot. The soultion is a new wiring harnest and a sensor that will cost approximately $412.00 dollars ( parts and labor to repair).

I believe this should be a recall due tot he fire hazzard.

Even though I have found a statement (I think it was in the LG troubleshooting FAQS on line) that the lights will shut off after a period of time to prevent the problem you encountered, I have heard of this problem enough times to worry about it. So I replaced the 60 watt bulbs in my refrigerator with 25 watt appliance bulbs just in case. They provide more than enough light and do not get as hot when on. It took a while to find them. They are made by Philips and were at Home Depot but not always in stock.

I have a GE side by side refrigerator, with an icemaker in the door. The refig is slightly less than 6 years old. I have been out of town for a few days, but today opened the door to get something out...


Seriously? Mine just did the same thing today. The electric on the inside is fine. No cooling. there is a code blinking HRS on the inside. the ice and water were working intermittently the past couple of weeks. wtf?

I found a post describing the exact thing I have going on but it was from 3 years ago.

Inside lights do not go off when doors are closed


Good day,
All refrigerators have light switches, that depress and shut off the lights when the doors are closed.
First, make sure the bulbs are left out. I would replace all of the light switches because of the newness of the machine.
They are easy enough to replace, and you can purchase them at any appliance parts house or a Sears service facility.
They pry out, and may be destroyed on removal. Unplug the machine.
After connecting the wires, the new ones just push in.
To test, close the doors slowly. The lights should go out just before the door closes.

Some states have what is called "Implied warranty of serviceablity". Which means what should a consumer reasonably expect irregardless of the warranty limits.
You might want to contact Sears and express your opinions regarding this matter, and if they'll consider making you whole.
The above paragraph are my thoughts only. They in no way reflect the law, Sears policy or liability or this site's policy.

LG Design defect - Light stayed on and melted the fridge.


yes, contact LG for this known problem. it's a circuit board defect. the tech should replace both bulbs w/lower wattage, plastic bulb lens, lens surround and bulb sockets themselves. be sure to have your fridge model # and serial # handy.

Kenmore Elite Trio Frige...Beeping three times in a row suddenly


this unit has a history of the light circuit failing and it will cause the lights to either stay on or off. if they stay on, it will melt the housing around the upper bulb area. it has a recall and should be covered by sears for no charge. it is the control board failure and has a sticking relay for the light circuit, needs board replaced.
the 3 beeps are the unit thinking it has a door open. turn off the alarm on the door control board and call sears 800 # for repair.
