Most likely the Ice Maker fan motor is blocked with ice and the fridge needs to thaw for 4 to 6 hours. There is also a good possibility that your ice maker fan motor is burning out. This needs to be addressed immediately before there is mother board damage.

How do I clean drip pan on LG French door refrigerator?


Does it not sit on top of the compressor? Behind the unit, at the base. Check for spilt milk, too.

Tip

Surge protector for refrigerator power


I installed a surge protector on the electrical outlet that powers my LG refrigerator as recommended by the repair tech after my first warranty repair (refrigerator fan and main board). The board that was replaced actually had a burn mark on it where one of the components had fried.
Standard computer plug strip surge protectors may not be large enough for a refrigerator load. I used a plug-in surge protector that is made for use in offices for copiers and large printers since it has the capacity to handle a refrigerator load. Make sure it is one that does not cut off power so the refrigerator will continue to operate if the protector is overloaded or fails.

I just purchased a Samsung French Door Refrigerator...how do I get rid of the plastic odor?...I've put baking soda in the refrigerator and the freezer but the odor persists.


You can try activated charcoal to absorb the plastic odor. You'll find charcoal in the aquarium section of your ""big box" stores. Depending on how it's packaged, you might have to cut a **** in the package to expose the charcoal. You DO NOT want to use Barbecue charcoal! You can also wipe down the entire interior with a baking soda solution and then rinse.We had the same problem with our Samsung French Door and it was gone within a few days once we began filling it with food and leftovers!
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice.

LG Model LFC23760 (French Doors, bottom freezer) power prob


Unplug fridge.
Open panel on back of fridge (the one at hip height that says Service Panel Only - Do Not Remove, blah blah blah)
See pictures here: http://www.amazon.com/LG-LFC23760SW-French-Refrigerator-White/dp/B00198A5C0/ref=cm_cmu_up_thanks_hdr
Replace fuse with 9A 250V slow-burn fuse. I used a gray fuse harness from Radio Shack so that if the fuse needs to be replaced again I can just pop in a new one without doing the soldering over.
I nuked the original fuse, the end-caps and the wires that went from the end-caps/fuse to the motherboard. I replace those wires with some I scavenged off a fresh thermal fuse (also bought at RS, just needed the wires themselves which seemed to be the same diameter/gauge as the original leads) and ran them from the motherboard to the wire harness.
So far, so good!
Good luck to you.

Odor from outside of Refrigerator


pull out the fridge and remove the back panel, and clean that area. Make sure no food is stuck under the fridge also. A rotten piece of fruit or other food, once under there, will smell until it totally decomposes. We have seen this before. Hope this helps!
