Question about LG LFC25760ST 25 Cu. Ft. Panorama French Door Refrigerator w/ Glide N' Serve Drawer & Internal LED T...

3 Answers

My LG refrigerator door switches work, as evidenced by the display panel turning on and off with pressing both switches, but the internal lights just stay on, even when the switches are both pressed. Is there some solid state relay or other relay that drives the internal light bulbs? If so, it may have failed. I don't have a schematic, so can't find the facts.

    I have gotten the schematics for this refrigerator and there is a relay on the control board that feeds the light bulbs.



    The basic problem is one of design. The relay rating is far to small to stand the inrush current of the two 60 Watt light bulbs used in the top of the refrigerator. LG should do some modification to fix this problem.



    One could change the relay for one with a higher current rating. Since my relay was not totally stuck, I chose to reduce the power of the light bulbs. I have changed the bulbs to ones of the same physical size but with 23 Watt ratings. It is not very bright inside, but I have had no further problem of the relay sticking.



    If your refrigerator is repaired, with no change in the components used, you probably will have the same problem again in a few years.



    There is the same size relay operating the light bulb in the freezer section, but there is only one 60 Watt bulb, and the relay seems to stand that, at least I have had no problem there.

    The real problem is based on a distinct engineering error at LG or whoever really makes this refrigerator. The refrigerator lights have a startup surge that is about 4 or 5 times the ability of the small relay on the circuit board which relay turns the lights on and off.

    After many cycles of on and off; the relay contacts start to weld when they shut. When this is bad enough, they really stick in the On condition of the lights, etc.

    There positively is the relay, and it positively is too small.

    I replaced my light bulbs with much less powerful bulbs and the relay now survives. There isn't much light, but they don't stick on and melt plastic and risk fire.

    I can turn off the door alarms in Sabbath mode however, this turns off the internal light as well. I've tried pressing the fast freeze button for five seconds. This doesn't work. Could you please tell me how to turn off the door alarms only. Thank you.

Same problem with my LG. Mine almost started a fire and melted a good part of the interior, I'm glad I was home to catch it. I called LG and they are fixing it for free, even though it is out of warranty. This makes me think it is a very common problem. Now going from what my repairman has said, it is an issue with a control board inside the fridge. It quits working and the lights no longer shut-off. The only solution is to replace the board. My repairman is going above and beyond for me and replacing the melted parts (obviously), the light housings, the door switches and wiring, the main board, and I think another board for the lights. Try calling LG and telling them the problem, they may help you out too. There really should be a recall on this, but I guess it will take a serious fire before that happens :(

Nope, it does not have any relay on it, It has a fuse I would say, check it, it might be grounded, possible cause (water vapor or moisture) just take it off and clean it dry...

Hope this will help

Samsung rb215abbp won't stop beeping. I recently switched the door from the right side to the left. Now my fridge says 66 degrees but is cold. Light is on only when I unplug and plug it back in.


Fridge keeps beeping or buzzing: The following is for Frigidaire models but others can be addressed similarly.

Several Frigidaire refrigerator models have an electronic control panel on the freezer door the owner can use to adjust the internal temperature, dispense ice and water and receive notification about issues such as the need to replace a water filter. The refrigerators also emit a beep for various actions and as an occasional alarm. Determining what causes the beeps necessitates some troubleshooting.
Temperature Controls ·A Frigidaire refrigerator's display panel blinks when the control panel is touched to set temperature controls. After pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, press the arrow buttons within five seconds to increase or decrease the desired temperature. If you do not press the arrow buttons within five seconds after pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, the refrigerator beeps to indicate the current setting will stay in place.

Door Open ·When you leave the refrigerator or freezer door open, the refrigerator beeps. Also, the "Door Ajar" indicator illuminates on the appliance's display panel. Shutting the door and pressing "Alarm Reset" stops the beeping and turns off the "Door Ajar" indicator light.
·The Frigidaire refrigerator has a control lock feature that prevents use of its control panel or dispensers when the unit is locked. When the control lock is active, a beep sounds when a keypad or dispenser is pressed. Release the control lock by pressing the "Control Lock" icon for three seconds. A beep will sound, and the icon's light will go out.
Power Reset ·A power reset is occasionally necessary if the Frigidaire refrigerator's control panel does not work normally or a reset function on the keypad does not work. A power reset involves disconnecting power to the refrigerator by unplugging its power cord from the electrical outlet, waiting 30 seconds and plugging the power cord back into the electrical outlet. When the control panel resets, a beep sounds. If the refrigerator beeps even after a power reset and the beeps' source is not known, contact Frigidaire.
