LG French Door Refrigerator with a freon leak "in the cabinet"

Technician said we had a freon leak. Said the compressor would have to be replaced because freon had leaked out, exposing the compressor to the atmosphere. He replaced the compressor, repaired a leak near the compressor in the line, then discovered there was a leak "in the cabinet". He declared it unrepairable and told us LG should replace the refer under their 7 year, sealed system warranty. However, LG will not honor the warranty (long story).
Is this unrepairable? Should I have a different tech look at it (and spend more money) or just junk it and buy a new one (another brand)?

SOURCE: water leaking in refrigerator on shelves, drawers, and under draw

We took the back bottom vent cover off. Clean that area of lint. We than followed the advise given to another posting of a refrigerator link. This has seemed to work for now, time will tell. However we were told most people with Haier refrigerators have problems. Thank you.

SOURCE: Refrig door gasket does not prevent gap when door is closed

Lift up the gasket and look for screws securing the gasket to the door.
Loosen all of these screws a few turns and twist the door in the direction needed to seal.
Hold the door in this position as you tighten the screws.
This can be tricky and sometimes requires multiple efforts.

SOURCE: freezer cold, fridge warm

The small cooling fan in the freezer compartment that sends chilled air to the food side is defective and needs replacement.  Sometimes that are only frozen stuck.

SOURCE: The compressor motor runs for a short time then

you are suppose to have a multi meter and monitor the supply going to compressor, before the overload relay. if the voltage remains while it stop, your overload thus cutting the supply meaning it is overloaded. if the voltage is missing too, the problem is in the thermostat area.

SOURCE: Haier HSB-02-01 Purchasd Nov 2005, sealed system failed Jun 2009

Does this model have a motor-start capacitor? Most compressor motors won't start if the cap has failed, and the over-current will trip every time.

Sorry no good advice on the warranty repair problem.

Testimonial: "There is no capacitor but you prompted me to check the electrical side more closely. We will see. Thanks for the quick and knowlegable advice!"

My side by side running but not freezing or fridge not cooling

can you tell the compressor is running? It's hidden in back or bottom. If you are lucky it may be a bad thermostat, or possibly a defrost timer that has failed. To eliminate bad thermostat, adjust the temperature up and down to see if that is the problem. If you can determine that the compressor is running you may have a freon or refrigerant leak and will need to call a service technician.

Why is my Samsung french door/freezer not working

It is very rare to have a freon leak. It is possible but there are there are things that can cause the refrigerator not to get cold. Is the compressor running. Are the fans running. Is the freezer or refrigerator coils blocked with ice. Usually freon is the last place i look.

Freezer Problem

Compressor may be bad - do you hear motor running??? It may need freon. Airflow may be blocked -- keep area clear just like intake vents on floor, must be kept clear to allow proper air flow.

Someone is trying to sell me a kenmore elite french door fridge. only a couple years old. says everything works fine inluding compressor- except that it needs freon . is this going to be a major and...

Stay away. If it does need freon it means it has a leak somewhere in the sealed system. That can be a very expensive fix. Who diagnosed the problem? May be other issues. If your looking for used go to an appliance dealer to get at least a 30 day warranty. I would not reccomend buying anything that has not been repaired first.

2 year old LG refrigertor doesnt cool inside is warm and the bottom freezer doesnt work either. outlet is ok. the light inside the refrigerator works.

Your run capacitor is bad which is the plug attached to your compressor or you have a leak in the system. If your compressor is not running after you put a capacitor on then your compressor is fried. Good luck. Rate me if I helped you!

Problem in Refrigerator

Hi,most times when the refrigerator is not cooling the problem is usually from the condenser or a leakage in the pipe that carries freon gas from the compressor to the cooling compartment in the unit.
In actual fact,cleaning and refilling the compressor as the service man implied should take care of the problem,but if he now says it requires to be repaired/replaced probably he discovered a great leakage or a fault with the pumping system of the compressor.If he spotted a leakage,tell him to take the compressor to a panel beater to help block the leakage,this will save you money,
But if the problem is complicated than that,you might have to replace the compressor as a lasting solution.
Thanks and take care

My freezer section of an LG frech door is not getting cold enough.

you would have to take the back wall of the freezer of (after it has been running a while) see how much of the evaporator is frosted up if none freon leak or bad compressor if just a little on top then a restriction. if you open it and the whole top above the evap is a huge chunk of ice i would try a dryer filter(its part of the sealed system)
