Question about LG Refrigerators

1 Answer

I HAVE AN LG REFRIGERATOR MODEL LFC25760ST WITH FRENCH DOORS. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE LIGHTS INSIDE THE REFRIGERATOR ARE STAYING ON WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOORS. I THOUGHT THAT IT MIGHT BE THE SWITCH, BUT THERE IS TWO SWITCHES ONE FOR EACH DOOR. THE SWITCHES DOES NOT SEEM TO BE STUCK THEY MOVE IN AND OUT WITH NO PROBLEMS. I AM NOT SURE IF THERE COULD BE ANOTHER CAUSE FOR THIS PROBLEM.

HI. Testing must be preformed, in order to confirm the damage. The damage is, most likely, internal within one, or both of the switches circuits. follow the procedure below to test both switches.


The interior lights in most refrigerators, and the fan in some, are controlled by a door switches. When the door is closed, the switch is depressed and the interior light goes off and the fan resumes normal operation. If the door is misaligned or the switch malfunctions, the refrigerator may become warm as a result of the non-operation of the evaporator fan and the heat generated by the interior light. Test the switches for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should change from a reading of infinity to zero when the probes touch the terminals. With the probes still touching the terminals depress the switch, the reading should change back to infinity. If it does not pass both of these tests, the switch should be replaced. Test each switch individually. replace one, or both, if needed.


NOTE_ The in/out motion dose not confirm a working switch circuit. A failed internal circuit can be damaged, even if the switch is movable,and seems normal. This is why testing is needed. It may look normal, but the internals may be damaged. The light is only controlled by your door switches. there are no other problem areas, in your case. the switches are the culprit. Check the wiring, as well. It could be as simple as a loose wire on the switch contacts.
as well.

You have a bad door switch at the top hinge cover. More than likely, a wire has come loose. Can't tell which one since there are 2 of them. You will need to disconnect the wires and check with a ohm meter.
Good luck.

LG has issued a service bulletin about this problem. You need to call LG or the ratailer you bought it from and tell them what's going on...the entire cost of the repair (parts and labor) should be covered....at least it was the last time I did one for a customer.

We have a Lg LFC25760SW fridge and the lights stay on in side the fridge


LG had a circuit board malfunction with many french door models with fridge lights staying on with the door closed. the bulb lens usually overheats; deforms; and falls off. the plastic frame surround is warped too. the bulb sockets are darkened too. if this is the case, call LG and they will usually repair this overheating issue for free. you can just unscrew the bulbs for the meantime.
