Question about LG French Door Cabinet Depth Refrigerator 21 Cu. Ft. - LRFC21755

3 Answers

LG refrigerator makes loud noise and then stops running.

The frig makes a loud grinding noise that comes from the freezer. Sometimes the frid just stops, with error codes, and I have to cycle the power.

Seems related to humidty as I can usually make the noise go away by blowing warm air in the vents at the back of the freezer, melts ice on a motor or fan?

    Same problem of icing. LG is aware of this and I understand that they have redesigned the circuit board to delay 15 minutes before restarting the freeze cycle to help avoid the problem. Now the trick is to get LG to supply the updated circuit board.

    LG Refrigerator model LFD 25860, bottom freezer is a lemon. I purchased it 1 1/2 yrs ago and from the first day it was delivered to my home there was problems. It started with the water despenser, a couple of weeks later it was the ice maker, than a month after that it was the freezer. Ice build up and not cooling enough. Now only after 1 1/2 yrs and after paying $2,000 for this refrigerator it stopped working, it broke. I have had serveral repair men come in and try and repair this Junk and it keeps breaking down, now it broke completely. I will never buy an LG product again, it was my first and it will be my last. I have contacted LG customer service and they are not willing to help. Basicly their attitude is , it is my problem not theirs.

You are seriously frozen up. Defrost the unit completely. Then, be aware that 'window shopping', leaving uncovered liquids in the box and poor door sealing (too heavy a load on the door ... too much on shelves) can cause condensation. Defrost with hot air or leave unplugged and open for about 2 days. You'll see alot of water come out.

OK, loud noise, error code, and poor ice machine performance...I had all three on my 25 cf french door LG frige. After I found out that 'Er FF' was a code for the fan motor, I took out the freezer drawers and found that the panel at the back of the freezer was not seated at the top. It was sagging and the fan motor was not being held up to the exhaust port above was just blowing air in circles instead of through the refrigerator. I was able to push the panel at the top and get it to seat. Now it's MUCH quieter and seems to work better too.

Fridge had been making squeaky high pitched noises for months. Sounded like crickets. Today it was making a very loud grinding noise. Unscrewed rear lower panel and checked the fan-when I stopped the fan blade from turning the noise stopped. So I put some Teflon lubricant on the metal shaft connecting the fan and it is super quiet now.

It would probably be time for a new hard drive. You can try putting it in a plastic back and them put it in the freezer for an hour. Sometimes this gives you enough time to pull the data off. A drive recovery service would be the other option if the information on the drive is very important to you ( or

We noticed the same error ER FF on our display this morning. And the fan was making the same loud-troubled noise.So far I unloaded the ice from the ice maker and turned off the icemaker. The noise stopped,...

If you turned off the ice maker, I suggest you unplug the ice maker connection cord so the frig system is not compromised by any default in the ice maker. Next, unplug the frig from the electric receptacle and wait 5 minutes, then re plug. This many times will allow the control circuit to reset itself and the failure/error codes will usually diappear (if nothing else is wrong).
Note: any time you disconnect power to a frig or air conditioner, always wait 3-5 minutes before restoring power to give the compressor time to settle before forcing it to start again; this makes a big difference some times. Good Luck, Macgivor.

LG Dishwasher making grinding noise then blinking E1 code 10 minutes later

Well done by resolving this problem. The other way to avoid the siphoning problem through the drain hose is adding an air gap valve/connector (available at any hardware store). You can use it even if you don't have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. That will assure that you have the proper height of the drain hose.
Hope this helps!
