Question about LG LRFD25850 French Door Refrigerator
Our fridge is approx.2 years old. Several months ago we notice a lot of ice/frost build up at the back of the freezer running along the ice tray and top pull out tray. At the same time the fan was very loud and seemed to run all the time. We took everything out of the freezer and removed all the ice/frost build up. After doing this the fan seemed to quite down and everything seemed ok. Now less than 2 months later,there is frost building up in the back of the freezer again and everytime you open up the top doors the fan sounds like it is winding down. We do not have the ice maker hooked up at this time. Another problem is the "latch" on the top of the right door broke off completely and when we contacted the store we purchased the fridge from they said it wasn't under warranty and they would charge $78.00 just to come out and look at it. They also referred us to a local service rep, but we haven't contacted them yet. The owners manual doesn't say anything about defrosting the freezer or what may be causing this problem. I am thinking this expensive fridge is a very poor design and we wasted a lot of money on it. Any solutions to this problem?
The problem is ice build up on the back wall. The noise you hear is the fan blades hitting the ice. On the back wall water gets trapped, it then builds up over time, and a big ball of ice forms and blocks the fan. Take off the back wall, defrost the build up and cut the insulation off as above. The water will no longer get trapped and the problem will not come back.

Same problem. 22 cf Kenmore refrig. mfg by lg Electronics. Ice forms in the rear of the freezer. Sears service said there are no known prob. referencing to this. Also a Noise that sounds lik a fan with bad bearing when compressor is running. I turned the thermostasts down to 37 and 5 asyou said. Now the fan noise happens only now and the and not all the time

Yes the units are in F. I'll try changing the setting to 5 F and see if that helps. We keep our house around 67.

If it will take 2 months to frost back again then it could be just the thermostat. try to decrease the number setting of your thermostat after you defrosted it again . do what you did 2 months ago then when you turn it on, lower the number setting on the thermostats dial. if you have ial thermostats. if you have digital thermostats then increase the numbers settings. then observe if the compressor would stop and run now. that should minimize the frost build up at the back of the freezer section. if it will still freeze up, replace the thermostats.
