Question about Refrigerators
I have a LG refrigerator (Freshmaster No Frost GR 242mf) The freezer section is on the top, It is about 5yrs old It is freezing everything in the fridge section, I have tried all positions on the thermostat control to no avail, I originally had water leaking from fridge department onto floor,
Does the compressor run continually? Will it turn off when the thermostat is turned all the way down?. If it runs all the time it is possible the defrost timer is not working. It is located under the unit where the water tray is. Along one side or even at the front there will be a black plastic box with a shaft coming out that with a flat tip screw driver can be turned only one direction. Try turning it slowly to see if the compressor shuts off. Also mark the shafts position and see if it has changed after a few hours. It should. If not it is bad. If the unit doesn't shut off when the thermostat is lowered all the way, it could be the problem.... Start with the defrost timer first...
