LG Model LFC23760 (French Doors, bottom freezer) power prob

Fridge appears to have no power. It is plugged in to a working outlet; all fuzes are ok in the fuzebox. No lights in the refrigerator, and no cooling. Is there a fuze in the fridge, or a place where the power might be easily disconnected?

Unplug fridge.
Open panel on back of fridge (the one at hip height that says Service Panel Only - Do Not Remove, blah blah blah)
See pictures here: http://www.amazon.com/LG-LFC23760SW-French-Refrigerator-White/dp/B00198A5C0/ref=cm_cmu_up_thanks_hdr
Replace fuse with 9A 250V slow-burn fuse. I used a gray fuse harness from Radio Shack so that if the fuse needs to be replaced again I can just pop in a new one without doing the soldering over.
I nuked the original fuse, the end-caps and the wires that went from the end-caps/fuse to the motherboard. I replace those wires with some I scavenged off a fresh thermal fuse (also bought at RS, just needed the wires themselves which seemed to be the same diameter/gauge as the original leads) and ran them from the motherboard to the wire harness.
So far, so good!
Good luck to you.

Compressor wont start up fan in freezer stays on


        • Pull the fridge out from the wall and check to make sure it is plugged in.
        • Unplug the fridge and plug in a spare appliance to see if the outlet is working. Check the circuit breaker to the house see If the outlet is not working to see if there are any fuses that are flipped.Inspect the electrical cord for the refrigerator for damage, such as from a mouse or pet chewing on it.
    • Open the fridge to see if the light turns on. The power to the unit is fine if the light turns on, which means something else is the cause of the starting issue.
    • Turn up the thermostat on the inside of the fridge if it is set to a low setting. Turn it all the way up and listen for the condenser motor to start. Have the unit serviced by a professional if it does not May be internal problem with component

Hi, I have a Kenmore top freezer refrigerator model number 363.79567990. The freezer stopped working and I found out that I had to press the "Reset" button on the outlet while it was unplugged...


It sounds like you've plugged your fridge into a GFI (ground fault interrupter) outlet.

The National Electrical Code (NEC) article 210.8 A (6) says in dwelling units, only those outlets in a kitchen (I'm assuming your fridge is in the kitchen - right?) "where the receptacles are installed to serve the countertop surfaces" must be provide ground fault protection aka "GFI outlet". Unless your town, city, county or state has laws that supersede the NEC, you should have the outlet changed to a standard, grounded outlet to prevent the nuisance tripping you are experiencing when the cooling compressor is trying to start. A refrigerator is not a counter surface appliance, and therefore does not require GFI protection.

The other outlets are fed from this outlet, so when you connect the fridge to another outlet on the circuit, the same GFI plug trips again. When you replace the GFI plug with a "regular one, the GFI plug should be installed in another outlet to provide the GFI protection needed in the kitchen - as described in the NEC above. If you are not familiar with how to do this, please, call a licensed electrician to do this very important job for you. Be safe & be smart.

I hope this helps!

Refrigerator wouldn't cool


Hi!!

Is there any light coming on on the board?? If not, ckeck for Tripped Breaker or blown fuse, if OK, check propane tank.

Take the grill under the fridge or to the left of it, (4 screws), that's where the refrigerator's power outlet is, check for 120v or use an extension cord and plug fridge to it. If fridge works, check for short or loose wire from outlet to breaker panel..

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck!!

Fridge was working OK this morning, came home and teh fridge is completely not working - no compressor, no lights. Check the house breakers and all OK. Even plug into another outlet and still does not...


SOUNDS LIKE AN ELECTRONIC CONTROL BOARD ISSUE. SOME TIMES UNPLUGGING THE REFRIGERATOR FOR ONE MINUTE AND THEN PLUG IT BACK IN WILL WORK 20 PERCENT OF THE TIME. IT MAY WORK FOR ONE HOUR TO SEVERL YEARS IF THIS WORKS. THIS IS COMMON WITH FRIGIDAIRE PRODUCTS.

No power to refrigator check plq and it is hot Light in sisde dont even work


It could be a loose connection where the power cord is connected to the refrigerator inside or a bad power cord. If that doesn't solve the problem you may consider calling a repair person.
Good Luck,

Refrigerator has lost power no eletric to inside light, not cooling not freezing


First , check if is power in the outlet where the fridge is plugged in by plugging something you know works (table light , radio,etc.) , if it doesn't work , means there's not power at the outlet what could be a trpped breaker , burnt fuse , burnt or loose wire at the outlet, or a bad outlet ; but if you got power in the outlet , probably the fridge cord or its plug are bad.

Our power went out for a few minutes yesterdat and since then our refrigerator and freezer aren't working. What could cause this problem? -Thanks.


first of all I would check the outlet where your fridge is plugged in to make sure the power surge didn't affect it. maybe plug in a lamp. if it is ok, and the fridge will not start at all, i would check the relay/overload on the compressor as it may have been compromised by the power surge when the power came back on. these components start the compressor which in turn starts the cooling/freezing of your fridge. hope this helps.

Fridge and freezer too warm after cleaning


I guess by now you have resolved this.. If you need help please alert me..

If this is unresolved, can you tell me if the compressor runs? According to the Jen air manual I downloaded, you shud be able hear a number of sounds from the fridge, at different stages eg defrost, cooling etc. Obviously you checked the temperature controlls? Door seals Ok? Power,is the light on.. Even if there appears to be power, pls change the power outlet and run the fridge from a different source. Pls advise if you still have problems. Rgds,

Not cooling


- Check if there power is a supply by opening the door of fridge, if there is a light then there is a supply. But no light check the circuit breaker. Or try another outlet for testing. If your fridge is digital control and there is some error display, then reset the error.
- Check the thermostat setting if set to high cool, and check the compressor at the back of the unit if running, if not there is something wrong to your control or compressor itself, if the compressor is operating and no cool at all maybe your unit is out of refrigerant, please call a qualified technician.
