Hello there:
There are a couple of reasons why this controle may be not working (or it may be working but not properly)
I will post this solution in 2 seperate posts so you can troublehoot this in detail ok before going right to the chip and associated parts
It's not cool If the refrigerator isn't cool, you need to answer some questions,
Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? If not,unplug the refrigerator for 30 min then plug it back in than reset it. first at the highest setting than slowly turn it counterclock wise to see if it clicks if not the temperature control device itself may be bad and not the chip itself.
the chip rarly fails
Next, see if the compressor motor is running Cooling is poor

    Evaporator coils

    Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost
    build-up on the evaporator coils. You can't see these coils without
    removing a panel on the inside of your freezer. A sure sign that there
    is a build-up is the presence of any frost or ice build-up on the inside
    walls, floor, or ceiling of the freezer. Such a frost build-up usually
    indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door

    The refrigerator is supposed to self-defrost
    approximately four times in every 24 hour period. If one of the
    components in the self-defrosting system fails, the refrigerator
    continues to try to cool. Eventually, though, so much frost builds up on
    the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the
    coils. There may still be a small amount of cooling because the coils
    are icy, but with no air flow over the coils, cooling in the
    refrigerator compartment is quite limited.

    Here's an inexpensive, though inconvenient, way to
    determine if the problem is with the self-defrosting system. Remove all
    of the perishable food from the refrigerator and freezer, turn the
    thermostat in the refrigerator to Off, and leave the doors open for 24
    to 48 hours. (Be sure to have several towels ready in case the melting
    frost and ice causes the drip pan to overflow). This allows the
    refrigerator to defrost "manually." When the frost and ice build-up has
    completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If
    the refrigerator then cools properly, it indicates a problem with one
    of three components in the self-defrosting system:

    The defrost timer

    The defrost thermostat (also called the bi-metal

How to set freezer on LG Bottom Freezer LRFD22850

Hello Fran Miller,

For OPENERS... (my opinion)
always start by setting you temperatures at mid range.

Owners manual... Page 16
Setting the controls 16 - 17 Adjusting control settings...

I get a little PUSHY about FOOD TEMERATURES...
(stored poorly there's no quicker way of poisoning ones self)...

I strongly recommend getting TAYLOR refrig/freezer
THERMOMETERS (like Amazon... cheap = $6 ea).

Let the refrigerator stabilize EMPTY 24 HOURS
Loaded with food (not recommended: 72 hours).

Give the refrigerator time to cool down completely before adding food. It is best to wait 24 hours before you put food into the refrigerator. The mid-settings indicated in the previous section should be correct for normal household refrigerator usage. The controls are set correctly when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is firm.

If the touch control doesn't respond then it's most likely bad. They don't normally act up, they either work or they don't.
