Hi,

This can be caused by the condenser running hot due to being dirty or the fan not running. See the link below for details on how to clean and check this.

Most modern refrigerators have heaters around the gasket to keep frost and condensation from forming. What you're seeing may be normal.

Gasket between frig and freezer is darkening due to very hot surface on divider between sections


If it is that hot you really need to get this checked out ASAP. It could become a fire hazard.

the tubes behind refrigerator are suppose to be hot.sounds like a defrost problem.turning up thethermostat will only make compressor run longer.cold air is made in freezer then gets moved over to the fridge side.your evaporator is more likely iced up.

REPLACING ICE TRAY ON LG FRIG


remove one screw on front left of ice maker, loosen two others-one in back and one on right, the ice maker will slide out. unhook wiring harness and the whole thing comes loose, couldn't figure out how to dismantle it but once I had it out of frig I let it warm up enough so the plastic would bend enuff to get it out.

Freezer works but frig is not cooling


I don't know this particular frig, but evidently the defroster doesn't work. Frost buildup has blocked the flow of cold air.

There is a defrost timer, under the frig, accessible from the front. You can turn it with a screw driver. Turn it till you hear a click. If the timer hasn't been turning, that should turn on the defroster, a heating element nested among the freezer coils. Wait half an hour and if it is defrosting, water should be dripping into the drip pan underneath the frig. If so, then replace the defrost timer and you're good to go.

If that doesn't make it defrost, then the problem is probably the defrost thermostat, in with the freezer coils. When the frig defrosts, the defrost heater stays on until the defrost thermostat gets warm. It should be open circuit while warm. But if it is open circuit while cold, it is bad and is the cause of your defrost problem.

If you open up the freezer coils, use a hair dryer to defrost. That is safer than hot water.

Hope you can fix it.

Freezer freezes OK, frig compartment doesnt get cold


Does the unit only have one compressor (black round object on back of unit). If yes then sounds as though you have lost some refrigerant (just enough to keep the freezer happy). If no (ie two compressors) check if both compressors hot. If both hot then have major problem if one cold then have a thermostat gone. Personally I think you have lost gas from your description, if so then you are looking at a dead fridge freezer. Hope this is of some help.

This will get warm. If very hot check and clean coils in front, underneath. Also check fan behind rear panel. It should be turning when the unit is running. Also check for door not closing properly.
