Question about LG LRFD22850 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator French Door

1 Answer

Freezer door does not seal all the way

I have had this Refrig for almost 3 years and have had a few issues along the way but here is the latest. Lots of frost build up and after a closer look, the door does not seal properly. You close it and it popps open from the bottom seal. Is there a way to tighten this or what is the best solution?

Air intake has water in it (vapour) better if you higher altitude away from sea level.as the freezer gets cold it sucjks in warm air as a thermodynamic equilibrium mechanism. Only fix...get NEW seals or new door with new seals. Try thick silicone grease in a tube for cheap messy fix and rub it over the magnetic seals. dont use vasaaline, thats for gays.

Fridge and freezer at 50 degrees with settings on max cold. I can hear compressor cycling and all power is on. Suggestions?


Your Refrig/freezer should be set as follows:

Refrigerators: 36 to 40 degrees. Ideal temp is 37 Fahrenheit. Note: A temp above 42 degrees promotes bacteria.

Freezer: temp should be -5 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit. Ideal temp is 0 degrees.

Then check the door seals around the edges to see if any splits, tears or cracks have messed up the seal. This will cause your compressor to constantly run as it's trying to cool off the warm house is being sucked into the freezer (or Refrig). A sure sign the door seals are damaged is lots of ice in the freezer door area or water pooling in the bottom area of the refrigerator.

Wait about 4 hrs after you readjusted the Refrigerator/Freezer settings so everything settles down. If you still have problems then the coolant may need to be serviced (topped off) or the motor serviced/checked.

Don't procrastinate because a water heater and Refrig/freezer are the 2 largest energy users in your home- they run 24 hrs a day.

Hope this helps...

Refrigerator keeps freezing. Temp stays at about 28 degrees. temp control on door (digital) and no matter how much you turn it up, temp stays below 30. Repair man came out and said seal was bad on...


Most likely one or both of the thermistors are bad. Usually pretty easy to find behind a vented cover about 2" X 1" on the side walls of the refrigerator and the top of freezer (if freezer is on the bottom of the unit)

My KSRS25ILBL03 side by side - the freezer has lots of frost, the bottom of the freezer if full of ice. I removed the ice (hairdryer), found the drain to the bottom pan frozen. Cleared that, & water...


main reason for lots and lots of frost is door seals not tight all round.look along the length of them to make sure and adjust by pulling/pushing into shape,also are the doors level???? would also cause doors not to be airtight.(adjusters/feet are under both outside corners).

Freezer on bottom is frosting up. Refrig was warming. We defrosted for 24 hours, checked the seals and replugged it in 24 hours ago. Already frosting over on the door. Thanks


We had this same problem a few years ago, we ended up having a service tech come to the house. It was the temp control in the fridge that wasn't working due to a broken part. $90 later - no problem since. Not saying it will be the same issue, but a service tech is probably your best solution.
