The unit was built bt LG. It is a computer controled unit and the timer is built into the main control board on back of the unit. However, the most likely cause of the broblem is the defrost terminator located on the evap on the upper right hand corner. Also, try unpugging the unit it will reset the computer board. You will also have to defrost the unit.

This doesn't sound good does it?
The good news is that the compressor at the back, is probably fine, it's just waiting for the signal to turn on.
First, try adjusting the controls from minimum to maximum to see if you can get any life out of it.
If you have no power to the display, please state this.
If it does function - but not properly, please state this.
If there is no action at all, I suspect there is a fault on the main control board, or the motor run capacitor is faulty. With a faulty capacitor, you may get a 'click' when first turned on, and the compressor will buzz or get warm without actually cooling.
Hopefuly this will help, but please get back with more information.

THIS IS A DEFROST PROBLEM EITHER THE THERMOSTAT OR DEFROST TIMER IS BAD! THE THERMOSTAT IS LOCATED BEHIND THE WALL IN THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT ATTACHED TO THE COILS TO KNOW IF ITS BAD IF WILL HAVE A RAISED SPOT ON THE BACK LIKE ITS BUSTING OPEN CHECK THAT

SOURCE: Freezer compartment ice build-up
too defrost just open the doors for a day with the unit unplugged. as far as why it is frosting up check door seals make sure they are all good and seal it up well and that should take care of it.
