Question about LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

I just took delivery on an LG LMX25984 french door refrigerator. No water is dispensed. Followed the instructions to purge air from the system by depressing the water dispenser arm. I can hear the sound of the dispensor operating, buf after 5 minutes, still no water. I checked again, and yes, there is water in the supply line. I noticed a 12VAC solenoid at the bottom rear of the unit. Did not seem to be energized. Placed a meter on the solenoid connector - no voltage at all. So what conditions must be met for the water supply solenoid to be energized and open up to allow water to flow?

Its called solenoid valve.If the solenoid valve not functioning then check the power /voltage.If there is no voltage then it has to be replaced.but as you said its new then its under warranty.Ask the company to get it replaced.many a times the solenoid gets stuck up.Wiggle the solenoid valve a bit and recheck.If its due to any kind of loose connection. At the back of the unit is the water solenoid. You would see two. One for the icemaker and one for the water dispenser.
If you press the water dispenser pad, there would be one solenoid that would activate. If there is one activating, then check the water tank in the fridge section, this tank could be frozen.
If there is no solenoid that is activating, then you can check the solenoid if it still has resistance reading. If it has no resistance reading, then that is the problem. Replace the solenoid valve.The solenoid is at the back of the unit and you should hear it activate when you press the pad.
Cost of new valve is near to $70.

LG french door no cooling


Pull away from the wall and remove the panel near floor to expose the compressor. Feel the top of the compressor to see if cool, warm or too hot to keep your hand there. Tell me your findings. Is compressor clicking? Is the model number LMX25984 above your post correct?

You might have air in your system. Hold the dispense lever down for several second about every 10 minutes until you have the air purged.

This is probably a service call issue. The lines could be bad. The dispenser could be bad. You will be playing :poke and hope" and buying parts you don't need. The system is complicated and needs to be diagnosed by an authorized tech.

Water is slowly trickling out of water dispenser


This is usually because the water filter on the supply line needs replacing.
If it has not been replaced within 6 months, then this will probably cure it.

  • in case you haven't figured it out by now. open rt side door and top right corner is the filter push the little plastic tab and the housing drops down , a quarter turn counter clockwise and the filter should pull out, reinsert the new filter screwing clockwise and close housing, remember to pull water from dispenser right away you will have let air into system so some sputtering will occur till its purged
