Sounds like ice built up on the evaporator coils inside the freezer. thus hindering air flow to the refridgerator section. Is there ice build up in the freezer? This is assuming the temperature control didn't get changed inadverttily.

Hope this helps

Check to see if you have frost on the back panel of your freezer in your fridge. If you do your coil is frozen over and you'll have to defrost your freezer. I just did mine cause mine wasn't cooling properly on my fridge side.

SOURCE: fridge side is not cooling or very low

I got the model 106.56676501 that has the same problem. The freezer side is working good with ice maker but the fridge side does not cold. When I defrosted, it worked for couple of days. Then the problem came back. Would you please give me advise? Can I fix it by myself?
Thank You
Michael

You have done a good job of attempting to diagnose by process of elimination, but this is a more complex system. I have provided some links below to assist you in diagnosing your problem. Links courtesy of www.repairclinic.com.

1. Ascertain that the evaporator fan is operational. This may be controlled by the Door Switch, (No.4) and could cause the fan to be inoperable.
2. Ascertain that the Fresh Food compartment light goes off when door is closed.
3. The air diffuser may be faulty by not controlling the air flow from the freezer properly

Tip: Always maintain dual temperature control settings at equal or +/- 1 setting position.

How refrigerators work:

You will need to verify operation of the following components listed below:

1. Evaporator fan motor
2. Air diffuser assembly
3. Light switch for refrigerator/freezer light
4. Door switch

SOURCE: Fridge not cool enough but frosty at the back

Since you are getting frost in you frost free refrigerator, tell me that the defrost circuit has a problem. It is made of a defrost timer/module, defrost heater and defrost thermostat. What should happen is that the defrost timer should periodically turn off the compressor for about 30 minutes and turn power to the defrost heater via the thermostat. The heater is attached to the evaporator coil and melts any frost build up on those coils.

It sounds like the defrost circuit has not been working for a while because the ice build up is not allowing the air to circulate around the coils to cool the refrigerator. The typical failures to the defrost circuit are the defrost timer motor fails to advance, or the defrost heater burns out. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: fridg is not cooling.frezer working real good.

Open the freezer compartment and listen for the fan motor if you don't hear it but you can hear the compressor running. youll need to first make sure that the door switch is working( If the lights go off when you press the button it should be okay). You'll need to remove the back panel and inspect the coils if frosted over evenly and the fan still is not working give the fan a little push. if it will not go, you need to see if it has voltage if so, replace the fan. If no check the defrost terminator which only on amanas will keep the fan off. In this case replace the defrost terminator(it look about like 5 quarters, with 2 wires clipped through the evaprator coils in back of freezer.

http://www.manualslib.com/manual/692499/Lg-Gr-642apa.html
This is the link to the manual for your model. The beeping fault codes are covered starting on page 19 and get into detail by page 22. There are a number of triggering events or causes so you should read about them and try what the manual describes to try and turn the beep off.

No temp lights on fridge or frezer panel.light on in frezer not in fridge


Try cycling the power. Switch of the fridge at its isolator (or wall socket), leave for 1 minute and switch on again.

Consult your owner manual for guidance.

If still under warranty, contact your dealer.

The fridge is not working.the freezer is working.in the freezer the cold air is not coming in the fridge.


fridge basics

the fridge and freezer are seperate compartments they dont share air there is a chemical filled filiment on your fridge u can see it at the back looks like a big grill that chemical is pumped around both fridge and frezer that chemical carrys heat energy it removes the heat from the fridge and frezer to the radiator at the back this radiator gets verry hot whyle your fridge / frezer becomes cold it shuld be 1 compleate system with better fluid flow in the frezer to make it cool faster

ok so the frezer is working but fridge is not it could be a few things 1 fluid not geting round the fridge lack of fluid or 2 a blockage

im no expert but knowing the basic science of fridges is a help i hope this has helped but like i say im not farmiliar with any fridge and models deviate but the science stays the same hopefully this steers u in the right direction

The cooling fans do not run unless the right temperature is reached. The important thing is to find if the compressor is running. If you do not hear a whirring sound when the fridge is powered on, then the compressor has a problem. Generally when you put in storage the refrigent can leak out and needs to be refilled.

If the compressor is running then check the thermostat settings. Might also help if you provide the make and model number of your fridge.

Frezer working fine but fridge not cooling


Mo, open the freezer door and look for the model tag. There should be a manufacture date on the tag. The product has a 2 year complete warranty, 5year parts and labor on the sealed system and 5-12 years parts only. The factory number is 800-222-7820 and maybe able to tell you when it was installed, They may walk you through a couple of items to tell you what was happening.
