Question about LG LRFD22850 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator French Door
I don't hear the fan any more could that be the problem?
I did this and it worked great (so far - 3 days now...). It took me a while to figure out, so here are some tips.
The panel is inside the freezer, the back wall. You should take off the door, the ice maker, all the shelves and the left rail to get it out. It will then lift up and pull forward.
I removed 3 bolts on either side of the door to remove it -- not sure if that's best/easiest, but it worked fine.
You need to remove all the shelves and the center piece that drops from the freezer ceiling and sits on 2 metal rails -- it provides the slider for the shelf on the right. Lift it up from the two metal rails and slide the bottom to the right to dislodge it. The top just fits into a depression in the ceiling of the freezer and the bottom has notches that line up with the metal rails. The metal rails pop up -- just lever a bit with a slotted screw driver on one end.
There are 3 phillips head screws that hold the left rail (whatever the thing is that the door slides on). Remove those and pull away from the wall and forward. There are two tabs at the back of the rail that will pull free with a tug.
The ice maker has 2 screws on top, one below and is plugged in. You only need loosen the top screws, then remove the bottom one and pull the plug free (which was kind of hard). The plug is in an insert in the back panel and I just left it in place and removed the insert from the back panel using a slotted screw driver in the small gaps around the edges. Lift the ice maker up and off the top screws and it's out.
There's one screw holding the middle of the back panel on -- remove that and pull up and forward to remove the panel. Make your cut and reverse all this and you're good to go.

These units did have a frosting issue that was caused by the main board, it has been corrected. The ice build up that you are experiencing is caused by ice forming on the back panel. The insulation creates a little gutter there where water is getting trapped. When you remove it, if you take a knife and cut the insulation on an angle, this will allow the water droplets to flow down to the drain and you will never have this problem again. It is possible that the fan may have gotten damaged and it may need replacing.

Error code FF means that the freezer fan motor has stopped running. It is possible that a large block of ice is stopping the fan from turning. You will need to remove the back panel to access the freezer fan and remove the ice. Once that is done, you will need to call a qualified LG technician to have it checked out. It may need a replacement control board due to a defrost issue.

I had this problem. On the top of the bottom freezer is a little cap. pry it off, dig around in the styrofoam until you find the defroster sensor (a little capsule attached to a wire). Gently coax it into the freezer and snap it into the clip where it should have been in the first darn place. Replace the little cover. This will fix that frost problem as well.

Where is the back panel. On the back inside the unit or at the back of the unit??

I had the same error code. The problem was that the fan had frozen. I defrosted the fridge/freezer completely (it was ok for me cause I have a spare fridge). Your problem possibly is a frozen fan problem
