Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

LG refrigerator model LFC23760. Only 2 years old. Died yesterday afternoon. Nothing works, no lights, nothing. Checked the outlook and it is hot. Is there an internal breaker that might have popped that i can easily reset? Fortunately the 20 year old refrigerator in the garage still works!! Any suggestions on where to start appreciated.

You probably have a burnt out fuse. Unfortunately, it is hardwired to the motherboard. LGs solution is to take it to an authorized dealer, they will replace the motherboard for $270 part and labor. The other solution is to take off the panel in the back of the refrigerator unplug the connections from the Motherboard and disconect the it from the 4 corner pins. You will see the fuse at the bottom of the board (mine was definately burnt out). I took it to an electronics shop. They identified the fuse as a 15A / 125 v fast blo. suggested replacing it with 15 A / 125 v slow blo ceramic fuse ($1.25). They also sold me two fuse holder clips. Used soldering Iron after viewing a Utube instructional video to take out the bad fuse and install the clips (took one of the 2 prongs off and had to file the other to fit in hole) with solder. Snapped in the ceramic fuse and reinstallded in back of the refrigerator. Plugged it in and all systems are go!

My LG refrigerator model # LFC 20745SW quit working totally, what could be wrong & is it worth fixing it's 7 yrs old. It's


no one but the technician you get in to diagnose the fault will be able to give you answers to make that decision
with no lights there is no power so the initial indications are that the fix will be less than a new unit
they only become costly it the compressor is unserviceable

No light, nothing


Should have a main pcb control on ether the top our back. On some models it has a replaceable glass fuse. Check it. Please unplug unit when removing the cover to the control.

I looked up your model number. You particular machine allows for wash with the lid open. You nothing happens. On that case I would check the motor capacitor.
