Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Hi we have an LG 232 SBF fridge freezer and the fridge section has recently stopped working. The freezer appears to be ok and there is a very quiet hum coming from what I assume is the compressor/pump unit although this is VERY hot to touch. Thanks in advance

You will need to check the evaporator it may be iced up. Two things may cause this the evaporator fan motor may be bad or the condensate drain could be clogged and causing the water to freeze on the evaporator. When the evaporator gets iced the air can't pass over it and get cold.

When the fridge is not cooling that means the fan are not working or not working properly, need to replace or check if their is an ice bothering the fan to turn. ok

One of the pockets broke on the door of the fridge Pocket(see through plastic,on the door were you put your milk etc...where would i buy this part? this is for the lg frost free gr 232 sbf


Go to this site,...select model number and type it in. Look in the sub-component list for Refrigerator Door Section. You will find a diagram and a parts lits. It will give you an acutual part number associated with that part and if you like you will be able to use that part number to price compare. Most other website parts sellers give you thier part number this is the only one that I know of that will give you an actual part number for that unit. Good Luck!

Ice maker stopped working, plus fridge not cold, but freezer o.k.


I would check that fan motor in the freezer section is running. it distributes cold air from freezer into refrig section also if this motor is running the top portion of freezer will not get cold enough to allow ice production. the motor is easy to repl and is mod# specific you should be able to buy one online.

LG GR727RB Top Freezer ok but bottom fridge is not cool


Hi softwaredude with an LG GR-727R refrig. The occasional build up of water on the bottom of the fresh foods sections tells me that the refrig is going through it's defrost cycle, but that the defrost drain is plugged. If you take the back off the refrig. you will see a plastic tube about 1/2 inch diameter with a few ribs on it going from the top of the compressor compartment to the bottom, which is a defrost water holding / evaporating pan. Look to see if that tube is plugged. If not, it is plugged further up, most likely where the defrost water drains off the evaporator (that the coils behind the freezer wall that do all the cooling). Take that back panel off and use a hair dryer to melt all the frost off. The frost is blocking air flow from the freezer section to the fresh foods section, thus poor or no cooling in the FF section. You should be able to spot where the defrost water is suppose to drain. If the water is not draining out, use a turkey baster with hot water to flush out the drain.

FREEZER SECTION WORKING OK, FRIDGE SECTION NOT WORKING


Check the vents of your fridge side if present, if no air then may be your blower not working or some ice formation that blocks the air(try defrosting). Check also your vents for obstruction or overloaded with stocks.
