You have a deforst problem either the fan in freezer or tstat or heater is not working properly take off the back panel on the inside of the freezer and unplug the machine first and u should see ice build up. after you dfrost the ice with a hairdryer, that you will in my opinion see then plug the machine back in to see if the fan is working if it is it will spin around blowing the air if not replace it if it is then next you would have to do continuity test on tstat and heater make sure you unplug the machine before you do these tests.please remember to rank how this post has helped your appliance situation and if i can answer anything further message me back have a great day

My LG fridge/freezer is approximately 7 years old. It has worked fine until two weeks ago, when I noticed the fridge section wasn't very cold and the freezer only seems to be freezing items on the bottom...


Most of the components are within the fridge unlike the older models and at the bottom of the fridge. It is possible that the fault is related to a thermostat or a auto defrost timer issue.
Since the fridge is not defrosting there is heavy frost that is preventing the fan to blow cold air and cool efficiently .
You will need to check the thermostat, auto defrost timer ,heater to confirm the fault.
Finally the poor pumping of compressor or low gas pressure can also reduce cooling.
check the compressor motor speed, check the capacitor.

Our refrigerator is not cooling at all. The freezer is working fine, but no cool air is getting to the refrigerator section. A couple of weeks ago, this problem happened after the freezer had started...


Some fridges only cool the freezer and an evaporator fan motor moves cool air from the freezer to the fridge side. If this fan doesn't spin very freely then it may need to be replaced. You should also pull out the fridge and see where the drain hose is connected to the inside of the fridge, try pouring hot water down the hose to see if it is open. It may be clogged with a pea or some food or frozen. If your fridge is really full, make sure there is nothing in front of where the evaporator fan blows air into the fridge. Make sure that the adjuster flap is open in the fridge section.

My fridge freezer made by samsung is on the blink


These fridges have an evaporator fan motor on both sides - the freezer and fridge side. The freezer can maintain it's temperature because that fan is working fine. I had the same problem, and replaced the evaporator fan motor on fridge side, and it solved the problem. Also, if your fan motor is not working well, or stops working, the evaporator is prone to ice build up, and will prevent proper cooling. You may want to open up panel on fridge side and see if that's the case. Taking a blow dryer to the evaporator and surrounding area (while fridge is off), or letting it sit for a few hours might solve the problem. Ultimately though, it appears as if these fan motors are prone to failure, and need to be replaced.
