Question about Refrigerators
I read about a moisture reduction switch on this unit, perhaps it needs tweeking? Scratch that, another blog said it's an external control, then another said it was a temperature control, and I couldn't find any more information on it. I'm inclined to think that there is a sealing or freezer door problem also, since the problem isn't that bad, just a nuisance. Didn't see any reports of a moisture problem on the net, so no suggestions. I'm wondering if the door was slightly obstructed from closing for awhile, allowing too much moist air in? Or perhaps something too warm that emitted humidity.
Found some dissatisfied customers on a lot of blogs, but no report of this exact problem.
Here was one interesting example from lg.com reviews:
"I bought this model 4 weeks ago. It was delivered & set up by the store and never got cold. The store took it back and delivered another unit. Everything on it worked fine, except the icemaker. It never made any ice. so I called for service. They came right away, and ordered some parts. After parts were shipped the service guy opened a compartment in the freezer to replace a fan motor, and found that the motor had been put in without a fan blade. He replaced it and now it works fine. After these 2 problems I really wonder about quality."
This problem sounds like the one you're having, actually:
"We have had many problems with this LF Frig. The technician and a factory rep had to come out several times because of frosting issues. The doors do not seal well. the cold water dispenser stick and water runs on the floor. I am sorry we bought it. We are stuck with it for probably 10 years. I hate it."
Looks like you're right about the doors.
Good luck, and hope that helped. Please rate this answer if it helped you.

If as you have mention that fan serculate good and their in not any defrost problem then,
You have already estimate correctly, their is probably a seal proplem and air entering freezer, probably door magnetic gasket, but also door bending problem so it dous not close proberly.
You can confirm it by air tight sealed the freezer using a secure tape around the door and check it out after 24 hours.
If it the ruber mangetic seal it is rather deficult to be replace and need special experiance.
If the door have a slight bending then you try to udjust a litle bit the door hinges this can help a lot.
