Question about LG Refrigerators

Open Question

We got an LG LTC22350 SW refrigerator/freezer about 2 months ago. There was a build-up of frost on much in the freezer portion within a few days and at first we wondered if it was not a frost-free. After about a month, the temperature in the refrigerator portion went up to almost 60 degrees even though we had it set to the coldest setting. We felt that perhaps the freezer had been too full (the vents were frosted pretty much shut) so we turned it off, thawed it out and then turned it back on a day or so later. Since then we have kept very little in the freezer (although what is in there is frosty!) and have been very careful to keep the vents in both the refrigerator and freezer portions free. During the last few days, the temperature in the refrigerator has been rising again. On the coldest setting, the temperature is still about 45 degrees. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Heavy Frost in Freezer

You have an air leak coming from the light switch in the ceiling of the freezer.  You will need to call LG for resolution on this problem.  I believe there is a fix for this problem.

IS THE BACK OF THE FREEZER CLEAR ICE OR WHITE FROST?
IF IT IS WHITE FROST, THERE IS A FAILURE OF THE DEFROST CYCLE. THREE COMPONENTS NEED TO BE CHECKED. THERE IS A DEFROST TIMER, HEATER AND BI-METAL. THE HEATER AND BI-METAL ARE LOCATED BEHIND THE BACK WALL OF THE FREEZER WHERE THE FROST IS BUILDING UP. IF IT IS A WHIRLPOOL, THE TIMER IS LOCATED IN THE FRESH FOOD COMPARTMENT WITH THE COLD CONTROL. LOOK FOR A HOLE THE SIZE OF A DIME IN THE CONTROL HOUSING. THERE IS A SMALL DIAL IN THERE THAT CAN BE ADVANCED WITH A SCREWDRIVER.
ADVANCE IT UNTIL YOU HEAR A STRONG CLICK AND THE
REFRIGERATOR SHUTS OFF. THAT WILL BE IN THE DEFROST CYCLE. WAIT ABOUT TEN MINUTES AND LISTEN FOR SIZZLING IN THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT. ALSO LOOK FOR A RED/ORANGE GLOW IN THE FREEZER. IF THAT HAPPENS, THE HEATER AND BI-METAL ARE O.K.
REPLACE THE TIMER. IF NOT, TAKE THE BACK PANEL OFF THE FREEZER AND CHECK THE HEATER AND BI-METAL WITH A VOLT-OHM METER. REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE PART.
ON G.E. REFRIGERATORS, SOME HAVE THE TIMER LOCATED BEHIND THE TOE PLATE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE REFRIGERATOR. ON OTHER REFRIGERATORS, IT IS LOCATED INSIDE THE COMPRESSOR COMPARTMENT TUCKED BACK IN A CORNER.

My freezer is on the bottom and it keeps building up frost. Any idea why? Just started about 2 weeks ago.


for frost to start appearing in a bottom freezer, indicates that the draw seal is not sealing properly or the draw is not closing fully
after 3 years it may need an adjustment of the rollers and slides to get the draw sealing better again
call in a service technician as it should be still under warranty

I'm getting frost and ice build up on the bottom and back of the fridge compartment on my LG French door fridge.


To me This is on all Makes and models build up of frost means warmer humid air is entering into colder air this will cause a frost build up from entrance of warm air coming in so your looking at your air flow in all compartments of your ref,freezer so on.
blocked air will give false readings to sensors when compartment is asking for lower temp colder temp will be noticed.
bad or obstructed door seals door not closing properly
Follow your frost line it will point the way.

Bought a brand new LG bottom freezer fridge a couple of months ago. I like the refridgerator part to be cold, so we keep the fridge temp on 6 (1-7 are temp choices. 7 being the coldest). We had the freezer...


If designed as most combination units, one of the two controls influences the temperature directly, the other only determines how much of the generated cold air is allowed to enter the other compartment. The typical arrangement is that setting the freezer temperature determines how often often the compressor runs; the other diverts a portion of the cold air into the refrigerator side.
Using the common thermometer for cold temperatures (~$5 US), adjust the freezer temperature for 0 to -5 degrees F (the often recommended temp.), then the other control for the desired refrigerator temperature, suggested as 35-45 F. This is the most common practice.
If you cannot balance them the way you want, reverse the procedure, setting for refrigerator temp., then freezer.

If the defrost heating element, defrost timer or evaporater fan weren't working, you'd develop a block of ice on the evaporator. Is the compressor running? If it is, it might have bad valves from the frost buildup scenario. Liquid refrigerant could have gotten to the suction valves. The sealed system should have a five year warranty. Might be time to call a pro

Freezer building up with frost


Sounds like the defrosting system has a faulty timer/board, faulty heating element or bad electrical connections to these components.

Fan runs all the time - freezer frost build up


The fan should cycle during recovery period after you opened the unit and then shut off. Make sure there is plenty of space around the unit for ventilation. If you've done this and you said it's 3 months old? Call for warrantee service.

You will get this error code if a sensor does not reach a certain temperature (+8 C, to be precise)within 2 hours of going into a defrost cycle. Increased frequency probably means the defrost build up is causing your refrigerator to run more, which will bring on the defrost cycle sooner, and the error code to repeat sooner. So, it really looks like your refrigerator is not defrosting. Soon, you will have inadequate cooling. A temporary fix to the poor cooling problem would be to unplug the refrig and open the freezer for a day or so to let it defrost on it's own, but the frost will then begin to build up again, resulting in poor cooling, depending on climate and door openings, possible in less than two weeks. Better look for service soon. If you are in the US, you can try http://us.lgservice.com/index_b2c.jsp to find service using your zip code, or call LG at 800-243-0000.

6343ed3.jpg The problem is ice build up on the back wall. The noise you hear is the fan blades hitting the ice. On the back wall water gets trapped, it then builds up over time, and a big ball of ice forms and blocks the fan. Take off the back wall, defrost the build up and cut the insulation off as above. The water will no longer get trapped and the problem will not come back.
