Question about LG LRBN20510WW Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

LG GR431SCA fridge will not cool properly and top half of freezer and ice maker section will not freeze. The bottom half of the freezer (below the shelf) freezes well, but above the shelf and the ice cube making section will not freeze food at all. The fridge does not cool properly, it is coolish, but far from normal. I noticed that the vent in the fridge (that leads from the freezer) does not blow out any cold air when I have the fridge door open, yet when I open the freezer door at the same time as having the fridge door open lots of cool air blows from this vent into the refridgerator section. I also noticed that the unit makes quite a few "knocking" noises. Please help!

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

    Thank you Heatman 101.
    I'm in Australia and it's pretty cold here at the moment so I will cross that one off the list as a potential problem..
    I will have a look at your other suggestions.
    Thank you so much for your post :-)

Continuous beeping


Either any door is not closed properly or door sensor is not working,its not sensing the door closed.Or the problem is no defrost.The defrost is causing over ice in fridge or freezer section.

Reset the refrigerator by disconnecting it from wall outlet for 12 hours,then reconnect and see if still the same problem is there.

On some cases its issue with fan not working.There are two fans,one in freezer section and one in fridge section.If either of the fan is not working the controls will flash.

Fridge not cooling... Freezer is fine


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Fridge not working properly on kenmore bottom freezer model 596.7


I have a similar problem, although I have no cooling in the fridge section. Had a repair man indicate that the electrical panal(pcb board) needs to be replaced. It is on order ($200). Sure hope that is the issue. To me, it appeared that the freezer fan(which cools the fridge) was not working. Whether that is the result of a faulty electrical panal is yet to be determined. Good luck!
