My LG Refrigarator with a top freezer and water dispenser is frosting on the freezer and the refrigerator is warm

If there is no cooling at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that the compressor and gas pressure is OK. Now shut off the fridge and leave it powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if ice forms in the freezer then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

The whole fridge compartment is not cooling, but the freezer compartment is working fine!?


If there is no cooling at all , before we go further we must confirm the first step of confirming the compressor and gas pressure. So shut off the fridge and leave it off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge. If there is no ice formation we have a big issue as the compressor and gas must be checked out. If compressor is running check the pressure, get help to test gas pressure. If not you will need to fill up ,If gas pressure is good the possibility of the compressor being inefficient is high. In such a case you must take consensus to estimate and decide, if RPM of motor is low check capacitor.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test from the outside and make your observations so that we come to the solution

Fridge is not cooling


Check compressor is working. If working check freezer is working. If freezer is working with full of ice, check for auto defrost. If not, manually defrost it. In maximum units the main problem is fridge not cooling but freezer working alright. As over ice formed and covered up fan side (Behind Freezer), there won't be cooling in fridge compartment. Thanks.

I have amana DRS2662W- I had turned the defrost timer but now the freezer and the fridge are not cold enough- there is no ice forming, I can hear the compressor and fan behind but not cooling.


You should never need to advance your defrost timer. If your defrost is not working properly, the coil in the freezer compartment will ice up, blocking all airflow. All of your cooling is done there, even the refrig area, so you will never get down below appx. 40-45 degrees.
my first suggestion is to look at the back panel in your freezer for frost/ice build-up. If yes, unplug the unit, open the freezer compartment and let it thaw overnight. If it starts cooling properly, you have a defrost problem. It may be a bad timer(often), thermostat(less frequent), or bad defrost heater(even less).

My candy cbca230 freezer always freezes up and stops cooling the upper compartment. Fan works fine, seems that the fins all block up with ice.


same here. Seems that the heater wires heat up at top of drain tray(bottom of condensor inside at back) but dont heat up at bottom of draining tray so causing ice and not allowing water to drain out to compressor bowl. May be a design fault with the heater wires.

Water is dripping from the freezer into the fridge from above. Ice has formed under sliding freezer tray.( Whirlpool 21- Model# ET21DKXDN04 )


Sounds like the water produced from defrost cycle is the problem. There is a tube designed to carry the water to the compressor compartment where it evaporates. you will need to onclog the tube by taking the back off freezer compartment to access .Under the condensor is a tray that collects the water. There you should see the hole that needs to be blown out. Compressed air works great. Hope this helps.
