Water is running down inside of my refrigerator

If this is a top freezer with refrigerator on bottom the I would say most likely you have a plugged drain. Remove the back panel inside the freezer by removing the few screws on the back wall and pull the cover off, check the drain hole on the bottom under the evaporator and see if it is iced over or something in it.BE SURE TO UNPLUG REFRIGERATOR BEFORE TAKING OFF THE BACK PANEL INSIDE THE FREEZER AS THE FAN WILL BE RUNNING AND YOU DO NOT WANT TO HIT IT! Good Luck!

Posted a couple of days ago about my LG 520 litre fridge, I have pulled it out vacuumed all the vents out the back, then I plugged it back in, but didn't work, so I started to clean the inside

Try removing the fan/compressor cover panels and clear the path for airflow across the radiator. The fan and compressor should both run. Inside the fridge there is also a fan that should also run when the compressor runs. Airflow is a must across refrigeration radiators.
There is a defost timer which may need to be checked also. It cuts our the compressor/cooling cycle and turn on some heaters inside the fridge to defrost any ice build up. Common for these circuits to develop problems, the timer malfunctions.

Frig too warm on top, too cold on bottom

inside the fridge section you have a fan damper assy.if you go here you can see it
part number WR49X10091,the cold air comes through the damper and the fan in it blows the cold around into the fridge section,warm air rises so this is why it's warm on top and colder on the bottom.i just installed this part for a customer,unplug the machine or shut it down,remove the 4 screws that hold the top light assy. on drop it down,unplug the wire harness,pop off the cover to the water filter,remove the top two shelves then pop off the middle cover on the back wall,this allows you to remove the two screws that are behind it,remove all screws and remove the damper fan assy.look at the instructions,the one i worked on i had to remove the gasket that's on the freezer wall side and replace it with the fat gasket in the box and then put it back together again,it took me around 35 minutes to do the job.hope this helps you out

Noticed the ice maker quit working a day or two later noticed things thawing in freezer. a day or two later i noticed the refreigator wasnt cooling. cleaned everthing out and tried to freeze some ice cube...

you need to plug it back in and see if the compressor is running on unit... listen to it for about ten minutes or so do you here any clicking sounds coming fronm the rear if so this will be a a bad relay on compressor or something to do with the compressor... if you remove back cover you will see the compressor on the bottom of the unit and can pit your hand on it to fill if it is running..while back there make sure the fan in the bottom is running next to compressor... if all that looks good the unit is probley going to work like a champ for a few days you recall any frost on the back wall of freezer back wall... if so then you may have a defrost problem either the heater has failed,the evaporator fan located behind the inside back wall cover has failed. a thermostat has failed or the actually defrost control... let it run and see if the inside fan is running also.. you will have to remove back wall to check the heater using a volt meter and set it on ohms to check the heater for continuity... repost with anymore questions...

Freezer is cold but fridge is warm

check door seals for freezer and fridge. If ok, check frost level in the freezer. Ice present on the back of the freezer panel (evap cover) remove evap cover and check for defrost problem by ohming out heater and defrost thermostat. If both check ok, then test the defrost timer. If this unit new and covered under wty, call a&e factory svc at 1-800-905-9505 for a free repair. consult your owners manual for wty details.

Fan running but neither refrig or freezer is getting cold.

Your refrigerator may be stuck in defrost cycle. I know it has a defrost timer part number 215846602 Most times they are located inside the fresh food compartment behind the control panel. Sometimes below fridge and behind kick plate. The thermostat could be defective also. You can check that by unplugging the refrigerator remove cover and checking continuity between the two male connections located on the rear side of thermostat control turned as cold as you can turn it. Or you can join the two wires together and plug refrigerator back in to see if compressor comes on. When you find the defrost time turn clockwise slowly until the refrigerator starts. If these don't work let me know and we will do some more test. Sea Breeze

Noise intermitently from top ( freezer section)

in the back there should be a small cover with vent holes in it,that holds on with 2-4 screws,take that off and you will see the fan.REPLACE the fan motor,it may or maynot come with a fan blade,the motor alone is about $60.00,get the model number from inside the fridgerator
