Question about LG LRSC-26922 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

The ice and/or water won't stop coming out the door when the back soft panel area is pressed. Either ice or water keep coming out when the back is pressed with a glass until door is opened. When the door is closed it sometimes continues. The button at top inside seems to be working, i.e. it can be pressed up and down. I took top of ice maker out and put it back in and readjusted the ice that was left in the bin. If the freezer door is left open the flow eventually stops. This has happened the last couple of days. The express ice button is off. I have no manual. What can I do?

It sounds like the actuator for your dispenser switch is sticking. To fix it you will need to get inside the dispenser housing, which involves removing the decorative front panel on the dispenser.

It's kinda tricky to get this thing apart, and it's even harder to get it put back together if you've never done it. I'd recommend calling a repairman.

Water dripping from freezer


Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.
Most all fridges have a drain. Look inside your fridge for a "V" shaped channel with a small hole. This hole leads to a tube and a small pan which sits on top of your refrigerator's compressor. The defrost cycle causes water to run into the channel, down the tube, and then it generally evaporates with the heat of the hot condenser/compressor.
However, if that tube is clogged with food crumbs, particles , debris etc, you will have to clear it to get back to a normal mode of operation. A toothpick, pipecleaner, straw or a cotton bud can often do the trick.
Even a frost free freezer will still ice up at times in the areas away from the heated defrost area and the drain line can freeze. This icing causes the pipe work to the compressor to ice over or sweat and cause a puddle. Or if the drainage has frozen over, it will need to be de-iced. ( usually the line is under the freezer bottom plate covering. Towards the back of the unit) And there is another inside the fridge area also.
Give the freezer a good overnight defrost until it's totally clear of ice in addition to making sure the drain is clear to the pan at the back and then restart the freezer.

Tip

Unthawing the water dispenser in the freezer door


If the icemaker is loaded with ice or certain areas of the freezer are perhaps overloaded redirecting cold air toward the water output it can freeze. Also if the ICE shoot has ice cubes obscuring it's closure that area gets cold enough to freeze the water. Check after dispensing ice that the round flap is closed.

I open the freezer door and place three regular sized bed pillows placed into white trash bags into the opening being sure to DEPRESS the light latch with one of the pillow placements so it won't constantly sound a door ajar warning.

I then close the door as much as the pillows will allow and place a chair in front to keep the pillows in place for about 25 minutes. Usually this will do it and the water will begin to flow . I draw off enough to run it completely through the entire line . Sometimes a small piece of ice will come out. I had tried hair dryers and all manner of things and just gave this a shot one day and it works when it freezes for whatever reason it will use.

Amana ASD2620HRW, buzzing and vibrating at the filter area when it cycles to fill the ice maker tray, does not fill. Water runs from under the freezer when the water button is pushed.


Pull the machine away from the wall far enough for you to move around. With a 1/4" nut driver or drill with a 1/4" adapter, remove the lower portion,(on some models all you have to take off is the left side only) this will expose the water valve. Check for broken lines, also have someoine press the water lever in the door and see if water runs out and where at exactly. With the back off you should be able to isolate the problem.

Water/ice dispenser sticking on


We had a problem with the water/ice dispenser on our 5-year-old LG SxS Refrigerator (LRSC 26930TT). In a panic to stop the water flow, the rubber activator boot was pulled off. The dispenser stopped once the button attached to the back of the boot was removed. Nothing was physically broken (i.e., parts intact) but the challenge was to get things (especially the boot) back in place. The key for me was to use patience: researched Internet for pointers (not too helpful), looked for schematics (even less fruitful) and exhaustively examined the panel on refrigerator (to help reverse engineer). Okay, here’s how I disassembled and reassembled without breaking any tabs or other pieces. Assuming your unit is similar, the panel is on the freezer door on the left side. You can lock the dispenser (using panel button) to preclude undesired water/ice while working. Note: the outer bezel (edge of panel) is secured by screws and should not be messed with. The main panel has tabs on all four sides. I used three screwdrivers (small to average in size) to pry the panel off. Pry the main panel working through the seam between the bezel and panel. Work your way around starting from the lower left or upper left corner. Each side of the panel has 3 or 4 tabs. Methodically work your way around using moderate force to pop the tabs loose. Once the panel is loose, you’ll need to disconnect the electrical connector at the upper left. The plug comes off and reattaches easily…don’t pull on the wires, use the plastic connector itself. Wiggle the panel free. Now you can get to the back of the boot retention bezel…the ultimate goal. Carefully push the bezel’s securing tabs (x3) through the panel and reattach the rubber boot. I used needle nose pliers to carefully pull each rubber nib through their applicable hole on the bezel. Now leave the boot/bezel assembly to the side—it’s the last step to reassembly. Note how the main panel tabs fit into their receiving slots/flanges. Reattach the electrical connector, snaps right on, and maneuver center of panel into recessed area, around ice chute/water nozzle. Slide the right and bottom sides on first—flanges, not slots for tabs—then align remainder of panel. Using moderate force, pop (punch) the remaining tabs back into their respective slots. The main panel will seat over the bezel. Now align and snap boot/bezel back into place. Finis! (No guarantees, but this procedure worked like a charm for me.)

GE Profile making knocking noises at different times


I have the GE profile Refrigerator with ice maker in the refrigerator compartment. Mine was knocking loudly for long periods of time, so I finally removed the icemaker by removing the side panel in the icemaker compartment held with 1 phillips head screw, disconnecting the electrical plug (unclip), pulling the tab of the icemaker down (on top) and sliding it toward the door, thus removing it. There was ice frozen in the motor compartment that was the problem. I let it thaw out and re-installed. All was OK after that..
