Question about LG Refrigerators

1 Answer

We have a 4 year old LG fridge obviously out of warrenty. Repair man was just here. Why does LG wire lights into main board? Why does LG install TWO 60 watt bulbs (120 watts!!) when the notice in the fridge says doe NOT exceed 60 watts? We have had a near disaster due to this inherent manufacture fault. We were away and came home to find top and second shelf of fridge overheated (all food melted and semi cooked) as the interior light remained on after door closed due,to faulty basic manufacturers design. This is now costing us almost $400.This info re faulty design has been collaborated by the repair man who has seen same problem.Response anticipated ASAP. We are very disappointed with LG. We also had problems within the warranty period which took a lonf time to be solved.

LG issued a service flash about this very problem, so you may be in luck. The last one I did for a customer was paid for by LG.. In a nutshell, LG screwed up. The control board that the lights tie into has a bad relay, which causes the lights to stay on all the time. The fix is to get a new control board and a new light harness. The new harness has a thermal switch that shuts off the lights should they not shut off in the future. I'd try LG customer service and see if they can help you out.

Good Luck!

I have LG fridge LFC22770ST. Its 3 years old, the compressor failed. A repairman said lg told him that the main control board would have to be replaced also. Board okay.


He's full of sh--. The only thing that has to be replaced is the compressor and that part is under warranty for five years. But they will charge you for the labor to install the new one.

Shouldn't take more than two hours to remove, solder in new one and refill valve, evacuate the system and recharge to specs. But they will hose you.

I have a 2-1/2 year old LG 60LB7100 TV. When I turn the TV on I get the Lg logo and sound but then I loose picture.


The back light driver can be incorporated in either the power supply board or the main board (model specific). Contact these guys and they will make sure you get the correct part. TV Parts Universal TV Stands DLP Chips ShopJimmy

sounds to me that you have either a sensor problem or a main board issue. to avoid spend money and the intricasies of trouble shooting, call for service. Sears has a Service Smart Agreement that is reasonable and would cover needed repair up to 500.00

Interior light wont turn off


tHE PROBLEM IS CAUSED BY A BAD MAIN CONTROL BOARD LOCATED ON THE BACK OF THE REF AND IS COVERED BY A PLATE WITH A BUNCH OF SCRREWS. ALSO, LG HAS EXTENDED THE WAR TO COVER UNITS PURCHASED IN THE LAST 3 YEARS TO CORRECT THIS PROBLEM. CONTACT A LG DEALER OR CALL THE COMPANY TO SEE IF YOU ARE COVERED BY THIS WARRANTTEE REPAIR

Whirlpool gold refridgerator light not working and is making funny noise


Had the identical symptoms with my Whirlpool Gold GS6SHEXNB00 side-by-side refrigerator. Had a technician come on site, indicated it was the "circuit board/ timer" (Whirlpool part # 1394052). Board is accessible from behind fridge (lower left side in a white plastic housing to left of compressor).

Swapped the board out (noticed a scorched circuit on the old circuit board). Lightbulbs now work, temperature readouts also good to go.

Most likely it's the PDP panel failure. It may cost you more to repair then to buy a new one.
