Question about LG Refrigerators

1 Answer

The fridge is not working although the freezer part is working this has happened several times, we were advised by our LG distributor to switch off the whole thing, leave for 48 hours, then switch back on again We did this and the fridge started cooling again. However, this problem has happened several times over the last year, most recently yesterday. Any idea what is making this happen and what I can do to stop it happening every few months Thanks Gary Guernsey

Frost in Freezer of BRAND NEW LG FRench Door Fridge!


After converting C to F, I reckon your freezer should be set a bit lower than -2 degrees for five star food storage. I think -15 F should equate to the ideal temperature of about -25 C for five star food storage.

Whatever moisture enters the freezer will become frost. I have not yet seen a freezer that is entirely frost-free and I have no way of knowing whether the amount of frost in your freezer is excessive.
Every time the door is opened, every time somebody exhales while the door is opened and every time unfrozen or barely-frozen food is added there will be moisture and therefore frost...
It is a good idea to use a separate thermometer to check/verify the internal temperatures.

A new fridge or freezer can take a few days to settle and no decisions should be taken before it has been given a fair trial. One point to be aware of is a fridge or freezer that is properly stored and then transported vertically can be switched on as soon as it is delivered but if it has been laid down or severely tilted it should be stood for several hours before switching on. Ignoring this could be detrimental to the performance and/or the life span.

Another important point is the appliance should be adjusted so it is as close to plumb or spirit-level vertical as possible to ensure long life and reliable operation.

The refrigerator door was left ajar for several hours. then the ref cooling system was not functioning right after the incident. although the freezer is still doing its job Im worried if its beyond repair....


When the freezer section gets cold and reaches its required cooling temperature,after that the frost on freezer section starts defrosting and the cooling fan in the freezer section blows this cool air from freezer to fridge.But if the defrost cycle does not start then freezer will block the air passing section from freezer to fridge,so the freezer gets cool but fridge section does not cool. Its the defrost problem.Try manual defrost by unplugging the refrigerator from main power outlet for 4 hours then reconnect it and check,if the same problem is noticed again,.If yes then its defrost board problem.The defrost board located in the back of fridge section.You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com or from online sears part site.------------- Thank you.

Replacing a fridge thermostat of a Smeg FC40RX fridge freezer


DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS METHOD UNLESS YOU UNDERSTAND ELECTRICAL SAFETY. The thermostat is behind the cooling element at the back of the fridge compartment and it connected to the dial at the top front of the compartment that controls its temperature setting. Remove the front plate to access the switch and you will see the wiring that goes to the thermostat. Connect the two wires to the thermostat and if the fridge does not start the thermostat is faulty. Replacements are available, but you may need to do some hunting on line. With the power off this time, securely tie a few feet of string around the thermostat wiring at the switch. carefully loosen the cooling element to free the thermostat and pull it free. Now tie the string to your new thermostat and pull the string back through so the wiring is pulled into place. Put everything back the way you found it and, after a short while, enjoy a nice cold drink.

Fridge not cooling


Hi there,

You most likely have a thermistor that needs replacing. Can you tell me the the temp. in the fridge? Most LG fridges have a 1 year warranty with extended warranty on some parts. If you could provide the model #, I can look into it further for you.

Hi there,

Most LG fridges have a 1 year warranty with some components exteneded, such as the compressor or sealed system repair. Those are usually 5 years or long, depending on the model.

Can you tell me the temp. in your fridge please? I have a strong suspicion that it may just be the thermostat.
