Question about LG Refrigerators

1 Answer

The manual on my LG SXS refridgerator, model GR-L207NI does not even mention the internal filter. The cover of the filter has NSF on it. Does the filter need to be changed ? How do you remove it as it does not seem to budge even though I see a downward pointing arrow above it? Finally if I need to purchase a new filter where would I buy one? Thank you Fran forsyth

The filter is available on line at this site. But this may not suit you as I am not sure where you are located.

Please confirm if the part looks like the same as what is in your refrigerator.

NSF is only a certification saying that the water going through the applicance is safe for consumption.

Hope this helps. The frequency of changing the filter is normally driven by the quality of water in your area. If you are drinking the water directly from the tap then I see no reason to change it often.

    I do not have the exact procedure for replacing the filter in your model of the fridge. However, usually you hold it and follow and twist and pull down type motion.

    Check this site for instructions on a different LG fridge. Yours should be similar.

    On other models the you have to turn the knob covering the filter chamber and pull the old filter out. Make sure there is a cup underneath the hole to catch spillls. Replace the new filter into the chamber and close and twist the lid. Follow instructions that come with the filter. You will have to run the dispenser for about 5 minutes to flush the new filter before starting to make ice.

LG should pay you to write the manual... I've been plagued by the IE error...

IE is inlet error, displayed when "Not reached to the normal water level in spite of 10 min. water supply"

Possible cause:

  • The Water Supply Tap is closed.
  • The Water Supply is shut off.
  • The Inlet Hose is kinked.
  • The Water Pressure is very low.(below 10 psi)
  • Inlet Valve is OK?
  • The filter of Inlet Valve is clogged by impure water.
  • The Hall sensor is OK?
  • The Impeller of Air Guide is bound.

  • Cut power by tripping circuit breaker or unplugging power cable for ten minutes.
  • Take action on Water Supply device.
  • Measure the electric resistance of Inlet Valve. (950-1300 )
  • Clean the filter of Inlet Valve.
  • Check the frequency of Inlet Water by the Test Mode.
  • Replace the Air Braker.

I'm looking for a manual for a GE SxS Model G8622BLCC. All I need is to find out where the temperature control knobs are located for the freezer and fridge?

They're probably in the refridgerator compartment near the top either toward the front or back of the compartment.

Where can I purchase replacement water filters for LG Refrigerator Model RS2630SH as soon as possible? I assume actually replacing the filter is self-explanatory? Thanks. Jane

Hi Jane and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. Since you did not mention a geographic location I am assmuing somewhere USA. For some reason the model is crossing to a Samsung Refrigerator and not an LG one. I am using RS2630SH as the model number and keep getting Samsung results.

Searching Samsung there is one filter here:

LG there are 3 filters here:

Here is something to think about.... Once you do install a new internal filter. I recommend installing an external in line filter. The are cheaper... and will make the internal filter last 5 - 6 times longer.

Freezer works but refridgerator does not . light works and coil fan woks

Since you did not mention the manufacturer breand, or if it is a top freezer/ bottom food section, or if it's a sxs- I can only give you some general diagnosis:

Top freezer model and sxs
1. Are your controls in the proper setting?
1. Check to see if there is any "snow formation" on the evaporator cover. If yes, then you most likely have a defrost issue

2. Is defrost drain clogged ( top freezer model). If defrost drain is clogged then water can "spew" over into air diffuser and cause an airflow issue

3. Make surer you are getting air flow into the food section i.e. the fan in the freezer blows the freezer air into the food section. You might havve an air difuuser that is not opening
