Question about LG LFX21980ST Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

Open Question

LG Refrigerator, LFX21980ST. The refrigerator runs constantly. We unplugged it for a couple of minutes. That didn't help. Ice maker is stuck on "Crushed" and we want "Cubed." We emptied the bin and let it clean out (melt and dry). Reset the digital panel, reset the interior panel to large cube. Turned ice maker on and off several times.

SOURCE: Ice maker will only dispense crushed ice

You may have a broken solenoid inside the motor assembly.  The solenoid controls the arm for cubed or crushed ice.  The only way to tell is remove the ice dispenser motor assembly and look at the solenoid.  If the solenoid is broken, replace it and everything should be ok.

SOURCE: LG ice maker only dispenses crushed ice not whole cubes

Very problematic issue with this model .Try unplugging and plugging the fridgerator which resets the board.The board is located on top under a removeable panel where the power cord enters....there is a reset/diagnostic button on the board itself.Contact LGUSA.com for any possible warranty and complain like crazy to avoid spending $300 on this board which can be purchased from andrewselectronics.com who is a factory authorized parts provider.Keeping that ice maker going will make you pull your hair out which is unfortuante for such a stylish and expensive fridge.good luck

SOURCE: my ice machine makes ice but will not give me out

The ice bucket is not installed correctly.

On the back of the ice bucket is a round bar. This round bar has to be lifted to open a door to allow the ice to bypass the crusher assy.

You will need to remove the ice bucket and reinstall it so that this bar is inside of the white plastic assy. This square white plastic assy needs to down (you may have to put your finger in it to pull it down) so the bar can go inside of it. This plastic assy goes up when cubed ice is to be dispensed.

Good Luck.

LG LFC21760ST Beeping Constantly again. Last time it cost me a fortune to replace the computer board. Isn't there a cheaper way to stop the sound?


I would suggest starting with the easiest troubleshooting tip first. Try unplugging it for 10 minutes and plugging it back in. Most (modern) appliances will reset to factory defaults when they are unplugged for a few minutes.

Unit turns on and starts to cool. Then runs for about 5 minutes and turns off. Unplug unit and plug back in and it repeats the problem. Will stay running.


It can be issue with temp sensor getting overheated or compressor getting overheated or issue with compressor relay or capacitor.

No water to icemaker, but through the door water is working. Ice maker itself is ok.


This is most likely cause because some part of the ice maker/distribution mechanism is broken. If at all possible, remove everything from the fridge and freezer and allow the freezer to thaw. If that is not possible, you could try and remove just the ice maker to thaw it or try and thaw it while it is still in the freezer. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

ICE MAKER NOT WORKING LBC22518WW (LG REFRIGERATION)


Hello, just like your problem, our ice maker just stopped making ice. We solved the problem by unplugging the refrigerator for about 2 hours leaving the freezer door open.

It started making ice a few minutes after plugging it back in. Obviously the line that supplies the water had frozen and this allowed it to un-freeze.

We didn't remove any of the frozen items in the freezer, at the two hour mark, everything in the freezer was still mostly frozen.

Thanks

I am interested in the lg bottom freezer french door refrigerator but my current refrigerator does not have an ice maker and is not near a water source, since the ice makers are standard on these...


You will want to make sure it stays in the off position or it will constantly cycle thinking it is making ice and burn out the water valve coil. If you are definitely not going to hook it up removing the ice maker will accomplish the same thing and give you a few more inches of storage.

LG ICE MAKER


Be sure that the fill tube is getting into the ice maker and that the ice maker is not blocked with ice.  If everything seems ok, you may have a leaking water valve which causes it to constantly drip water into the ice maker causing the block of ice.
