Freezer compartment does not make ice in tray but will freezee water in bottles left in there. makes funny noises every now and then (the frige) like an ice cube dropping or cracking sound, what could be the problem? also funny odour whenever opening fridge bottom door. some ice build up in vents in fridge compartment.
Buy another brand. LG are cheap and nasty when it comes to whitegoods even though the price tag is still up there. I have done nothing but research for my next fridge and i might go with the same brand as i have had for the past ten years and have not had a single problem.(it is definately not a LG of Samsung or one of these other brands that have all the advertising and have only been around for a little while)

You will have to remove the rear fiber panel and check the opaque plastic tube END at the catch basin tray for obstructions. Additionally you will have to do a maunal defrost by using a fan directed at the freezer compartment for at least 2 hours. The compartment drain is most likely frozen and the only way to make sure it has defrosted is to use a fan making sure that the freezer reaches room temperature. The standing water in the freezer drain acts as an ice insulator so just be patient with the water mess and clean up while you manually defrost it. You must make sure that the drain reaches above freezing for the ice blockage to be cleared.
If you need to access the drain the ice maker and shelving has to come out and the temp control knob pulled off to remove the rear evaporator acess cover. Be careful if there is a compartment light as those wires are easily broken. The light cover can be removed by locating the locking tabs and unlocking them with your thumb by gently squeezing the cover. If there is debris in the evaporator drain clear it. Some drains have a plastic screen that needs to be lifted out before you can clear the drain funnel.
I had this problem with our 2 door frost-free LG fridge (model GR-B207EC). Perhaps you also notice a regular ice buildup in the bottom of the freezer compartment?
My solution was to switch off the fridge and unplug it from the wall, unload the freezer compartment and remove the white plastic back panel inside the freezer compartment. The panel has arrows marked around the edges where the catches are that hold it in place. Carefully flex out the panel at the catches using a large flat blade screwdriver if necessary. Ice buildup can make removal of this panel more difficult.
Behind this back panel is a condenser, under which is a silver tray, which is designed to catch the drops which fall from the condensor (this is the 'frost-free' part of the fridge). I found mine solidly frozen with ice and used a low-heat setting on a heat gun to melt the ice. In the absence of a heat gun a hair dryer will work fine, but don't melt the plastic components of the fridge. (It is also unadvisable to chip away ice with a knife of other sharp implement as you can easily slip and damage yourself or the fridge).
After fully defrosting the tray (this will take some time), including the drain hole in the base of the tray (pour a small amount of warm water in the tray and make sure it drains readily), reassemble the fridge components and restock your fridge. Remember to plug it back in and switch it on.
No more water leaks.
As an alternative to this fix ... if you have the luxury of being able to transfer the contents of your fridge to another fridge and not have to use the leaky one for a while ... empty the fridge and freezer, unplug it from the wall, leave the doors open for a week in a warm location. I didn't use this method but I reckon a week would be long enough to defrost the ice buildup behind the back panel of the freezer and allow the water to drain, yielding the same result.
there is a chance that the bottle that holds your water in the fridge compartment.could be broken or a line maybe disconnected this would cause water to leak in the fridge compartment.this bottle is designed to hold the water and get it cold before dispensing to your glass
Heya Johnpc, The best way to check the fan is to open the door and to push in the door switch wait about thirty seconds and you should be able to hear the fan run. If you cannot hear the fan the chances are you should call domestic refrigeration tech out.
Another thing that also makes water gather in the freezer is the freezer door seal is old and not sealing correctly.
on the back wall inside the freezer unscrew the white panel and then remove the panel behind this . you should now see a tray that runs the width of the freezer with a driphole on the left-hand side which will probably be frozen with ice , chip away whatever is possible and then put boiling water on the driphole and once this is clear you should find the problem sorted , 1 other option is to turn the fridge/freezer off for several days and this will allow the ice build-up to thaw thus resolving the problem
Your icemaker tray has an update for the water flowing over the tray. You will need to call a qualified LG technician to get it replaced. Also, the tray is twisted because it binds itself against the hinge pin on the left side. To stop this, spray some cooking spray oil in the left hinge pin and it should unbind itself and return to normal.
Defrost the unit for two days with the doors open...I know you're going to lose your contents. You may have ice on the coils internally. Next make sure you've cleaned the external coils under the unit. Leaving liquids open inside the unit or setting it colder than required will both cause issues like the ones you've got. Also, be sure all air vents inside the unit are unblocked and the door closes tightly all around.
