Freezer is 0 deg but refrigerator only gets to 55 deg. fan is running in freezer but no airflow to frige.


Hello,
The most likely reason their is no air flow into the refrig. is because the coil in the freezer where fan that blows air into the freshfood section is blocked up with frost because a part in automatic defrost system has failed and not defrosting the freezer coil so air can pass through it. This is what to check to see why its not defrosting;
DEFROST HEATER ...remove back wall of freezer and you will see a black heater at the bottom of the coil thats frosted up,it looks similar to the bake element in your oven,or in some cases it is going to be a spiraled wires inside of a glass tube. To check it,use a multimeter set to the lowest ohms of resistiance setting and follow and find the wires at the top of that frosted coil,unplug/disconnect those wires and check for continuty with around 5-20 ohms of resistiance. If it has that amount of ohms the heater is good. If your meter display does not change or displays OL the defrost heater is broke and needs to be replaced

DEFROST TERMINATION THERMOSTAT... it's round and has 2 wires and clips to the top of that frosted up coil. IT MUST BE CHECKED WHEN COLD SO BEST TO DO WHEN FROST IS STILL BUILT UP. To check it disconnect the wires on it and check for ZERO ohms of resistiance. As with the heater if the meter display OL or doesnt change,it is the problem

DEFROST CONTROL...it is hard to check for a semi unskilled person and if the heater or defrost t-stat check good its going to be the problem. It will NOT be in the freezer it could be on back wall or inside the control panel in the refrigerator section.

Good luck,
Gene

Freezer sides works, refridgerator side will not get cool, any quick fix, I am pretty adapt mechanically


There is a good chance that the evaporator on the refrigerator side is frosted up due to a faulty thermal fuse or sensor or both. Since these units have more than one evaporator, there is no damper to get stuck.

Model 106 56569400 - Freeze side appears to be Ok. Refrig side not cooling to set temp 37. Current temp is 55-60. Door appears to seal properly.


If you have heavy frost build up on the back wall of your freezer you have a defrost problem. One of three things. Defrost timer, Defrost T-stat or Defrost heater. Usually problem is with the T-stat. If no frost make sure the evap fan is blowing. You should be able to hear a fan noise when opening freezer. If no fan noise replace evap fan which is located half way up behind freezer wall. Good Luck

Temp problem. freezer temp 0 deg. fresh food 46 deg.


An hour aint enough. Turn off fridge, use blow drier, thers a huge ice cube behind that sheetmetal wall back of freezer inside wall, it takes 48 hours at 75 degrees to let it do itself. Listen for inside motor, its obvious. If so, you hve a defrost problem.

No cooling


Both refrigerator and freezer operate from one system. Air from freezer cools refrigerator. Check back wall of freezer for frost buildup. If frost is evident on the back wall of the freezer it indicates a defrost system problem.

The fridge section of my LG GRB218JUDA has stopped working and the temperature indicator reads Err FF. Can you help


Side by side and other refrigerators are controlled or cooled by one system. Look to the freezer side for frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer. Frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer stops the air that cools the refrigerator from circulating. Frost on the back wall indicates a problem in the defrost circuit related to the timing device, heaters or defrost thermostat.

Freeaer and refrigerator warm


Check and clean the condenser coil in the back behind a removable panel. after cleaning make sure you replace the panel. Check the back inside wall of the freezer compartment for frost build-up. If there is frost on the back wall you have a defrost system problem.
