    Refrig fan is noisey due to ice build up. Put a hairdryer on LOW Heat in the bottom freezer for about 15-20 minutes. This will defrost the ice on the fan and get it going again, but it is only a TEMPORARY FIX. Be careful that the hairdryer doesn't get too hot as it will bubble up the plastic on the bottom of the freezer. We have had one defrost control replaced already and are in need of a second one.

    Also this problem happened after we lost power so I am not sure if it could be due to a power surge. Another response with the similar situation (except the 2nd and 3rd lights were on in that post) mentioned it was an error code and the thermal fuse in the freezer should be replaced. Perhaps my situation with the 4, 5, 6 number lights on requries the same fix?

    Hi. The panel on fridge door just beeped and froze lit up. I reset the fridge it seems working. Is it known error, any recalls or should I get it checked. Thank You

It is an error code. The thermal fuse in the freezer section has gone. It has to be replaced. To get by in the short term, uplug the unit for 15 minutes, then plug it back in. It will run until it hits the defrost again (approx 5 hours) Part location is 401A and part number is 6615JB2005C. It is easy to change once you get the back cover off. Plug in part.

LG gn253sqa electro cool- temp. control lights in fridge keep flashing and fridge not cooling so good, help?


This has happened to me a couple of times.The problem is that when the fridge door is opened too may times the warm air of summer will block the cold outlets in the fridge with ice.The cold air comes direct from the freezer and the chamber connecting to the fridge clogs up with ice.What one has to do is completely empty the fridge and freezer,leave open both doors so the the ice build-up can melt.Then after about at least 4-5 hours (very important to stick by this time-frame as I tried a less time,but it did not work.),close both the freezer and fridge doors and switch it on.After about 1/2 hour replace your goods in the fridge.The down-side of this is that you will need the kindness of a neighbor or two to use their fridge to store your food whilst this fix is underway..

My lg fridge lrbn20514bk the thermastat is not working on the top control but for freezer is reading 567


This fridge LRBN20514BK with bottom freezer is a piece of junk. Just had the relay on compressor replaced and now the thermostat isn\'t working. Temperature on fridge reads nothing and freezer temperature reading 5,6,7. Then the freezer coils freeze up and no air blowing to the fridge. Ready to take this POS outside and blow it up. Only 7 years old and never ending issues. I will never buy LG again. EVER! LNG - Life is not good! HELP.....so what needs replacing? Thermostat? And of course I have to have repair man come in due to LG not selling parts to customers. Again I call BS

LG Bottom freezer refrigerator Model LFC21760 does not cool


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages

call the number in your service manual. they'll ask you to sent the receipr, the silver sticker on the back of the fridge, and a piece of the outlet cord so they know it's not in use. they'll ship you a new fridge. WOW!
