Question about Refrigerators
My refrigerator is about 12 years old, a top freezer model Whirlpool ET22DQ, has icemaker and water in door that are not hooked up, and is not working right. The top shelf of the freezer is letting things thaw but food in the bottom half and the area where the icemaker should be are staying frozen. The refrigerator is cool but not cold. I have cleaned the coil, condenser, fan blades, and everything underneath that I can reach. I have turned off the unit over night and emptied it, leaving the doors open so it could thaw if this is the problem. There is no frost on coil nor condenser. The fan is running and air that is neither hot nor cold is blowing out. Do you have any other suggestions of things I can try before giving up and buying a new refrigerator? Thank you
anan, I think your display is giving you a code on these LG. See if you can find the tech sheet behind the toe panel. On your display panel from memory, 3 led's lit from the left means a failed defrost thermistor. This could be the reason you are frosting up and restricting the air flow. There is a main board in back that you can ohm out the thermistors. Connector 4, the two bright orange wires #5 and 6, should ohm at 19K ohms at 50 degrees. Now Im doing this from memory, if you can find your tech sheet, it will give you precise information. Catriver.

If you are sure the fan in the freezer is running and you don't feel any air flow out of the top middle vent inside the fridge section, then the damper motor must be bad. The damper motor is behind that vent cover inside the fridge section.

good then go ahead and ohm out the sensor and the relays to see if the resistance is close to the normat. 70 degrees is roughly 1000 ohms. relay you are lookling for continuity or open. then you can also ohm the fan motor too. let me know what you find;.that will determin whts bad and whats good

Give it some more time. The icemaker has an internal thermostat and it will not come back on until it reaches 16 degrees. It takes a while after it gets warm. if it doesn't start functioning in a few more hours you may have other problems. Hope this helps
