You don't say how old your unit is, so I will give you some things to look for.
1.Condensor coils must be kept clean. Inspect and clean if needed.
2.Door seals MUST be sealing tight so warm air does not enter the unit. Heat moves toward cold, so any void in the door seals will cause food loss.
3. Controls should be set fairly equal to each other, too much of 1 control over the creates unstable temp.
4. Limit door open times, get in, get out! Think ahead about what you want out of the unit.
5. Observe the compressor run time, if it's running continually, then you need to investigate the above issues. If no apparent cause is found, then you may have a weak compressor
Please rate this advice on helpful my answer was in resolving this issue.
Thank you.
Good luck!

Freezer freezes and refrigertor will not stay cold


Hi

Check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the freezer or evaporator fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils under the unit for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan to see if it is running.
If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling the freezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked.
You could defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigerator and letting it sit for at least 24 hours with the doors open to allow the frost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start the warming up again.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

2 year old LG refrigertor doesnt cool inside is warm and the bottom freezer doesnt work either. outlet is ok. the light inside the refrigerator works.


Your run capacitor is bad which is the plug attached to your compressor or you have a leak in the system. If your compressor is not running after you put a capacitor on then your compressor is fried. Good luck. Rate me if I helped you!

Time to check the defrost timer, these can go bad on defrost and warm up the freezer / or on run mode, and cause the freezer coils to frost up..it usually will cycle 2 or 3 times a day. If you can find the timer (bottom, near floor) it can be rotated to cycle. (there are about 5 wires connected to it (it's about the size of pack of cigarettes.)
