Question about LG Refrigerators

1 Answer

I work in a medical office and our company just purchased an LG Model # LFC20740SW to accomadate more room to hold our vaccines. Well are ranges for refrigerator and freezer have to be within certain temps for the specifications of the vaccines. The refrigerator and freezer work great, but when it goes into defrost mode it warms up to much and this is a concern that we have to address immediately. So if you could give me any advice or give me a # to someone that can maybe overide the defrost cycle. Any help will be muchly appreciated thankyou.

You need not worry about the defrost cycle. It just warms the external walls of the refrigirator and in the interior it will be about 20-25°C which i guess will be good enough to store vaccines. There is a work around to remove the deffrost thing but if defroster or the fan on the evaporater(inside coil)when the evaporater does not defrost it causes ice build up on it,this does not allow air to flow through it.The result of this is that the freezer will stay cold for awhile but the refrigerator section will not get cold enough.

Does Blue Cross Blue Shield pay doctors $40,000 bonus for vaccinating 100 children?

This is a myth, likely spread by anti-vaccine advocates. Most Drs get paid pennies on the dollar for services rendered by insurance companies. This would be highly unlikely.

LG stove model LRE30451SW101 Touch pad works intermittantly Appliance dealer said new touchpad had to come from China would be a 4 to 6 week wait. Can this part be had sooner?

Hi, that is a negative. Unfortunately they are most likely telling you the truth. Parts from LG can take that long. Even other brands can take that long to get parts. So your repair company is telling the truth. Sorry and good luck

We have a roper frig that we use for vaccine storage, the freezer does not stay cold enought for their storage; if we adjust to freezer temp for vaccines then refrigerator is too cold for storage

Good day,
Usually caused by the machine in a cool area or room, along with the machine not getting enough door action, both freezer and fresh food.

Domestic refrigerators are designed to be used as just that. Domestic refrigerators.
Normal kitchen temperatures, followed by minimum of 7 freezer door openings per day spread over 14 hours as well as 22 to 26 fresh food door openings over the same period of time.

In other words, it's not getting enough activity daily. Common problem in doctor offices.

The best model for that type of application in the past was the Amana bottom freezer model. where the primary control was located in the freezer, nailing the freezer temp, and the top controlled by a pneumatic damper controlling the fresh food section, but I do not know if their current model still uses that system.

One option,space permitting is a small chest type freezer added to what you have.

Two lg dvd players in one room, conflict with remote control.

How can you complain about that.

You have already mentioned you have 2 LG DVD systems in your front room, isnt it a little bit obvous that their controllers might control all of their DVD player range..

Instead of complaining, why dont you just put a little bit of black electricians tape or something over the sensor of the one you dont want to use?

Inconsistent temperatures

i am in uk not us so this is guidance only. you should not really use domestic refrigeration for storage of drugs etc. this is because the temperature can vary considerably in the cabinet. you need medical refrigerators which have a fan to circulate in the cabinet.during the defrost cycle, the temp can rise considerably and this may be your problem. also if the doors are opened frequently, the fridge may not be able to high is your ambient temp?
