SOURCE: hot areas around doors on LG fridge

This is usually caused by a dirty condenser coil or a stalled condenser fan.
Remove the cover from the rear of the fridge and see if the fan is running. If not, make sure nothing is stuck in the blades keeping it from turning. If it turns freely you probably need a new fan motor but you would need to check the voltage to be sure.
Post back if you have any questions.

SOURCE: Outside freezer is hot to the touch

Its normal, the heat is coming from the condenser which is integrated within the freezer cabinet and is completely out of sight.

SOURCE: refrigerator not cooling.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, your described problem could be either:

  • evaporator fan/blower is faulty; or
  • air passgaeway blocked or vent is blocked or closed.
The refrigerator section gets its cold air from the freezer. If the freezer is working then the frozen air would have to be drawn to the refrigerator side by the fan. If the fan is not working or the air passage way is blocked, then no frozen air would be moving towards the refrigerator side. result would be as you described.

In some instances, it could be the thermostat of the refrigerator but this would be least likely.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: LG GR-292R freezer works/fridge does not.

It is more than likely short of refrigerant, needs to have the leak repaired and then recharge refrigerant.

SOURCE: Whirlpool runs, but freezer not freezing and frig not freezing

If the compressor is running but the unit is not cooling you may have lost the refrigerant.  See if the condenser coils at the back or bottom are hot.  If they are only warm then the refrigerant is low and can be recharged.  Service tech should check for leak in coolant system.

Insulation does not melt - gaskets may be affected by hot temps.

Your condenser coils may be located on sides of fridge. If so the unit will be warm to the touch on the outside.

Hi
Is your fridge compressor motor working and can you hear it turn on and off every hour or so. Not to be confused with the sound coming from the fan inside the fridge.
If the motor is working but neither the fridge or freezer compartment are getting cold, then there may have been a rupture during transport and gas has escaped.

All of the lights on the front are out and it says Err FF how do I fix this?


You have a bad freezer fan located in the back wall of the bottom. If you unplug the unit for 4 hrs and plug it back in and it works the fan is freezing up. There are service bullitens on this for a new design fan but you have to pay for the service call. Only thru an authorized LG dealer.

Front metal , top heating element very hot


This should be OK. There are heat strips placed behind the door frame to prevent sweating around the door frame due to the metal being cold normally without the strips. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Well yes..i think i solved the problem..
In this model i figured out that the cooling system for both rerigerator and freezer compartments are affected by each other.
If you switch freezer to high number (e.g 4 5 6 7) above 3 which is normal, this would affect rerigerator and become warmer.
Just put freezer to 3 and wait for temperature to stabilize when first operated and it is going to cool effeciently.
