Sheryl -

Most manufacturer's suggest 0 deg F for the freezer, and 34 deg F for fresh food compartment. You determine the fresh food temperature by filling a 6 to 8 oz glass with cold water and placing a thermometer (capable of reading 32 deg F) in the water. Place the glass & thermometer on a shelf in the fridge. Allow it to assume the temperature on the fridge and hour or so. The glass of water is to minimize rapid increase in temperatures seen when the door opens.

Make your adjustments from there. Allow temperatures to stabilize for up to 24 hours if the fridge is full, much less if empty before making additional changes.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Why are my fridge and freezer to warm?


Sounds to me like your freon is low. That is the gas fridges use to cool things down.
I may be wrong but I would get a repair man to check the freon pressure first.. Low freon is caused by a small leak in one of the lines or in the compressor its self. I had an old fridge and the freon went low just over time.and had to be topped up.

Hi!!
Make sure the temp. settings for the fridge are set about half way, check that the small fan on freezer is working. The fridge gets cold by the air that the small fan blows thru a duct on the inside back wall of the fridge. If the temp. setting for the fridge is set too low, only a small amount of air goes into the fridge, find the vent(s) and make sure air is circulating. It is not uncommon to accidentally move the temp controls when you clean the unit.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!

Hi, I'm Mark.
Check the position of the two controls at the top of the unit inside the fresh food compartment. SET BOTH controls to the 12 o'clock position. Wait about a hour, then check temperatures. Then wait another hour and check temperatures again. Record the values on a piece of paper. When you do check fridge temperatures, do so quickly as the compartments become warm just a few seconds after the doors are opened. Please let me know what happens to the fresh food readings.
Thanks, Best Regards,
Mark

The top freezer cools like a fridge, the bottom fridge is warm


The fluxating temps bottom to top and top to bottom freezing are a result of the "air damper and baffle assy" not functioning properly. I would attempt fo make my case with LG that this started while the unit was under full warranty and persists today.
