Question about LG LRFD22850 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator French Door

Open Question

The upper door latch snapped from inside the doors.The parts fall off both at the same time. There is no visible access to the broken part since it comes out from the inside of the door itself. LG service useless. The only advise was to get a repair man.The unit cost 2600 dollars in 2008 and I had it serviced twice already at considerably cost because the warranty is what it is a selling oaks only. I would appreciate it if anyone has any idea where to get the part and how can I replace it. Thanks

I got a new bin from repairclinic.com, but the little nubs that hold the bin onto the door (in the thin plastic lining of the door itself) are snapping off. Sigh.

Please check whether the doors are aliened properly to the body and if there is a small warp it could result in escaping of cooling resulting in poor cooling of both the freezer and the refrigerator chamber.

The magnetic gasket is the next reason for poor cooling. So please ensure that the gaskets are having magnet attached to the full length. Broken magnetic strip inside the gasket could also result in partial closing of the door leaving behind plenty of gap allowing the cooling to escape.

Just insert a visiting card between the gasket and the body and if you could do so then the gasket is not effective and requires replacement.

SOURCE: LG french door with non working ice maker

Similar problem. Occasionally my ice maker goes on the fritz. Usually I can turn off the ice maker and place a piece of newspaper over the freezer holes for overnight and it starts making ice when I turn it back on. This time that didn't work so I unplugged it this morning for 3 hours and put all the stuff in coolers. I opened all the doors and removed the freezer bin (just the bin maa'm, not the frame) so I was sure the water lines inside the fridge doors and sides would unfreeze. Plus side is the Fridge got a good cleaning. I just heard my first ice drop about a 1/2 hour ago.

What wears out on the door linkage, that the inside handle won't open the latch?


mostly when this happens the small plastic clip that holds the pull wire to the latch in position is broken and allows the wire to fall out. You will have to remove the door trim to get inside the door Mostly the clip is available from spare parts departments.

Install door latch cable


Technical Instructions
See picture below
1. Remove door trim panel and water shield per
NOTE: Place a strip of masking tape along the edge of door before removing trim panel to prevent scratching the door with the trim panel removal tool.

2. Snap cable housing end from slot on inside door handle assembly and disconnect cable.
NOTE: Use care to prevent bending of cable housing retainer bracket.

3. Remove rear window channel retaining bolt to allow access to door latch.

4. Position a block (screwdriver handle) between the latch and the door inner panel and snap the cable housing end out of slot (towards inner panel) on door latch assembly and disconnect cable at latch.
NOTE: Use care when removing cable housing to avoid bending of the latch. Discard cable.

5. Hook up new cable at latch and snap cable housing end into slot.
NOTE: Make sure the cable housing is fully seated in the slot.

6. Apply a light film of Teflon grease to the barrel end of the cable. See Figure A.

7. Install return spring. See Figure A.
NOTE: Ensure that the push button rod is located between the spring and the door inner panel.

8. Install foam block at latch. See Figure A.

9. Position water shield over the return spring and install push pin to retain upper portion of water shield. See Figure B.
NOTE: Push pin goes in the same hole as the return spring.

10. Clean hands of grease before performing step 11.

11. Remove protective backing along the lower edges only of the water shield. See Figure A.

12. Install latch water shield at door latch. Pinch the exposed adhesive surfaces together to secure the water shield. Check to insure water shield is not showing through the door shut-face latch access hole. See Figure B.

13. Attach cable to inside door handle assembly and snap cable housing into slot.

Door won't stay closed. Door latch seems loose or intermittently will open enough to stop the dryer.


Hi,

Dryer doors either have a combined switch, with a mechanical lock, or these two things are separate.
Whichever type you have, your description of the latch being loose is telling.
Part of the latch has either snapped off internally, and if so, it would be the part that was under the most pressure, due to having a spring or sprund element behind it, which should 'snap' the door shut.
If it has not broken, the two (possibly 4) mount screws that mount the latch to the door fascia have come loose
and this is why the mechanism is now unreliable.
These screws are only accessible from the interior, on the reverse side of the latch, next to the drum.
Whilst very easy to tighten, only a qualified electrician or service technician should access high voltage equipment..

2002 GMC Savana van inner door latch broken


You can pick up the handle from your local GMC dealer. I paid roughly $90 for both (a bit high...but money well spent!) As noted, yes; you do have to remove the interior door panel. From there it's just a matter of removing 4 nuts (metric #10 socket), and replacing them back once the new handle is slipped into place! The bars that operate the door latches simply snap into the plastic clips attached to the handle assembly.
The operation sounds worse then what it really is. It took me longer to write up this review than it did to actually do the work! 5 minutes max...done!! Hell, if you're local; buy the parts

Front driver door won't open from the inside only


The linkage is probably broken or snapped out of place from inside the door panel.
You'll feel that the handle is much easier to move than the other doors.

If you are confident and able, take the door apart removing the screws and snap pieces and look for the missing linkage. It's usually a snap piece that holds a rod in place on the back of the handle. They break all the time, or dry rot, or jarr out of place. They're easily available at your local auto parts place or even dealership for just a few bucks!

Good luck!

The latch/lock on back door of Mitsubishi Montero SR doesn't work


Open the rear tailgate from the inside. Now open the door to the toolkit that is usually mounted on the tailgate/rear door. Using a large Phillips screw driver[usually a #3 tip], take the tool kit off the door panel by unscrewing/removing the screws holding it to the door itself. Once you have removed the tool kit, use a knife to carefully cut a "U" shaped access flap in the clear plastic sheet that should have been behind your tool kit. This sheet is called a water shedder or water curtain, it keeps water off the back of any door panel trim to prolong its life. You want to cut that U shaped hole in the sheet where the door sheet metal already has a hole from the factory. This will allow you to peek up inside your door and see how much of the rear door handle broke on you.
You should be able to easily see the guts of the rear latch and the release handle from this vantage point. Try to move the handle on the outside of the door. If any linkage or plastic 'arms' broken during your winter, you'll probably see this as well. Hopefully new parts are available, otherwise, you'll need to access a used Montero in a salvage yard to get good working parts as a repair. While you're in the door, lube ALL latch, cable, handle parts with a light oil to help prevent this from happen[the oil or a light grease will help displace any future water or ice from sticking to any latch parts]
You can easily tape the U shaped cover you made of the plastic sheeting back up into place with some decent tape, like Duct tape or packing tape. Masking Tape will work, but falls apart in a car with age. Clear plastic Packing tape works well and is transparent to boot. Good Luck with the door.

52 saccaner error


52 Scanner Error Perform the following to troubleshoot a 52 scanner error:
  1. Verify that the toner door is completely closed. If the door is not closed, the printer will not allow the laser shutter to operate and will present the error “52 Scanner Error” or “Door open or no print cartridge”.
  2. Verify that the black connecting link to the toner door hinge is properly attached. If the latch is not properly attached (Figure 1), snap the hinge in place, close the toner door, and power-cycle the unit. Figure 5: Black toner door latch c00162195.jpg
  3. Verify that the inner toner door is properly positioned. Snap the door back into place at the two inner door-locking mechanisms (Figure 2). Figure 6: Inner door locking mechanisms c00162197.jpg
  4. Verify that the door hinge and upper ring are not broken. If either are broken, the unit will need to be returned to HP or a local service provider for service using the applicable warranty, support pack, or contract option. Figure 7: Door hinge and upper ring c00162200.jpg

Broken maytag door latch assembly Maytag quiet series 300: the latch is not working, door is closed and cannot open, seems something snapped inside, how can I open the door ? and change the broken part ?


To open this latch, the handle works as a lever to push inward when you push up on the handle. If your handle if broken, it has probably ceased to work as a lever (the pivot pins have likely broken). You want to push in on the handle to open the latch, ideally toward the bottom of the handle opening. Once you get the latch open, you'll likely want to order a replacement (here is one source : http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Door-Latch/W10130694/1266678 ). Remember to turn off the power to the dishwasher, and you'll need a star head driver to remove the screws from the inside of the door to access and replace the latch.
