Question about Refrigerators
I have had the same model since may 2007 and have ahd to have it serviced 3 times. The first (and recurring problem) is that the ice-maker overflows cubes no matter what the setting. But, when I had it fixed the first time, the repairman said there had been an factory update because of recurring frost build-up. Call LG customer service to get this confirmed. They should fix it for free (like a service bulletin for autos.

We need to find the reason for the restriction of cold air from your freezer making its way to top of the fresh food section. Because cold air is heavier than warm air you will get these symptoms for several different reasons.

I want you to look for any signs of frost build up on the rear wall of your freeze. If yes the symptons are listed below as the most likely reasons that will cause this to happen
SERVICE DIAGNOSIS CHART
for your model can be also found on page's 13 and 14 of your models Service Manual
Symptoms: Frost or ice on evaporator.
1. Defrost thermostat faulty->Check defrost thermostat. Replace if failed.
2. Evaporator fan faulty ->Check fan motor. Replace if failed.
3. Defrost control faulty ->Check control and replace if failed.
4. Defrost heater remains open -> Check defrost heater continuity. Replace if failed.
5. Open wire or connector -> Check wiring and connections. Repair as necessary.
6. Refrigerant shortage or restriction -> This will look very different than a totally frosted over evaporator. As Freon slowly is lost the evaporator may appear to have ice on half of evaporator as the leak becomes worse the ice melts and cooling is affected more until there is no cooling.

Understanding the way LG uses part numbers is tricky at times so ask if you need help with part numbers or questions about Controls that are likely the reason for the symptoms you mentioned in your post.
