Freezer fan only run sometimes


If you nudged the fan and it started working it could be defective and needs to be replaced or it could be freezing up because of freezing condensation. Be sure that all the coils under and behind the fridge, if there are any,
are free from dirt and dust. If this is a refridg/freezer be sure the air vent between them, on the inside, is not blocked by anything. The airflow is necessary for proper temp control.

Sounds like a faulty thermostat, although fast freeze usually bypasses the stat so should then get to temperature. If the compressor and condenser are getting very hot and all is clean, check there isn't a condenser fan stuck underneath that is seized. If not, may have had a bit of a refrigerant leak and sucked a bit of air into the system. Call an engineer

LG refrigerator freezer temperature adjust does not work


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Freezer has stopped freezing items regardless of what temp you select, and lower fridge gets cold only enough for drinks. Motor continually runs as though it is trying to reach the required temperature...


can be a thermostat issue, or your condenser in the back of the freezer may be plugged up with ice. Unplug the fridge and take the back freezer wall off, be careful not to pull on the wires connected. It may be full of ice. Don't chip at the ice as you may hit a refrigerant line and cause a leak. You can speed up the process with a hair dryer, being careful not to melt the plastic. If this is frozen, you may need a new defrost heater.

Refridgerator


Unless your fridge has a water supply connected to i.e for an ice maker,t about the only place the water could be coming from the condensate waste pipe.

Inside most fridges near the evaporator (the cold part) is a drain hole so that any condensate can drain out. This flows thru a tube to the back of the fridge. Normally this tube will feed into a tray and will evaporate away naturally.

You could have a look at the back of the fridge to see if this is happening.

Pease remember to rate this solution.
