Question about LG LRTN19314 Titanium Top Freezer Refrigerator

2 Answers

Refrigerator is beeping intermittantly with door closed

The LG top freezer unit is a little over one year old. It starts beeping at odd times w/o any apparent reason. Customer support says that this is signaling open door but the doors are closed, operation is otherwise OK, the buttons that turn the inside light on and off are also OK, light goes on and off as it should. Will be grateful if someone would suggest a possible cause. Many thanks. Len

Len, I have had many service calls regarding this problem. The problem is the inside door switch. LG missed the tolerences a little. What I have had to do is get a piece of plastic with some double phase tape, about the same size of the switch and mount it so when closing the door it will put more pressure on the switch. The piece should be at least 1/8 inch thick. I believe LG has come out with a kit but the aforementioned works better...Catriver...post back.

LG EF FF Error


I found another post that suggested the following. Did it and found wires/connections frozen with a huge piece of ice.

Make sure unit is unpluged!

Removed baskets (2), unscrewed back panel of freezer. A little tricky to get out. There will be electrical connections attached to the panel but you can disconnect/reconnect these. Mine were on the top, left corner. I used a blow dryer to melt the ice chunck. Dried up all the water, replaced back, baskets.

I then took the panel off the very back of the unit as the melted ice had drained into the drip pan. I cleaned the drain pan of water, dust. They don't make this an easy task for the homeowner. Replaced the back, plugged it back in and all is working again. Don't know for how long until this happens again. But....no more LG products for this homeowner.

We remodeled the kitchen 2 years ago and went stainless steel. My 16 year old Kitchenaide is still running in the garage. Guess I'll go back to that model when the LG bits the dust.

LG Refridgerator LFC257060ST Keeps Beeping


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.

Erratic beeping


This is a signal that the battery is dying, and is failing the self-test. According to Conext, the battery replacement alarm goes off for one minute every five hours. You should also see the replace battery light on the front of the unit lit. Changing the battery should solve your problem.

Hello finokane,
welcome to fixya.
Happy to be of service

You said, your LG fridge freezer has man times stopped working for no reason. Unfortunately it has happened many times when you have been on holiday. Sometimes just the fridge goes off and sometimes just the freezer, but usually both go off. If you switch off the appliance at the plug and switch it back on, everything starts to work again. You are thinking of getting rid of it as you have lost so many freezers full of food.

How old is the freezer.
My advice is get a new freezer.
It will pay for itself in only a few years!

Here is an interesting report I just read!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
