We just returned from a 3 week trip. I noticed that though the icemaker was full and everything was frozen, the upper food compartment was somewhat warmer than usual. We've purchased some groceries, and now its evident that the refrigerator compartment hardly works at all. Here's a couple of variables to the problem: 1. While we were gone, there was at least one power outage. 2. Our departure coincided with the installation of new central air ductwork about 4 feet from the LG. 3. I've gone from 4 to 6 on the touchpad controller for the fridge (last night). 4. This LG is less than a year old. 5. No air blows from the fridge compartment vent. 6. Fridge light works. To try to solve this myself, I vacuumed the vent in the back, which was pretty dusty, but seeing that its freezing fine. I'm at a loss, and ready to get to work with a BFH.
Try completely defrosting the unit (turn it off), then start it again and see what you get. Check that the ventilation around the outside - especially the back - is ok. If no luck from that then you should be able to get it fixed under warranty; http://us.lge.com/general/contact.jsp If your warranty is not valid for any reason, please ask again and we may be able to help, however the majority of things that might need to be done to a unit like this are illegal to perform unless you are qualified, and require quite expensive special tools. It is almost certainly fixable, and would certainly be cheaper than a new fridge. Hope this helps :)
