How to stop the flashing (strobing) lights inside both the fridge and freezer?

Both fridge and freezer seem to work fine, but both internal LED lights flash like a strobe light when opening either door. Have powered off and reset filter, neither worked.

    We are having the same issue but not sure how to fix it. Doesn't seem like it would be the light or the switch since both the fridge and freezer do it in at the exact same time.

I had the same problem but instead of throwing a couple hundred dollars away I decided to let my lights stay on all the time inside the fridge. All I did was pop the filter switch out so it wouldn't trigger when the door was closed. No more flickering and the hole doesn't irritate me like the rave party inside my fridge did????

    This worked for me too. The only difference in what I did was I left the switch in place, and using some male connectors and a small piece of 16 gauge wire, I jumped past the switch closing the circuit and letting the lights stay on 24/7.

    How does switch come out? I can not find anything on internet, they obviously don't want you to know.

    This is a common problem. Look on the back of the circuit board for R15. This resistor burns out. I removed it and soldered in a 1/4 watt 120 ohm resistor and it works fine now. You have to use a very small soldering tip to avoid burning the pad off the board. Bend your resistor leads down on the end so that the resistor lays flat against the board before soldering to avoid breaking the solder joint after the repair.

That is a sign that the led driver is failing in the unit and needs to be replaced what i would do is locate the led power wires and mount an external driver to operate them,to find the drive voltage connect a verable dc power supply and then wind the voltage up 0 to 30 volts
2 amps max

SOURCE: Inside LED and light on fridge do not work.

First check your light bulb to see if it's good, if it is replace the door sw( it's the switch the door hits when closing ), It can be a pain to remove but that's the only parts that make up the light circut hope this helps

SOURCE: FREEZER OK / FRIDGE SIDE NO INTERNAL LIGHT & NOISE

your refrig has a bad electronic control heres the part #W10135090 the noise your hearing is an internal relay on the board buzzing trying to turn the lights on. i found the part at sears.com and it was ony about 80 bucks it is a plug and play part so you should be able to replace it yourself. the board is located in the white box next to the compressor in the back of your refrig. thanks peyton

your  problem on this is the main control in the compressor compartment. unplug your refrig then remove this control unplug all connectors and reconnect. this will probably get you working temporarily In almost every case I've seen we ended up replacing the control board. thx peyton

Lights on fridge and freezer side won't stop flickering. It's like a disco strobe. Ideas what needs to be fixed?

The led control needs to be replaced. This part is located and part of the upper main led in the refrigerator section or a board located in the back by the compressor. This is a separate board and not part of the main control board.

LG Refrigerator model LFC20740ST Freezer is fine, but Refrigerator is not cold.

Try adjusting the thermostat knob up a bit, it should be near the leds, maybe under a cover. Seveen years is not very old but where your health might be at risk from bacteria maybe you might be justified in looking at a new machine. I refuse to call in repair people any more, once something breaks it seems to become a habit, if electrical items cna be said to have habits.

Maybe a new thermostat /seitch might cure the problem

Fridge defrosted and the motor seems to have stopped working, electricity working fine to it

Most likely t-stat. If the t-stat is good then move to compressor. If you hear a hum then a click and it shuts off, that is the internal overload telling you the compressor is done and needs to be replaced.
