Question about LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator
I thought the gears were bad in the ice bucket so I replaced the bucket with a new unit. However, the problem persists.
its the ice maker .water or condensation has built up in the ice maker modual and refroze upon turning unit back on.either get a new ice maker or uninstall the ice maker and let it dry for a few days and reinstall.but it could happen again that way.or maybe not.

Older freezers have a mechanical timer that shuts the cooling unit off and activates a heating element to melt the ice that forms on the cooling coils next to the fan. Newer ones control it with a circuit board. It sounds like yours is not defrosting and the ice buildup has stopped the fan. Or the fan could be bad and without the airflow thru the cooling coils they are covered with ice.
You need to remove a cover inside the unit to get to the fan, cooling coils, and defroster heating element. There could also be a thermostat attached to the heating element that will need to be checked.
Unplug the unit, disconnect the heating element and check for continuity ( with an ohms tester ) , it should give some reading on the tester. You will need to talk to a repair shop to get the exact ohms it should read. If you have a friendly repair person, they will tell you how to check everything out.

SOURCE: We have a LG refrigerator,model
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
