Question about LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Why is ice getting stuck in the gears before the chute in my LG LFX25960ST?

I thought the gears were bad in the ice bucket so I replaced the bucket with a new unit. However, the problem persists.

SOURCE: have a lg lfx25960st has frost on back wall of

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.

NOTE: This
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

Frost builds up on the inside of the ice bucket and the ice seems to be melting together. Water runs out of the bottom of the ice bucket both inside and through the front.


Make sure the ice Chute door is closing all the way usually when you have frost build up in that area the ice Chute door is stuck open and it's going to have to be repaired

I HAVE KITCHENAID SIDE BY SIDE REF. THE OUTLET OF ICE BUCKET FROSTS OVER , NOT ICE.


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today. Sometimes ice gets stuck in the ice door causing it to build up frost and ice. When this happens the bucket gets stuck and wont come off. Using a hair dryer and melting it is the way we get them off. This is a common issue. Removing the ice bucket one time a month and running hot water through it and clearing any frost in the chute usually prevents this from happening.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

My LFX25960st LG stainless refrigerator ice maker isn't working, it'll make a few ice cubes every couple of days and now on the touchpad it says ER IF and i can't touch anything, how can i fix my problem?


Remove the fresh water hose coming into your refrigerator and check the water flow with a small bucket. This actually sounds like a replace water filter error. Some IF error codes break down to Inline Filter.

Ice maker not making ice. ice in the tray, but will not dump the ice


Its the bar and gears that has frozen.

There is a stainless bar on the front of the ice maker. It move out and back to check for ice in the bucket. This bar is stuck and the ice maker thinks there is no need to harvest ice.

Try to move this bar and I bet it is stuck.

You can get a new Ice maker from Ebay and replace it yourself.

You may have an issue with one or more of the following:

* icemaker
* dispenser actuator
* ice chute door assembly
* ice dispenser solenoid (if the solenoid is stuck in an open position, the ice chute door/flap would remain open allowing cold air to escape).

Contact an appliance service company.

Ice Jam in Chute - Whirlpool IDI SxS


first check would be to see if the flapper door is closing all the way in the dispenser area. best way is to remove the ice bucket and shine a flashlight from the front up into the disp door area and look for light around the door from inside the chute.

another check would be to make sure the door delay mechanism is connected an not allowing the dispenser door to close to fast trapping a cubes in the door and causing an air leak in the chute..

Keep in mind if you use alot of crushed ice frost build up is faster than with just cubed.

Bottom of ice maker/dispenser frosting over


Open the freezer door and look down the ice chute while you shine a flashlite up the dispenser cute from the outside. If you see light around the chute door, it needs to be replaced or something is wrong with the mechanism. The problem you describe is almost always air leakage around that flap.
Post back if you need more help.
