Question about LG Refrigerators

1 Answer

Fridge gets cold then shuts off

Plug it in and it gets cold then seems to turn itself off, only thing that remains working is the light. Unplug it and plug it back in and you hear the motor/fan start up again and it starts getting cold again... then it happens again. This is a second hand fridge we bought for our daughter and there isn't a manual. It says LG on the door and inside it says electrocool GR-292R

Feel the motor temp. after letting it do its thing for a reasonable period. If motor is extreemly hot then it means motor is switching off on internal protection.(has to be replaced then.). Set temp to its coldest then see if it still switches off as it is. if the same, board is more likely to be a problem. Very seldom if ever does one have to replave sensors. (assuming it has an electronic board). If using a th/stat, replace it if temp does improve but still eratic.

SOURCE: LG GR-292R freezer works/fridge does not.

It is more than likely short of refrigerant, needs to have the leak repaired and then recharge refrigerant.

Maryanne, the first thing to try is turning the Master ON/OFF switch to OFF. Unplug the unit and allow it to remain unplugged for 10 - 12 minutes. Generally, that's enough time for the unit to reset itself. Plug the unit back in and turn on the Mater On/OFF switch and then proceed as you normally do.

If that solves the problem great! If it becomes a recurring problem, turn the fireplace off, unplug it and call Dimplex USA Technical Service 888-346-7539.

Hope this helps to solve your problem. Please let me know.

Hi,
This is a problem with the 'Motor Run Capacitor'

What you suggest is exactly what happens when this part fails.

Unplug - and look carefully around the connections to the compressor - there should be a cylinder with 2 connections on it. Read what value it says (like 250V 50pf) - and order a replacement from a parts store.

Fit it any way round - it doesnt matter.

plug back in and should work 100%

Cost about - $5

What would cause the green lights to come on, then the lamp light flashes without turning on the lamp? The lamp is showing 1240 hours remaining. Have tried unplugging projector to reset with no results.


possibly hasn't been able to complete cooldown mode. if you unplug it before it shuts down completely, it'll turn on by itself when you plug it in and complete the cooldown. once it stops by itself, it'll work fine.

Dell Inspiron E1505 shorting out adapter


I would replace the battery if you had for some time. Over time charging a battery will slowly not take a charge. If you tried two adapters, about the only thing is left is the battery.

Running fine but blowing warm air


"it seems to work fine but will not get cold"
Not sure how it can work fine and is not cold. When you say work fine, is the light on and the freezer fan blowing but is the compressor running?

Unplug the Ref and wait about 30 min or so, plug it back in and listen for the compressor to start running. You should be behind the Ref to hear this. If you don't hear it start running then you may hear a clicking noise. This clicking is a problen with the compressor start relay. If the compressor runs but still is not cold then it could be low on coolant.

Freezer and Refrigirator not cooling


You didn't say if the compressor is running or not. If it is and all other things you stated are running then it has a sealed system problem. The sealed system comes with a 5 yr warranty in most cases (check owners manual). If the compressor is not running then listen for a click at the compressor. If you hear the click then I would replace the relay on the compressor. If you need further help I will need the complete model # off the sticker inside the fridge section.

GE Portable Airconditioner - Model APN10AA Serial # GG509122


Ours was leaking water. After taking the covers off,cleaning it,and draining all the water out, I started getting the same problem with the light coming on every 7 minutes. I actually added some water to the system till it was too full and then drained it out through the plug. The light still came on every 7 minutes until I turned the unit off and then unplugged it for a few minutes. I plugged it back in, turned it on and reset the temperature. It seemed to reset itself and kept running normally. BB
