My LG refrigerator model # LFC 20745SW quit working totally, what could be wrong & is it worth fixing it's 7 yrs old. It's

no one but the technician you get in to diagnose the fault will be able to give you answers to make that decision
with no lights there is no power so the initial indications are that the fix will be less than a new unit
they only become costly it the compressor is unserviceable

My lg refrigerator just gave out. Its plugged in but its not working. I have checked the circuit brakers and everything is fine. Is this fixable or do i need a new fridge? I have owned this one 2 years

I had this problem a while ago. It may not be the circuit breakers but the outlet where fridge is plugged may have gone bad. Plug fridge into another outlet and see what happens. A 2-year old fridge is almost brand new.

2 year old LG refrigertor doesnt cool inside is warm and the bottom freezer doesnt work either. outlet is ok. the light inside the refrigerator works.

Your run capacitor is bad which is the plug attached to your compressor or you have a leak in the system. If your compressor is not running after you put a capacitor on then your compressor is fried. Good luck. Rate me if I helped you!

Refrigerator purchased in 12/07 just quit working , tried plugging into different outlets and no power

First I would make sure there is power to the outlet by plugging something else in.

How to check stuff>
Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.

Lights are on but compressor won't work. Less than 2 years old.No display on temp control.
. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back onand listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries tostart.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overloadrelay.

If the relay is ok the problem is the compressor which normally has a five year warranty.

The regrigerator is not working at all. Checked

If you tested the outlet and have power there,I would call the manufacture if it's only 3 months old. You have 1 year on all major brands. It's most likely a bad compressor. Frigidaire's are bad for this just to name one.

Refrigerator just stopped running - light is on

Hello myrtlebeach

You said, your refrigerator isn't running - food getting warmer and the light is on inside

Need clarification
What is the model number and the year?????????????

Do you hear only silence
Check that there is still power in that outlet.
You can use a small lamp to test the outlet for power.
When you unplug the fridge to test the outlet, leave the fridge off for 5 minutes.
Then plug it back in and see if this reset the system.
You may have a freon leak and the compressor will not turn on.

If the fridge is old you may find this article I just read interesting.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
