First, I'm not a LG Technician. Call your LG vendor for service.
*** the following is for information only. ***
* Move food items to another refrigerator.
* Do a complete DEFROST of the box. (unplug it.) Expect it to take 4 or more hours. You must wait till all water stops dripping out of the fridge. Keep checking the lower defrost drip tray at bottom of fridge. Dump out water from tray as needed. DO NOT you a hair drier or any other heat source! The heat will warp the plastic. Use a small fan to gently blow into the freezer section.
* DO NOT use an ice pick or sharp object to remove ice! Just let everything melt. (The problem of ice is inside the coils)
* Plug in Fridge but don't put any food in. Set dial temperature to the Mid range setting. Set to freezer venting to normal. Set the refrigerator to mid range. Let it cool down to 0 - 10 degrees and start making ice (in ice maker) If it does not cool down to at least 10 degrees F then call for service. Suspect bad thermostat, Blocked condenser coils, Bad pump, etc. Qualified service tech required to repair.
* Cooling okay? Reload food but don't stuff it in. Leave space between the walls to allow cold air to flow around foods. It will take a day or so to cool down food properly. Note: I may take longer if this fridge is near a heat source like a Hot water heater, Oven, Range, Steam radiator, etc.
* If your still icing up in 2-3 weeks. Then check if the coils are icing up. Defrost is not working. This needs to be checked by a tech. Have him perform annual maintenance.
* Check door seals. Kids leaving the door open? High humidity? * Note how everyone uses the fridge; are they putting hot food in it? Open hot steaming food adds heat and humidity to fridge. Hot food with thaw out other frozen food and build up frost.
* Final, Have a Tech check your fridge. Have them perform maintenance and replace worn items as needed.

Sounds like you have a sealed system leak. If youre getting 0 frost or only at the entering the freezer area with an ice ball, then, i hope you bought a warranty. Check user manual for potential sealed system warranties. If your fridge has a dual evaporator system, the 3 way valve could be stuck or have a restriction in it at well. Not likely though, I would recommend replacing both lowside if the fridge seems like it should be cooling with all the doors shut and good seals. I rarely would call out such an expensive repair, but Im not there physically seeing it, so use best judgement.

A common cause for a clog is frozen water in the line. There is also a possibility that the water filter for the ice maker is clogged.

Possible Fix: Locate and replace the water filter. Filters for icemakers are typically located inside the refrigerator (to keep them from freezing)

Did you lay it down to transport?

I not sure what kind of reset button you need. I don't see one in these diagrams. But let the whole thing defrost.

There are two inline fuses in the pc board area on the back of the unit. Both soldered in but you can check for continuity.

Tap to view the compressor. Do you feel it works?
Good luck.

If you have an icemaker and water dispensor that is connected to the house water line, you need to locate that line and shut if off at the connection. The water might be from the defrost cycle that the unit uses though. If it is not appearing all the time, appears to be dirty or a fixed size puddle, the issue is with the defroster and not the water dispensor.

Remove the door and reverse the brackets, mount it to the opposite side. Be careful when removing and mounting as it's not extremely heavy but awkward and you can damage the threads in the body of the unit itself, just be careful and get a family member, friend or neighbor to help. I just done this a few weeks ago, a bit of competent help is best!

Let me know if this is helpful by clicking "Helpful", feel free to leave very brief review or follow me, I deal with automotive/mechanical/technical and other subjects relevant to daily life. Thanks and have a great day!

Check trap door where ice is dispensed out of that it is airtight

LG Refrigerators | Answered on Jan 12, 2019

Yes it can be fixed but you will need a service technician. You can call Sears service.

Best of Luck,
