Question about LG Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have an LG refrig french door model LFX 31925ST/00. Purchased less than 2 months ago. The top plastic freezer door continues to get an ice build up on the front of the drawer only. Is this normal? It's as if warm air gets in at the top of the freezer portion only and then ices up on the front of the pull out plastic drawer.

It sounds like a loose or bad seal on the top area of the freezer door. Use the old dollar bill test to see how good the seal is. Hold a dollar bill up to the seal and close the door. there should be some resistance. compare the resistance between the top and bottom of the door.

If it is a magic chef the model number will be on the back of the fridge and will have to order the exact defrost timer for this model. Only place to get will be from repairclinic.com

Model # MFF2557HES Top refrigator section stoped cooling freezer is working


You may have Ice buildup in the freezer. You freezer has a fan in the bak that sends the cool air to the fridge. Your fridge dial determines how muh cold air comes from the freezer. Try defrosting the freezer. You may have to pull the back panel off of the inside of the freezer to get the ice thawed. The ice build up is likely causing the air to not get to the fridge. Hope it works.

Ice is forming on bottom of refrig. under the freezer bin. Suspect it is the defroating system malfunctioning. Repairable without calling an expert?

Roaring sound


I have had the same issues. I have owned my LFX25960 for 18 months. All the cooling, noise, and condensation problems are related to 2 fans. One for the freezer/refrigerator compartments and One for the Ice Maker. The fans, apparently, are not sufficient to move enough air through the coils located behind a plastic panel in the freezer compartment. The part numbers for my fans are 1. Ice Maker 4681JB1029E and Refrig/Freezer 4681JK1004E. It is not impossible, but fairly difficult to replace them yourself. You have to remove the large slide out freezer drawer and glides. Then work the back freezer panel loose from the bottom. Be careful not to break it. It is plastic.
Routine maintenance: Pull the refrig out from the wall and blow-out the coils and fan located on the lower right rear. You might find it easier to do this by removing the cover on the lower, back of the refrig.

Fridge on top of freezer is not chilling


if you have a french door (also known as bottom mount, freezer on bottom) and your fridge sections(cold air blows from freezer to refrig) is not cooling try this

1. ensure you hear the fan running, its it not, thats it(most likely fan motor
IF fan is running check these things
1. ensure refrig section light shuts off by holding down the switch
2. ensure door shuts
3. clean conderser coils (usually accessed from front through base grille)
4. check for icing in vents, freezer section contain them at top or back, and for a bottom mount the refrig sections vents are under your BIG drawer. if iced try a hair dryer from distance. or empty food into another fridge unplug open doors, and plug back in two days later this should defrost all ice build up

LFX 25950TT problem


Just had this same problem. We were away at Disney for four days - turned the icemaker off before we left. We have the LG french door double drawer freezer model. Came home, the ER IF code was displayed. Wouldn't dispense water or ice. Took the icebox out, and it was all frozen in the augers. Then I read on the door something to this effect - "if you turn off the icemaker, it will not continue to cool the ice. This will cause the ice to melt and leak out of the unit, and when it refreezes, the dispenser will not produce ice or water."

So, I took the ice box out, emptied it, reinstalled it, and the unit os making ice and dispensing water as I write.

Again, if you turn off the icemake, empty the ice box, or you will get the error message when you start the ice maker again.

LG LRFC22750 Bottom freezer french door refrigerator


6343ed3.jpg The problem is ice build up on the back wall. The noise you hear is the fan blades hitting the ice. On the back wall water gets trapped, it then builds up over time, and a big ball of ice forms and blocks the fan. Take off the back wall, defrost the build up and cut the insulation off as above. The water will no longer get trapped and the problem will not come back.
