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.

Fridge Ices Up Even on the Warmest Setting (Freezer Working Fine)


Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
If it runs then that cold control is the problem.

I have a Dometic fridge model number RM2612 in a camper that i just purchased used and the fridge isn't cooling. The freezer section seems to be okay. The metal plate in the freezer gets cold but


Make sure it is level, has proper airflow out through top vent. Also check baffle, or stack where flame sits under and blow it out good with compressed air to make sure it's clean. If you smell a hint or strong smell of ammonia, shut it off, it has a leak in cooling unit. If all ok in that area, shut it off, disconnect and plug propane line, disconnect power and remove the fridge. Turn the fridge upside down for a day or 2, then re-install and let it sit 24 hrs before turning it back on. Quite often that will take care of any blockage in flow of cooling liquid, and get things back to normal if cooling unit is still good.

Frigidaire SbS fridge FRS26ZGED3 intermittent - smacking helps


I have been looking over the wiring diagram for about 10 minutes. I see nothing other than the thermostat being the problem. I need someone to unplug the refrigerator and go into the control panel and disconnect the two wires going to thermostat and plug refrigerator back in and then give me the results. You feel comfortable doing that? Sea Breeze

Well, your answer would seem to be simple...but in truth it could be many a issue. Just because the light is on does't mean anybodys home. Basic, (a) the cold control (dial in fresh food section that usually shows the word "off" at the warmest point on the dial) try turning it up to its coldest. Sometimes it might not reset after it turns off when it senses its cold. Also try tapping in the area of the control. If the freezer fan is not operating this or the defrost control could be the issue. (b) The defrost timer (mechanical or electronic) might have fail to advance out of defrost. Advanced items, (a) The compressor and or compressor relay and overload might be bad. (b) The evaporator fan is not operating (controled by the cold control circuit). (c) the condenser fan failed, which will cause the compressor to fail or shut down due to overheating. (the condenser fan is controled through the compressor circuit. These advanced items would need a multimeter and a understanding of circuit diagrams.

Both fridge and freezer aren't getting cold enough in my Maytag Fridge


if they are both cold, but not cold enough, one of two likely scenarios, one minor, one major. the major one, you haev a sealed system leak of refrigerant, several hundred dollars to repair.

the minor, your condenser fan motor is not running, its job is to cool the compressor, if its not cooling the compressor, when the compressor gets too hot, it will shut itself down, while the fridge continues to run. when this happens, the unit seems fine first thing in the morning, but by evening it seems less fine...while everyone sleeping, doors have been closed, allowing unit to "catch up". replace fan motor.

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.
