Question about Refrigerators
Came home the other evening and all the frozen goods were thawing out and the fridge was warm. Unplugged and let it set overnight thinking it may have frozen up. Plugged back in and still will not cool down regardless of where you set the temps. Panel is functional and lights work, fan and compressor both run, but no cooling to either section. What is going on here?

I would check this main board I personally have repaired many of these units and the LG electronics are not made well and usually become problematic within 2 years on this unit and a similar kenmore unit also made by LG. Have you assured that also the compressor fan is working as well? I await your reply

The most likely fault is a problem with the defrost cycle. The most likely is the defrost heater which should be a solid bar which is located directly underneath the coil. If you are capable then you can generally unplug the connectors for the heater and check that you have a resistance across the ends if the heater is faulty it will be open circuit. If it is not open circuit then it could be the defrost sensor or defrost timer at fault. You can also generally tell if the heater is warped or cracked. Hope this is of some help.

If the fan inside the freezer is running and the compressor behind the fridge is running and is hot to touch, you have a gas problem or the compressor is inefficient. This can only be confirmed by connecting refrigeration gauges to the gas system and should only be performed by a fridge tech.

if the freezer is freezing and the fan working in the freezer and the fan at the compressor is working and you have no frost build up on the back wall of the freezer caused from a defrost problem -then turn your controls back to the middle. one of the controls is a thermostat control and the other control is merely an air diverter from the freezer to the refrigerator. if you close this diverter down too much (by putting it on 9)it will leave most of the air in the freezer.
bottom line if the freezer is working properly and freezing good all the time then the refrigerator should be ok as well unless you have diverted most air to the freezer. allow 24 hours after you have changed the settings.
you can feel air blowing in the back of the refrigerator at the top next to the freezer and can adjust the diverter control and feel the difference it makes. most of the time the control you use is labeled freezer and if you put both controls on 9 then your freezer will be the coldest but the refrigerator won't get as much air. the thermostat control can be left at 5 or higher (this is the control that turns the refrigerator off) but leave the other control at 5
if this doesn't work you have probably got problems with your freezer also and may not know it yet.
