Question about LG LRFD25850 French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Bottom freezer door/drawer won't close all the way on one side.

I have an LG French Door refrigerator with bottom drawer freezer. We just noticed that one side of the freezer drawer is not closing all the way and the food inside is frosty. If you push on the one side it will close, but it won't stay all the way closed without being pushed on. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I had this exact same problem. I noticed that as I was closing the drawer, the two sides were not actually parallel, and it seemed to be because of the bar that connects both sides with the gear on each end. I opened the drawer all the way and forced one of the gears to jump a tooth to make the side that wasn't closing get closer to the fridge. Voila! Both sides are parallel, and the freezer now closes fully and evenly!

Remove all the food from the freezer and then the drawer from the cabinet. Now using a silicone based lubricant, lube the tracks up real well. Be sure to clean the tracks first if gunked up. Make sure nothing small fell out of the basket over time and is laying on the floor in the rear of the freezer section. Once done, you should be fine.

    The problem is that the plastic drawer runner has collapsed ie the runner top surface has collapsedleaving a hole at the front of the runner. The drawer sinks into this hole and cannot be closed.

Water leaking into bottom of refrigerator section


Make sure you dry everything in the freezer when you have the door open and remove ice. It won't be a leak it will simply be the warm air inside the freezer that has turned into condensation. Double check the seal around the door to see if it curled up as that could be letting warm in and cold out giving same results.

Frost on back wall of freezer


There is a door that is not closing 100% of the time. There is warm moist air entering the fridge and building up on the back wall.

Make sure all doors are closing. Sometime the bottom door will close on one side but not the other.

Good Luck.

We have the bottom drawer freezer, top french doors, 3 months old, freezer will not shut all the way and now after door open beep has gone off for an hour the whole unit has gone dark


Make sure nothing has fallen behind the freezer drawer or is hitting the top of the freezer to prevent it from closing. Also check that the tilt open front is in the closed position. If nothing is blocking the drawer the gear wheels that support it may not be in the right position. See Owners Manual for instructions about removing/reinstalling the drawer. When you get the drawer to close you may have to unplug the power cord for 30+ seconds to get the unit to reset and restart.

My freezer is frosting...there is snow all over


In my case with constant snow and frost build-up in my bottom drawer GE freezer, it was because the drawer never properly closed. As one user noted, "there is no adjustment." However, there are "catches" at the rear of the drawer glides and in my case one needed adjustment because it was preventing the drawer from remaining closed tightly. SEE PHOTOS. The photos show many items removed, but to make this repair, you only need a butter knife to pop out the black plastic catch mechanisms at the back end of the drawer glides, and only if you can see that the spring is not properly positioned.
