1 Answer

LG LFC23760SB Refrigerator doesn't have power. The outlet is ok. Didn't have a power surge.

Opened the refrigerator this morning to find that the lights weren't on. I thought perhaps the door was left slightly open Then, I realized that I didn't hear the compressor or ice maker working. I checked the main circuit breaker, and it was normal. I checked the outlet, and it had power. The ice maker had become slightly noisier than usual. Could an issue with the ice maker cause the entire unit to stop working?

I think there is problem with your compressor unit. You need some maintanance or service of your refrigerator at regular period.

SOURCE: LG refrigerator french door icemaker not working

The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: The ice maker on my LSC27950ST has stopped

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

LG LFC21760ST Beeping Constantly again. Last time it cost me a fortune to replace the computer board. Isn't there a cheaper way to stop the sound?


I would suggest starting with the easiest troubleshooting tip first. Try unplugging it for 10 minutes and plugging it back in. Most (modern) appliances will reset to factory defaults when they are unplugged for a few minutes.

Check breaker. Was there a surge of electricity when the power went out. This may be a simple fix. Sounds like the breaker is tripped. Test the outlet with a light to see that power is to it.

Woke up this morning and the fridge was not working, It is like there is no power on to it. I checked the breaker and it was not tripped I did reset it to check but still nothing.


If there is not lights or anything in the refrigerator, then you aren't getting power. Start out checking the outlet - if you don't have a multimeter to check it, use a hair dryer plugged in to that outlet to see if it will work. If it doesn't then it is between that outlet and the main circuit breaker box or even a bad circuit breaker.

If it does work or you have lights in your refrigerator it is probably either the starting capacitor, start relay or compressor.

LG refrigerators are more sensitive to power fluctuations than other models and we have had to replace a lot of starting caps and relays - but sometimes it is the compressor.

Hope this helps!

Our power went out for a few minutes yesterdat and since then our refrigerator and freezer aren't working. What could cause this problem? -Thanks.


first of all I would check the outlet where your fridge is plugged in to make sure the power surge didn't affect it. maybe plug in a lamp. if it is ok, and the fridge will not start at all, i would check the relay/overload on the compressor as it may have been compromised by the power surge when the power came back on. these components start the compressor which in turn starts the cooling/freezing of your fridge. hope this helps.

When plugged, it shorts the surge protector and outlets.


I noticed that my refrigerator, kenmore freezer2_bing.gif, and stove were all not on. This has not ever been a problem before, so I unplugged the surge protector and reset the outlet. I then plugged the refrigerator2_bing.gif and the kenmore freezer to the surge protector and I noticed when I plugged the kenmore freezer it just shorted the surge protector. I then just plugged in the refrigerator and oven to the surge protector with no problems. I tried to plug kenmore freezer to other outlet and same result "a short
