Check the Temperature Settings. One of the most common fridge problems is with the temperature settings. If your refrigerator is not reaching the desired temperature, it is essential to check the temperature settings before doing anything else. Check to ensure that the correct temperature range has been set by adjusting the control panel. Sometimes adjusting a setting will be all you need to do get your fridge working again.
Verify the Power Supply and Operational Status of the Compressor. To make sure that your LG refrigerator is running correctly, it is important to check the power supply to the compressor. Unplugging and reconnecting the electricity cables, or replacing a blown fuse may be all that’s needed to get your fridge working again. You should also verify that the LG refrigerator’s operational status by checking the temperature control panel for any errors. If you find any issues here, it could be an indicator of a bigger problem and it’s best to have a professional examine your refrigerator.
Clean or Replace the Condenser Coils and Evaporator Fan Motor if Necessary. If your LG refrigerator is not cooling properly, it could be from a clogged or dirty condenser coil. The coils should be cleaned at least once a year with a vacuum cleaner to remove lint and dust. Additionally, if the evaporator fan motor isn’t working correctly, it can also cause problems with cooling. Replace this part if necessary and make sure that there is no debris blocking the flow of air around the motor.
Inspect any Leaks in Doors, Seals or other Areas of Wear & Tear. Check for worn and aging door gaskets or seals. Inspect all the edges of the refrigerator to make sure they’re properly sealed. If there is a leak, it can prevent air from getting into the unit and cause cooling issues. Additionally, check for ice buildup around the ice maker in the freezer as this can be a sign of leaks too. If you find any signs of wear and tear, replace them immediately to restore proper cooling again.
Examine Evaporator Coil Temperatures to Check for Freezing Issues. Freezing problems can indicate an issue with the temperature control. Check your evaporator coils to see if it’s too cold, which can occur when the refrigerator is overworking itself. If you find that temperatures are too low, adjust the settings and make sure the unit is level to help with circulation. Additionally, clean off any dust that may be clogging air vents to improve air flow.
