20 Most Recent LG LFC23760SW Side by Side Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator Questions & Answers


Unplug the unit and remove the board cover. The fuses are soldered in but can be changed with a soldering iron. They are glass and easily spotted on the board.

Put the LG in the trash. I did after pay 150.00 three time to fix the latches that kept breaking. LG stands for Loads of Garbage.

Do you see any ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer or behind it?
Is the compressor running?

Needs either a defrost thermostat, heater or timer. Fan hitting frost is the noise.

The fuse is absolutely replaceable, not sure to what the other poster is referring. I just replaced the fuse today (not the main computer, nor the motherboard, nor anything else but the fuse and the approx 1/2" metal wires/leads running from the motherboard to the fuse.
I did mention that others were having problems with this unit to LG Customer Service at that phone number and they were unable to help me out other than to say, Sorry, you don't have an extended warranty on your 15 month old fridge? That's too bad. We feel really bad about that....
Good info about the lights staying on in the fridge though they should be off if the doors are open. Sounds like a larger problem if the lights are always on.
LG's suggestion was that the fridge go on a dedicated line and breaker from your main panel. It's probably good advice and it is advice that I will follow up with a call to my electrician.

More info below:
Here is a little more review:
Unplug fridge. Pull out from wall. Be careful not to stress/break ice-maker line if installed.
Open panel on back of fridge (the one at hip height that says Service Panel Only - Do Not Remove, blah blah blah)
See pictures of opened panel here: http://www.amazon.com/LG-LFC23760SW-French-Refrigerator-White/dp/B00198A5C0/ref=cm_cmu_up_thanks_hdr (more comments posted on Amazon regarding LG Customer Service)
Replace fuse with 9A 250V slow-burn fuse. I used a gray fuse harness from Radio Shack so that if the fuse needs to be replaced again I can just pop in a new one without doing the soldering over.
Since I nuked the original fuse, the end-caps and the wires that went from the end-caps/fuse to the motherboard. I replaced the leads (wires) with some I scavenged off a fresh thermal fuse (also bought at RS, just needed the wires themselves which seemed to be the same diameter/gauge as the original leads) and ran them through the back of the motherboard to the wire harness.
Use a hot iron. (but don't burn yourself).
So far, so good!
If still working in a few hours enjoy a cold beverage... you just saved yourself a lot of $$! The company LG recommended to buy parts was closed (it was a Saturday) and HHGregg was open but they wanted $273 for a replacement motherboard. A trip to RS even if you had to buy a soldering iron and solder is still cheaper than that.

Good luck to you.

First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it seems
to be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
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 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
Check cold control (thats where you turn it colder)

I have the same issue - along with ALOT of other people I've seen posting on the internet. Even though it's a 20 cent fuse, you have to replace the ENTIRE $200 control board. I say this is a defect (intentional?) built in to happen exactly 13 months after purchase.

Usually a blown fuse is an indication of a bigger problem I would have to ask what makes you believe that the fuse is blown? Can you solder and do other electronic things? If you can then you can TRY to replace the fuse. IT can be done but unless you figure out what causes it to fail, it is likely to fail again.
