Question about LG LRFD22850 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator French Door
I have an lg bottom freezer LRFC22750ST. This is the 2nd time we hear the fridge getting really loud. Starts by humming when doors closed stops when open now fan/motor is loud when closed still stops when open. The fridge is 3.5 yrs old- 1st time feb 2008 we had it serviced by calling lg canada they replaced the sensor telling us we open our fridge too much? I think the right side seal on the fridge appears to be not as strong as the left and maybe when closing the doors the right side with the weaker seal is left open and the motor starts overworking??? Please help!!!
The fan goes off when door opened and when closes it will turn back on is normal operation of fan and door control --as to noise --fan may be failing ---iced over ----if seal failing will cause unit to run more and allows more moisture into evap which can cause more ice over

When the filter freezes up, the outside casing may have cracked and will leak water when you dispense water through the door. You will need to have the filter replaced and that should take care of the problem. But the filter should never have frozen in the 1st place. You will need to call a qualified LG technician to see what's going on inside the refrigerator.

Look at the bottom of the freezer door, there is a little plastic stopper there. It may be worn out or broken. When you close the door this is what holds it there. Start there first.

I don't usually buy the service plan but I did for this unit (hey it's gen 1). The service guy said he has seen this problem quite a bit and that LG created a new RCM board to fix it (part# BBR34917104). Apparently the OEM board didn't detect the ice build up on the fan motor very well. I had the new board installed two days ago and defrosted the freezer. So far so good, I'll post again if I have any further issues.

I found another post that suggested the following. Did it and found wires/connections frozen with a huge piece of ice.
Make sure unit is unpluged!
Removed baskets (2), unscrewed back panel of freezer. A little tricky to get out. There will be electrical connections attached to the panel but you can disconnect/reconnect these. Mine were on the top, left corner. I used a blow dryer to melt the ice chunck. Dried up all the water, replaced back, baskets.
I then took the panel off the very back of the unit as the melted ice had drained into the drip pan. I cleaned the drain pan of water, dust. They don't make this an easy task for the homeowner. Replaced the back, plugged it back in and all is working again. Don't know for how long until this happens again. But....no more LG products for this homeowner.
We remodeled the kitchen 2 years ago and went stainless steel. My 16 year old Kitchenaide is still running in the garage. Guess I'll go back to that model when the LG bits the dust.
