Question about LG LFC23760SW Side by Side Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

LG Model LFC23760 (French Doors, bottom freezer) power prob

Fridge appears to have no power. It is plugged in to a working outlet; all fuzes are ok in the fuzebox. No lights in the refrigerator, and no cooling. Is there a fuze in the fridge, or a place where the power might be easily disconnected?

Unplug fridge.
Open panel on back of fridge (the one at hip height that says Service Panel Only - Do Not Remove, blah blah blah)

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.
I nuked the original fuse, the end-caps and the wires that went from the end-caps/fuse to the motherboard. I replace those 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 from the motherboard to the wire harness.
So far, so good!
Good luck to you.

The fridge has lost power


hi here,
something might be wrong with the wiring that connects the power wire to the fridge. better have someone professional take a look at it as it's a delicate solution. Better yet, try plugging the fridge somewhere else, maybe your current plugging socket has problems.

Our refrigerator LG Model #LFC23760 just quit working. We checked the plug and it is good. Not sure what to do next. There is no power to the unit. Nothing is working.


fuse blew, if you have a contract have it repaired but try to keep the old mother board. (they just throw it away anyway, otherwise they are not authorized to work on LG units) you will see the culprit fuse. have it replaced in an electronic shop, (have them put in a fuse holder) and keep a few extra fuses Just in case... next time you could replace the board yourself.

I have a similar manual that shows just what you are up against. How about the power cord itself? Is it ok?

Refrigerator no power


Plug some other device into these same outlets or use a volt meter to verify power at the outlet.
You definitely have a house wire problem if the interior light does not come on and the bulb is good.
Also check 120 volts power at the fridge cord where it attaches to the terminal box.
