Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / LG LFX25950sb light stays on
« Last post by BryanS on June 30, 2016, 03:29:03 PM »
Does anyone have this bulletin with the kits numbers? I know I put on many kits for this at Sears.  The kit had a main board, new light assy with bimetal, and shrouds etc.  I have a customer who needs this but we aren't LG authorized.  I will probably have her call them to see if they will send the kit.

never seen a .25 amp draw in person, but I've heard of super low amperage compressors.

in general I was always told that running amps for a traditional compressor are going to be 1/10th the locked rotor amperage rating on the tag...

You have a leak or bad compressor. if you are getting that amp draw it would indicate a bad valve in compressor or no gas.  if you add gas and amp draw did not increase i would suspect a bad compressor discharge valve . if it was a leak you would hear it if it lost gas that quickly.

this unit is a top freezer and bottom fridge no dual system , I have not heard of a fridge drawing .25 amps, now i am really confused . Seems to me that at that amperage the compressor is vamonos, but thanks either way.When a compressor is drawing very low amperage its an indication of no freon or bad compressor as i have researched on some websites.You have a very nice day and thanks
