LG LFX25950sb Frenchdoor fridge not getting cold , need help
« on: September 24, 2015, 02:11:17 PM »


Hello , I have a LG LFX25950sb Frenchdoor fridge that doesnt seem to want to get  cold . Air isnt being circulated through the vents in the fridge section . air is being circulated in the freezer but it isnt cold , slightly cool , but not cold .




when i put the fridge in test mode no air seems to be comming out of these vents at all


 



but air is currently being blown though the top circular vent that leads into the icemaker . and air is being blown into the freezer section , it is slightly cool but not cold




 So far i have ..

1. cleaned the condenser coils in the back as well as the fan
2. bought a new pcb board and replaced the old one


3. replaced the relay



any help would be much appreciated

Low on charge or restricted considering you didn't mention error code.  It's possible that your fan isn't working but without error i doubt it.  Are you holding in door switches y that are working?  Set the alarm to on and make sure it doesn't think the doors are open when closed and preventing the fan from operating

Hello domain, thank you for the reply . you mention the fridge might be restricted in some way how would i go about resolving such a restriction ? and if my fridge does have a low charge , i assume that would be a seal system problem in which i would need a pro to get that resolved , or is there a way for me to charge it myself ?

once again thanks for your help

Restriction and low are both sealed system related
